Understanding Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry Pricing
The majority of initial inquiries we receive from prospective patients are related to pricing or total cost for specific procedures. If you’re researching for a dental pricing guide, you will find that most reputable cosmetic dental practices are unlikely to provide pricing online or discuss pricing over the phone on any procedure involving implants. Accurate pricing for most cosmetic dental procedures, especially those involving implants, is usually impossible to provide without a proper examination and diagnosis. There are many patient specific factors that can impact the total cost.
Generally speaking, the most common cost affecting factors include:
- A patient’s overall oral health
- Gum disease or infection
- Number of extractions or implants required
- Bone or jaw erosion – bone graft may be required
- Cap and crown
- The Doctor(s) performing the procedure
- Onsite vs. offsite lab
- Materials used
*TIP – If you’re researching pricing information for procedures involving implants (All-on-4 or Teeth in a day, Smile Makeover, etc.) and you see an unusually low advertised special or promotional price, always be sure to read the fine print. If you see an ad from a dental practice offering a low promotional price, be sure to look for additional details outlined with the associated promotion. If you do not see clear details present in the ad, you should expect to be presented with additional charges/fees before or after your consultation. Uptown Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry along with most reputable cosmetic dental practices will not advertise special pricing without clearly outlining important cost-related details.
