Cost of Dentures – Longview, TX
Invest in Your Smile’s Functionality and Appearance
Dentures in Longview are a tried and true method for replacing teeth, and most patients who have lost a significant portion for their smile are candidates for this treatment. However, some hold back because they are concerned about cost. When you understand why dentures cost as much as they do, and why they are worth the price, you will be able to commit to them with confidence. Our team is ready to help you find a way to fit dentures into your budget.
Types of Dentures
There is no fixed price for dentures because every patient is unique. There are several factors that can influence the total cost of the treatment:
- Preparatory dental work, such as extractions
- Whether you receive a full or partial denture
- Whether you receive an immediate or conventional denture
- The materials used to make the denture
When you visit Dr. Stoddard, your dentist in Longview, for your denture consultation, our team will provide you with a personalized estimate for the total cost of your treatment.
Are Dentures Worth the Investment?
Yes, dentures are worth the money! They can provide you with 5 – 7 years of confident, beautiful smiles and the ability to eat most foods. They are also comfortable and easy to care for. Contrast that with the consequences of not replacing your missing teeth. Without dentures, you may be embarrassed to smile in social situations, and you may be unable to eat the foods you enjoy most. A lack of teeth also makes you look older than you really are. If you have any natural teeth left, they might even begin to drift out of place and cause you to have a painfully misaligned bite.
How Can I Afford Dentures?
Most dental insurance plans provide coverage for dentures. In fact, depending on the details of your specific policy, it may cover between 50 and 75 percent of the cost of your treatment. Dr. Stoddard is in-network with a number of major dental insurance plans, which will help you keep even more money in your pocket. If he is out of your network, our team may still be able to help you take full advantage of your benefits.
“But what if I don’t have dental insurance?” you might ask. You may be eligible for low- or no-interest financing through CareCredit, which will allow you to break up the cost of your dentures into affordable monthly chunks.
