The cost of your dentures will depend on three particular factors that will define their price:
Another example of the difference in denture costs can be seen with partial and complete dentures. As complete dentures are for total tooth loss (edentulous cases), they will cost more than partial dentures, which only usually replace one missing tooth or two.
Dentures in the short-term might seem the more affordable option, say, compared to implant dentures. On the face of it, you would only have to pay £850 now for acrylic dentures, compared to £4,000 for implant-supported dentures.
However, as you’ll have missing teeth for life, consider the long-term cost of dentures.
Acrylic dentures, for example, need to be replaced every five years (any longer than this, then the wear would be extremely noticeable), so over thirty years, you would pay £5,100 for dentures, not taking into consideration if they break, become loose fitting or are lost. Your dental appointments and check-ups are, again, another additional cost.
Implant dentures can last 30 years.
Since the average cost of dentures varies, depending on the process and materials used in production, patients can expect to pay anywhere from £270 to £2,500 for a traditional full set. These prices are a rough guideline, whether you choose to go NHS or privately.
Low-costing dentures, made from acrylic, are priced around £270 on the NHS for partials and £500-£700 for complete dentures. Bear in mind – and we’re not just saying this, that they’re generally made less aesthetically attractive and often result in a less natural look.
Mid-priced dentures in comparison (between £850 and £1,250) look more natural and tend to have better longevity in comparison to low-cost dentures.
The more you pay for dentures, the better quality materials used, the more customisable and the most authentic look achieved.
If you have private health insurance, it might be worth checking if your plan/insurance company covers dentures or implants. Some plans cover insurance for dentures and implants, but others do not.
However, it might be worth noting that each insurance company has an annual spending cap, which can help contribute to your restorative costs.
