Depending on the type of partial your dentist recommends and the materials used, the average cost ranges from $1,400 to $1,800. Discover the different costs for each type below or learn more about partial dentures.
Average cost: $1,800
Metal partial dentures are the most expensive type of partial denture, costing around $1,800. Thanks to their metal and acrylic base, they are durable and place less pressure on your remaining teeth. Often they are fitted with a metal clasp which holds the dentures in place. However, they are often considered less aesthetic because of their color and visible clasps
Average cost: $1,400
Acrylic partials are another possibility for replacing missing teeth and are the most cost-effective choice, starting at $1,400. However, their design often has little or no tooth support , which can have a detrimental effect on the surrounding hard and soft gum tissue over time.
Average cost: $1,700
As a mid-range option, flexible denture implants start at $1,700 on average. They are normally made from a mix of acrylic and a small amount of metal, which is used to help clasp them in place inside your mouth. Plus, the grips are gum-colored which means they may be a better option cosmetically.
Average cost: $900
Temporary or ‘immediate’ dentures cost around $900, making them the most cost-efficient option. On the other hand, they are not a permanent or long-term solution. They are normally used in the interim while your mouth heals from surgery and your permanent dentures are being constructed.
