This can range from a few hundred dollars for a small chip that requires dental bonding, to a few thousand dollars for more severe chips or breaks that a require root canal surgery and a crown.
Some estimates below without dental insurance:
If your child chips or breaks a tooth, it's important to see the dentist right away. The treatment depends where the tooth was broken or chipped, the severity of the damage, and other factors.
For a tooth with a small chip, your dentist may recommend fixing it with a filling or bond. These procedures can usually be completed in one office visit and don't require extensive dental work or crowns to be placed on the teeth.
For severe tooth damage, your dentist may recommend more advanced therapy. For instance, if a large part of the tooth breaks, your dentist may recommend a dental cap or crown to help fix it.
In severe cases where the tooth is broken off, but the root structure is still intact, the dentist will likely refer your child to an endodontist who specializes in root canal therapies. The endodontist will most likely perform a root canal to prevent infection.
