Dental bridges can be expensive, depending on the actual cost, a person's budget and if insurance covers any of the costs, according to WebMD. The type of bridge also matters in expense; for example, a removable bridge costs less than a crown-supported bridge but is not as stable, says DocShop.
In general, a bridge costs $500 to $1,200 per artificial tooth, according to DocShop in 2015. Factors that affect cost include the materials used, the complexity of the bridge, the manufacturing process, the cost charged by the dentist for her experience and other considerations, and the region of the country. Dental insurance frequently covers at least part of the cost, and many dentists offer payment plans.
