The following price list is available at simple request at the reception desk of Dental Hospital, Sukhumvit Soi 49. I could not find it on their website. We show a selection of procedures below, the list is quite comprehensive, and may be a good guide to estimate costs.
I reckon the prices quoted are not the cheapest in Thailand. Then again, quality of work and material, we assume, are well above average.
This list was retrieved dd. December 2016. It dates from September 2016. Compared with the data listed in 2013, most prices have not increased. Some surgical procedures, crowns and items involving gold, have somewhat increased in price. Then again, the dollar has increased in value since 2013 (from around 33 baht for one dollar, to about 35.5 baht for one dollar at the end op 2016). Therefore in U.S. Dollar terms, there is no or minimal 'dental inflation'.
One final note : you may compare prices as listed with other dental facilities or hospitals. This is useful. Even more useful, if you are presented with expensive procedures, it to obtain a second opinion, not only regarding prices, but also whether an altogether less expensive treatment might suffice. In this regard, it it good to note that initial evaluation (and most dental X-rays) are rather not expensive, so you do not wast a lot of money getting different opinions. All that said, we personally have relied for our treatments on Dental Hospital, with little regrets.
Remember, if you have one of the more expensive treatments, you may have to pay before the treatment has been concluded. So bring your cash or credit card with you from the first visit.

** : In practice, prices may vary depending on (?) location, size, material.
In 2013, we had a lot of fillings.
On one occasion, 3 composite fillings costs me 9,600 baht, which is way higher than advertised prices. On another occasion, I was charged 6,400 baht for 4 composite fillings, which fits the prices listed and is exactly half of what I paid earlier per filling.
A filling I received at Bumrungrad Hospital costs me 2,400 baht. We suggest, you interpret the above prices as guidelines.
In any case, especially for substantial treatments, it is useful to ask for an estimate of the costs beforehand. Also, be reminded, that for more expensive procedures, you will be asked to pay in advance, either the whole sum, or a substantial part of it.
***: Our experience : there can be additional cost such as "crown buildup" (2,000 baht), and prefabricated post and core (3,500 baht). We assume similar add-on costs also apply for the crowns with other material composition. Don't forget that the price of placing a crown does not include a prior root canal treatment (if necessary) and intraoral-periapical X-ray films. Just to sum it up : We paid a total all included for one crown (including root canals) of 41,100 baht end 2016.
****: At the time we received dental implants (2014), we checked prices at major facilities in Bangkok (Bumrungrad, BNH Hospital, Samitivej) and found prices as reported by email to be very similar.
For those uninitiated, we found the procedure involved, much less dramatic and 'easy' than we anticipated.
