Dental treatment costs – Questions and Answers

How do you determine your dentist fees?

Our fees depend on the dental needs, materials involved and the type of the treatment. We follow Ontario Dental Association Fee guides which will keep our fees affordable and competitive.

At Bronte Road Family Dental, we offer a complimentary consultation with the dentist who will assess your situation, review different options and give an accurate fee according to your dental needs.

How much are dentist fees? and what can I do to make it more affordable?

Dental fees are set depending on many factors like material cost, labor wages, facility costs, permits and other regulatory fees. If a dental procedure is extensive or involves multiple appointments, the fee will reflect the time spent.

Prevention is the key to achieve affordable dental care. For example, lets say that the cost of recall exams including cleaning, polishing and fluoride is $200. If a cavity is noticed during early stage, the cost of the filling will generally be between $150-$280 depending on the surface, tooth and material. If the tooth is ignored or left undiagnosed to long time, the treatment cost will jump to $800 assuming that the tooth becomes infected and requires root canal therapy. Additional $800 may be required towards a dental cap. Again, if left untreated and infection resulted in loss of the tooth, the cost for an implant is $2500-$4500. As mentioned, early detection of the problem can result in less invasive dental work and more affordable care overall.

Do I need to pay if I have a dental insurance benefits?

We can contact the insurance company on your behalf to clarify your dental plan and work hand-to-hand with you to explain your benefits.
