The complete replacement of a missing tooth requires 3 services; the implant, plus a natural looking crown, and an abutment to attach the crown to the implant. Frequently, there are 2 dentists involved; who one places the implant, and another who makes the crown and abutment. Paying separately for the services of 2 dentists is costly. Because I render all 3 of the services myself, I can offer implants to my patient at a significantly reduced fee.
After an appropriate healing period of no less than two months, an abutment will be placed ($595) and, finally, a natural looking crown will be placed ($1195). Payment is not due for each component until it is completed, generally, several months after the implant is placed.
