How much do dentures cost in San Diego?

  • Quality of materials – The lower the dentures cost to make, the less you’ll pay at the front end. But you’ll also sacrifice comfort and appearance if cost is the only factor you consider. Higher quality dentures will cost more, be more comfortable, look better, and last longer.
  • The scope of treatment – The cost of your dentures will be higher or lower depending on whether just a few teeth need to be replaced, or you need a full set of dentures. If you need tooth extraction, this will also affect the total cost of getting dentures.
  • Denture type – There are a number of different kinds of dentures (see below), and what you pay will depend on the type of dentures you need. For example, if you need a partial set of dentures, you’ll pay less than if you need a full set. Or if you choose implant-supported dentures, you may pay more than you would for standard dentures.
  • Your insurance policy – Some insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost of dentures, which can help defray the amount you have to pay out of pocket. Not all plans will cover dentures, however, and even those that do may not cover all types of dentures.

Different type of Dentures

  • Full (complete) dentures replace an entire set of teeth, upper and lower. They are removable, made from acrylic or porcelain, and held together by an acrylic or metal base. Complete dentures are fully customized to fit your mouth and help you chew comfortably and smile with confidence.
  • Partial dentures replace a few missing teeth. Partial dentures can be removable or fixed to the adjacent teeth. Removable partial dentures consist of replacement teeth attached to an acrylic base and built onto a cast metal framework to hold them in place. Fixed partial dentures are held in place either by crowns on the adjacent teeth or implants.
  • Immediate dentures are designed to be worn for the six to eight weeks immediately after your teeth have been extracted, and before your traditional dentures are placed. They are only temporary and will not be as comfortable as the more permanent dentures, which will be customized and molded to your mouth.
  • Upper dentures replace the teeth in your upper jaw. Not everyone needs both sets replaced.
  • Lower dentures replace the teeth in your lower jaw. Not everyone needs both sets replaced.
  • Implant-supported dentures are held in place by way of titanium implants surgically inserted into the jaw. Also called “overdentures,” they latch into place or snap onto the implants for better stability. Unlike dental implants, however, the dentures are still removable and must be removed daily for cleaning. Implant-supported dentures can be partial or complete.
