It’s common for people to ask how much their dentures or false teeth are going to cost. We understand that cost is a big factor when deciding where to go to get your dentures made. There are many factors that affect the cost of your dentures (see below) and a multitude of denture plans available , which is why it’s important to talk to a Dental Prosthetist to discuss the best options for you.
All Denture Services Denture Clinic Brisbane offer an obligation free consultation with our Dental Prosthetist. This gives us the opportunity to talk to you about your individual requirements, the cost of your new dentures, as well as the process of preparing and fitting your dentures for you.
Don’t be tempted to look for the cheapest price. As with most things, cheap dentures are exactly that – low quality materials and workmanship – and you’ll usually find you get what you pay for! So you could end up paying much more than you anticipated if your cheap dentures don’t work for you.
How Much do Dentures Cost?
When calculating the cost of your new dentures, the following factors will be taken into account
Materials used to make the denture
Acrylic dentures are the most affordable followed by Flexidentures with Cobalt chrome dentures the highest investment.
How many teeth you need
If you only need one tooth it will be a lot less then if you need ten teeth. Each tooth requires the use of more materials and therefore costs more.
Metal Clasp Retainers
These are included in the price of some dentures but need to be added for other dentures.
You may need special attachments added into your denture to get a better fit.
If your natural teeth are not good enough to use for support then you may require an implant in order to hold your denture in place.
Fillings and Inlays
You may for some reason want to add a filing or inlay so your teeth look like they did before.
Dental Laboratory Costs
Different laboratories charge different amounts. Some dental prosthetists have their own inhouse laboratories like we do, which helps to keep the cost of your dentures down.
Health Fund Rebates
The refund you receive from your health fund can vary greatly depending on your level of cover.
Do you need a full set of new dentures, or partial dentures? A Dental Prosthetist that provides a custom plan following a consultation is what you ideally need. This way your dentures will be made from the ideal materials for you and fit you perfectly.
