Removable or fixed dentures are used to replace missing teeth in people who no longer have teeth. They can also be used in people who have lost several teeth. In this case, it is called partial denture.
Tooth loss can result from gum disease, tooth decay, or traumatic injury. It is very important to replace missing teeth. Failure to do so can lead to changes in the remaining teeth, an inability to bite and chew properly, and a sagging facial appearance that makes you look older.
The beauty of removable or fixed dentures are designed to be comfortable and functional while looking a lot like natural teeth and can improve the smile or appearance of the face. However, prices are extremely high in Canada, USA or UK. Fortunately, we offer you advantageous solutions in Colombia for your dental prostheses.
The prices indicated for dental prosthesis correspond to a single « unit », that is to say a superior or inferior prosthesis. The cost of a set of prosthesis is generally twice the amount indicated.
It is also important to understand that the prices indicated relate to the prosthesis only. If another type of treatment is required (such as tooth extraction or jaw bone remodeling), additional fees will apply for these procedures.

What influences the price of dental prosthesis
The costs of the procedure depend on several factors, including:
- The location of the dentist
- If it is a removable or fixed prosthesis
- The complexity of the work
- The dental materials selected by the patient and the dentist. For example, prosthesis teeth made of highly crosslinked polymer are more aesthetic, but less effective than conventional plastic teeth and are more expensive. Different metals can be used in removable partial dentures, which can also increase costs
- The type of warranty offered. Some guarantees can last one to two years, others 10 years
What is a dental prosthesis?
Dental prosthesis is a removable or fixed denture that can replace one or more missing teeth and restore your smile and your ability to eat certain foods. In addition to making your task easier, prostheses help you speak clearly and, when several teeth are missing, they provide you with precious support for the muscles and structures of your face.
They are held in place by suction or dental adhesive in the case of a removable prosthesis and can be easily removed for cleaning. It is best to remove them overnight to allow the gum tissue to recover. Fixed prostheses are held in place with implants.
They consist of prosthetic teeth normally made of resistant plastic, but can also be of high quality porcelain or ceramic. The teeth are supported by a gum-colored acrylic base. Modern denture teeth can look like natural teeth and are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors. The gum-colored acrylic also comes in a number of different colors to create a more natural look. You can consult this useful site for more information concerning dental prostheses.
The benefits of dental veneers
- Improves appearance. Dentures can help increase self-image by replacing missing teeth or worn or decayed teeth, while providing adequate support for the cheeks and lips.
- Improves the ability to eat and speak. Well-made prosthesis can help improve speech and allow patients to comfortably eat a wider variety of foods.
- Affordable. Dentures tend to be the most affordable solution to replace missing teeth and treatment is the least invasive option.
Types of dental prosthesis
The costs invoiced by a dentist for manufacture dental prosthesis depend on the technique used during the construction of the prosthesis, whether it is « removable » or « fixed ».
- The immediate denture is placed as soon as the natural teeth are extracted so that there is no need to remain toothless during healing.
- The provisional dental prosthesis after an All-on-4 is a removable temporary denture placed after the placement of the implants for an All-on-4 and designed to improve aesthetics, stabilization and function for a limited time (usually 3 at 6 months), after which it must be replaced by a permanent or permanent denture (fixed or removable).
- The conventional dental prosthesis is manufactured several months after the extraction of natural teeth, once the tissues have healed.
- The removable full denture is useful for those who have lost all of their natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw, or both. It helps restore the correct dimensions of the face and allows you to eat and speak normally.
- The removable partial denture replaces one or more natural teeth and is ideal for those who do not wish to have dental implants or dental bridges.
- The fixed dental prosthesis on implant (All-On-4) can replace the upper and lower teeth, giving you a safe and natural option which is not only more comfortable, but also more practical than conventional prostheses.
