If you are thinking about getting a dental bridge, complete dentures, or implants to replace missing teeth, you may find that even with dental insurance, you are paying a lot of money. However, keep in mind that these procedures often require multiple visits with a dentist, oral/maxillofacial surgeon, or both. They may involve the work of a special dental laboratory, x-rays, and multiple fittings -- but when finished, the tooth replacement may last for many years.
Jerry Gordon, Dentistry, answeredTooth replacements cost more than most other dental treatment because the dentist has to pay his laboratory to make them. The "hard" cost of an implant, crown or denture is added to all of the other office overhead.
