Cost of Dental Work

I have several teeth missing and the ones that are not are caps.

I have a front tooth decay that has to be removed and once removed I was told a 6? 7? bridge would be done.

I asked if they could cement this and I was told "yes".

The cost I can not afford and would like to know is a 6? 7? cemented bridge possible? and if so, how much do you charge?

My dentist has my moldings if this would be helpful, and I just noticed pictures or graphics are an option. I may forward some pictures in the near future? This may be difficult to do.. I'm not computer savvy.

Thank-you, and Take care

6 or 7 unit bridge
by: Nick Konev, owner of Mexican Dental Vacation

Hi Linda,

Yes, a 6 or 7 unit bridge is possible, and the stability of the bridge would be determined by how many bridge abutments or supports would be available to support the bridge, in other words, how many existing tooth roots are available to use as supports?

If you only have the 2 teeth available on either side of the bridge to use as supports, then the stability and success rate of the bridge would not be very good, and in our opinion, it would be better to have a bridge supported by implants.

Assuming that you have enough supporting tooth roots available, our cost for the 6-unit bridge would be $2400 and a 7-unit bridge would cost $2800.

An implant supported bridge would cost more, without looking at your case in detail, it is difficult to determine, but we would probably recommend 3 implants at $1000 each, and the same price for the 6 or 7 unit bridge.

I hope this gives you a good general idea of what options you have, and the costs associated with them, and if you have any more questions, feel free to email us at or give us a call toll-free at 1-800-959-2061.

Thanks Linda, and we look forward to hearing from you.
