Dentures Cost Guide: Premium Vs Cheap, And Which Are Best?

Jan 6

For many years, dentures from a dentist near you have been among the most widely used options for tooth replacement. This article describes the varieties of dentures, their prices, benefits, and disadvantages. This will make it easier for you to choose the best action.

Denture prices are a tricky business - each nation may have different guidelines and regulations in place, so it pays to do your research! Most fees can be found from the official associations of denturists that operate within those countries. Stay informed on the latest fee guidelines for optimum results. 


Dental organisations typically publish fee guides in countries where dentists offer this service. For seniors who buy dentures, some governments provide extra coverage.


Basic dentures range from $600 to $1000. Mid-range can cost around $1000 to $2000. After that, premium dentures are estimated to be $4000 to $8000. Removable partial dentures range from $700 to $1800, and after that, we have implant-supported dentures, which costs about $30000 to $50000.


Basic Dentures


Basic dentures can be purchased for as little as $300 to $500 or as little as $600 to $1,000 for a full set of upper and lower teeth, making them an affordable option for anyone looking for a short-term remedy for tooth loss.


These dentures frequently use a cold-curing process, which eliminates the necessity for heating the acrylic used to cure it and shortens the manufacturing process time. In contrast, the acrylic bases of mid-range and premium dentures are heat-cured, making them more robust and long-lasting.


Basic dentures typically have limited warranties and use less expensive denture teeth, which may appear slightly artificial. Unfortunately, they also only last as long as more costly models.


Mid-Range Dentures


For a full set, the costs for midrange dentures can range from $500 to $1,500 per denture or from $1,000 to $3,000. In addition, mid-range dentures are more durable than essential dentures, more individualised, and will have much more realistic-looking teeth.


The length of a warranty can be anything from 90 days to two years. In addition, there may be a money-back guarantee in some circumstances, and the price quoted might include further alterations to the dentures.


Premium Dentures

For an upper or lower plate, premium dentures can cost between $2,000 and $4,000 or between $4,000 and $8,000 or more for a whole set. These dentures will use the best acrylic to mimic gum tissue and the best denture teeth available.


The technician who makes the denture will take extra care to position the teeth so that the acrylic base plate accurately depicts the shape of the gums and has a unique appearance.


An expensive denture will typically include several follow-up visits to fine-tune the fit and a warranty against chipping and cracking that lasts for five to ten years.


Removable Partial Dentures


An affordable removable partial denture costs between $300 and $500. The typical price is between $700 and $1,800. Costing between $2,000 and $4,000, metal-framed partial dentures may come with metal clasps or precision attachments that fit onto crowns or bridges to assist in keeping the denture firmly in place. 


However, using precise extensions requires the crowning of natural teeth, which raises the overall expense of the treatment.


Full Set of Fixed (Implant Supported) Dentures


Usually, 2 to 6 dental implants are used to support implant-supported dentures. Depending on the quantity and type of implants needed, treatment for an upper or lower implant-supported denture may cost anywhere between $15,000 and $24,000 or more. Mini dental implants, for instance, are typically much less expensive.


In some cases, it may be able to alter an existing denture to fit onto the dental implants; thus, costs also rely on the materials used to make the dentures. A complete pair of upper and lower implant-supported dentures are typically from $30,000 to $50,000.


Factors That Affect the Cost of Dentures 


  • The kind of teeth used. For example, high-quality porcelain or acrylic teeth cost more than lower-grade materials. 
  • The number of visits needed to get fitted and adjustments.
  • Special features such as added support, improved stability, and fit.
  • The type of dentist providing the dentures and the location of their practice.
  • Insurance coverage, if any. Some insurance plans offer partial reimbursement for dentures, while others may cover the full cost.
  • Any fees charged by an oral surgeon or other specialists involved in the process.
