What makes professional sfx teeth different to cheap vampire fake fangs?

Professional effect teeth are manufactured to the highest standards for film, theater and musical productions. But where are the differences to cheap offers from carnival stores and online stores? We show where the wheat has been separated from the chaff.

Accuracy of fit

PRO

alphabite sfx teeth only fit the one who ordered it. The actual and original owner. There is a simple reason for this:
They are custom-made to fit exactly that dentition impression. Many actors and actresses report a perfect “snap-in” of our film teeth. The teeth fit tightly, but can be flexibly inserted and removed at any time. A dental impression can be made by 3D scan, impression tray or traditionally by the dentist. More information?

LOW

Cheap fun teeth are made on a standard tray that can be inserted into any mouth. In doing so, the teeth do not have a good hold and accidental spitting out is not uncommon. Other models are adapted to the wearer’s own teeth with glue or adhesive cream.
However, this severely restricts the flexibility of the wearer. Residues on the teeth, problems with loosening or allergic reactions are not uncommon.

Comfort

PRO

alphabite sfx teeth can be worn for hours, even for days. Special care is taken to protect the teeth and gums of the one who wears them and to ensure optimum wearing comfort. The teeth can simply be taken out of the mouth for meals or breaks and then reinserted afterwards.

LOW

Cheap effect teeth often cause injury to the gums or oral cavity during insertion. These products are not designed for wearing over long periods of time.

Optics

PRO

The best fakes you’ve ever seen! Our movie teeth look so realistic that they are indistinguishable from real teeth. Moreover, they are customized by experienced master dental technicians to match the character traits of the wearer.
Creativity in color, shape and texture know no boundaries. Anything is possible.

LOW

Depending on the selection, more or less standard models are available. These are often visually recognizable as fake teeth. Modifications are not possible. People with special bite positions usually cannot wear these standard models.

Material

PRO

Only high-quality, hypoallergenic dental plastics are used, which are also used in dentistry. Safety is a top priority. Every step is carried out under the supervision of the applicable hygiene measures. All products are MADE IN GERMANY and are handmade by master dental technician and “sfx-teeth artist”, Susi Klüpfel along with her team in Würzburg, Germany.

LOW

Effect and vampire teeth from many carnival stores and online stores mostly come from Asia and are mass-produced there out of the cheapest possible plastic.

Functionality

PRO

Depending on the model and requirement of those film teeth, the owners flow of speech is little or not at all hindered. With larger effect teeth, it takes a short time to get used to. Here it depends very much on the particular model and the system on which it is constructed by alphabite dental technicians. With the latest systems it is possible to sing, speak, kiss and much more without any problems.

LOW

Depending on the model, speaking is more or less possible. Due to the lack of customization, it may happen that teeth are accidentally spit out when speaking.

Durability

PRO

We guarantee a minimum durability of 2 years, but we know that many of our own models already exist for 10 years and plus. This makes us happy and a little proud! It’s definitely a long-term-investment.

LOW

Often, it’s just a one-night-stand for these ones. Unfortunately, most inexpensive fake teeth are disposable and thus harm the environment. Higher quality models with adhesive mass/glue can often only be used once, because the mass is only meant for one use or the teeth break when they are removed.
