Finances & Dentures

If you are missing one or even a few teeth then dentures may give you the opportunity to not only show off a full smile again but also to speak and chew normally. Here, our Vancouver dentists discuss the various types of dentures and the cost factors associated with each of them.

What Are The Different Types of Dentures?

The three types of dentures that you will hear about are complete, partial, and implant-supported dentures. Each of these types of dentures comes with its own set of costs.

Complete dentures are the type of dentures that are designed to replace the entire set of teeth on your top or bottom jaw. These dentures will cost more than a partial set as they cover more area.

Partial dentures are a type of denture that will only replace either one tooth or a few missing teeth in a row. This type typically costs the least out of all denture types.

Implant-supported dentures are anchored in the mouth by surgically placed dental implants. This type of denture usually costs the most as there are extra costs associated with the implant itself.

Can Dentures Be Made From Different Materials?

Yes, your dentures could be made out of a variety of materials. The cost can be much higher if you choose to have fully customized and high-quality dentures. 

Most patients consider the cost of customized and high-end dentures to be worthwhile for the fit, functionality, and aesthetic. You will have multiple fitting sessions before and after receiving your custom dentures to ensure they fit correctly.

Immediate Dentures vs One Set

Immediate dentures are made and fitted the same day as your teeth are extracted. Many patients choose immediate dentures rather than waiting weeks for their custom-made dentures to arrive. Prepare to pay more for both sets of dentures if you choose this option.

After your mouth heals from tooth removal it tends to change shape so in the case that you choose immediate dentures then you will have ongoing visits to ensure that your dentures continue to fit.

Extra Costs Associated With Dentures

Apart from the dentures themselves, there can be extra costs that come along with the process of getting dentures that you should be aware of.

For instance, before receiving their dentures, many patients require dental preparation work, such as surgically extracting any remaining teeth or reshaping the jawline. There will be fees involved with these kinds of appointments.

Ongoing costs include dental adhesives, a denture cleaning machine, and cleaning products.
