Hello beautiful smiles!,
Would like to start off with given some examples of what is considered Cosmetic Dentistry. We have: Teeth whitening, Dental bonding, Dental crowning, Dental implants, Dental veneers, and sometimes Braces.
The cheapest thing on the list of course is the teeth whitening( up to $350 ), the highest is on the list would be the dental implants( $1,200 to $3,000) and dental veneers( $500 to $1,300) . Here is the prices of the remaining services that fall in between:
- Dental bonding ( $100 to $400)
- Dental crown( $500 to $900)
- Inlays and Onlays ( $650 to $1,200) Sorry forgot to list this one in the beginning!
A lot of these cosmetic services cost a pretty penny, but are worth it, these types of procedures last for years, with proper care of course. There is nothing more exciting than getting a makeover for that award winning smile! Also keep in mind that every location around the world has their own price settings, what Oklahoma may charge could be cheaper than what California may charge, Even different cities of that state will vary.
Some dentist offices may charge extra for anything that they had to do such as remove or fill in teeth before continuing with the main procedure. It has been known that some insurances will cover certain procedures, but that is very few and on a needy basis,( medically necessary ), they mostly cover preventive care. You should be able to have a consultation with a cosmetic dentist, to kind of go over the procedure itself and any other possible additional charges, especially if you are doing what they call a ” total smile makeover”, it is a combination of procedures. In some cases, financing is available for those who do not have the amount required. You may be able to do financing thru them or use a third party to fiance. CareCredit is one of the major ones that mostly all of them accept. Now days, there are more affordable cosmetic dentistries. Taking your time to shop around and do your research may save you money, especially if you are not able to qualify for financing. Some people even have work done where it could extend for a couple of months to a year, because it is easier for them to pay for it that way doing it little by little at a time, if they can.
You can also look at before and after pictures to get an idea of how the results could vary, or the potential goal that you had set out to be. Depending on what you have done, maintenance can vary from very high or hardly at all. Most people would think that a lot of these procedures are expensive, but I on the other hand, think it is an expense worth spending on. If you can buy a nice car and clothes, why not a have a nice smile! Give your self a chance to feel confident and more out going.
beautiful smiles of the world!
