Denture Costs – Investing in Your Smile
If you’ve lost all of your teeth, complete dentures can give you a new smile. Partial dentures can restore missing teeth if you’ve only lost a few. Replacing your missing teeth is important. Without them, your other teeth can shift or tilt, and you’ll suffer gradual bone loss, which can make your face appear much older than it is. You’ll also find it more difficult to chew and bite properly, and you may miss out on your favorite foods. Today’s dentures are nothing like old-fashioned false teeth. The best dentures are functional, comfortable, and made to last. If the cost of dentures is a concern, a little knowledge goes a long way.
Factors Affecting the Cost of Removable and Permanent Dentures
In almost all cases, affordable quality dentures are within reach, but treatment prices can vary widely based on the following factors:
- Denture fabrication times
- Length of warranty
- Complexity of the dentures
- Dental insurance coverage and co-pays
- Location of dentist
- Expertise and credentials of dental provider
- Additional extractions or other preparations required
The Best Dentures Are the Ones that Fit Your Budget
If your insurance policy doesn’t cover dentures, or you don’t have dental insurance, third-party financing may be available. Your dentist may also be able to set up a payment option that meets your needs. If you have a low income, check with local clinics to see if assistance is available. You may also be eligible for a federal grant to cover costs. If not, consider contacting local dental schools to find out if they offer reduced treatment rates.
