How Much Do Dentures Cost?
Clinical Dental Technicians offer a range of treatment options to suit everyone. Each CDT will aim to ensure that you understand the different types of dentures they offer. You can expect your treatment to be itemised as part of a written treatment plan.
How much can I expect my treatment to cost?
The cost of dentures varies depending on what kind of dentures you require and whether you have the treatment done privately or through the NHS. The cost of your dentures will vary from clinic to clinic and cannot be determined until the Clinical Dental Technician has given you an assessment.
A general price guide for dentures
A complete denture will cost from £500 upwards in private clinics. Some clinics may charge as much as £1500 or more depending on the techniques, materials used and the time needed to complete the work.
The cost of partial dentures depends on the complexity of the case, number of teeth to be replaced, techniques and materials used. You can choose from a cobalt chrome alloy partial denture, plastic partial denture or a flexible partial denture. Partial dentures can start from £250 for a single tooth but prices do vary.
Implant-retained dentures are more expensive than standard removable dentures, as they contain the components that attach to dental implants and higher quality materials are generally used. It is preferable to use the strongest and most durable materials when manufacturing dentures retained by dental implants, as your new bite can be comparable to that of natural teeth.
You can expect to pay between £1000 and £2000 per dental implant, depending on your needs. The amount of implants placed into your jawbone also affects the cost of the dentures.
Factors affecting the cost of dentures
The complexity and amount of treatment that needs to be carried out and the time involved will affect the cost of dentures, as will the quality of the materials used. The level of experience and techniques used by the Clinical Dental Technician carrying out the treatment will also have a bearing on the cost.
