Cost of Dental Crowns

How much do they cost? Having dental crowns placed is not like going in to your dentist to have a check up or cleaning.ᅠ There are many variables, including the time it takes for the dentist to consult with you, the amount of training the dentist has, the experience of the lab making the crown, and how much time it takes to make the crown look and feel natural.

Generally there are several different crown materials that are available to you.ᅠ Depending on what kind of work you need to have done, some of these will not be available to you.ᅠ Each of these materials also has it own different pros and cons and your dentist will know which one is best suited to your particular dental needs.

The most popular kinds of dental crowns are:

ᅠᅠᅠ * Porcelain fused to gold
ᅠᅠᅠ * Porcelain fused to semi-precious metal
ᅠᅠᅠ * Porcelain fused to non-precious
ᅠᅠᅠ * Full gold
ᅠᅠᅠ * Full semi-precious metal
ᅠᅠᅠ * All porcelain dental crowns

While this is only a ball park figure dental crowns cost around $1000.00 to $2,000 per crown.

The cost of the dental crown depends on the area of the country the crown is being made in. Dentists in large cities have higher overhead costs and pay staff and rents that often are double or triple of what rural dentists pay.
