Cost of a Dental Implant and Crown? About $3200

Cost of dental implant and crownHow much does a dental implant plus crown cost? In this survey, the average total was about $3,200. That breaks down to $1,800 for the dental implant, $1,400 for the crown, and an additional $600 for a custom abutment.

“Implant fees are too high,” complained one dentist.

“From a patient management perspective, charging a separate fee for an abutment is much more agreeable to the patient than charging a higher fee for an implant crown,” said a prosthodontist. “My fee for an implant crown and a conventional ‘tooth crown’ is the same.”

Here are some other comments from dentists:

  • “Why is there a company in my area that advertises $595 to place an implant? My cost for the implant fixture alone is $300!” (New York dentist)
  • “I’m working in India, and hence even these charges are high for round here!” (India oral surgeon charging $500 for the implant and $500 for the crown)
  • “Implant fees are the biggest objection point to my patients. I personally do not place implants but the specialist that do for me are charging $2000 for each implant.” (Pennsylvania dentist)
  • “I never seem to cover the lab fees well enough.” (Georgia dentist)
