How Much Do 3 Common Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments Cost?

Thanks to state-of-the-art digital imaging and 3D technology, virtually any patient can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. Still, even with all of that being true, anxieties about costs act as barriers that keep patients from seeking the care they want and need.

Jean E. Barthman, DDS, provides cosmetic dental care to her patients at her Redwood City, CA practice. Whether you need realignment, professional whitening, crowns, or veneers, Dr. Barthman can meet your needs. She has over 20 years of experience in crafting radiant, gorgeous smiles. 

Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

The type of restorations and cosmetic treatments you need depends entirely on your specific concerns and goals. You might need some combination of the treatments below, even some that are not on this list. We commonly recommend:

  • Veneers: Around $700-$2,000 per tooth
  • Crowns: Cost can vary based on the material, but generally, about $500-$900 per tooth
  • Dental Bridges: Can cost anywhere from $500-$1,200 per tooth in the bridge

Remember that before any cosmetic procedures can be completed, you must have a care plan in place for any periodontal disease or other underlying conditions. At your initial consultation in Redwood City, CA, Dr. Barthman will talk to you in detail about any outstanding oral health issues. Be sure to factor in these costs when budgeting for your dental work. 

Veneers

Porcelain veneers are used entirely for cosmetic purposes, which is why insurance generally doesn’t cover them. Veneers act as a shell or covering for your real tooth. They are designed specifically for you, then secured to your teeth, enhancing the shape, color, spacing, or anything else that might be imperfect about your smile. They can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years with proper oral care and look just like your real teeth. 

Crowns

Crowns bolster weak or damaged teeth while giving them a natural appearance. There are a variety of crown materials available, but the most cost-effective option is porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFMs). These are strong enough to withstand the force of chewing but aesthetically pleasing enough to be used at the front of the mouth. PFM crowns are also the most commonly covered crowns by insurance plans. 

Dental Bridges 

A dental bridge is supported by crowns on either side of a missing tooth or teeth. They support the new, replacement tooth or teeth in the middle. Bridges effectively occupy the empty space so that your natural teeth will not shift to fill in the gap. Insurance often covers this procedure and we can check to see if there are any maximum limits or wait periods before you schedule treatment.

Enhancing the natural beauty of your smile can make all the difference in your confidence and your life moving forward. Most dental issues are caused by poor dental hygiene practices, accidents, childhood illness, and other situations that represent the past. Your future is the smile that you’ve always wanted.
