How much do Dentures cost?
Very often a potential patient will call me with the following question:
“How much do Dentures cost?“.
It is an impossible question to accurately answer over the phone, for many reasons.
Rest assured, we are always looking to provide the most economically viable and suitable solution for patients. Factors to consider when quoting include the anatomy and physiology of the mouth, the type and condition of the patients existing dentures, the patients medical condition(s) (if any) and the dental history of the patient’s dentures. How old are the patients original set and the expectations and attitudes of the patient need to be considered.
In our experience, prices can vary considerably depending on not only the above mentioned factors, but on then quality and longevity of the materials used in producing the new set. All of these factors have an impact on the labour involved and ultimately the success of the Dentures.
It is very important to know that the difference in price between top quality and low quality products are significant.
In our opinion, ringing around multiple laboratories to obtain a cross section of prices will not necessarily result in you getting the best outcome. It is our experience that if one chooses the practice with the lowest price quoted over the phone, the actual fee will be greater in reality! Our recommendation is to book consultations with an ethical practicioners and spend some time determing which solution will work the best for your condition.
As with many things in life, quality comes at a price.
