The cost of dentures
The cost of dentures can vary and depends on a range of factors, including the type of denture, the clinic you choose, the dentistís level of experience and the materials used. Dentures are also available on the NHS in certain cases and treatment is much cheaper than private dental treatment. However, some types of dentures are not available on the NHS and private costs can be in the region of hundreds or even thousands of pounds.
What denture is suitable for me?
Different types of dentures may suit different people; some people will respond better to specific types of denture; and some people may prefer to go for the most modern, functional dentures. More expensive dentures tend to be lighter and more aesthetically pleasing, whilst cheaper dentures are often of a less attractive quality. The choices you and your dentist make regarding denture treatment will ultimately play a big part in the cost of treatment.
