Full & Partial Dentures - Cary, NC
Filling the Gaps in Your Smile
When you live with tooth loss, you can no longer smile confidently due to the empty spaces while you also struggle with chewing many of your favorite foods. Over time, this can lead to nutritional deficiencies while you also develop difficulty speaking clearly. However, your dental health will also start to decline as any remaining natural teeth lose the support they need to stay in place. This increases your risk for tooth decay, gum disease, and additional tooth loss in the future. While you have probably considered dentures in the past, they tend to have a bad reputation for looking fake. Now, new advancements allow them to look more natural than ever before while restoring your quality of life and dental health. As your dentist in Cary, Dr. Darren Koch offers partial and complete dentures to give you a confident smile.
Benefit from a Convenient Approach to Dentures
Dentures remain one of the most popular solutions to replace missing teeth because they are affordable and convenient. In just a couple of appointments, you will have natural-looking prosthetic teeth to give you a complete smile.
Now, they look more like real teeth so no one will be able to tell that they are not your own. Using the most advanced dental technologies, you benefit from enhanced comfort and function by gaining a secure fit so you can chew and speak without having to worry about slipping or irritation.
Depending on your severity of tooth loss, partial or full dentures may be right for you. Your Cary dentist, Dr. Koch, will perform a consultation to discuss your options for a complete smile.
If you have several teeth missing in a row, you may be a candidate for partial dentures. Custom-made prosthetics are attached to a gum colored base that features a metal framework. This is then fitted over your remaining natural teeth to hold it in place. This will fill the empty space while also providing your teeth with the support they need to stay in place to protect your dental health.
When you are suffering from tooth loss, you will require full dentures. The prosthetic teeth are attached to a gum colored base, which is created using impressions of your mouth. This ensures the proper fit to enhance your comfort and the function of the prosthetics. A denture adhesive is then used to hold them in place to allow you to eat your favorite foods while also speaking and smiling without any concern.
Understanding the Cost of Dentures
Are you curious about the cost of dentures in Cary? You’re in the right place! We encourage you to contact our office to speak with one of our knowledgeable team members if you have any specific questions. Until then, we’ve included some important information about the factors that contribute to your denture price. No two cases are the same, which is why it’s difficult to provide a precise estimate. Read on to learn more about the price of your treatment and what you can expect!
Factors that Affect the Cost of Dentures
There are three main factors that influence the cost of your dentures:
- Preparation: We may recommend preliminary treatments like gum disease therapy or extractions. These services will add to the total price of your dentures.
- Base material: The gum-colored base on your denture can be made from different types of acrylics. The type of material used will impact the cost of your replacement. It’s important that these materials match the natural look of your gums.
- Prosthetic teeth: The prosthetic teeth attached to the base can be made from acrylic or porcelain. Porcelain is often more expensive, but it provides a more natural and realistic appearance. We are always transparent about the types of materials we use for our dentures.
Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?
Yes, implant dentures are typically more expensive, but this is for good reason. Unlike a traditional prosthetic, an implant denture is completely stable, strong and lifelike. Utilizing dental implants, an implant denture is firmly rooted in the jawbone, allowing it to look, feel, and function just like a natural smile. Plus, you can eat virtually whatever you want because your smile is so secure. You may even end up saving money in the long run because implant dentures require less replacements compared to traditional ones.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?
Dentures are considered a major procedure, which is why their cost is usually covered by around 50%. However, every plan is different, which is why it’s important to check with your provider before making any final decisions. We are always happy to communicate directly with your insurance to maximize any benefits available, lowering your out-of-pocket spending. Our friendly team is experienced in helping patients enjoy the full benefits of their insurance plan.
