How Much Do Cosmetic Teeth Covers Cost?

 
 average costTemporary Teeth Covers: $25-$80 per Arch 
post E-mail post Post  

Cosmetic teeth are not a dental appliance, but rather a do-it-yourself, inexpensive and temporary alternative to dentist-prepared dentures or false teeth. Cosmetic teeth cover the front of the existing teeth (and any gaps between them); they are meant for appearances only, and must be removed when eating or when drinking hot liquids. Typically, cosmetic teeth only come in a few sizes, and must be softened in hot water to create an individual fit.

Typical costs:

  • Basic cosmetic teeth can cost $25-$80 an arch, which typically includes a small supply of the required fitting beads or adhesive. These cosmetic teeth are sometimes available in multiples (such as a two-pack or a six-pack), for a slightly lower cost per arch. For example, Imako Cosmetic Teeth[1] are available for the upper arch only and come in a bleached or natural color, and in a small or large size; they cost $30-$40 for a single arch or $190 for a six-pack[2] . Secure Smile Cosmetic Teeth[3] are available in both uppers and lowers, and cost $50 an arch (there can be additional charges for shipping and handling, but sometimes it is free); fitting beads are included, but optional dental adhesive costs $12.
  • For a better-fitting alternative, some dentists offer a customized Snap-On Smile for $1,000-$3,500 or more per arch.
What should be included:
  • Fitting cosmetic teeth is typically done by the wearer using hot water and a mirror, and takes about 10-15 minutes. Imako Cosmetic Teeth provides video instructions[4] for the fitting process.
Additional costs:
  • Cosmetic teeth are a temporary solution and are not durable; they may need replacing periodically, depending on how carefully they are handled.
  • If there are large gaps where multiple teeth are missing, additional fitting material ($3-$5 for a small supply) may be needed to fill in and strengthen those areas on the cosmetic teeth.
  • Some manufacturers claim that with a proper fit their cosmetic teeth will stay in place on their own, but users report better results when using a dental adhesive ($5-$15).
Discounts:
  • Novelty or costume cosmetic teeth start at about $10-$20 per arch (upper or lower); these teeth typically look relatively fake and do not come with the necessary fitting material or adhesive, which must be purchased separately for $3-$7.
Shopping for cosmetic teeth covers:
  • Cosmetic teeth are available directly from the manufacturer, such as Billy Bob Teeth[5] , Imako Cosmetic Teeth[6] or SecureSmile Teeth[7] ; or from online retailers like Amazon[8] .
