We are aware that the question of cost is important to you. However, it is extremely difficult to answer. The financial outlay required always depends on the scope of the implantation. Is it a single implant or a complete dental restoration? The material also plays an important role in the price. We offer our patients a digitally planned solution that promises maximum safety. Please contact us if you have any questions about the costs. We will develop an individual treatment plan with you so that you can precisely define your costs.

As a rule, the provision of implants is not supported by the statutory health insurance. However, it is possible that the health insurance company will subsidize certain treatments. You should check with your insurance company in advance. Private insurance companies usually cover the costs.

The actual implantation usually takes no more than one to two hours. Of course, this also depends on the extent of the procedure. It can take two to four months for the implant to grow completely into the jaw.

In the best case, implants last a lifetime. However, for this you need good care and regular professional dental cleanings 3-4 times a year by our dental hygienists. Inflammations in the mouth are not only a danger for your teeth, but can also lead to the loss of the implant in the worst case. Here, our prophylaxis experts are at your side with advice and support.

We offer you various anesthesia options to make the implantation as comfortable as possible. The procedure itself is performed under anesthesia, so you will not feel a thing. After the implantation, hardly any impairments in everyday life are to be expected.


With All-on-4, we provide a complete jaw with dentures. The method is therefore suitable for patients with an edentulous jaw or a residual dentition that cannot be preserved.

Your dentures are indistinguishable from your real teeth - functionally and visually! In addition, the method offers the advantage that you can load your new dentures on the same evening. The annoying wait for the denture is therefore eliminated with All-on-4.

Since every patient has different prerequisites for implants, it depends on whether it is a complete dental restoration or a partial restoration, the question of costs cannot be answered in a generalized way. As your dentist for complete dental restorations, we attach great importance to transparency and want you to be informed about the next step at every stage of the treatment. We will be happy to discuss the treatment and cost plan with you as part of your dental restoration and explain the relevant cost factors.

Veneers are wafer-thin veneers made of all-ceramic or composite, with which we can make blemishes on the front teeth disappear. The dental veneers are permanently bonded to the tooth using the adhesive technique.

Veneers made of all-ceramics have a particularly good durability. With proper care, dental veneers can last 15 years and more. There are even scientific studies in which veneers did not require any touch-ups for 20 years after treatment!

There are many possible applications for veneers. In general, the tooth should be free of caries and inflammation. Dental veneers can also be bonded to crowns.

Whether a tooth misalignment should be treated with dental veneers or braces is best decided after a thorough examination. In principle, dental veneers can also conceal crooked teeth without any problems.

The carbamide peroxide used to whiten teeth is not capable of whitening ceramic or composite. If your veneer subsequently discolors, it may be due to the adhesive used. Another possibility is that the natural tooth shines through. We would be happy to take a closer look at this in our practice.

In addition to classic veneers, there are other options for veneering teeth. We distinguish between: Veneers to go and non prep veneers.

The so-called instant veneers allow treatment in just one session. This means that you come to our practice - and leave with dental veneers. To do this, we use the Cerec process, which allows us to fabricate all-ceramic dental restorations in just a few minutes. There is no need for a master dental technician to individually adjust the veneers. Veneers to go are generally only suitable for cosmetic corrections to individual teeth.

Non-prep veneers give you a natural and healthy-looking smile while hiding unsightly misalignments, gaps between teeth, or chipped teeth.

Similar to veneers, Non.Prep veneers are wafer-thin ceramic veneers with a thickness comparable to contact lenses. They are made individually for each tooth and adapted to the natural shape and color of your teeth. Compared to veneers, no healthy tooth substance has to be ground down in the process.


The decisive factor for the costs is the effort required in the practice. How extensive bleaching is depends on the extent of discoloration. As a rule, each jaw is calculated individually.

Ideally, the tooth shade will last for several years. However, it is not possible to give an exact time frame. It depends very much on the patient's lifestyle habits. Smoking and the consumption of coffee, tea and red wine influence the color of the teeth. Regular professional teeth cleaning, on the other hand, has a positive effect on the brightness of the teeth.

These methods are not only not very successful, but can also cause inflammation and irritate the tissue. Therefore, one should refrain from bleaching according to the motto "do it yourself".

Before bleaching, we remove stubborn plaque from the teeth and interdental spaces during a professional dental cleaning. Only then can we see how badly the teeth are actually discolored. In addition, it must be ensured that the teeth do not have any cavities caused by caries. If the bleaching substance penetrates the tooth through such a hole, it can cause damage.

Purely cosmetic corrections, such as bleaching, are personal services and are not reimbursed by health insurance. Larger corrections that have a medical necessity may be partially covered by the health insurance. Here you should contact your insurance company for a binding statement.

No, dentures cannot be whitened. Anyone who decides to undergo bleaching should therefore be prepared to have fillings and dentures renewed.

Our dentist Dr. Stefan Schultheis specializes in treatment with Digital Smile Design. He knows the important features of beautiful teeth and helps you achieve a harmonious image between teeth, lips and face.

The duration of the treatment depends very much on your wishes that your new teeth should fulfill. After a consultation and the image recordings, you will receive from us an exact statement about the planned duration of treatment.

Treatment with Digital Smile Design is not a service covered by statutory health insurance. The costs you can expect will be determined, among other things, by the extent of the treatment and the material we use for your new teeth. As soon as we can make a reliable statement about the costs, you will receive a cost estimate from us.

A prerequisite for treatment with DSD is a healthy mouth. This means that there must be no inflammation and/or caries. Likewise, it is our responsibility to advise you against treatment if it is detrimental to the preservation of teeth or oral health.
