As of February 2015, a moderate quality set of dentures costs about $1,000 to $3,000 for both the upper and lower plate, as reported by Cost Helper. More basic sets may cost only $1,000, while premium dentures may cost well over $4,000 for both upper and lower plates.
If a dental patient needs to replace only the upper teeth or only the bottom teeth, the cost for dentures is generally lower. If a patient needs to have teeth extracted before the dentures are fitted, this might add as much as another $650 per tooth to the total cost, especially if surgical extraction is required. According to Cost Helper, its readers report an average cost of just over $9,000 for a full set of dentures plus the cost of necessary tooth extractions.
