  • Hi SARA,A Maryland (or resin-bonded) bridge typically costs about $250 -$550 for each wing and $600 -$1,200 per false tooth, or a $1,100 -$2,300 for one false tooth with two metal wings and $1,700 -$3,500 with two false teeth.Depending on the materials used (porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-metal or all-ceramic), traditional or cantilever bridges can cost $500 -$3,000 or more per unit, or $1,500 -$6,000 or more total for a three-unit bridge; but they average about $700 -$1,500 per unit or $2,100 -$4,500 for a three-unit bridge.

  • Thanks for the comments. I'd like to know the cost range in my region. I'm contemplating a Maryland Bridge: Region is NYC, he is a prostodontist (specialist, I'm probably misspelling it), it involves one false tooth and three wings, he's not using metal since it makes the adjoining teeth to look grayish but some other modern substance. What should the cost range be? What about for a standard bridge?

  • Hi SARA, The treatment cost varies as per the following criteria: 1. Region to region and country to country 2. Qualification of a dentist. General dentist will charge you less for a particular treatment than specialized dentist. 3.Type of material used while the treatment.

  • If you donot have money then there are chances that you can find free dental work and for this you have to really search for on internet. Call dental offices in area and some of them do charity dental work. You can look for free dental clinics organised by dental groups and these can be found on Another place is to go to dental school near your home where sometimes the treatment is free or very cheap as the budding dentists need patients for hands on training but all the treatment is carried out under supervision of qualified dentists only.
