How much does a Zimmer implant cost?
As a patient, the actual cost of the implant is not most important thing to consider, as you are not only paying for the implant itself, but also for the crown, the time and experince of the dentist and a lot of other things.
However it's good to know that since Zimmer is a high quality brand, your treatment might cost $100 - $300 more compared to replacing your tooth with a more affordable implant. For the complete restoration, that includes not only the implant but the crown as well, you'll probably pay around $3000 - $5000. As you can the difference in implant costs, while not negligible, doesn't make a huge difference in the final price.
