Hygiene (Dental Cleaning)

Scaling
$72.84 - $291.36 (depending on time)
The removal of tartar, plaque and calculus from your teeth, both above and below the gums. Done at every cleaning appointment with either hand instruments or an ultrasonic instrument. Scaling is charged based on time – every 15 minutes is one unit of scaling ($72.84). The frequency and amount of scaling varies depending on the health and condition of your gums, but most adults need 2-3 units of scaling, twice a year. However some patients may need to come in 3-4 times a year.

Composite Restorations (Fillings)

Composite Fillings – Baby Teeth
Varies
A white resin filling placed on baby teeth after the cavity is removed. The fee for fillings is dependant on the size of the filling and how many surfaces of the tooth it covers (the tooth is divided into five surfaces – top, front, back, left and right). The larger the cavity gets, the more complex the procedure becomes and the more time it will take.

Typically we will only do fillings up to three surfaces – beyond that we likely will elect for a stainless steel crown as it is more reliable and cost-effective. The most common fillings are:

  • 1-surface back tooth: $156.29
  • 2-surface back tooth: $197.55
  • 3-surface back tooth: $254.94
Composite Fillings – Adult Teeth
Varies
A white resin filling placed on a tooth after a cavity is removed or to fix chipped or damaged teeth. The fee for fillings is dependant on the size of the filling and how many surfaces of the tooth it covers (the tooth is divided into five surfaces – top, front, back, left and right) as well as the location of the tooth (front or back tooth. The larger the cavity gets, the more complex the procedure becomes and the more time it will take. The most common fillings are:
  • 4-surface front tooth (ie. chipped tooth): $266.23
  • 1-surface back tooth: $162.24
  • 2-surface back tooth: $228.72
  • 3-surface back tooth: $270.79

Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers

Core Buildup
$262.54
A filling material placed on the tooth prior to having a crown. If the underlying tooth has a bad filling or or a big cavity it needs to be rebuilt with a resin filling material before having a crown placed over. It is not always needed for every crown.
Zirconia Crown/Ceramic Crown (white tooth)
$895.20 + lab fee
A restoration that covers the entire tooth to either protect it from breaking down further or to improve its esthetics. Usually made from a zirconia material, which is very strong, or a ceramic material, which is more esthetic. A crown is recommended if you have had a large filling that is at risk of breaking, a previously root-canaled tooth, a broken tooth, or a tooth that may benefit from improved shape and color.
Gold Crown
$895.20 + lab fee

Bridge (white tooth)

  • Pontic (the fake tooth): $475.99 + $250 lab fee
  • Abutment (the “caps” on the adjacent teeth used to hold the bridge in place): $978.77 + $250 lab fee
