Not everyone is born with perfect teeth. Thanks to wear and tear, stains, and life itself, even those who had beautiful teeth find that they can take quite an impact over the years. This can make it hard to fully smile without losing a ton of confidence.
Cosmetic dentistry has some state-of-the-art procedures available — especially on the Upper West Side in New York City.
So, how much does cosmetic dentistry cost?
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
There are many types of cosmetic dentistry, each with its own cost.
Teeth Whitening. Average cost $250.00 – $800.00 Having a bright white smile is something that many people desire. Stains can occur for many different reasons and can impact one’s willingness to smile. Professional sessions yield much greater results than those achieved through over-the-counter whitening options. This likely explains why teeth whitening is one of the most common – and most affordable – cosmetic dental procedures.
Porcelain Veneers. Average cost $2,000.00 to $4,000.00 per tooth. If you want the cream of the crop, look no further. Porcelain veneers cover your natural teeth, giving you a perfect smile. No chips, gaps, cracks, etc. will be seen. They are just as strong – if not stronger – than your regular teeth. They last for many years and are resistant to stains so they will always look great. Many people seek veneers and claim that the benefits far outweigh the costs.
Cosmetic Bonding. Average cost $300.00 – $400.00 per tooth Cosmetic bondings fills in or completely covers any imperfections, including chips, gaps, discoloration, and so forth. It is very similar to porcelain veneers and much more affordable – though cosmetic bonding doesn’t last as long.
Dental Crowns. Average cost $1,000.00 to $2,500.00 per tooth Dental crowns also cover chipped or otherwise imperfect teeth. These are considered a restorative procedure, however, as they are often used when teeth are badly damaged. The crown covers the tooth beautifully and is custom-designed to fully match the rest of your teeth. It functions the same, too.
Invisalign. Average cost $4,000.00 to $8,000.00 Having straight teeth is important for a beautiful smile. But those seeking treatment as an adult don’t necessarily want to consider traditional metal braces. Invisalign is a great option for obtaining straighter and healthier teeth.
Although we cannot give out an exact price on cosmetic dentistry procedures, we have provided a general idea of what each one may cost. Keep in mind that there are other things to consider when determining these costs.
The Cost of Cosmetic Dentistry
The cost of cosmetic dentistry is going to vary based on a few factors. For instance, there are many different types of procedures that fall under the heading of cosmetic dentistry. The cost of each can be very different.
Further, if you are combining different procedures or having more than one done at a time, the cost will change. If there is some restorative dentistry that needs to be taken care of, as well, you will incur additional charges. Exams, x-rays, and the like are also necessary for some dental procedures.
To get the best idea of the cost for your cosmetic dentistry, have your dental team create a treatment plan. This will give you a breakdown of the treatment as well as the cost. And, of course, you can always discuss alternatives if necessary.
