Certain Factors Can Affect the Cost of Your Dental Crown

Posted on 5/27/2016 by Sergio Ortegon
A diagram of how a dental crown works.Are you scheduled to get a dental crown soon, and you are curious how the price of your restoration will be calculated? While your best option is to talk to your dentist directly, there are a few factors that you can consider when it comes to dental crown pricing.

•  Type of Crown. The type of crown and its materials will make a difference in how much your crown costs. Typically, metal crowns will be the cheapest. Ceramic are the next most affordable, while the most expensive tend to be crowns that are made out of metal and ceramic materials.
•  The Number of Teeth. Obviously, the more teeth that need to be repaired, the more expensive your crowns will be. However, if multiple crowns are needed, there may be a fee reduction per item.
•  Temporary Work. When it comes to crowns, it is common that you'll need to wait for a few weeks before your final restoration is ready. Until then, you might need a temporary crown put into place to protect your natural tooth. This price may need to be added to your bill, but that will vary depending on your dental office.
•  Work on the Foundation. If your dentist needs to do any type of work underneath your crown, the cost will also go up. Foundation work like a root canal or implant will affect the price.
•  Dental Lab Skill. The experience and skill of the dental lab will also alter the price of the crown, as labs will vary in the amount that they charge for dental prosthetic production.
•  Technology. New technology is available for some dentists to make dental crowns in their office on the same day. While these are convenient options, they can also be fairly expensive.

As always, if you have questions about dental crowns and how they can benefit your teeth, contact our office today.
