Hi,

Thanks for using ' Just Answer ' and i would be glad to assist you.

Veneers are usually indicated for aesthetic purpose for discolored / misshaped / slightly chipped / pitted surface etc and never as a substitute for filling.Veneers are not the solution for the decayed tooth.Even though you have lost few of your back teeth, it is always advisable to save the tooth,if possible.Your dentist would guide you whether a filling or RCT ( Root Canal Therapy ) is required for the same. Once the decayed or the problematic teeth are treated, for the other missing teeth, you could go in for partial dentures or fixed bridges,if possible.

The Cost of these would depend on many factors such as Country , Location, Complexity, Material used, Experience of Dentist and many other factors.

For Front Tooth - $400 - $700 ( One Canal )

For Back Molar - $700 -$1000

Typical Metal Filling would cost - $75 - $150 Per Filling

Composite Resin Filling would Cost - $150 - $200 Per Filling

Partial Removable Dentures - $1400 - $2800

The above data is only an estimation of the price and it could differ depending on the many factors.

Any Further Questions, Revert and i would be glad to Answer.

Kindly Accept the Solution,if 100% Satisfied from my response.

Bonuses would be Appreciated.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
