How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?

The price of your cosmetic dentistry treatment will depend on a number of factors, such as:

  • The amount of work and treatment required.

  • The clinic where the treatment is carried out – some clinics that have very high standards, a reputation for excellent cosmetic work and state-of-the-art technology will charge more.

  • The dentist carrying out the work and his/her level of experience and qualifications. There is a large variation in the fees charged between individual dentists: e.g., a dental crown can cost as little as £300 in some clinics and up to £2,000 per tooth in others. Specialists would generally tend to charge more than non-specialists in a particular field of cosmetic dentistry.

  • The materials used – the quality and costs of the dental materials used for your treatment will affect your overall treatment cost. For example, branded dental implants such as Bicon or Nobel Biocare are much more expensive than non-branded implants imported from other countries. Dental crowns that have a metal foundation are much cheaper than all porcelain crowns.

  • Aftercare and customer service – many clinics offer a guarantee with their work and the aftercare is in incorporated into the price, including follow-up appointments and maintenance.
