Cost of Dentures

How much your dentures cost depends on a range of factors and can vary considerably based on the type of restoration you need, the materials used, and your dentist’s training and background. Replacing a full arch with a complete denture will typically cost more than a partial denture used to restore a few teeth. However, a partial denture is often more affordable than a fixed dental bridgeImplant-supported restorations provide significant benefits but choosing this option can raise the overall cost of your treatment substantially.

Denture Type

The extent of your tooth loss and whether you require extractions will determine what type of denture your dentist will recommend. Partial dentures are designed to replace two or more missing teeth and are typically secured to remaining teeth using metal wires. A complete traditional denture, in contrast, replaces an entire dental arch and remains in place using dental adhesive.

Your treatment cost will largely depend on the size of your restoration. Full sets of dentures that replace both the upper and lower teeth will almost always cost much more than a partial denture.

Quality and Materials

The material used to create your denture can have a significant impact on both the price of your restoration and the treatment outcome.

  • Low-End: While you can find full dentures for as little as $300, a lower price point will not offer the same comfort, longevity, and appearance as a more expensive restoration. Low-end dentures tend to be a temporary solution for missing teeth and require replacement more frequently.
  • Mid-Range: Mid-range options typically cost about $1,000 for a full set and can offer a more natural fit and appearance.
  • High-End: High-end dentures utilize materials which simulate the natural look and color of the teeth and gums for a more aesthetically pleasing effect. They are also more durable and can offer a superior level of comfort. However, a full set of high-end dentures can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000.

Factors Affecting Cost

Your Dentist’s Experience and Skill

Choosing a dentist with a higher level of skill and training can increase the overall cost of your denture. However, it can also help ensure durable, lifelike results and minimize your need for further treatment.

Insurance and Financing

Most insurance providers offer benefits that cover at least a portion of your dentures treatment. In some cases, the entire restoration may be paid for.

Dental financing is an option for patients whose insurance does not cover the full cost of their denture or those without insurance coverage. Your dentist may offer an in-office payment plan or partner with a third-party financing company, such as CareCredit® or Compassionate Finance®. Financing can help manage out-of-pocket expenses to ensure you receive the quality dental care you deserve.

Invest in Your Smile

Left untreated, missing teeth can have serious repercussions on your oral and general health. By investing in dentures, you can restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Your dentist can provide you with a more detailed assessment of your treatment cost during an initial consultation.
