Dental Implant Cost

Dental implants are considered to be the best way to replace missing teeth. Implants can even preserve a healthy jawbone.

Dental implant costs can vary depending on several factors. However, this state-of-the-art procedure can be worth every penny.

What affects dental implant cost and how can the esteemed dentists at Cary Prosthodontics of Cary, NC, make the procedure more affordable?

A Complete, Healthy Smile Is Worth the Investment

Before dental implants
After dental implants
Dental implants and top-quality, natural-looking restorations placed by our skilled dentists, Drs. Brandon Kofford and Kevin Lim, can restore your ability to smile, eat, and speak normally. Many of our patients consider the boost in self-confidence a dazzling smile gives them to be priceless.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dental Implants? Unfortunately, No. 

Most insurance plans will not cover the cost of your actual dental implant surgery, despite it being one of the most successful and advanced procedures in dentistry. However, your insurance may cover the crowns, dentures, or bridges that your dentist will attach to your implants at our Cary, NC, practice. If you have insurance, our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be happy to check with your carrier about coverage.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Dental Implants

Our highly trained dentists can discuss implant costs during an educational consultation at our Cary, NC, dental practice, conveniently located about 15 minutes outside of Raleigh. Factors include:

Type of Dental Implants

Our dentists offer different kinds of dental implants and implant placement procedures, depending on your individual dental goals and oral health. 

Number of Implants

You may need one dental implant to replace a single tooth or multiple implants to replace a few, several, or all your teeth.

Additional Procedures

A bone grafting may be needed to strengthen your jawbone before dental implants are placed. In other cases, a damaged tooth may need to be extracted to make room for an implant.


After dental implant surgery, a connector piece called an abutment will be attached to each implant. Then, high-quality restorations like dentures or crowns are securely attached to the abutments. The number and types of restorations needed will affect your final cost.

Initial Exam

Cary Prosthodontics uses the most advanced technology, such as digital x-rays and 3-D scanning, to ensure that your implant placement is done as precisely, comfortably, and effectively as possible. This can add to your dental implant cost.


Dental implant placement is made virtually painless using numbing anesthetic. However, some of our Cary, NC, patients request calming sedation if they are feeling nervous about the surgery. 

The only way to receive an estimate tailored to your needs is to visit our office and speak with our team.
