Cost of Dental Crowns
At Henricksen Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we create personalized treatment plans geared toward delivering flawless, healthy smiles that address your unique oral health care needs. That means that every patient’s dental crown restoration is as unique as their individual situation, and this customization means that the cost of restorative dentistry varies as well. A single dental crown restoration can cost between $500 and $3,000. That’s a big range in pricing. In order to learn more about the pricing of your individual treatment plan, you’ll need to call to schedule a consultation appointment in our state-of-the-art Goode dental office. We’ll examine your smile and walk you through the treatment process, including pricing.
Materials for Dental Crown Restoration
One of the main factors that impacts the cost of your dental crown restoration is the material used to craft the crown. We can offer dental crowns made from a number of different materials, including gold, metal alloy, porcelain fused to metal, zirconia, and ceramic. Metal alloys and porcelain fused to metal crowns are the most affordable options. Unfortunately, metal alloys are noticeable within the smile, making them less than ideal for visible front teeth. Porcelain fused to metal crowns have a more natural appearance, but they need to be replaced every five to seven years to maintain their flawless appearance. Zirconia and ceramic crowns are more natural looking, and they offer long-lasting results. They are pricier than metal alloy, but less expensive gold crowns. Gold restorations offer the longest lasting results with the least wear against opposing teeth. They can be crafted to look a little more like natural tooth structure, but they are not a perfect match. A gold crown may be an ideal option for large, back teeth that absorb the largest amount of pressure during chewing, but that aren’t visible within the smile.
Dental Insurance Coverage
Most dental benefit plans offer 50 to 80% coverage for the cost of your dental crowns. That means you will only need to pay 20 to 50% of the cost. Our team maximizes dental benefit plans to offset treatment pricing. We’ll process and file your insurance claims, and we are in-network providers for Anthem and Delta Dental.
In order to help patients fit the costs of treatment into their budgets, we’re happy to work with CareCredit to provide low and no interest financing options. This third party financier specializes in providing financing for medical and dental care.
