How Much Does Restorative Dentistry Cost in Mountlake Terrace, WA

If you got some not-so-welcome news at your last dental checkup and need further treatment, the first question that will likely come to your mind is “How much will it cost?” In today’s trying economic times, cost is always a consideration. To help our patients plan for these types of unexpected dental expenses, we’ve compiled a list of the average cost of the restorative dentistry services offered at our Mountlake Terrace dental practice.

What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry focused on preserving chewing function and oral health by repairing or replacing missing and/or damaged teeth. Anyone with cavities, tooth decay, damaged teeth, or missing teeth would likely benefit from restorative dentistry procedures.

Average Cost of Restorative Dentistry Procedures

The average cost of restorative dentistry procedures can range from inexpensive to quite pricey, depending on the complexity of the procedure and severity of the underlying dental problem. Another factor to consider is your dental insurance. Most insurance companies will have a co-pay portion that can be significantly less than the estimates below, meaning your out-of-pocket cost can sometimes be 50% lower. Here are pricing estimates for the restorative dental procedures we offer in Mountlake Terrace, Washington:

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are a natural-looking option to fill in teeth affected by cavities. You can expect to pay anywhere from $100 to $460 per tooth filled, depending on the complexity and severity of the space being filled.

Dental Inlays & Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays are a good option for patients with moderate tooth decay who need more than a filling but less than a full replacement. You can expect to pay between up to $1600 for a dental inlay or onlay.

Dental Crowns

When a tooth is too damaged for a filling, inlay, or onlay to be effective, a dental crown may be recommended. A dental crown is intended to protect any remaining natural tooth structure with a cap that is sculpted to mimic the patient’s natural teeth. Dental crowns range in price from around $1000 up to $2,000 per tooth. Your dental insurance will help lower your out of pocket expense for crowns- call us for more info!

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a good option for patients who have empty spaces where the natural teeth have been extracted. Artificial teeth to replace the missing teeth are anchored in place by two crowns on either end of the bridge device. A dental bridge will cost, on average, between $1000-$1500 per tooth.

Dental Implants

For patients who are missing a tooth and want a low-maintenance replacement option with a long lifespan, dental implants are a popular choice. Dental implants involve attaching a dental crown to a titanium post implanted into the jawbone. Call us to discuss your implant options!


Dentures are a tried-and-true solution for replacing all of the teeth, the top teeth, or the bottom teeth. Dentures are removable for easy cleaning and look much more natural than dentures of the past. Dentures range widely in price, from $1,500 up to $8,000 for a full set.

Tooth Extractions

Often the first step in other restorative dental work is extracting the offending teeth. A tooth extraction involves removing the entire tooth structure and root, leaving an empty socket behind. Tooth extractions are typically simple and cost, on average, $250-$300 per tooth, although surgical extractions can be as much as $450.
