Your oral health and quality of life are important and should be considered when you are looking at your options for dentures.
Unfortunately, economy dentures can be as unhealthy as they are unattractive, and getting dentures that are healthy, functional, and attractive can be expensive.
Implant dentures, in particular, are very expensive, but they are the best treatment option, and, for some people, the only option we can recommend in good conscience.
Why Quality Dentures Cost More
We promise our patients that we work hard to control the cost of our dentures, and the price we charge is a fair, reasonable one for the quality of product we deliver. When you buy quality dentures, you pay more because:
- We take more time designing and fitting your dentures
- Quality materials are used, giving you the most attractive and durable dentures
- Advanced manufacturing techniques are used to ensure a natural appearance
When you invest in quality dentures, you get numerous benefits in terms of your oral health, the comfort of your dentures, their functionality, and their durability.
We want to make sure everyone can afford the dentures they want, so we offer a number of convenient payment options:
- Direct payment with cash, check, or major credit card
- Direct payment along with filing a claim with your insurance company
- Extended payment plans
Once we have determined a treatment plan, we can talk to you about which of our payment options will work best for you.
Insurance Coverage of Dentures
Unfortunately, dentures are rarely covered by insurance. When dentures are covered, reimbursement rates are relatively low, and there may be restrictions on how often you can take advantage of the benefit.
Dental implants are generally not covered by insurance, either. Despite their numerous functional benefits, dental implants are considered cosmetic dentistry.
If you want to file for insurance coverage of your dentures, we can help you file your insurance claim so that you can take full advantage of what coverage your insurance offers.
Extended Payment Plans
In many cases, people prefer to save money rather than take out a loan to afford expenses, but when it comes to dentures, it is usually best to get treatment sooner rather than later. To make sure you can get the timely dental care you need, we work with the following financial partners that can help you cover the cost of dentures:
Lending Club differs from traditional financial institutions. Instead of being a bank that loans out money, it uses a sophisticated network to link borrowers and investors. This efficient system can lead to lower interest rates.
CareCredit is a special credit card dedicated to medical expenses, including dentures. However, the terms are generally more favorable than other credit cards. Not only can you avoid any payment up front, you can often get your financing interest free for six to 24 months, depending on your balance.
SpringLeaf is a personal loan provider, offering loans for amounts of up to $10,000. Interest rates may not be as favorable as the other options, but they offer no payment down and no payments for 6 weeks.
