Single Tooth Replacement Cost

If your child has recently lost a permanent tooth, you may be wondering how much a replacement tooth will cost.

Generally, a single tooth replacement will cost between $1,000 and $3,000 for the implant. The price can vary depending on the type of replacement tooth you choose for your child. At Kool Smiles, though, we work to provide our patients with many affordable dental options and financing plans.

Cost of a Tooth Replacement

An entire tooth replacement process typically costs around $4,250. A single tooth replacement option typically costs between $1,000 and $3,000 for the implant.

Note that other costs should be factored in, such as appointment costs, x-rays, and the cost of the crown.

However, Kool Smiles can work with you to make your child’s tooth replacement as affordable as possible.

How Much Does a Crown Cost?

A crown is one of the most common tooth replacement solutions. Dental insurance might cover about 50% of the cost of the crown if it’s needed for medical reasons.

Dental crowns are typically not covered if they are considered cosmetic, and many dental plans have a maximum annual coverage limit of $1,000 to $1,500.

Tooth Replacement Options and Costs

Single tooth dental implants are a popular option for children who have lost a single permanent tooth. Single tooth implants look and act like normal teeth, are typically easier to keep clean, and are better for the gums and jawbone.

Crowns

Dental crowns cover a damaged tooth, strengthening it and improving its appearance, shape, and alignment. A crown can also be placed over an implant for better function.

Your dentist may recommend a crown to replace a large filling, protect a weak tooth from fracturing, or cover a dental implant.

Dental crowns typically cost around $800 and $3,000, but the cost will depend on the material of the crown and how many crowns are needed. Talk to your dentist to get an exact price estimate.

Dental Bridges

dental bridge is another option for replacing your child’s missing permanent tooth.

With dental bridges, a crown is created for the teeth next to the missing tooth and a fake tooth is attached in the middle. Once your child’s dentist has adjusted the fit, the bridge is permanently cemented in place. 

There are multiple types of dental bridges available, and your child’s dentist should recommend the best option.

The cost of this single tooth replacement option will depend on the type of bridge and the materials used, but it typically ranges from $500 to $1,200 per tooth.

Composite Resin

A composite resin (filling) is a tooth-colored mixture used to restore decayed teeth. This option is great for kids who want a more natural-looking tooth replacement.

Most dental insurance plans will cover most of the cost for a composite.
