Cosmetic Dentist

Welcome to our in-depth guide on Restorative Dentistry at Jaline Boccuzzi, DMD, AAACD, PA / JBDentistry! Our mission is to provide comprehensive information about restorative dental services. We understand that dental procedures can seem daunting, so we aim to make this guide informative and easy to understand. Let’s explore our various options to help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.

Dental Implants

Implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, fusing with the bone and acting as anchors for replacement teeth. Dental implants are a durable, long-lasting option and can significantly improve your teeth’ function and appearance.


  • Durability: Implants are surprisingly durable and can last many years, often a lifetime, with proper care.
  • Functionality: They function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without hesitation.
  • Aesthetics: Implants look and feel like natural teeth, enhancing your smile and confidence.

Cost Considerations:

The cost can vary based on factors such as the number of implants required, the type of implant and restoration (e.g., crown, bridge, denture), and the procedure’s complexity. Here’s a general breakdown of potential costs:

  1. Single Dental Implant: The cost for a single dental implant can range from $1,500 to $6,000. This price typically includes the implant post, abutment, and crown.
  2. Multiple Dental Implants: The cost will increase accordingly for various teeth replacements. However, it may be a complex multiplication of the single implant cost, as some cost efficiencies can occur.
  3. Full Arch Replacement: The cost can range from $15,000 to $30,000 or more per arch for full arch replacements, such as implant-supported dentures or bridges.
  4. Additional Procedures: Additional procedures, from the likes of bone grafting or sinus lifts required for some patients to ensure a successful implant, can add to the overall cost.

Despite the upfront cost, it’s important to consider the long-term benefits of dental implants. Unlike other tooth replacement treatments, implants can last a lifetime with proper care, potentially saving you money in the long run. They also offer unparalleled comfort and functionality, greatly enhancing your quality of life.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a cap placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are used for various reasons, including protecting a weak tooth, restoring a broken tooth, covering a dental implant, or improving a tooth’s appearance.


  • Porcelain: Popular for their natural appearance.
  • Gold and Metal Alloys: Known for their strength, especially for back teeth.
  • Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM): Offers both strength and a natural look.

Cost Considerations:

The cost of dental crowns varies depending on the material used, the complexity of the procedure, and geographical location. Here’s a general idea of what you might expect to spend:

  1. Porcelain Crowns: These can range from $800 to $3,000 per crown. The higher cost is due to the material’s aesthetic appeal and the intricate process involved in matching the crown to the natural color of your teeth.
  2. Gold and Metal Alloy Crowns: The price for gold and metal alloy crowns can vary widely, typically ranging from $600 to $2,500 per crown. The cost depends on the market price of the metal and the complexity of the crown’s design.
  3. Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) Crowns: PFM crowns generally range from $700 to $2,000 per crown. The cost reflects a combination of the benefits of metal and porcelain, offering both durability and a pleasing aesthetic.
  4. Additional Costs: In some cases, procedures such as dental X-rays, tooth preparation, or a dental exam may be necessary, adding to the overall cost.

At JBDentistry, we understand that the cost of dental crowns can be a significant investment. We are aim to provide transparent pricing and high-quality materials to ensure the best value for your dental care. Our team works with various insurance providers and offers flexible payment plans to help manage the costs of your treatment.

Dental Onlays & Inlays

Onlays and inlays are indirect restorations that repair teeth with mild to moderate decay or damage. They are custom-made in a lab and then bonded to the tooth.

Key Points:

  • Inlays: Fit within the cusps of a tooth.
  • Onlays: Cover one or more cusps or the entire biting surface of a tooth.
  • Material Choices: Often made from porcelain, gold, or composite resin.

Cost Considerations:

The cost of dental onlays and inlays can vary depending on the material used, the restoration’s size and location, and the procedure’s complexity. Here’s an overview of what you might expect to spend:

  1. Porcelain Onlays & Inlays: Porcelain restorations are popular for their natural appearance and durability. The cost for porcelain onlays and inlays typically ranges from $650 to $1,200 per tooth.
  2. Gold Onlays & Inlays: Gold is known for its strength and longevity. Gold onlays and inlays can cost anywhere from $600 to $2,500 per tooth, depending on the current market price of gold and the complexity of the restoration.
  3. Composite Resin Onlays & Inlays: Composite resin is more affordable and can be color-matched to natural teeth. The composite resin onlays and inlays usually range from $350 to $800 per tooth.
  4. Additional Costs: Additional costs may include the initial dental consultation, necessary x-rays, and potential preparatory work on the tooth or teeth requiring the onlay or inlay.

Remember, investing in quality dental restorations like onlays and inlays improves the appearance of your smile and helps maintain the health and structure of your natural teeth. We are dedicated to restoring your smile’s beauty and functionality with our comprehensive dental care services.


We offer various types of dentures at JBDentistry to suit your specific needs.


  • Full Dentures: Utilized when replacing all teeth in the upper or even the lower jaw.
  • Partial Dentures: When some natural teeth remain, this is the perfect implant.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: Provide more stability by attaching to dental implants.
  • Temporary Dentures: Used as a quick solution while waiting for permanent dentures or implants.

Cost Considerations:

The cost of dentures varies depending on the type you need, the materials used, and the complexity of your case. Here’s a general idea of what you might expect to spend:

  1. Full Dentures: A complete set of upper and lower full dentures can range from $1,000 to $3,000. The price depends on the quality of the materials and the customization required to achieve a natural look and comfortable fit.
  2. Partial Dentures: Partial dentures typically cost between $500 and $2,500. The price can vary based on the number of teeth being replaced and the type of material used.
  3. Implant-Supported Dentures: These are generally more expensive due to the surgical implant placement procedure. The total cost can range from $1,500 to $4,000 per implant, with the overall price depending on the number of implants and the type of denture.
  4. Temporary Dentures: Temporary or “immediate” dentures typically cost between $300 and $800. They are less expensive as they are designed to be a quick solution.

When considering dentures, it’s important to look at the cost and the long-term benefits they offer. High-quality dentures can significantly improve your ability to eat and speak comfortably and enhance your overall appearance and self-confidence.

Our goal at JBDentistry is to provide you with dentures that fit your budget and offer the best possible functionality and aesthetics. We use the latest technology and materials to create natural and comfortable dentures, ensuring you receive the highest quality care and the best value for your investment.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge consists of multiple crowns for the adjacent teeth and a false tooth/teeth in the middle, serving to fill the gap.


  • Aesthetic Improvement: Enhances the appearance of your smile.
  • Functional Benefits: Restores the ability to chew and speak properly.
  • Prevents Shifting: Keeps remaining teeth from shifting out of position.

Cost Considerations:

The cost of dental bridges can vary depending on the type of bridge, the materials used, the number of teeth involved, and the complexity of the placement. Here’s a general guide to the potential costs:

  1. Traditional Fixed Bridges: This typically ranges from $500 to $1,500 per tooth. Therefore, for a standard three-unit bridge (two crowns and one false tooth), the total cost can range from $1,500 to $4,500.
  2. Cantilever Bridges: Similar in cost to traditional bridges, cantilever bridges may be used when adjacent teeth are on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth. The cost generally falls within the same range as traditional bridges.
  3. Maryland Bridges: These bridges often use porcelain or metal frameworks and are less invasive. They can cost between $1,000 and $2,500 for the bridge.
  4. Materials: The cost can also vary depending on the materials used, such as porcelain, ceramic, gold, or a combination. Porcelain and ceramic bridges offer a more natural appearance and can be on the higher end of the price spectrum.
  5. Additional Costs: Additional costs may include preparatory work like fillings or root canals on the adjacent teeth and dental X-rays and scans.

Investing in a dental bridge is a significant decision that goes beyond cosmetic considerations, as it holds crucial implications for oral health. A properly constructed bridge can effectively prevent tooth movement, preserve facial contour, and reduce bite stress. At JBDentistry, our team is committed to creating bridges that are durable and aesthetically pleasing, providing you with optimal care and value for your investment.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive dental procedure that entails the restoration or replacement of all teeth within a patient’s oral cavity. It integrates the principles of aesthetics and restorative dentistry to enhance oral health, functionality, and aesthetics.

What It Involves:

  • Comprehensive Assessment: A thorough examination to determine the extent of the problem.
  • Customized Treatment Plan: This may include a combination of dental implants, crowns, bridges, veneers, and/or dentures.
  • Aim: To restore not just the appearance of your teeth but also their structure and function.

Cost Considerations:

The cost of full mouth reconstruction can vary greatly depending on the individualized treatment required for each patient. Here are some factors that can affect the total price:

  1. Extent of Treatment: The more extensive the reconstruction involving multiple procedures like implants, crowns, bridges, and veneers, the higher the cost. The treatment can range from basic restorative procedures to complex surgeries.
  2. Dental Implants: The cost can increase significantly if dental implants are included in the treatment plan. Each implant can cost between $1,500 to $6,000, and a full mouth reconstruction may require multiple implants.
  3. Crowns and Bridges: The cost for crowns and bridges varies depending on the materials used and the number required. Crowns can range from $800 to $3,000 per tooth, and bridges can range from $1,500 to $4,500 for a standard three-unit bridge.
  4. Veneers: Porcelain veneers, often used for aesthetic improvements in full mouth reconstructions, can cost between $900 and $2,500 per tooth.
  5. Dentures: If dentures are a part of the reconstruction plan, they can add to the cost, ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 for a complete set.
  6. Additional Procedures: Additional treatments like periodontal therapy, root canals, or orthodontics can add to the overall cost.

Investing in full mouth reconstruction is a long-term investment in your health and well-being. Our team at JBDentistry is dedicated to working with you every step of the way, ensuring you receive the best care and achieve the smile you’ve always desired.
