Dentures--an expensive necessity for people who have lost their natural teeth through periodontal disease, injury or tooth decay-- allow you to eat and speak properly, while enhancing your overall appearance.

Background

An upper denture replaces all the teeth on the upper arch. Made of resin, porcelain, acrylic or metal, the quality, material and nature of each case dictate the cost.

Cost

According to Costhelper.com, basic upper dentures cost £195 to £325, a mid-range upper denture is £325 to £650 and a premium upper denture costs £650 to £2,600, as of January 2010.

Additional Costs

Dentures don't last a lifetime--they may chip or crack, and depending on the extent of damage, you may need a new set or repair work.

Insurance

The Consumer Guide to Dentistry suggests contacting your insurance company to determine if your coverage includes the partial or full cost of dentures.

Discount

A dental university clinic, located in many states (See Resources), can be an economical way to acquire dentures. Students under supervision, who may take longer than an experienced dentist, perform the dental work.
