Although you can’t put a price on your health, it’s safe to say that high-quality medical care is worth its weight in gold. Dental implants are a long-term, advanced solution for missing teeth and therefore are more expensive than your average treatment — but exactly how much do dental implants cost?
Thanks to a constant evolution in technology and engineering, we live in a world where the quality of medical care is more advanced than ever. A dental implant is a perfect example of this, where a scientifically-engineered implant is anchored into the jawbone, with an artificial tooth placed on top.
Dental implants are the most effective long-term solution for missing teeth, which means you’ll avoid the shortcomings that come with dentures or bridges. Bespoke treatments of this nature require the expertise of a skilled surgeon in addition to high-quality materials — so it won’t (and shouldn’t) be a cheap treatment.
If you’re considering a dental implant but aren’t sure if you can afford it, this post will give you all of the information you need to make a decision.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
The titanium screw used in a dental implant requires incredibly precise engineering and actually having the implant fitted is a surgical procedure in itself. Because of this, dental implants are definitely one of the higher-end treatments you can get. But this type of treatment provides a permanent solution to missing teeth, and it’s for this reason that people are willing to pay more — rather than opting for a less permanent option, such as dentures.
A dental implant is made up of two separate pieces. A scientifically-engineered titanium screw is fused to the jaw bone, acting as an artificial root for the dental implant. On top of this screw, we fit a porcelain crown that aligns perfectly with the rest of your teeth and allows you to bite down and chew naturally. Although some clinics will charge a separate fee for the screw and crown, we quote a single price for the complete implant.
At Blue Light Dental Clinic, a dental implant comes at a cost of £1800, with an offer of 10% off when you have two or more implants. This is perfect if you’re missing multiple teeth and are desperate to fill the gaps, preferably all at the same time.
Dental Implant Costs Can Be Eased With Payment Options
When you consider how effective the treatment is as a long-term solution and that the materials used are of the utmost quality, it’s clear that dental implants are worth paying the price for. That being said, we understand that some may find it difficult to pay for their dental implants all at once. Because of this, we provide our customers with the option to spread the cost over several months.
You may be wary of these types of payment options, and for good reason — it’s often a tactic employed by businesses to make their customers pay more in the long run. But not us. At Blue Light Dental Clinic, we allow customers to spread the cost over 12 months at a 0% rate. We believe that you should be able to benefit from high-quality dental care without breaking the bank because a fantastic set of teeth isn’t much of a consolation when you’re struggling to pay the bills.
Here at Blue Light Dental Clinic, we can permanently restore your smile by replacing your missing teeth with our scientifically-engineered dental implants. Not only is our high-quality service worth every penny, but we also offer 0% finance if you’d prefer to spread the cost. Get in touch today to book a consultation!
