The final price of dental implants is the total of several different parts of the dental implant process and materials. We’ll add these up for you and give you a range of possible prices. The reason that the prices are given as ranges is that each case is unique, built from different materials and added features.
The Cost of a Single Tooth Implant
If you’re missing one tooth, a single tooth implant and tooth restoration can replace it. The whole system is made of three parts:
- A titanium dental implant, which acts as the new tooth root.
- An implant abutment, which connects the implant to a crown.
- The crown, or replacement tooth.
The dental surgery to place the titanium implant will still vary based on many factors, so schedule a consultation with our team at Discovery Dental to learn your options. This price includes an operation that permanently places a new tooth root in an optimal position. Some patients need a bone graft, which can raise the price, and insurance can lower the price.
The Cost of an Abutment
Each abutment is customized to connect your tooth implant with your dental crown. A new tooth can’t sit directly on the post of the implant. It would be like balancing a car on a flagpole. So, an abutment is used to create a platform your dentist can securely attach the crown or other tooth restoration to.
At your local dentist office in Issaquah, we will attach the abutment to your implant so that it is flush with your gumline. We may place your abutment some time before the crown, because it will help keep your gums growing in a natural, good-looking shape, ready for the new tooth.
Getting your abutment placed will generally cost less than the main implant procedure; again the price range will vary based on the abutment materials and insurance discounts.

The Cost of a Dental Crown
Each new crown—the top part of the tooth restoration and the chewing surface and sides of the tooth—will carry its own cost that can vary from tooth to tooth. It is a fairly wide range of costs because many types of crowns are available. You can choose between ceramic crowns, porcelain, composite resin, and even precious metals.
Some crowns are also highly customized to achieve certain aesthetic dentistry results. The process of crafting the material to look just right takes more labor.
If you’re concerned about tooth implant costs, look over your insurance policy. You can also discuss this with your employer if you have coverage through your job. Find out if your insurance can lower the price. We can also help you find this information when you come to Discovery Dental for a consultation!
The Cost of Multiple Implants
When you need several new teeth, the dentist office can add up the estimated final cost of all the parts needed. You will need several dental implants placed in your jaw. You might need a dental bone graft. And you’ll either need tooth crowns or appliances attached to the implants.
Some smaller tooth implant processes can be much more affordable compared to large scale full-mouth implant restorations. The more teeth implants are placed, the higher the cost. Certain customizations also add to the price, such as getting a removable bridge or implant-supported dentures.

Affordable dental implants can be a long-term investment. Other restorative dentistry solutions can wear out and need additional procedures and purchases. But each dental implant is designed to be stable and permanent for the rest of your life, becoming like a natural tooth root.
Your jawbone will naturally bond to a titanium dental implant, making it part of your dental system. It will be so stable that you’ll forget it’s there, letting you eat your favorite foods and brush and floss your teeth normally.
