How Much Do Dental Procedures Cost A Definitive List of Dental Care Cost EstimatesWhen you budget for your dental care, it can sometimes be a challenge. Chances are, you’ve already done some research about the costs tied to a certain procedure you may need, but you may not have the correct information. Dental procedures can vary widely in price, especially if you don’t have dental insurance and are paying out-of-pocket. If you’ve ever wondered, “How much does a root canal cost?” Or, “How much does a dental crown cost?” Or even if you’re trying to figure out the price for many types of dental treatments, the following dental care cost estimates will help you budget for your next appointment at our Clintonville dental office.

Dental Procedures Cost List

The following dental cost ranges reflect the typical prices for procedures performed at Capstone Dental without insurance or discounts added. It’s important to note that the only way to give an accurate estimate is to come to our dental office for an exam. Some prices for procedures may also be higher if you need extensive dental work or are referred to a specialist for treatment. 

Routine Dental Care Costs

Dental Cleaning Cost

  • Dental Exam: $90-$150

Regular dental exams are essential and can help your dentist detect and treat problems such as gum disease, tooth decay, or oral cancer early. Dental exams may include x-rays, oral cancer screenings, and a dental exam performed by your dentist. 

  • Professional Teeth Cleaning: $75 – $1000 

Getting your teeth professionally cleaned every six months will help you keep your teeth and gums healthy. The cost for professional teeth cleanings at the dentist can vary as a basic cleaning can cost less than a full-mouth deep cleaning which may include periodontal therapy or gum disease treatment.  

  • Tooth Fillings: $125 – $275 per tooth 

Our dental team can help you go metal-free with tooth-colored fillings that ensure your teeth remain strong, healthy and intact for years to come. The cost for tooth fillings can vary slightly depending on the size of the filling and materials used. 

  • Dental Sealants: $20 – $40 per tooth 

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth to help prevent tooth decay. Both children and adults may benefit from sealants if they have deeper teeth grooves that require extra protection. 

  • Dental Bridges: Start at $3000 

You may require dental bridges if you are experiencing tooth loss. The cost for dental bridges can vary and depends on how many teeth are involved in your treatment plan. 

  • Root Canal Treatment: $600 – $900 

If tooth decay has reached your tooth’s pulp, then your dentist will recommend root canal treatment. The price for root canals can vary as the procedure can be more complex for severe cases.

  • Custom Mouth Guards: $400 – $500 

Your dentist may recommend a custom mouth guard for you to wear at night if you grind your teeth, clench your teeth, or have TMJ issues. Most dental insurances will cover the cost of one mouth guard in a lifetime. 

  • Dental Implants: $1000 – $2000 for implant only 

Dental implants are fixed in place and a permanent tooth replacement option. Fashioned from titanium, these artificial tooth roots are surgically inserted into your jawbone and then hold a replacement tooth, or dental crown. 

  • Dental Implants with Dental Crown/Abutment: $2500 – $4000 

The cost varies widely for dental implants and crowns/abutments as the price is dependent on the type of implant, graphing, and restorative materials used in your unique case. 

Single Visit Dental Procedure Costs

Dentures or Crowns Cost

  • Same-Day Dental Crowns, Inlays or Onlays: $1000 – $2500 

If you have a dental implant, a broken tooth, a severely decayed tooth, or other dental restoration options such as tooth fillings aren’t possible, your dentist may recommend a dental crown, inlay or onlay. These tooth restoration options may be on the higher end if a root canal or build ups are necessary.

  • Dentures: $1200 – $2000 per plate 

When you are missing all or several of your teeth, full or partial dentures may be a good option. The cost for dentures will be on the higher end if you opt for implant-supported dentures.

  • Tooth Extraction: $125 – $275 per tooth 

Sometimes, you may have a severely sick or injured tooth that may require your dentist to extract it. When this happens, you may also need a dental bridge or implant in addition to the extraction. 

Cosmetic Dentistry Costs

Dental Veneers Cost

  • Professional Teeth Whitening: $100 – $600 

Professional teeth whitening is a wonderful option for people who have yellowed teeth or teeth stains. The price of professional teeth whitening depends on the type of whitening you’d like. Take-home kits from your dentist typically cost less than whitening procedures done in the office.

  • Dental Botox Cost: $12 – $15 per unit 

Dental Botox can be a great TMJ treatment option for people who experience teeth grinding and facial or jaw pain. Your dentist can also administer Botox and dermal fillers to fill lines on your face and around your mouth. Typical dental Botox visits range anywhere from $200 to $600.

  • Clear Correct Cost: $3500 – $6000 

Clear Correct clear braces are a wonderful option for patients who want to straighten their teeth in an inconspicuous manner. Clear Correct treatment uses a series of custom-fitted aligner trays to straighten upper and lower teeth just like regular braces — but without metal brackets or wires. They are also removable so you can eat your favorite foods and clean your teeth easily. 

  • Dental Veneers Cost: $1200 – $1500 per tooth 

If your teeth are stained, discolored, broken or malformed, dental veneers can give you a complete smile makeover. While veneers typically aren’t covered by insurance, you may be able to qualify for a payment plan.
