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. 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.
Examination and two routine X-rays: $115
Additional intra-oral x-ray: $30
Extra-oral full mouth x-ray (OPG): $90
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.
TOOTH EXTRACTIONS / REMOVAL
$250.00 for a single tooth
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 requiring surgery may be more expensive or may require referral to an oral surgeon.
$700.00 to $1200.00
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.
$149 to $250
Depending on case difficulty and time required $149 to $250 per appointment. 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.
TOOTH FILLINGS & SEALANTS
$75.00 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 $1455.00
Crowns may be made from composite, hybrid composite ceramic, gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. All our high-end gold, porcelain and porcelain fused to metal 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.
TOOTH WHITENING AND BLEACHING
SDI Pola day – is a take home teeth whitening system using custom made trays. The initial treatment provides 2 weeks of whitening. We find this method to be the longest lasting whitening option. We do offer a free whitening gel after your initial teeth whitening treatment if you have a hygiene treatment yearly to maintain your new white smile.
ACC REGISTERED FOR DENTAL INJURIES
Tooth Fairy Dental provide all ACC dental treatment for any age group. We are able to provide under 18’s with an ACC dental injury treatment without any private co-payment. For adults a portion of the treatment will require a private co-payment depending on ACC’s contribution.
WINZ AND COMMUNITY SERVICES CARD
We follow the government’s criteria of providing a Work & Income New Zealand (WINZ) quote before being able to provide any tooth removal using a Community Services Card (CSC).
A WINZ quote costs $75 which is refundable. Once WINZ approves the quote and all appointments are attended (cancellation notice of at least 24 hours) and the approved treatment has been completed, we will refund the $75 WINZ quote fee. If WINZ decline the quote then we are able to utilise your CSC.
