While cosmetic dentistry is an elective procedure, you’re going to want to know the costs before signing up to have something fixed. Whether you opt to do one cosmetic procedure or a couple of them, it’s important to know what the determining factors for the price may be, how much each treatment will cost, and whether your insurance will pay for cosmetic procedures.
Determining Factors for Price
There are quite a few ways that cosmetic dentistry costs can vary, and it’s best to discuss price with your dentists. We break down other reasons that price might change depending on specific situations.
Cost of cosmetic dentistry depends on a few factors:
- Fees of the cosmetic dentist
- Artistic and technical skill of the ceramist and the cosmetic dentist
- Location where treatment is performed
- Type of dental insurance you have
- Material used such as porcelain or composite resin
- The number of teeth being treated
Cost Estimates of 7 Cosmetic Procedures
Dental Bonding: Dental bonding uses resin to correct chips and cracks in teeth, and it ranges from $100 to $400 per tooth, depending on the specific needs.
Dental Recontouring: Dental Recontouring shapes and corrects crooked, overlapping, and extended tooth length, and it usually costs between $50 to $500 per tooth.
Dental Veneer Cost: There are two types of veneers that you can choose between—porcelain or composite resin. Composite veneers are roughly $250 to $1,500 per tooth, and they can last up to seven years. Their counterpart costs around $925 to $2,500 per tooth, but with porcelain, they will last up to 15 years.
Dental Implants Cost: Pricing on Dental Implants vary due to many different factors. The cost ranges from $3,000 to $4,500 for a single tooth, partial-mouth restoration is around $15,000 to $30,00, and can go all the way up to a full-mouth restoration at $60,000 or more.
Teeth Whitening Cost: Professional in-office teeth whitening can range from $400 to $650, while take-home kits can cost between $100 to $400, depending on the product and the results you’re searching to have. If you do not want something from a dentist, over-the-counter products can cost anywhere from $10 to $100.
Dental Bridge Cost: The cost of Dental Bridges depends on a few factors like material uses, preparation of the teeth, and any added procedures. They range from $700 to $1,500 per tooth. If you’re paying for more than one bridge, it could be $2,100 to $4,500.
Invisalign Cost: Traditional braces cost around $3,000 to $7,000, depending on the needs of the individual. Invisalign is around $3,000 to $5,000, so it's roughly the same cost-wise. Your dentist will be able to give you a more accurate cost of treatment based on specific needs.
Does Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?
Unfortunately, most insurance companies do not cover cosmetic dentistry because it’s an elective service. Although most don’t, some policies may cover parts of the procedures depending on what you choose. Dental treatments that are partially covered include functional and restorative dentistry, which may be items like crowns that repair the structure of a tooth, rather than something like teeth whitening. Chat with your insurance company to see if they will cover any of your cosmetic bills.
If your insurance doesn't cover cosmetic procedures, look at third-party options like Care Credit, Wells Fargo Health Advantage, and Lending Club. At Boger Dental, we offer all three of these extended payment plans for our patients.
