Types of dentures and cost

Dentures are one of the most popular tooth replacement treatments.

Whether your tooth loss is down to genetics, a result of injury or an effect of periodontal (gum) disease, they’re a trusted and effective way to replace missing teeth.

By improving your speech and making eating more comfortable, dentures offer a chance for you to regain your smile confidence once and for all and also help to keep any remaining healthy teeth in place.

Dentures have come a long way, and there are many different types nowadays to suit all different types of lifestyles – but what are they?

In this article, our experts walk you through the different types of dentures and the cost to help you decide which treatment is best for you!


Fixed implant retained dentures

Fixed implant retained dentures provide much more comfort and stability than traditional removable dentures do.

During the procedure, we attach a hand-crafted denture – made in our onsite laboratory – to new or existing dental implants to better support the structure of your mouth and gums and your overall oral health.

You don’t have to worry about your dentures moving around whilst eating, chatting with colleagues or laughing with friends, and you can show off the most natural-looking smile with confidence.

Because they’re secured with dental implants, retained dentures tend to be on the more expensive side, and can cost anywhere between £4,000-£14,000 depending on how many implants you need.

Metal and acrylic dentures

Metal and acrylic dentures are two of the most hardwearing solutions for patients suffering from tooth loss.

Not only do they help restore a beautiful, fully functional smile, but they also last much longer than regular dentures and are much more comfortable to wear.

Acrylic dentures are much more budget-friendly, whilst metal dentures are pricier as they provide much more strength and stability and are much more time-consuming to make and fit.

The cost of acrylic dentures at our private dental clinic starts at just £950 per set (upper or lower ), and metal alternatives can cost up to £1,500.


Partial and full dentures

For patients considering a denture to replace a single missing tooth or a complete denture to replace one or both sets of teeth (upper and/or lower), partial and full dentures are more than ideal.

Both full and partial dentures can be made from a variety of materials and provide a stable replacement for the most natural-looking and stunning smile.

Prices vary between £1,350-£2,250 and depend on how many dentures you need. At Revitalise, you have the option to choose between 1-3, 4-8 and 9-14 partial dentures.

Removable dentures

Removable dentures are the next best thing in the circumstance of a fixed implant retained denture not being suitable.

They provide the same strength and stability as fixed implant retained dentures, only they can be clipped and unclipped comfortably and at your convenience.

Removable dentures tend to be Again, the cost varies depending on how many implants you need and whether you’re replacing one or both sets of teeth (upper and/or lower) and are a more affordable alternative to fixed implant retained dentures or traditional dental implants.

Client: Marion
Treatment: Complete mouth secured with implants

“The minute I met Martin, I just knew he was so calm and relaxing. So then we had a discussion and Martin said what he could do and it had to be what our pocket could afford as well and we went ahead with it. The experience I had at this dentist was unbelievable, it was a journey I loved every minute of.”

Client: Dee
Treatment: Dental Implants

“There’s always smiling, handshakes, hugs and plenty of tea and coffee. They looked after my husband who was there for the day. They do the sedation and Hayley looked after me. Obviously I was unaware of exactly what they were doing, but they always make you feel so comfortable. Although you’re nervous, I don’t think I could’ve gone and got the same treatment anywhere else.”
