AFFORDABLE, QUALITY DENTAL CARE
Here at Tooth Fairy Dental in Bethlehem, Mt Maunganui and Te Puke, we understand dental treatment can be expensive especially if you haven’t been for a while. We strive to keep our dentist fees affordable and competitive without compromising on quality. Unlike many dental practices, we don’t charge a sterilisation fee. We also follow the ‘family test’ where we won’t propose any dental treatment we wouldn’t be happy to perform on our own family.
FEES FOR GENERAL DENTAL TREATMENT
The fees below are a general guide. When you attend one of our Tauranga or Te Puke dental clinics for an examination and x-ray, we will discuss all options and provide you with a detailed estimate with all treatment options.
We are also Southern Cross Easy Claim, NIB, WINZ, and ACC providers. We offer Q Card 18 months interest free. See below for more information.
Examination and two routine X-rays: $120
Intra-oral x-rays: $25-$45
Extra-oral full mouth x-ray (OPG): $99
Our thorough dental examinations screen for tooth decay, cracked teeth, gum disease and oral cancer. We will provide you with a written estimate for any recommended immediate or long term dental treatment. The cost of regular examination appointments is reduced, see our smile rewards.
TOOTH EXTRACTIONS / REMOVAL
$250.00 for a non-surgical single tooth (this includes a consult fee)
$390.00 – $550.00 for surgical tooth removals (includes a consult fee)
We perform an extra step of socket preservation on every tooth removed. If more than one tooth is extracted at the same appointment, rates for additional teeth are usually less depending on time required. Tooth extraction costs vary based on the difficulty of extraction. More difficult extractions such as wisdom teeth requiring surgery may be more expensive or may require referral to an oral surgeon.
$700.00 to $1425.00
The cost of root canals depends on the tooth and how many canals require treatment. Complex root canal treatments are referred to a local endodontist (their fee will vary). Fillings to repair the damaged tooth are a separate cost.
$99.00 to $250.00
Depending on case difficulty and time required $99 to $250 per appointment. The cost of regular hygiene appointments is reduced, see our smile rewards. Our dental hygienists are trained in the administration of local anaesthetic and have oraquix (topical numbing gel) available. These extras are complimentary.
Please note, to see an hygienist you need to have seen a dentist within 24 months. For more information click here.
$190.00 to $399.00
Depending on time required and materials used. Our high end tooth fillings utilise a modern technique of glass-fibre reinforcement to improve longevity. We base our costs on time. If you require multiple dental fillings in the same area of the mouth we can often reduce the cost of subsequent fillings if they are completed in the same appointment.
$450.00 to $1655.00
Crowns may be made from composite, hybrid composite ceramic, gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. Our lab dental crowns are made locally by a New Zealand dental technician with more than 20 years of experience. Our local technician enables us to achieve superior aesthetics and quality. Our Cerec machine manufactures high strength all-ceramic crowns using a digital scanner, 3D software, a milling machine and a chair side furnace for same day completion. We are one of a handful of practices in the Bay of Plenty who are able to offer this technology.
