Broken Tooth Repair Cost

If your child has a chipped or broken tooth, you may be worrying about how much it will cost to get it repaired. The cost depends on how much work has to be done to repair the tooth.

Learn how Kool Smiles can help repair broken teeth at a cost you can afford.

How Much Will The Broken Tooth Repair Cost?

The broken tooth repair cost depends on how much time and materials are needed to fix the damage. In many cases, dental insurance will cover some of the cost.

Here are some estimates for broken tooth repair without insurance:

  • Fillings: $100–$500
  • Dental crowns: $250–$2,000, depending on the location and type of crown
  • Root canal therapy: $500–$1,000, depending on location and severity of tooth damage

Despite these costs, Kool Smiles offers affordable payment options to make tooth repair easy to afford.

Is Treating a Broken Tooth Necessary?

Whether it’s a little chip in a front tooth or a big crack along a molar, injuries to a child’s tooth should be seen by a dentist right away. Jagged edges can cut your child’s cheek or tongue and even damage other teeth while they are chewing or speaking.

A cracked tooth could become infected and have to be pulled—leading to more dentist visits and possible problems.

The dentists at Kool Smiles know how to treat your child’s broken tooth. They accept many insurance plans, including Medicaid, SCHIP (State Children’s Health Insurance Plan), and TRICARE, so you don’t have to worry about broken tooth repair cost.

How Is A Broken Tooth Repaired?

What kind of treatment your child’s dentist will do on a broken tooth depends on the injury. Here are some common treatments:

  • Repair the tooth with a filling.
  • Cover the tooth with a crown or cap.
  • If nerves in the tooth are exposed, your child’s dentist may perform root canal therapy before placing a crown over the injured tooth. 

Kool Smiles dentists follow American Dental Association (ADA) guidelines so they will be honest and accurate when deciding which treatment is best.
