Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Ranked From The Least Expensive To The Most

Cosmetic Dentistry has completely revolutionized the Orthodontic Practice by introducing meticulous procedures to help restore smiles all over the world. Cosmetic Dentists or as I like to call them smile concierges have helped innumerable amounts of clients restore smiles, achieve desirable chiseled features and enhance their facial and dental topography and appearance. 

However, the Cosmetic Dentistry and its procedures can range from a graceful price to highly expensive procedures, depending on the type of procedures you want or have been prescribed. 

If you have been experiencing the following set of Tooth related issues such as 

  • Staining 
  • Decolorization 
  • Worn, broken or chipped tooth 
  • Dental gaps 
  • Misaligned or deranged teeth 

Then you might have to undergo some procedures to have that smile restored. So if you have been wondering about how much itโ€™s going to take to restore that smile, then let’s get into the list of the least to most expensive cosmetic treatment options available, all the way from teeth whitening to dental implants.

Teeth Whitening

Staining and decolorization are some of the most common issues faced by a lot of people globally. Although there are a lot of Over the Shelf treatments available you might also want to consider a professional teeth whitening treatment performed by your dentist, well whatever the case this teeth Whitening is one of the least expensive procedures available under the umbrella of Cosmetic Dentistry. 

A professional Teeth Whitening treatment can cost up to $500 – $650. Although it is usually advised to consider a professional treatment you can also get some over the shelf help with bleaching gels, trays, toothpaste for just $3-$50.  

Dental Bonding:

If you have been experiencing chipped, decayed or cracked teeth then Dental bonding is the solution to your problems. Dental Bonding involves the use of a putty-like resin which is usually made out in a similar texture and color of your natural teeth. The process involves the use of this resin which is carefully applied on your teeth and then subjected to highly powered laser light. 

This is followed by trimming, shaping and polishing of the teeth. This procedure can cost up to $100-$500/ Tooth. 

Dental Crowns:

Dental Crowns are cap-like dental implants that are applied on top of cracked, decayed or damaged teeth not only to restore your smile but also to prevent the decay from spreading to your neighboring teeth. They are usually made up of porcelain, resin, ceramic, Gold and silver alloys or metal fused porcelain materials. A crown can cost up to $500- $900 each.

Dental Veneers:

Dental Veneers are Custom made, paper thin layers of tooth colored resins, porcelain or metal based alloys that are applied on the teeth after a thin layer of enamel has been removed off of them. They are also famously known as Hollywood teeth and cost as much as the name suggests. A dental Veneer can cost up to $500- $1500 / tooth. 

Inlays and Onlays:

Inlays and Onlays are also referred as indirect fillings which are usually made out of porcelain, gold or silver alloys or composite materials. They are widely used to fill damaged or decayed teeth. They are an interesting alternative to Dental crowns and are custom made in a Dental lab. 

The filling which is either made of composite materials or alloys is filled within teeth and this process is called inlays, however if you have them bonded over the center of the teeth then they are called Onlays. The treatment ranges from $650- $1200/ Tooth. 

Dental Implants:

Dental implants are used usually in case of a missing tooth or to provide extra strength to naturally existing teeth that have undergone severe decay. A Titanium based replacement is placed in the bone socket of the missing tooth. Once the Jawbone starts healing, muscles start growing around this titanium metal post and provide the much needed strength. Once the procedure is complete your teeth will restore to its original place and will be anchored securely to prevent any further damage or loss.

The process and treatment is highly costly and can range from a minimum of $1250- $3000. 

Although the above mentioned treatments range from slightly affordable to very costly procedures, it is always advised to research thoroughly before undergoing any of the above mentioned treatments. 

Taking extra good care of your teeth, by regularly cleaning them with floss and toothpaste, controlling drinking and smoking habits and having a nutritious diet can help prevent any decay or damage to your teeth. This will eventually save you from spending huge sums of money on restoration.
