Cosmetic Dentistry Costs
Visiting a cosmetic dentist can be the opportunity that you have been looking for to improve your smile. Whether it’s teeth whitening, veneers or dental crowns to improve a smile, it’s important to look at the costs involved. Often, dental insurance won’t cover anything cosmetic, which means that the expense is something that you will have to incur on your own.
If you are seeking dental implants, the price may be between $1,000 and $3,000 for a single implant crown according to regional averages. The number of teeth that need to be replaced can vary dramatically. There are also screw-retained crowns and snap-on bridges, showing that there are plenty of options that can impact the pricing.
While there are in-home kits that can improve the whiteness of your teeth by a shade or two, you can get more significant results by working with a cosmetic dentist. In-office teeth whitening will often end up being between $450 and $650 for a two to three-hour visit based on national averages. If costs are a concern, talk with the dentist to find out what your options are.
Invisalign is one of the most common forms of braces. They’re often more expensive but is worth it when you look at how it is able to correct the spacing of teeth. It is particularly popular with adults who never got braces when they were younger. According to the manufacturer, the fees range between $3500 and $8,000 depending on the number of teeth that need the coverage.
Crowns are often needed to cap a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and function. How much they are will vary based on the material used. Many can end up being between $800 and $3,000 per tooth.
Many people choose to opt for dental sedation when going through a cosmetic procedure. The level of sedation will vary based on the procedure, the modality chosen, as well as your medical history. According to regional averages, the sedation alone can vary from $50 to $245 for the use of nitrous oxide. For intravenous sedation, it can be $500 or more.
