Dentures and Associated Costs
Greenville Dentures have been a common solution for the replacement of missing teeth for many years. And one aspect of dentures that anyone who has to get them is cost.
Costs for denture treatments can vary greatly depending on many factors. Costs will of course vary depending on where you are located, who is providing the denture treatment, what kind of dentures you need and want, what materials the dentures are made of, and weather or not you have dental insurance.
Here we will look at some basic figures to offer a general sense of some of the costs associated with a few different types of dentures.
Basic Denture Costs
Costing anywhere from $300-$1000 for the full set of lower and upper teeth, basic dentures can be a cost-effective option, especially for those looking for a more temporary solution. These types of basic dentures are usually cold-cured, which means the acrylic is not heated for curing, which cuts down the cost of manufacturing. Because basic dentures usually use denture teeth that also cost less to make they often have a kind of artificial appearance. Basic dentures usually have only a limited warranty and are not built to last indefinitely.
Mid-range Denture Costs
The mid-range dentures are currently estimated to cost anywhere from $1000 to $3000 for the full set. But the mid-range dentures are typically much more “personalized” than basic dentures and usually have teeth that are more durable and more natural in appearance. Warranties on the mid-range dentures will typically last anywhere from 90 days to 2 years.
Premium Denture Costs
Costing somewhere between $4000-$8000 (or sometimes more) for a full set (or about 1/2 for just a lower or upper plate), the premium dentures are high quality and use high quality materials. The denture teeth are more natural looking, and the baseplate is often customized for a better look and functionality. Premium dentures usually come with a longer and more comprehensive warranty- usually 5-10 years. The price of the premium dentures also typically includes follow up visits for fit adjustments and maintenance.
Removable Partial Denture Costs
The removable partial denture usually costs between $300 - $500. However, the partial dentures that have a metal framework can cost more, ranging anywhere from $2,000 -$4,000.
Fixed -Implant Supported- Denture Costs
Implant supported dentures can vary greatly in cost. Treatment can cost anywhere from $15,000 and $24,000 (or possibly much more) for a lower and upper implant supported denture. The cost depends a lot on how many implants are required, as well as the kind of implants that are being used. Typically, for example, mini implant supported dentures are considerably less expensive. Costs will also be affected by the materials used in the implants themselves.
