In brief: It can vary

Sometimes when a baby tooth is lost the permanent tooth is right there and comes in quickly.
You may be able to see it in a few days but it will take several weeks for the tooth to fully erupt. Sometimes a permanent tooth is not in position to erupt immediately and it can take some time for it to erupt. This happens more frequently if a baby tooth comes out early due to trauma or decay.

In brief: Varies

Child to child. Having said that once you see the tissue red and swollen the range is 1-7 days to see the tip of the tooth then it could be a month or more for the entire tooth to be shown and it takes 3 yrs for the root to completely form, sport mouth guard highly recommended with brushing and flossing.
