Hi, sorry to hear about your boyfriend's valplast tooth in need of replacement. Dr. Bornfeld is a great Dentist, but he must be out of town, as he's been unavailable to answer your question for almost 10 hours. He is likely out of town.

Here is what I would suggest: Valplast is great material. I like it. However, Dentists almost exclusively cannot totally fixate a valplast denture tooth properly without using the assistance and help from a local Dental Lab who has the equipment for fixing and solidifying your tooth back to where you want it. And, it's not possible for a Dental Lab to see patients. A patient must see the Dentist. So, I'd recommend seeing the Dentist of choice in Auburn (see list: http://www.whitepages.com/business/WA/Auburn/dentists), and almost any of the Dentists listed can then fix the tooth and have it repositioned as desired, by using the services of a good Dental Lab. I hope that helps you!

Dr. Rampton
