The cost to fix a minor break, such as a chip in a tooth, ranges from about $100 all the way up to $1,000 in some cases. The exact price depends on the severity of the break, local rates and the dentist's expertise.
For breaks that are more severe, a patient often needs veneers or crowns to repair the issue. Dental veneers cost anywhere from around $500 to $1,300 per tooth. If a crown is needed, a patient should expect to pay from $500 to $3,000 per tooth. Unless the repair is needed for structural purposes, insurance usually does not cover the procedure.
