Cost of dentures
(UK Prices Only)

Whilst the price of dentures can vary from practice to practice, we’ve put together a short guide to the cost of dentures we offer here at Maida Smiles in London and the more general fees of the types we don’t offer.

Does the price of dentures depend on anything?

The cost of your dentures will depend on three particular factors that will define their price:

  • The material used
  • The type of denture selected
  • The level of customisation to your denture

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.

Cost considerations of dentures

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.

What about the NHS versus private practice?

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.

Dental insurance and dentures – does it cover missing teeth?

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.

I've been receiving orthodontic treatment for about a year now with Dr. Ines and she's a wonderful mixture of highly skilled and professional, very thorough, and gentle in her approach. She is also super personable and I always look forward to my monthly appointments with her. She's made such a big improvement to my teeth and I'm very happy with my treatment so far -- I highly recommend Dr. Ines. I've also had other treatments with Maida Smiles and always had a great experience, especially with my wisdom teeth removal (by Dr. Pedro) that went very smoothly without any issues. The team's treatment coordinator/dentist nurse Cinthia is also always super kind and helpful if you have any questions or want to understand treatments.

I had the lovely Dr Shankar for a 4 month Invisalign treatment. I mainly had overcrowding that needed sorting out after having had braces as a teenager and not wearing my retainer. Dr Shankar was delightful and has a lovely energy about him that made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. He explained processes well and also gave good advice to help me make informed decisions. I would highly highly recommend him to anyone in the Maida Vale area!

I had 2 wisdom teeth (on the same side) removed by Dr Pedro. I had a much better experience than I expected. One month later, I have completely recovered without any complications. Absolutely recommend!

I was recommended to start my treatment at the clinic and I couldn't be more pleased. It has been 6 months since I put my braces on and I am being followed by Dr. Ines and Dr. Cíntia. I can already see great changes and can't wait for the final result. Excellent professionals. The whole environment is very calm which makes you comfortable. 100% recommend Maida Smiles Clinic.

Following a friend’s recommendation, I brought my eldest daughter to Dr Ines do Carmo for orthodontic treatment. Ines has been brilliant throughout the treatment; she is incredibly passionate about her work and this is reflected in her skilled perfectionism and the amazing results she achieves for her patients. From the start, Ines’ warm and friendly manner succeeded in putting my apprehensive daughter at ease. She was also forthcoming and thorough in her explanations of the treatment, and happy to share her extensive knowledge. My daughter now has an even lovelier smile thanks to Ines. I highly recommend her and will be bringing my younger children to her for their orthodontic treatment.

It was my first time in the clinic and I had a great experience. The staff is very friendly. Samantha was very helpful with booking the appointment and fast replied to my messages. I had an appointment with Dr. Ines do Carmo. She is lovely. She explained all the treatment and the best option for my case. Cintia was helping Dr. Ines with the appointment. Cintia is very friendly. Dr. Ines and Cintia took care of me and made me feel welcome during the consultation. I will continue my treatment in the clinic. I recommend the clinic and especially Dr. Ines do Carmo.

It is my good fortune to have found Dra inês at Maida Smiles Clinic and to have her as my orthodontist. My complex orthodontic treatment, as an adult, defies all laws of physics, but Dra Inês has the most amazing professional expertise and compassion to help and change lives, and she is helping me massively. In each consultation, Dra Inês moves one-step forward to improve my bite, my oral health in general and my smile! I will be forever grateful to Dra Inês for her outstanding care, professionalism and support she provides in each visit, in such a caring and friendly way. I warmly recommend Dra Inês and Maida Smiles Clinic to anyone who os considering orthodontics.

We were on a short trip to London and my wife's implant got loose. We called Maida Smiles and they immediately saw her. They kindly sorted the issue out and my wife was extremely satisfied with the kind, friendly and professional service. Thanks Dr Pedro.

I can’t thank enough Dr Pedro Gutierres and Maida Smiles’ team for guiding me through a multiple teeth extraction operation I had at the clinic recently. I’m a very anxious patient and everyone at Maida Smiles went above and beyond to accommodate my questions, asks and concerns. The operation itself was painless and positively uneventful, healing was quick and after-care second to none. Never thought I’d say this to myself but I’m looking forward to my next dentist appointment at Maida Smiles.
