Affordable Dental Costs for Stoney Creek & Hamilton

As a multi-disciplinary practice, we offer complete dental care in all facets of dentistry. We have a team of general dentists, dental hygienists, denturists and other specialists who take pride in their work and strive to meet and exceed their patients’ expectations.

Serving Stoney Creek, Hamilton and the surrounding areas with quality dentistry, Eastgate Dental Centre offers affordable dental costs for all of our services. For each patient we serve, the pricing for our various general and cosmetic treatments will vary greatly due to a number of factors.

  • Dental implants: Dental implants are small anchors or screws placed in the upper or lower jaw to support a tooth replacement prosthesis, either a single crown or bridge, or to add retention to an existing complete or partial denture. The cost for dental implant therapy will depend on several factors:
    • Is a bone graft required before or during implant placement? (Added cost is approximately $1500.)
    • Is a soft tissue graft required before or during implant placement? (Added cost is approximately $1000.)
    • What type of prosthesis will be placed over the implant? 
    • What brand of implant is being placed? (Fees from the manufacturer vary from $200 to $500.)
    • What materials must be ordered to take the final impression of the implant? (Unlike a regular crown/bridge, implants require small internal screws and impression components which cost approximately $100 per component.)
    • Is the implant being placed by a general dentist, oral surgeon, periodontist, or prosthodontist (All have different fees.)
    • Is the implant prosthesis being made by a general dentist or a prosthodontist? (Both have different fees.)
    The usual cost for a straightforward implant case requiring no bone/tissue graft, placed and restored by a general dentist, of a high-quality brand, replacing one single tooth (including the prosthesis in the cost) is $3500-$4000.
  • Teeth whitening: Teeth whitening kits range from $250 to $350. The reason this price is higher than over-the-counter whitening kits is that impressions of your teeth must be made by your dentist to make customized clear trays at a dental lab which fit over your teeth. The clear trays fit precisely to your teeth and are filled with the whitening gel, ensuring an even whitening across all surfaces of your teeth.
  • Orthodontics: We offer both traditional braces and Invisalign® treatments. The cost of a consult with our orthodontist is FREE! The consult consists of a conversation about your concerns with the position of your teeth, an exam of your teeth and how they relate to each other (their occlusion), and a quick outline of fees that would be required to meet your treatment needs. While the basic fees for each of these treatments may be similar, the costs will vary based on the extent of your teeth’s misalignment among other factors. Orthodontic treatments can be as simple as Invisalign for a few months, or as complicated as surgery/prosthetic work and several years of full fixed appliances, and each case is completely unique. Costs can vary from $1000 to $10000+. Often, if there are missing teeth, it may be necessary to replace them rather than shift other teeth into the missing tooth locations, thus adding cost and time to the treatment. Please speak to our front desk to book a free consult after your new patient exam to learn more about costs and treatment associated with orthodontics.
  • Dentures: Dentures is a broad term to describe any removable appliance which replaces missing teeth. Dentures can be complete (replacing all teeth in either the upper or lower jaw), or can be partial (replacing only a few teeth in the upper or lower jaw). It is important to note that dentures are not a “one-size fits all” dental service and require considerable time, technical expertise, knowledge of oral and functional anatomy, and laboratory/patient communication to ensure a quality product. A denture can be made by a denturist or a dentist, and often they work in close communication. Denturist and dentist fees can vary, and this section gives only a rough approximation of the average fees for both types of dentures.
    • Complete Dentures: A set of complete dentures (upper and lower) without any implants involved typically costs $2300-$3000. This cost varies depending on: if you would like them delivered on the same day as the extractions (higher cost), if there is a collapse of the bite requiring multiple appointments to establish a good vertical dimension for your face (higher cost), if the dentures require relines after delivery (higher cost), and if you have custom requests which you would like placed in the teeth of the denture (higher cost). Also, if you would like to have implants to support the denture, costs will be added for the implant placement as well as the components and procedures required to attach the implants to the denture.
    • Partial Dentures: Partial dentures come in two variations: cast metal framework with acrylic teeth, and acrylic framework with acrylic teeth. The cast metal framework is more expensive and costs between $1300 to $2000 for either upper or lower. The acrylic framework costs between $500 to $1000 for either upper or lower. The cast metal framework tends to be more durable, hygienic, better fitting, and easy to clean. The costs for partials depend on: the size and number of edentulous spaces, if there are posterior teeth that can be used to support the denture, and any custom adjustments or requests that may be required. If implants are to be incorporated into the partial denture, the costs would increase depending on the number of implants placed and the attachment method used for the denture.
