Dentures Costs and Financing: What Patients Should Know
Dr. Joseph Perry has provided custom dentures that look natural and fit comfortably to countless patients in and around San Antonio. The results he's achieved are astounding, and his patients achieve a high level of satisfaction thanks to this high-quality work.
Great dentistry does have a price tag, but thankfully it's not unaffordable. We'd like to go over some basic concerns when it comes to the cost of dentures and how patients can pay for them. As you're about to read, there's a good amount of flexibility for people who want to have a great smile again.
The Average Cost of Dentures
The average cost of a set of dentures can vary based on a number of factors. Because of this, we don't feel that providing a price range accurately conveys the pricing process or the work that goes into crafting a custom set of dentures.
With that in mind, we'd be more than happy to go over these concerns with you in more detail during a visit to our practice. During the consultation process, we'll assess your situation and provide a price quote for your treatment needs. We'll also be able to break down the various cost associated with treatment for you.
Factors that Determine the Cost of Your Dentures
Some of the factors that determine the cost of denture treatment include the following:
- The location of the dental practice and the dentists who work there
- The type of denture that the patient will require (partial or full)
- The potential use of dental implants to fix the denture in place
- Additional treatments required prior to fitting and crafting the denture
- The overall complexity of the patient's case
Will my insurance cover the cost of my dentures?
Yes. In many cases, insurance will help pay for the cost of your dentures. Since policies and the amount of coverage varies from company to company and policy to policy, be sure to speak with your insurance provider directly to learn more.
Are dentures an eligible procedure with my flex spending account (FSA)?
Yes. FSAs offer up to $2,500 annual reimbursement for approved medical and dental treatments, and dentures are eligible expenses. It's important that you get in touch with your FSA provider directly to find out what documentation and paperwork is required to ensure a speedy and problem-free reimbursement.
Monthly Financing Options for Dental Care Treatments
Another payment option to consider for dentures is monthly payment options. These financing plans work much like a credit card or a traditional loan, with a trusted lending institution covering the cost of the denture treatment and patients paying back the lender on a monthly basis. A reasonable interest rate will apply to the total cost of care.
Helping You Make the Right Decisions for Care
In addition to going over the estimated cost of your denture treatment, we will be more than happy to discuss your different options for payment and how different methods can be combined for the greatest convenience to you. In addition to helping you have a beautiful and healthy smile, we also want to make sure that every choice you make regarding payment is one with which you are confident.
