THE FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION COST
The full mouth reconstruction cost depends on the extent of treatment required, the procedures included, and the experience of your dentist. During your consultation at our Charlotte, NC, practice, Drs. John M. Pinnix and George A. Betancourt will take the time to evaluate your unique oral health needs and goals and design a treatment especially for you. Our team can then review your full mouth reconstruction plan and provide you with a cost estimate, so you can prepare accordingly. If you are concerned about the expenses involved, we accept Wells Fargo Health Advantage® and CareCredit® financing at Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney to make treatment more affordable.
Several factors can affect the cost of treatment, including the extent of dental damage and the type of procedures performed.
Elements Impacting Treatment Cost
Before treatment begins, we can conduct a thorough evaluation of your oral health and the structure of your smile. After reviewing your preferences, goals, and lifestyle, we can recommend the best treatment combinations for your needs. Much like smile makeovers, full mouth reconstructions are tailored to each patient. In turn, the cost will vary. Depending upon the case, treatment typically ranges from a few thousand to several thousand dollars.

The Type and Number of Procedures
A full mouth reconstruction can include an array of restorative dentistry treatments, such as dental fillings, dental crowns, dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures. The type of procedures and the number included will contribute to the overall cost. Patients who choose to restore their smile with dental implants and an implant-supported restoration can expect to pay more than someone who chooses a dental bridge to replace missing teeth.
While smile makeovers focus primarily on the aesthetics of your smile (meaning the cost of veneers, for example, is not covered by insurance), a full mouth reconstruction can significantly improve your oral health. Therefore, the severity of dental damage will affect the total cost of treatment but insurance coverage may apply.
Oftentimes, preliminary procedures, such as periodontal care, bone grafting, or sinus lift surgery are required to create a healthy foundation before we can perform other restorative procedures. Prerequisite treatment can impact the total cost.
Number of Visits
While some treatments can be completed in one office visit, others require multiple visits spread out of the course of several months. Costs can increase if more visits are required.
Dentist’s Experience and Training
A dentist with a high degree of training and more experience typically charges more than someone new to the dental industry. However, by selecting a qualified dentist, you can expect better results and a lower risk of complications. Both Dr. Pinnix and Dr. Betancourt are highly skilled in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, and continue to expand their knowledge by participating in continuing education courses. Dr. Betancourt is also a fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Our doctors take pride in providing you with advanced treatments and incorporate state-of-the-art equipment to do so. When you entrust your smile to our care, you can feel confident that you will receive the highest quality services.
At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, we offer several different types of sedation, including nitrous oxide, oral medication, and intravenous (IV) therapy to make treatment more comfortable. The type and amount of sedation administered will affect the overall cost of treatment. Although sedation adds to the cost, it can also reduce the number of appointments required to complete treatment. When patients are sedated, the doctor can often complete two or more treatments simultaneously, helping to lower treatment costs.
How to Manage Your Costs
While restorative dentistry is generally covered by insurance, it is not always fully covered, especially if you choose dental implants. If you are concerned about how to pay for your treatment, we accept CareCredit and Citi Health Card financing. Both allow patients to make manageable payments once each month over the course of time. As a result, patients can receive the care they need immediately.
