Depending on where an individual lives and the dentist or periodontist chosen, a gum graft can cost up to $1,200 for a single procedure in a specific small area, according to Health.CostHelper.com. As of June 2014, the average cost for one tooth is $600 to $800.
Gum contouring for cosmetic reasons can cost between $1,000 and $3,000. A gum graft may become necessary if the patient has genetically thin gum tissue, periodontal disease or has brushed their teeth aggressively over time. If the tooth root is exposed, painful sensitivity to heat or cold may result, or lack of support could cause teeth to fall out.
