Q. How much is an extraction at the dentist?

A. There is no set cost for a tooth extraction at the dentist as it will depend on the tooth we are removing and how difficult it is to remove. You can expect to pay anywhere between $300 – $400 for a simple extraction. If it is a wisdom tooth or a tooth requiring surgical extraction, the cost could be between $400 and $1400 per tooth.

Q. Is it cheaper to get a tooth pulled or filled?
A. Even though it is easy to assume that pulling the tooth is a cost-effective solution, replacing it will cost a lot more time and money in the long run.
Q. What is cosmetic dentistry?
A. Where general dentistry focuses on treating and preventing overall oral diseases, cosmetic dentistry deals with the aesthetic appearance of teeth and is aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile.
