How Much Dental Implant Can Cost?

Dental Implant cost can range from $2500 to as much as $5000. Even if the cost is partly covered by your insurance, there is still a big out of pocket expense

Dr Harmanpreet Kaur of Dental Designer explains what exactly are you paying for when you get an implant.

  • Implant

Dental implants are made of titanium post that is screwed into your jaw bone and designed to replicate the form and function of tooth’s natural roots. Titanium metal is strong, lightweight and long lasting. A foreign object that has to stay in your mouth for number of years should be strong and durable and therefore is expensive.

  • Porcelain Crown

The porcelain crown sits on top of the post and resembles your original tooth. Crowns are custom made to fit in with rest of the teeth. It is important to match shape and colour of the other teeth so that end product blends seamlessly with your smile. A customized artificial tooth that feels exactly as natural tooth has a higher cost.

The final dental implant cost is high because it’s a surgical procedure. There are years of training a dentist go through and experience is required to exactly know where to place the dental implant. Only a careful planned surgery can precisely install an implant.
