From normal wear and tear over the years to dental injuries, it's common for people to need some form of dentures later on in life. They're a proven option for giving back people the full beauty and functionality of their smile. At our dental practice in Chesterfield, we love seeing our patients regain confidence in their smiles after receiving their beautiful, custom, natural-looking dentures. If you'd like to learn more, set up a dentures consultation at our office today!
At Chesterfield Dentistry, we offer two different types of dentures as part of our restorative dentistry services: full dentures and partial dentures. Which one you get will depend on how many natural teeth you have left. If you’re missing all the teeth in your upper or lower arch, then full dentures are for you. If you still have some teeth left, then we can fill in the spaces with partial dentures.
We strongly believe that everyone who wants to restore their smile should be able to. That’s why we have different payment options available so you can find the one that suits your budget best. If for some reason your insurance doesn’t cover your dentures, you can split up your treatment costs into manageable payments with our third-party financing partner, CareCredit. We also have a 20% senior discount and a 20% cash discount. Find out more about our financial options on our Financial page!
The plate or framework of dentures can be made from either resin, flexible polymer, or metal. The artificial teeth in a denture are made from either resin or porcelain. This material closely matches the look and feel of natural teeth.
In general, dentures can be categorized as full dentures (also called complete dentures) or partial dentures. From there you can divide them further based on the type of material they’re made out of. One of the big differences between full and partial dentures is how many teeth you’re replacing and how the dentures stay in place. Full dentures use suction to make a seal with your gums while partial dentures are fixed in place with clasps on your other teeth.
The average cost of dentures really depends on what type you’re getting. They can range anywhere from $500 to $5,000 without insurance. After you come in for a dentures consultation and we take a look at your dental needs, we can provide you with a cost estimate and go over your financial options so you know exactly what you’ll be paying before you even begin the treatment.
