Cosmetic dentistry gives patients the ability to have a smile they have always dreamed of. With advancements in cosmetic dentistry, all patients can get the chance to improve how their smile appears. Cosmetic dentistry, like porcelain veneers, was once seen as an elective, but for many patients, it helps improve function and esthetics.
For patients interested in restoring and enhancing their smile through cosmetic dentistry, a simple question is often asked, “How much is cosmetic dentistry?”
Cosmetic dental procedure costs depend on the type of procedure chosen and the complexity of the work required for your smile. The actual financial cost of cosmetic dentistry will vary from cosmetic dentist to cosmetic dentist.
Below are some average costs for cosmetic dental procedures in Las Vegas:
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and typically least costly ways to make a significant smile improvement. In-office dentist-supervised whitening carries an average cost of approximately $700. While at home, dentist-supervised dental whitening will cost about $350 to $450.
Dental bonding is a great dental treatment to restore your natural teeth from tooth decay and trauma using tooth-colored resin filling material. These restorations cost more, are more esthetic, and are safer for your health than your traditional amalgam (metal) fillings.
Dental bonding costs around $200 to $450 per tooth. The wide price range will vary based on the location of the tooth and how much tooth needs to be restored and enhanced.
Dental Crowns Cost
There are three different kinds of dental crowns offered by Marielaina Perrone DDS. They are the following:
- All Gold Crown
- Porcelain Fused To Metal Crown (PFM)
- Metal-Free Crown Or All Porcelain Crown
Following a complete dental examination of the tooth that needs restoring, Dr. Perrone will recommend the crown best suited for that particular tooth. Each dental crown costs approximately $1,500 – $2,000. If additional dental treatment is needed, then the cost will rise.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-fabricated, and tooth-colored materials permanently bonded to the front surface of the patient’s teeth to improve esthetics. They are fabricated from porcelain.
Porcelain veneers resist stains and reflect light similar to your natural teeth. This type of dental veneers costs between $2,000-$3,000 per tooth. Porcelain veneers can last 10-15 years with proper care.
Dental implants are a safe and effective way to replace lost teeth. A dental implant is inserted directly into the bone and allowed to integrate. Once integrated, a new crown can be placed to restore your smile.
Implants have given cosmetic dentists a revolutionary tool to restore a patient’s smile, and they cost on average around $2,500 per implant. However, additional procedures like the need for a bone graft can increase the financial cost.
When you are missing or losing most of your smile All-on-4, Dental Implants Dentures becomes an option. A procedure that involves the precise and strategic placement of four specially designed titanium implants that will serve as anchors for a complete and permanent denture.
All-On-4 implants dental work can be complex and involved surgery. They often range from $25k-$35k per arch.
Invisalign is a modern take on orthodontic treatment using custom clear aligners. Custom clear aligners from Invisalign gives dentists the ability to straighten a misaligned smile and close gaps between teeth.
They are more expensive than traditional metal braces. Invisalign cost will vary between $3,500 and $8,000 depending on the complexity of the patient’s smile.
A full mouth reconstruction can be necessary due to many factors. These can include:
- Extensive Periodontal Disease
- Facial Trauma
- Dental Neglect
Considering that a full mouth reconstruction involves a dentist and possibly several oral specialists along with various dentistry procedures, a full mouth reconstruction can get very expensive.
A complex full mouth reconstruction cost could reach upwards of $40,000 or more.
Both a full mouth reconstruction and a smile makeover contain similar treatments, but the objective of each is very different. Full mouth reconstruction addresses form and function, and a smile makeover is focused mainly on cosmetics. However, each will also cross over into the others area.
Dental Insurance and Cosmetic Dentistry Costs
Typically, most insurance does not cover elective or cosmetic dentistry procedures. However, some insurance will choose to include elective dental procedures. Check with your insurance provider.
