How much does the smile of your dreams cost? If you want beautiful, sparkling teeth, the best way to achieve this is by seeking the expertise of a cosmetic dentist. Going to a cosmetic dentist can be very expensive but finding a reliable professional will reap many benefits and will be worth every penny. 


When visiting a cosmetic dentist, you will be choosing from a wide array of cosmetic dental procedures. Here are some of them:

  • Teeth Whitening


Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure for people who are looking for a simple and straightforward means of changing the look of their smile. 

Bleaching the teeth is a minor cosmetic procedure that only results in brightening of teeth. It is also for those who do not have much time and budget to invest in other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers. 

There are two types of teeth whitening solutions at cosmetic dentistry clinics- in-clinic and at-home teeth whitening kits. The cost of in-clinic teeth whitening is higher than at-home kits or over-the-counter bleaching products. 



  • Enamel Bonding 


For individuals who suffer from heavily stained teeth or chipped teeth, dental bonding should be worth your consideration. The composite bonding material is identical to that used for white dental fillings. A cosmetic dentist will mould it based on your preference or a shape that will suit you best. 

It is a great alternative to veneers as they are more affordable but deliver the same cosmetic effect. 



  • Veneers


Dental veneers are the first thing that comes into mind when we talk about cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are made from thin porcelain shells that are fitted at the anterior portion of the teeth. The original enamel is cleaned filed down to generate an impression of the teeth. The impression is then used to create customised dental veneers. 


How much are cosmetic dental procedures?

The cost of cosmetic dental procedures varies on a case-to-case basis. In Australia, the average cost of cosmetic dental procedures are as follows:

  • The price of porcelain veneers range between $800 and $1200 per tooth. 
  • The cost of enamel bonding can cost up to $600 per tooth. 
  • The in-clinic teeth whitening option costs $800 per visit. At-home teeth whitening kit prices vary on which clinic you purchased it from. On average, at-home teeth whitening kit costs between $80 and $200.
