Are you struggling with missing or damaged teeth and are curious about your options? Sure, you’ve heard about dentures, but images of older relatives with ill-fitting dental appliances may concern you.

Rest easy; modern dentures differ vastly from those your grandmother may have worn. According to Statista…Click to learn more in a new window…, more than 40M people have dentures in America.

Understandably, you may have more questions, so in this blog, we’ll explore today’s dentures, including the cost.

Dr. Krysta Sellers, our dentist in Bismarck, ND, is often asked questions, so we decided to shed some light and provide details today.

  • “Will they look natural?”
  • “Are they worth it?”

How much do custom dentures cost?

The costs vary considerably depending on many factors.

You could be looking at a range from $1000 – $15,000 per arch.

The specific price depends on the quality of the materials used.

  • A basic set of complete dentures is $600 – $1,500
  • Midrange quality is between $1,500 – $3,000
  • A premium set could be $3500 – $15,000

However, dentures can change your life regardless of cost, making them a worthwhile investment.

The costs provided represent the average cost for dentures nationwide, and it doesn’t necessarily reflect the dental prices at Aesthetic Dental Center.

Influencing factors

Just like patients, dentures are unique.

They are not a one-size-fits-all dental restoration, and the price depends on multiple factors.

  • The patient
  • The materials used
  • The dentist’s expertise
  • Ongoing denture care and maintenance

This means there isn’t a set price, making it hard to answer that question in a blog post.

The different types of custom dentures

If you’re considering dentures, you will want to choose a dentist who creates custom dentures and offers many options to adapt to any smile.

At Aesthetic Dental Center, we offer multiple denture options.

Implant-retained dentures

If you have poor-fitting dentures, this is an excellent option.

It requires placing dental implants in your upper and/or lower jaw.

Then, your denture will securely fit into place, making it easier to eat and smile confidently.

Full dentures

If you’re missing all your teeth on the upper or lower jaw, Dr. Sellers can create a full custom denture to give you a new smile.

Partial dentures

This is a good option for anyone who has lost a few teeth. Partial dentures can fill those gaps to prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting.

Does dental insurance cover dentures?

Every insurance provider is different, so finding a definite answer to this question is complex.

On the bright side, most dental insurance policies cover some denture costs, depending on your coverage.

At our dental practice in Bismarck, ND, we are in-network with the following providers:

What If I don’t have dental insurance?
