Dentures are the most common and cost efficient method of replacing missing teeth. Most insurance companies provide at least some coverage for them if they’re medically necessary, unlike dental implants that typically fall under the cosmetic category. At All Star Dental, we understand that you have cost concerns if you’re considering this procedure. Most patients want to know “How much do dentures cost?” before they agree to get them.
Factors Affecting Dentures Cost
For basic dentures, the cost averages $300 to $500 per plate. This comes out to approximately $600 to $1,000 for both the upper and lower sets of replacement teeth. However, budget dentures do have their drawbacks. They tend to look unnatural compared to more expensive types and are not custom fit to your mouth. Additionally, these sets of dentures usually come with only a limited warranty.
At the midpoint price range, you will pay around $500 to $1,500 per plate or $1,000 to $3,000 for a full set of dentures. They offer a good customized fit and come with either a one or two-year warranty.
The most costly dentures are approximately $2,000 to $4,000 per plate or $4,000 to $8,000 for the full set. These are fully customized and constructed from high-end materials to guard against cracking and chipping. The warranty may be as long as five to 10 years.
The cost range for removable partial dentures ranges from $300 to $4,000. Choosing gold material rather than ceramic or acrylic increases the cost. If your remaining teeth still need to be extracted, the cost varies from $75 to $450 per tooth.
Schedule a Consultation to Learn More about Your Denture Options
The above costs are only rough estimates because so many individual factors come into play when determining the final price. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ahmad or Dr. Ammari at All Star Dental to learn more about full or partial dentures. No matter how you decide to replace your missing teeth, it’s important to allow adequate time to adjust. Full functioning will return before long and you will forget they’re not your natural teeth.
