Dental implants are not cheap. They’re also not available on the NHS here in Liverpool so you can’t get them for free. They are the most natural, long lasting and healthy method of replacing a tooth and like all good things, this doesn’t come cheap. If you’d like details of precisely where your money goes when you buy dental implants then you can check out our blog for more detailed implant costs information.
The cost of implants is spread out in different areas. There’s the cost of the actual titanium implant. This is made of a special material so that it can integrate with your bone and integrate firmly in your jaw. This process is called ‘osseointegration’ and you can read more about that here. The implants are etched with lasers and chemicals to make their surface great for nesting the cells that make bone. This provides you with a strong and stable implant that will last you a lifetime.
Then there’s the cost of the actual replacement tooth that goes onto the implant. This is called the crown and has to be made by our master ceramist in his (ours is a guy) laboratory. The crown is painstakingly fashioned from hard and durable materials. As well as being durable, the crown has to be lifelike and the ceramist paints on layers of translucent material to create the perfect look. This process is not cheap and the cost of the crown and implant make up about half of your implant cost.
The rest goes on paying your implantologist and running Smileworks. Smileworks Implant dentists have gone to university for 10 years a piece and spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on their education in order to create beautiful implant dentistry and keep you safe. Smileworks is brimming with technology. You’ll need special panoramic x-rays, precise diagnostic procedures and the process will involve microsurgical tools and techniques. This is expensive stuff and if you’re still worried about whether we’re spending your money well then implants probably aren’t for you.
Single tooth implants cost the most at about £1,800-£2,200 an implant This is because if you just want one implant then all the overheads, preparation, xrays and everything involved in placing it is used on only one implant. If you need bone grafting or a sinus lift then this will make the procedure closer to the top end of this estimate. Once you start having multiple implants then the cost is spread out and they work out slightly cheaper. You’ll get an itemised treatment plan from Smileworks and the cost of everything is on there so there’ll be no surprises.
All on four, smile in a day and multiple implant cases can cost anywhere from £8,000 to £50,000. We usually tell patients that big implant cases cost the same amount as a car. Then patients always ask ‘what sort of car’ and then they understand how it works. You can get a great little job done for a few thousand or you can go for the Rolls Royce option for £50,000. It’s totally up to you.
