These prices are dependent on the complexity of each individual treatment and materials used.
The first appointment will consist of pick-up impressions using alginate material with the existing denture for the addition.
From there the denture will either have the tooth added to the full denture or a pin will be welded onto the framework of the partial denture and tooth then inserted.
Second appointment the denture will be handed back with the addition of new teeth. Some final adjustments may be required for some patients to ensure proper occlusion is achieved.
