The cost of dental bridge depends on various factors, such as, type of dental bridge (zirconia, porcelain), number of missing teeth, number of tooth crowns in the dental bridge, location of the clinic, and experience of the doctor.
The average cost of a dental bridge in a rich country like USA is $ 1260 per tooth. But, in inexpensive locations outside of USA, it costs $ 80 per tooth for the same quality of dental bridge, and the treatment done by an equally well experienced doctor.
A dental bridge is very expensive in USA, but you can save a lot of money by traveling to an affordable location outside of USA for 3-4 days for the treatment.
For example, at our clinic, the cost of a dental bridge made of 3 tooth crowns (zirconia) is $ 240
which is 16 times lower than the average cost of $ 3780 in USA. So, you can save a lot of money, and at the same time enjoy a free holiday trip.
Although the cost of dental treatment outside of USA is very low as compared to the cost of the treatment in USA, there are other costs to consider before deciding to travel for affordable treatment. These costs are:
Round trip flight
: $ 500
USA 🡆 India 🡆 USA
Stay in hotel per day
: $ 30
Visa (1 year validity)
: $ 40
A dental bridge is made of multiple tooth crowns. Therefore, the total cost of a dental bridge is calculated by multiplying the cost of one tooth crown with the total number of tooth crowns in a dental bridge.
The average cost of a tooth crown (zirconia) is $ 1260 in USA and $ 80 outside of USA at our clinic.
Total cost of a dental bridge in USA = $ 1260 X total number of tooth crowns
Total cost of a dental bridge outside of USA = $ 80 X total number of tooth crowns
Example, for a dental bridge made from 3 tooth crowns, the cost will be:
Cost in USA
$ 1260 X 3
Cost outside of USA
$ 80 X 3
$ 1260 X 3
: $ 3780
$ 80 X 3
: $ 240
The average cost of a dental bridge of 3 tooth crowns that replaces one missing tooth, is $ 3780 in USA and $ 240 outside of USA at our clinic.
The average cost of a dental bridge of 3 tooth crowns (zirconia) outside of USA is $ 240. The total cost of a dental bridge is calculated by multiplying the cost of one tooth crown with the total number of tooth crowns in the dental bridge.
Total cost of a dental bridge = $ 80 X total number of tooth crowns
1 Missing tooth
3 tooth crowns
$ 80 X 3
2 Missing teeth
4 tooth crowns
$ 80 X 4
: $ 1260 X 3
: $ 3780
: $ 1260 X 4
: $ 5040
