Dental implants are an investment worth making, but let’s be clear: they are an investment. If you’re considering dental implants, you might wonder how you’ll pay for them. When you’re a patient at Champagne Smiles, we assist you with every step of the process—including helping you figure out how to afford dental implants. Here’s what you should know.
Why Are Dental Implants So Expensive?
Before we talk about how to afford dental implants, let’s address the elephant in the room: why are dental implants so much more than other restoration options?
Unlike bridges and dentures, which replace the visible portion of missing teeth, dental implants are the only solution available that addresses tooth loss below the gum line. This results in a stable restoration that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth, but in order to accomplish this, there are additional costs involved. With bridges and dentures, you’re paying for a restoration, but with dental implants, you’re paying for a surgical procedure, state-of-the-art biocompatible materials, multiple appointments, supplementary procedures, additional imaging, and one or more restorations.
Simply put, dental implants are more involved, so they cost more. Once they’re placed, your implants will last a lifetime, making them well-worth the price.
How Champagne Smiles Helps Patients Afford Dental Implants
We’re committed to providing all of our patients with a Champagne Smile, no matter their budget. How do we do it? By offering you several options to pay for dental implants.
When it comes to handling insurance companies, our financial coordinator is the best in the business. You’ll never have to worry about the hassles of dealing with insurance because she’ll take care of it for you. We can help you maximize the benefits offered by your dental insurance and determine if your health insurance may also cover some of the costs of your dental implants.
Some dental practices offer a single form of financing. At Champagne Smiles, we offer three. You can finance your dental implants through our relationships with CareCredit, LendingClub, and Wells Fargo, with credit approval. These financing programs remove barriers to receiving the care you need by breaking down the cost of your dental implants into affordable monthly payments with low interest. If you have your own credit card that you’d like to use, we accept those as well.
Champagne Smiles Dental Plan
If you don’t have dental insurance, consider our Champagne Smiles Dental Plan. For a low annual membership fee, you’ll get a 10 percent discount on your dental implants, in addition to a number of other benefits, including complimentary dental cleanings and examinations twice a year. A 10 percent discount on dental implants can represent a significant amount of savings, often even more than what dental insurance might cover.
FSA and HSA Funds
If you have a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA), you can also use these funds towards the cost of your dental implants and any related expenses.
