If you’re missing a tooth, you’ve likely heard that dental implants are the gold standard. Do you find that you’re ready for the best solution available but still wonder how much dental implants cost?

At our Kansas City, MO, dental office, we hear this question from patients all the time. In this blog post, we'll explore the typical pricing for dental implants, insurance coverage, financing options, and other topics related to payment and costs.

Industry Averages & Our Pricing

According to Forbes Health, the average cost of a dental implant-supported crown in 2023 typically falls between $3,000 and $4,500. This is generally in line with our pricing for the replacement of a single missing tooth.

If you need to replace an entire arch of missing teeth, the cost will be higher. The exact amount charged will depend on factors we will cover a litter later in the post.

Rest assured that the team at our Kansas City dental office will deliver an accurate price quote just for you.

Does Insurance Cover Implants?

Despite their renowned benefits, insurance typically only contributes to traditional restorations. What this means, though, is that while you will need to pay for the implants themselves, your provider will likely cover at least part of your crown, bridge, or denture. Our team will work carefully to maximize your benefits.

Financing Options for Dental Implants

Patients are welcome to pay by cash, check, debit card, or credit card. But you might also want to consider financing for lower interest rates – or none at all, depending on your credit score.

We’re happy to walk you through the benefits of each option, as well as help you get started on the application process.

Can I Get an Estimate?

The only way we can provide you with an accurate estimate is to meet with you in our Kansas City office.

During an initial consultation, we'll examine your mouth and discuss your concerns and goals. Several factors will determine the estimate for your dental work, including:

The Materials You Choose

We offer a range of dental materials, each of which comes with its own unique benefits. Obviously, some will cost more than others. If you need to replace a missing tooth in the front of your mouth, for example, you should consider the most aesthetic option, whereas back teeth can benefit from the most durable materials, especially if you’re prone to teeth grinding.

Whether You Require Additional Work

Implants require healthy gums and a strong, dense jawbone. While some preparatory procedures like bone grafting will be out-of-pocket, others, like periodontal treatment, are covered. We can provide all the treatment you require in-office to ensure healthy, lasting results.

Contact Us to Learn More About Investing in Your Smile

We have heard our patients tell us time and again: the decision to get implants was an excellent investment in their smile.

The cost of living with missing teeth is high. If you find yourself laughing less, limiting your diet, or making other concessions, it’s time to make a change. Contact our Kansas City practice today to learn more about your unique treatment plan and how much dental implants could cost you.
