Copy dentures are sets of new dentures that are based on your current dentures. The shape of the mouth is constantly changing and, during the span of time, the dentures may start to become slightly loose as a result of this. Dentures can also become worn and damaged after years of wear and tear. Copy dentures are designed to represent all the positive aspects of the existing set of dentures, but to also incorporate additional benefits that modern and more sophisticated techniques offer. Your dentist will be able to talk to you about new features or advances in denture technology and you can highlight the positive aspects of your existing dentures. You will then be able to get the best of both worlds with your new set of dentures.
How much do copy dentures cost?
The cost of copy dentures depends on different factors, including the materials used for the new dentures, the dentist you opt for and the clinic or practice you visit. Different clinics charge different rates for the same treatment and prices often reflect the location of the clinic and the expertise of the dentist. As the copy dentures are based on existing dentures, they may cost much less than the original dentures. Though, it is always a good idea to get a complete price breakdown before you decide to go ahead with treatment. If you have dental insurance, make sure your policy covers the treatment you are due to have.
