Often more affordable than dentures are removable dental appliances meant to look and function like natural teeth. Many patients who have experienced tooth loss and are concerned about the loss of both function and appearances turn to dentures to meet their needs. The cost of same day dentures varies considerably, according to geographical location, the dentist, and type of dentures.
Factors that influence the cost of dentures may include the area in which you live, your dentist, the type of dentures you require, and the quality of dentures you select. Full dentures are designed to replace an entire set of teeth, either the upper jaw, the lower jaw, or the entire mouth. Partial dentures, on the other hand, are for those who have lost only a few teeth and are often an affordable alternative to
The quality of the dentures can determine their price to a great degree. Quality can affect the comfort and appearance as well as the cost. The old adage “You get what you pay for” often aptly applies.
- High-end dentures usually involve a great measure of dental artistry and utilize materials which simulate the natural look and color of teeth and gums to the highest degree possible. The teeth, normally made from composite acrylic resins, are designed to last a long time and often include a warranty against wear and tear, such as chipping and cracking. These life-like dentures can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000 for a full set (upper and lower jaw).
- Mid-range dentures employ many of the same features as their high-end counterparts, with perhaps a lower degree of artistry and a more limited warranty. Patients should expect to pay approximately $1,000 for a full set (upper and lower jaw) of mid-range dentures.
- Low-end dentures may cost as little as $300, but the difference between low-end dentures and mid-range dentures may be great in terms of comfort, longevity, and appearance. For those seeking a temporary solution to missing teeth, however, low-end dentures may be a cost effective choice.
With a majority of conventional dental insurance plans paying up to the policy holder’s “yearly maximum,” cost continues to be a factor even for the fortunate numbers of families who have dental coverage.
