Experiencing life from having severely bad and stained teeth it is emotionally exhausting for many patients. Our great satisfaction in serving our wonderful patients with their journey of having great teeth for a new smile, especially when patient's tears of happiness are present, is difficult to put into words. Every new smile has a story to tell...
When we met our patients in real life we try to unearth their dental and life story and to tell our own as clinicians. The end goal is to find out if we can bring these patients back to good oral health and give them a great smile.
In this process of knowing each other during our one-hour consultation we tap into the underlying reason patients have severely bad and stained teeth and why they have decided to come to see us– to get to be the very best version of themselves; a version they have always had within them that got lost along the way.
Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry with Porcelain Crown
A porcelain crown, also called a cap, fits over and replaces the entire decayed or damaged tooth above the gum line, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Porcelain crowns keep a weak tooth from breaking or hold a cracked tooth together; they can be used cosmetically to cover misshapen or severely discolored teeth. Crowns can be made from metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin, or porcelain, and cost about $800 to $1200 each.
Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry with Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening can be one of the simplest and least expensive ways to improve your smile. Teeth can be bleached with in-office products in your dentist’s office for the cost of about $350, or you can buy a mold and gels from your dentist to bleach your teeth at home for about $250. There are also whitening products available over-the-counter at retail stores for convenient at-home whitening: whitening toothpaste, paint-on gels, rinses, strips, and trays. The cost of these products is about $3 - $50.
What causes the discoloration of a tooth? Tooth discoloration is a normal part of aging. As people age, enamel on the otth takes on a duller appearance. Teeth can also become discolored from smoking and diet including high consumption of coffee or tea.
Is there any side effect associated with teeth whitening? Dentists take protective measures to prevent discomfort during teeth whitening procedures. A whitening gel and rubber protective shield is used to prevent bleaching gel from touching gum tissue. The most common bleaching agents used by dentists are approved for use by the American Dental Association, ensuring safety and effectiveness. After the whitening procedure, you may experience minimal tooth sensitivity for few weeks.
Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry with Porcelain Veneers
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored porcelain that cover the front surface of the teeth. After removing about a half-millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface, these thin shells are bonded (cemented) to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Veneers are often called “Hollywood teeth." Living up to that name, this process can cost up to $900-$1,200 per tooth.
Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry with Tooth Color Bonding
In dental bonding, a tooth-colored resin material, which is a durable plastic material, is applied to the tooth and hardened with an ultraviolet or laser light, bonding the material to the tooth. Our cosmetic dentists then trim, shape, and polishes it. Bonding can repair decayed, chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth; it is also a good cosmetic alternative to or replacement for silver fillings. Bonding takes about 30 to 60 minutes, and costs $150 to $400, per tooth.
Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry with Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
Ceramics Inlays and Onlays are made from porcelain materials and fill decayed or damaged teeth. Dental fillings are molded into place during an office visit; however, inlays and onlays are created in a dental laboratory and bonded into place. The filling is called an “inlay” when the material is bonded within the center of a tooth; it is called an “onlay” when the filling includes one or more points of the tooth or covers the biting surface. Inlays and onlays preserve as much healthy tooth as possible and are an alternative to crowns. This cosmetic dentistry procedure costs about $650 to $900 per tooth.
Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry with Implants for a front tooth
Dental implants are titanium replacement tooth roots inserted into the bone socket of the missing tooth. As the jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, anchoring it securely in the jaw and providing a foundation for a replacement tooth. This procedure can cost anywhere from $1,700 to $1,800 and more.
Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry with a fixed Porcelain Bridge
A fixed bridge is made of crowns for the teeth on either side of a gap with false teeth in between. The bridge cost depends on the number of teeth to be replaced. The cost for a three-unit porcelain bridge starts at about $3,300.
Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry with Invisalign
Invisalign can straighten crooked or misaligned teeth and works by applying continuous pressure over a period of time to slowly move teeth in a specific direction.
Invisalign cost starts at about $3,600. Our average Invisalign cost is between $3,800 and $4,800. A simple Invisalign case (minor cases requiring a few months of treatment) costs about $3,600 or less, or $4,000-$4,800 to do a full Invisalign case in which all teeth are involved.
Does Insurance cover Cosmetic Dentistry
Many dental insurance carriers prefer focusing on oral health and preventive services rather than elective procedures. Since cosmetic dentistry's primary purpose is improving smiles, many insurance companies choose not to offer those benefits. Fortunately, there are a few insurances that cover a range of cosmetic procedures, including porcelain crowns and veneers. Those insurance coverage ranges from about $1,500 to 4,500. Our office takes all major dental insurance plans that cover cosmetic procedures.

All-on 4 cost is affordable and much lower when compared to a two-location approach, where both doctors from two locations would charge separate fees, significantly increasing the total cost of Teeth-in-a-day procedure.
Cost of one Dental Implant

A single implant typically costs $1,700-$1,800 but can be $2,000 or more if additional procedures like extraction, bone grafts, gum grafts or a sinus lift are needed. The average cost in is $1,800. Placing an abutment and a dental crown on a single dental implant adds an additional cost. The average cost is $3,400 for an single implant placement, provisional tooth, implant abutment, permanent crown and all follow-up visits.
