Full Mouth Reconstruction Costs Explained
How Much Does A Smile Makeover Cost?
Patients who suffer from different oral issues like a tooth, jaw bone, or gum issues, may be a candidate for a full mouth reconstruction. A full mouth reconstruction is a customized procedure plan that utilizes more than one procedure at a time to update the appearance and function of a patient's mouth. As a patient, a full mouth reconstruction may sound incredibly intimidating, not only from the vast procedures that will take place but also the cost that could be tied along with it.
The treatments that could be involved in a full mouth reconstruction can vary anywhere from dental implants, dental crowns, bridges, fillings, and much more. Each of these procedures has a range of different prices, depending on the severity of each procedure as well as the specific materials used. See below for a break down of each procedure.
- Dental Crowns: Crowns are used to restore the shape of a tooth. It can also be used as an additional seal after root canal therapy. Crowns can be made of ceramic, porcelain, metal or metal fused to porcelain. These crowns, depending on material can cost anywhere from $1,200 to $1,500 each.
- Dental Implants: Implants are recommended from dental professionals across the industry. It’s important to replace a missing tooth or replace an extracted tooth. This procedure allows the replacement tooth to have a titanium post drilled into the jawbone to provide strength and function. Implants can cost between $2,000-$4,000 each, depending on the materials used.
- Bridges: Dental bridges are used to fill in the gaps between teeth by using neighboring teeth as anchors. False teeth are added (like crowns) on top of the neighboring teeth while a full replacement tooth sits in the middle. Bridges can cost anywhere from $3,600 to $4,500.
- Fillings: Dental fillings don’t cost as much as other procedures, however, are among the most popular procedures. A dental filling is used to fill teeth once a cavity is removed. This is to protect the shell of the tooth, without needing to extract it because of an infection. Dental fillings usually run about a couple hundred dollars per tooth.
Budget Smart for your Full Mouth Reconstruction Costs
It’s incredibly important to have a sit-down consolation with your dental professional about dental costs. In the grand scheme of things, the appearance and function of your smile is the most important aspect. However, it is essential to not break your budget when undergoing these procedures. If you have dental insurance, your dentist could go through your coverage and see what exactly could be covered by your insurance and what you may need to pay out of pocket. Realistically, your dental professional will try and work with you to ensure you get the best possible procedures for the best possible price.
