There’s no set amount you can expect to pay for your new smile because the cost is determined by your individual treatment plan, such as how many teeth you’re replacing and the materials that are used. We work on your behalf with your insurance company to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. We accept a variety of payment options for any remaining balance, including third-party financing with CareCredit.
