Sorry, your description is about as vague as a post like, "My car has an engine problem. How much do Swiss garages charge for fixing that?"

Even if you provided much more detailed information, that could not replace a proper examination with x-ray pictures and the like. So the only possible answer to your question is, "Somewhere between 300 and 10,000 CHF." Hope this helps.

There is something like a screw implanted and a ceramic teeth fited to it.. which looks like normal teeth... to implant the screw there is small surgery... for 1/2 hr or so. this all the information I have...

Re: Maxili surgery

Roopa, you don't seem to understand. What you saw on TV or in a magazine doesn't matter. What counts is the actual situation in your mouth. Is the void suitably shaped for an implant? Is the bone thick enough (in three dimensions!) and is it sufficiently dense? After years that is questionable. Are the gums in top shape? Otherwise forget an implant. Implants need significantly more care (read: cleaning) than natural teeth. Are there simpler, cheaper and less risky solutions?

As I said, no one can answer these questions without a thorough examination of your particular case and not of a TV report.
