tooth skin grafting

I wear a mouth guard at night because I grind my teeth. I went to the dentist and they said that I would need skin grafting on 5 of my teeth because over time they will be exposed due to the grinding. My insurance does not cover the procedure and i was informed that it would cost 1200.00 per tooth. I just want to make sure this sounds right- I don't know anyone who has had this done.
