How much do dentures cost?

Most of our dental patients purchase a 3D digital denture that typically costs $897 per denture. Pricing varies because every mouth is different. Replacing 1 or 2 teeth with a partial denture is about $397, where flexible partials with Valplast offer a supreme fit and contain no metal for $1327.

We also offer No Credit Check financing with payments as low as $75 a month.

How long do you have to wait to get dentures after teeth are pulled?

Once your teeth are removed, you will have to wait about 3-4 weeks before getting complete dentures. We work closely with the top oral surgeons to make sure your gums are ready for new dentures. We also coordinate and design dentures to fit implants.

You also can choose Immediate Dentures, where you can have a full smile the same day, immediately following the removal of natural teeth. Also known as Same Day Dentures, not everyone is a candidate for this process, Learn More.

Are dentures covered by dental insurance?

Most dental insurance plans pay 50% up to $2000. And usually allow only 1 new denture, arch, every 7 years.  IMPORTANT: a cheap denture from another provider may only last 5 years! We only offer Quality and Affordable dentures.

Because of our low prices, the total cost for the services is less than the co-pay you are required to pay to your insurance carrier. Our denture specialists can help you calculate the costs so you can make the best decision.

Does Medicare pay for dentures?

Medicare does not provide coverage for dentures. Routine dental care, including check-ups, cleanings, and dentures, are generally not covered by Medicare. Even in cases where teeth extraction is required before an inpatient medical procedure, Medicare will not cover the cost of dentures after the procedure.

It's important to note that you are responsible for 100% of the cost for non-covered dental services. For more information, you can visit Medicare.gov. Please be aware that policies and coverage may change, so it's advisable to check with Medicare or your insurance provider for the most current information on denture coverage.

How often should I visit the dentist now that I have dentures?

Continue to visit your denturist or dentist once a year. Even if you have lost all or some of your natural teeth, a dental expert will be able to evaluate the fit of your denture.  They can offer suggestions for denture care and hygiene, and check for issues that may arise, such as oral cancer.

What if I have an emergency?

We offer same-day treatment for patients that are in pain and need EMERGENCY services, either in our office or in partnership with a licensed dentist or oral surgeon. We treat our patients like family. It is not unusual for patients to have after hour calls with our denturist. Depending on your dental procedure, we will provide 24 hour contacts if you unexpectedly lost or broke your denture.

Life happens, we understand and we will be there for you. IMPORTANT: Because we have an on-site lab, emergency DENTURE REPAIRS can usually be performed the same day.

How should I clean my dentures?

Cleaning and daily care of new dentures is important to help maintain good dental health. For everyday cleaning, use a soft brush and anti-bacterial dish soap, like Dawn or Palmolive. You may also choose products sold especially to clean dentures. Be sure to brush both the inside & outside of your denture. You want to remove harmful bacteria. We also suggest soaking your denture in water or a denture-cleaning solution when you take them out at night. Read more about Denture Cleaning.

Important Denture Cleaning Tip:

It is highly recommended to hold your dentures over a sink filled with water when you clean them. If you accidentally drop your denture, it will land softly in the basin of water. You may also want to cushion the sink and counter with a soft cloth or towel.

What if my denture is causing soreness on my gums?

Contact us immediately for a Free Adjustment, (for current patients) we can usually fix dentures in a less than 24 hours. It is not unusual for a new denture to create sore spots on your gums. Simply call us and arrange a time of day to return to have your denture readjusted. Modifications and improvements help eliminate sore spots, and WE NEVER charge for denture adjustments if you bought your false teeth from us.

Most people dont wear their dentures because they hurt. Not our patients. We make them fit– guaranteed.
