Did you went to a prosthodontist for dentures? How much your dentures cost? $2000, $3000 or may be as high as $5000? Did you ever pondered that why these charges for dentures vary so much? In actual the amount that you pay for the denture depends on certain variables such as the quality and the functionality along with the longevity of the dentures. Apart from this there will be some additional costs like dentist’s fees and administration expenditure. So, all these things make up the average cost of dentures.

If you have noticed, you would have realized that most dentists offer you several different kinds of dentures based on your budget and your personalized needs. This way you have the variations to opt from a high priced to a low priced dentures. High priced dentures are more comfortable with longer shelf life but simultaneously needs a special care as compared to those with low costs.

The denture price that we have mentioned here are for compete set of  upper and lower dentures. If you want it only for maxilla or mandible than automatically the price will reduced to half. The high end models of dentures will cost you anywhere between $1000 to 5000. You might wonder that this is quite a bit of money; however, what you get in return is worth the investment. When you opt to invest this kind of money in a denture what you get in return is dentures that look like real. Even you wouldn’t be able to make out the difference when you look at yourself in the mirror. The gum portion which is the most difficult part in the denture to look realistic will be so in these dentures. The materials used in these are the best that money can get you. The teeth that are affixed to these dentures are long lasting, durable and made of acrylic resins which will enable you to have a good bite, with no chipping and cracking. You can comfortably use these dentures for years to come.

The lower you move in the chain of dentures based on their pricing then you will notice that they will have a warranty period that is declining from years to months. If you opt for the most basic of dentures which does not offer you a lot in terms of functionality or aesthetics then $300 will be all that you will need to invest in them. But, the flip side of these dentures is that they look far from natural, and are not long lasting too. The person wearing the dentures will not feel extremely comfortable in them and will be able to find out the difference immediately based on the quality.

A mid-range denture is good for all as it offers one great comfort with a fairly natural look to them. They come to one at a range of about $1000 which is good enough for a warranty that lasts anywhere from 1 to 2 years. Lots of patients select midrange dentures and are quite happy with that. Although you might be tempted to buy the cheapest one however, it will not be worthwhile in the long run.

  • I have 22 out of the normal 28 teeth left. I have 10 upper teeth (molars are gone) and 12 lower teeth. I have one 2nd premolar that needs extraction and one 1st premolar that needs extraction. Is it time for dentures or partials? I cannot afford implants.

  • Judy, the super glue is not supposed to be used inside the mouth as it is for external use only. For repairing the dentures self cure resins are used. In my advice you should get the new teeth for the new denture as after using them for so long they must have weared by now.
