Visiting the Dentist with No Insurance
Not everyone can afford dental insurance on their own, and some companies don't offer dental benefits. When budgets are tight and you have no insurance, it might be tempting to skip a visit to the dentist. We understand that patients have different priorities and situations, but we believe financial considerations shouldn't prevent you from obtaining the dental care you deserve. Whether you need a regular check-up or more advanced treatments, our cosmetic and restorative dentist Bruce Wilderman has the skills and compassion to provide high-quality care that you can afford.
How Much Will It Cost?
National averages for a dental check-up and routine cleaning range from $50 to $150, and X-rays are usually an additional cost. For an exact price quote, we invite you to contact our Philadelphia area dental office. The cost for fillings, dental crowns, and other restorative work varies per patient, depending on the extent of the treatment needed. Also, because insurance plans don't cover cosmetic dentistry, such as tooth whitening or porcelain veneers, we strive to keep those services reasonably priced as well.
What Are My Payment Options?
We accept credit cards and CareCredit®. CareCredit is similar to a credit card that offers flexible monthly payment options. The plan offers you the following benefits:
- No down payment
- 0% interest for up to 18 months
- Low monthly payments
- No prepayment penalty
Is Preventive Care Worth the Cost?
Even the best brushing and flossing habits are no match for professional cleanings, which thoroughly clean your teeth of plaque and bacteria and help prevent decay. With regular visits, we can also detect problems early, before they have a chance to cause serious damage. Cavities can be treated early with minor fillings; if a cavity is left untreated, however, the tooth can become incredibly painful and may need costly root canal therapy, crown, or even removal.
Regular check-ups also allow us to conduct an oral cancer screening, which is recommended once a year and is especially important for patients over the age of 40. During this screening, we will look for any suspicious sores or lumps in your mouth and neck area that could be early signs of cancer.
