Partial dentures Toronto dentist

How much do dentures cost?

The cost of your denture will largely depend on the type of denture it is. Here are some price ranges you can expect based on the Ontario Dental Association Fee Guide:

  • Complete denture: $475-1662 + Lab Fee
  • Partial Acrylic denture: $393-782 + Lab Fee
  • Cast Partial Denture: 1164-1585 + Lab Fee
  • Implant Supported Denture: 1357-1662 + Lab Fee

A number of factors will affect how much dentures cost to make, including:

  • Where you live
  • Upper or lower denture
  • Denture design
  • Denture material
  • Number of dental appointments required
  • Qualification of the dentist
  • Dental laboratory fees
  • Whether you have dental insurance

Where you live cost factor

Each geographical region uses a different fee guide.

Where you live will have an impact on the cost of dentures. This is because each region has its own rules that can make dentistry safer, but may be more costly to the patient. Most regions have dental associations that issue an annual suggested fee guide for dental services. For example, in Ontario, the Ontario Dental Association issues their suggested fee guide for practicing dentists. This Fee Guide is suggested, which means that dentists can go above or below the suggested fee. However, dentists will normally follow the recommended fee for basic services (examinations, x-rays, tooth removals) to ensure fair and competitive treatment prices.

At Atlas Dental, dentures are a basic service. Therefore, we keep with the suggested Ontario fee guide for dentures.

Upper or lower denture

Lower dentures are slightly more expensive than upper dentures.

This is because lower dentures are more difficult to make. The tongue makes denture fabrication more difficult. Moreover, there are looser tissue structures in the bottom jaw that makes it more challenging to fabricate a denture.

Denture design cost factor

The more complex the denture design, the more expensive it will be.

Depending on your specific denture needs, the design of your denture can get very complex. Therefore, it can get very expensive too. For example, partial dentures may require customized cast frameworks, metal clasps, rests, bars, and reinforcing metal mesh. Implant supported dentures come in many designs features, including metal bars, locators, and solid zirconia. The best person to tell you what features your denture needs is your dentist.

Denture material cost factor

The more premium the denture material, the more expensive it will be.

There are tons of denture materials to choose from and all our dentures are made to customized to meet your specific needs. Your dentist can instruct the dental lab to use more premium denture materials that will make your denture more durable, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. 

Number of dental appointments required

The more time it takes to make the denture, the more expensive it will be.

No two dentures are the same. More complex denture designs will require multiple appointments. Therefore, more time means more cost. The dental lab usually needs 1 week between appointments to make changes in time for the next appointment.

Here is a general idea of the number of appointments needed for the following types of dentures:

  • Complete acrylic dentures: 4-5 appointments
  • Partial acrylic dentures: 2-4 appointments
  • Partial cast dentures: 3-4 appointments
  • Implant overdentures: 4-5 appointments

Qualification of the dentist

A denture specialist (also known as a prosthodontist) will charge more than a general dentist.

Due to the additional schooling and training that prosthodontists go through to achieve their specialty status, treatment with them usually costs more. In Ontario, prosthodontists use a different fee guide than general dentists. Talk to your dentist to find out if a referral is necessary for your case.

Dental laboratory fees

Each dental lab charges their own fees for dental lab work.

Your dentist is responsible for taking chairside measurements of your denture, and for making any adjustments necessary to ensure a comfortable fit and beautiful appearance. The dental laboratory is responsible for the major changes in your denture and producing the final product. Each dental lab is independently owned and each has their specialties in the type of dental appliances they make. The cost that the dental lab charges for making your denture is the “Dental Laboratory Fee” (Lab Fee). This dental lab fee is a flow-through cost that your dentist passes along to you.

Whether you have dental insurance

Having dental insurance will help cover a part, if not all, of the cost of your treatment.

Dental examinations, x-rays, and tooth removals are basic services. Therefore, dental insurance will almost always cover them. However, a denture is a major service according to many dental insurance companies and may only get partial coverage. The amount of insurance coverage will vary from plan to plan, so find out from your insurance carrier how much you are eligible for before starting your denture treatment. Your dentist should be able to help you to send insurance pre-determinations.

We know that affordability matters! At Atlas Dental, we work with you to determine the best financial options for you. Ask us about dental insurance, health spending accounts and payment plan options!

Dentures Toronto FAQ's

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding gum tissues.

Teeth are an important part of our anatomy. They allow us to eat, speak and smile confidently. In an ideal world, our adult teeth last us a lifetime, but the reality is that teeth can be lost when there is damage and decay. Thankfully, you do not need to live with missing teeth. A denture is one of several ways of replacing missing teeth.

There are three main types of dentures:

Complete dentures (also known as conventional dentures or full dentures) are a full set of dentures that replace all the teeth in the upper or lower arch.

Partial dentures are for when some teeth are missing, while complete dentures are for when there are no teeth left. Partial dentures are either acrylic or cast. A Partial acrylic denture is largely made of a plastic-like material and may have some metal features including clasps, rests and metal mesh for added retention and strength. A Partial cast denture consists of a rigid metal base with overlying acrylic for added strength and durability. 

Implant-supported dentures are dentures are held in place by dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent titanium post that is anchored to the jawbone and can be used to anchor a dental-retained denture.

There are many benefits to choosing removable dentures:

  • Chew better. Dentures work like regular teeth, meaning they will allow you to enjoy solid foods once again.
  • Speak better. Many important speech sounds rely on the tongue pushing against our teeth, or our teeth coming together in near contact. Missing teeth makes it difficult to properly pronounce certain words. A good set of dentures allow you to speak confidently.
  • Improved confidence. The way your teeth look is closely tied with self-esteem and help you lead a happier and more fulfilling life.
  • Long-lasting. Dentures can last you five to ten years, maybe even longer, before they need to be replaced. This makes them a great investment in the health and appearance of our teeth.
  • Cost effectiveness. People will often choose a set of dentures over fixed bridges or dental implants because of financial reasons. Dentures provide you many of the benefits of implants without the added cost.
  • Cleanliness. Having the ability to take your denture in and out of your mouth means that you can maintain better oral hygiene. Food particles and bacteria are more difficult to remove under fixed bridges or implants.

Patients often ask for non-removable alternatives to dentures, including dental bridges and dental implants. At Atlas Dental, we can provide you with both options. Contact us for more information about alternatives to dentures.

You can expect some discomfort when getting a new denture. The gums may get sore and the teeth may be a little sensitive. If you are getting an immediate denture, certainly the gums and bone will be sore as the body heals after tooth removal. Dr David Nguy may prescribe you pain medication to help with pain. Several adjustment appointments may be necessary to ensure a comfortable fit of your new denture.

Whether you wear full or partial dentures, it is important to take them out during sleep. This gives the gums and other denture-bearing tissues a chance to rest, recover, and receive beneficial exposure to antibacterial elements in your saliva that protect against cavities.

Your dentures require special daily care. With a soft toothbrush, brush your dentures of any debris, and soak them in water or a mild denture-soaking solution overnight.

Getting new dentures, especially when you never had to wear one before, is a dramatic lifestyle change that can take some getting used to. Try these tips to help you adjust to your new denture:

  • Set realistic goals. Dentures require a period of adjustment so be prepared for some discomfort in the beginning.
  • Practice makes perfect. It will take a few tries in the front of the bathroom mirror to take your denture in and out comfortably. Your tongue and cheeks will have to grow accustomed to this new denture when you speak and eat.
  • Experiment with denture adhesives. Talk with Dr David Nguy at Atlas Dental about the best denture creams or adhesives currently available.
  • Several post-insertion visits with Dr David Nguy can be expected. Dentures are a process, not just a goal in themselves. You are more than welcome to visit your dentist to address any continuing concerns you have or any adjustments to your denture.
  • Follow your post-extraction instructions. If your dentist had to remove teeth or perform any minor surgery prior to you receive your denture, it is important to follow their instructions on how to have a comfortable recovery.
