WHY HAVE COSMETIC PREOCEDURES?
Within the first few moments of meeting someone, we make presumptions based on their appearance. Cosmetic procedures often improve self-esteem, as the patient feels more comfortable with the appearance of their smile.
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
Cosmetic dentistry involves, but is not limited to, procedures that improve the appearance of your smile both inside the mouth and outside the mouth. Internal procedures include veneers, crowns and implants, while external procedures include injectables and fillers.
The average cosmetic procedure will be performed over two or more appointments. The average duration of each appointment is approximately 60 minutes. Treatment times vary depending on the procedure selected by the patient..
The average cost associated with each procedure is:
Implant and crown: $5000
Veneers (upper front teeth): $8000
ASK YOUR INEEDA DENTIST
Does the quote include all x-rays and other required procedures that will incur additional charges? For example, there may be additional costs involved with a sinus lift when placing an implant in the upper jaw.
Can I view photos of previously completed cases? The dentist should not withhold previous cases. This will also provide a visual representation of their skill and indicate the level of quality you can expect from the dentist.
Please note that there may be risks associated with both general and local anaesthetic but complications are rare.
