Whether you have gaps throughout your mouth or are missing all teeth in the upper, lower, or both arches, it can undeniably make your daily life extremely challenging. As you may already know, the impact of tooth loss extends beyond just affecting your ability to smile. Simple tasks like eating become a chore, especially if you once enjoyed chewy or crispy foods. Given these challenges and more, it's worth exploring the option of dentures not only to reclaim your smile, but also to restore your confidence in eating and speaking.

Regardless of the severity of your tooth loss, a custom-made denture can help restore your smile. However, before moving forward with the process, a comprehensive exam with our team is necessary to ensure there are no preexisting dental conditions. For example, if you have gum disease or tooth decay, these issues will be addressed first. Additionally, we’ll determine if any extractions are necessary to create space for your upcoming denture.
Depending on your unique tooth loss situation, we may recommend one of the following types of dentures to enhance both the function and aesthetic of your smile. During your initial consultation, we will thoroughly explore the advantages and disadvantages of each option, ensuring you have a thorough understanding. Additionally, a cost estimate will be outlined to assist you in making an informed decision.
True to its name, partial dentures replace only a portion of your teeth. Through the attachment of a clasp to your remaining natural teeth, the gum-colored base and custom prosthetic teeth seamlessly complete your smile. This ensures not only a fully functional, but also an aesthetically pleasing grin.
For those missing all of their teeth, full dentures are an excellent solution. Much like partials, full dentures have a subtle, gum-colored base and realistic prosthetic teeth. However, this comprehensive dental restoration is typically secured in place using natural suction, denture adhesive, or a combination of both.
Implant dentures combine the benefits of traditional dentures with cutting-edge dental implants. Instead of relying on clasps or natural suction for stability, your new smile is affixed to a titanium post surgically implanted directly into your jawbone. This method ensures maximum stability, preventing any undesired movement and providing you with a secure and durable solution.
Dentures are a popular tooth replacement option, and it’s easy to see why! They offer benefits such as:
Thinking about rebuilding your smile with dentures? You're likely aware of their popularity and their incredible ability to restore confidence in eating, speaking, and smiling. Of course, the only way to understand the expected cost of this solution is to schedule a consultation with our team. Before your appointment, take a moment to review the information below for insight into what you can expect when it comes to the cost of dentures in Midlothian.
We understand that cost can be a concern for many patients, but it's important to recognize that the price of dentures varies based on unique factors in each case. Our team takes several factors into account when providing a cost estimate. This includes the number of teeth requiring replacement, the type of denture needed (full or partial), the need for any preliminary treatments (such as gum disease treatment or bone grafting), and the choice of materials used in crafting the prosthetics.
Although opting for cheaper alternatives may seem tempting to save a few dollars, it's important to note that these materials may not have the longevity of higher-quality ones offered by our team. Choosing lower-quality options could result in more frequent replacements, ultimately leading to additional expenses over time.
While implant dentures may come with a higher price tag, you must consider the cost-effectiveness over the long run. Choosing a more permanent prosthetic like implant dentures can lead to big savings. This is because they securely fuse with the jawbone, offering longevity of 30+ years or even a lifetime. Plus, implant dentures provide maximum stability and bite force so that you can enjoy your favorite foods without concerns about slippage.
Yes! It’s very likely that your dental insurance plan will contribute to the cost of your dentures, covering up to 50%. However, the specific coverage can vary based on the company and its individual plans. Our team is here to assist in any way that we can and are more than willing to review your policy details and discuss the extent of your available coverage. This way, you can effectively plan for the financial aspects of your treatment.
No dental insurance? No problem! There's still an affordable way to get the smile of your dreams. With CareCredit financing, you can minimize upfront costs and distribute the expense of your dentures across several months, making it far more manageable.
