In the US flipper teeth normally are in the US$500 price range. Unless you have much money to spare, the price may be a bit stiff for a temporary solution to a missing tooth. The price and the inconvenience (most users remove them while eating as they are not well secured) with its use are a deterrent to some.
In the United States flipper teeth is an option in replacing a missing tooth of a person that's typically cost for about five hundred dollars. The accessories that are used may also add to the cost of the flipper teeth.
I found a licensed denturist from a friend who made me a durable little flipper for $80 dollars. So don't be scared to inquire about cost and possibly working with you on the payment of the flipper. This made me feel so much more confident about smiling until I could afford a more permanent solution.
