Dental Costs

Dental Costs are one of the important aspects of dental care. Dental costs will vary depending on the type and extent of the treatment required.

Dentistry in Australia is typically billed out as a Code for Treatment with the outcome of the treatment often determined in the code.

Thus a filling that covers one surface of a tooth is a different outcome and code than a filling that covers 3 surfaces of a tooth. There is different codes for fillings. There is therefore different costs. You will need the dentist to advise the outcome and code for a filling before you can then determine the cost.

The type and extent of dental treatment will be discussed by your dentist during an examination and will form part of your treatment plan.

There are many ways to treat dental conditions. The former Ada President recently said “Ten different dentists will come up with 10 different ways to treat [Dental Conditions].” We recommend you seek your treatment from a dentist you trust and you be fully informed about your options.

Before you commence a dental treatment your dentist will give you information about the type and extent of dental treatment. This information should include:

  • what has happened
  • why this needs to be treated
  • what are the treatment options
  • what are the alternative options
  • what are the costs of each option
  • what is involved in each option
  • what are the risks and complications
  • what is the likely outcome of treatment
  • what will happen without treatment

Here is information about Dental Costs in Brisbane

Check-up and Clean

The Cost of a Checkup and Clean

  • Time spent
  • Experience and Specialty
  • Technology
  • Additional Services

In the last 5 years there has been an increase in different new technology used, along with corporate dental practices and lower rebates from health funds.

We find that in the general dental costs in Brisbane are

  • Routine Check-up, Clean,Fluoride ranging from $150 to $350
  • Bitewing X-rays (usually every 2 years) range from $60 to $120

One of the most important aspects of the difference in quality is the time spent for the check-up and clean appointment.

We see the range in time spent for the dental appointments in Brisbane ranges from 15 minutes to 60 minutes.  Brisbane Smiles allocates up to 60 minutes for regular check-up and clean appointments. For New Patients an hour with the Dentist and 50 minutes with the Dental Hygienist

Dental Hygienists are trained specifically to professionally clean your teeth and gums. They are an important consideration in choosing a dental practice for a check-up and clean. They take the time and give you specific advise to cleaning special difficult areas in your mouth.

Brisbane Smiles – Checkup and Clean Costs

Adult check-up and cleans are $280.

Children 6 to 15 years are $140.

Children 5 and under are free if visiting a the same time as a parent’s checkup and clean.

These prices include Check-up, Basic Clean, Fluoride

Veneers

The Cost of Veneers will be determined by these factors:

  • Material: Resin, Porcelain, Hybrid Resin-Porcelain
  • Computer Milled or Hand Crafted
  • Dental Laboratory
  • Dentist costs

In the last 5 years there has been an increase in different new materials used for Veneers, and this makes choosing veneers more difficult.

Hand Crafted Porcelain Veneers, made in an Australian premium dental laboratory will usually range from $1,700 to $2,500 per veneer.

Resin Veneers, made directly in the mouth, will usually range from $300 to $900 per veneer.

The different types of veneers above are each suitable in different situations. They have varying lifespans and your dentist will usually discuss this in detail before you make a decision.

Importantly, the different options have different aesthetic outcomes. We find that Hand Crafted Porcelain Veneers give the most aesthetic outcome with superior strength and lifespan.

Checkout some images from the veneer gallery. We are sure you will see the difference that hand-crafted Porcelain Veneers can offer.

Dental Implants

The Cost of Dental Implants for a patient is often due to a range of factors

  • Planning costs
  • Dental Implant type and brand
  • Bone structure
  • Surgery costs including Anaesthetic type
  • Temporary Tooth costs
  • Abutment costs
  • Crowns costs

In the last 5 years there has been an increase in different new materials used for the crowns on dental implants, and this makes choosing dental implants more difficult.

Around Brisbane you will find typical costs of a dental implant treatment

  • Total cost of $4,500 to $9,500
  • Includes implant surgery, abutment, crown.
  • Some additional costs may be hidden: grafting, temporary teeth, review, xrays, warranty

Planning Costs

Proper planning for dental implants often includes OPG and Cbct X-Rays along with teeth scans and computer planning with 3d printed surgical guides to reduce risks of surgery and ensure dental implants are placed into ideal positions.

Dental Implant type and brand

There are hundreds of Dental Implant types and brands and each have different costs. Using premium brands that have multiple options for the crown will ensure the implant is restore-able down the track should something need repair.

Crowns on the Dental Implants

Hand Crafted Porcelain Crowns, made in an Australian premium dental laboratory will usually range from $1,700 to $2,500 per crown and the abutment approximately $1,300.

Hybrid Porcelain-Resin Crowns, made on the same day, do not require a laboratory will usually range from $600 to $1,300 per veneer.

Temporary Crowns, made directly in the mouth, will usually range from $300 to $800 per temporary crown.

The different types of veneers above are each suitable in different situations. They have varying lifespans and your dentist will usually discuss this in detail before you make a decision.

Importantly, the different options have different aesthetic outcomes. We find that Hand Crafted Porcelain Crowns give the most aesthetic outcome with superior strength and lifespan.
