Restorative dentistry procedures can return your teeth to a fully functional state. In many cases, functional restoration also comes with added cosmetic benefits from replacing or repairing damaged teeth.
The cost of restorative dentistry in New York, NY, varies by procedure, with work like composite fillings costing only a few hundred dollars while dental implants could cost thousands. This blog will break down the approximate local price ranges before insurance for each type of restorative dental work we provide.
Tooth-colored composite fillings are a sturdy, attractive alternative to metal fillings that contain mercury. Dentists most commonly use these fillings in the front of the mouth and where they are visible when you smile.
The price range for a composite filling in New York is approximately $150 to $250 for one to two teeth.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are partial crowns. They cover the chewing surfaces of a tooth. When a tooth has incurred too much damage to support a filling, an inlay or onlay can restore it to its full function.
Inlays cost approximately $750-1,000 per tooth in New York City. Onlays are larger, costing a little more, around $1,000 to $1,500 per tooth.
Crowns cover teeth that have incurred severe damage due to trauma or decay. They also cover and protect teeth that have undergone root canal treatment. To place a crown, the dentist removes the damaged areas and shapes the tooth to form a support for the crown. The permanent crown restoration looks and feels very much like a natural tooth.
Porcelain dental crowns cost approximately $1,100 to $1,700 per tooth in New York, NY.
A dental bridge comprises up to four artificial teeth attached to crowns or implants on either side. Bridges preserve tooth spacing, restore chewing ability, and improve appearance.
In New York, NY, you can expect a dental bridge to cost between $1,500 and $5,000, depending on the number of artificial teeth included and whether the bridge requires crowns or implants.
Dental implants provide an excellent replacement for the crown and root of the tooth. You can expect to pay approximately $3,000 to $6,000 per tooth in New York, NY.
Traditional dentures can be useful for patients who have lost many natural teeth. The cost of dentures varies widely depending on the materials, quality, and whether they have full or partial arch coverage. Full-arch traditional dentures cost approximately $2,000 to $8,000.
