It would shock our many current and potential teeth restoration patients to find out how many people fail to restore their missing teeth every year. It turns out that many patients seem to be under the impression that if a missing tooth is not causing any pain or discomfort or cannot be seen, then there is no reason to spend the money it takes to restore missing teeth. And that brings us to the crux of the problem: many people are not restoring their missing teeth because of the costs associated with teeth restoration treatments.
It is very important to us here at Starbrite Dental that all of our patients have access to the treatments they need. For this reason, we are happy to accept a variety of payment types while also offering financing plans, which can help fit dental implants into any patient’s budget.
Before we can talk about our financing options, we must first talk about the costs associated with the dental implant process. The overall cost of treatment with dental implants varies greatly from patient to patient. This is because each patient has their own set of needs that must be individually addressed.
There are many factors that help determine the overall cost of treatment with dental implants. Some of these factors include:
On average, the cost of dental implants ranges between $1,500 and $5,000 per tooth. During your initial consultation, Dr. Munira Lokhandwala will examine your condition and then provide you with a written estimate of what you can expect to pay for your treatment.
The overall cost of dental teeth implants is based on several factors:

While some people might balk at the sight of the costs associated with implant treatment, the fact is that failing to restore your missing teeth with implants will end up costing you far more in the future. The reason for this is the fact that missing teeth can open your mouth to dangerous oral conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease. These conditions can compromise one or more of your teeth to the point where the only solution available will be to have those teeth removed. This means that you will now have to restore multiple missing teeth instead of just the original lost tooth.
Waiting to restore missing teeth can also give your oral structures time to degrade from conditions such as gum recession and jawbone deterioration. Should you experience these conditions. You will need a supplemental procedure before you will be able to restore your missing teeth should you change your mind about dental implants in the future. As you can see, restoring your missing teeth with implants early instead of ignoring them will end up costing you much less in the long run.
In order to make things easier on our patients, we accept a large variety of payment options, including cash, checks, credit, and debit cards.
We also work with a large variety of insurance providers to ensure that our patients get the care they need. We are happy to accept any and all PPO plans, even if we are not listed as a provider in that company’s list of dentists. We will also handle any insurance claims for you, as we will work directly with your insurance provider instead of requiring you do any of the work. Unfortunately, we do not accept any HMO plans at this time.
One additional form of payment we accept here at Starbrite Dental is CareCredit. CareCredit is a specialized credit card that was made to handle any costs associated with beauty and health treatments. What is great about CareCredit is, should you qualify for it, you can receive up to 12 months of interest-free financing. Thanks to CareCredit, many of our patients who would otherwise be barred from the implant treatment they need are now enjoying their new, restored smiles today.
