How Much Does a Dental Crown Cost?

      It's tricky to find an estimate for a dental crown online.

      There are two big reasons for this:

  1. A price tag shouldn't determine whether or not you pursue dental treatment.
  2. The price depends on a lot of individual factors that you can't always predict.

What sort of factors make a difference? 

Insurance Coverage

Many insurance plans provide limited coverage for dental crowns. They'll often pay differently depending on whether you're getting the cap for cosmetic or medical reasons. No one except your insurance provider can tell you what sort of coverage to expect. 50% coverage is common, but you can't plan for that without checking first.

Dental Crown Material

Metal caps tend to be cheaper than porcelain ones, but not by much. The price of porcelain crowns reflects their reputation for being durable and natural-looking. Modern dental offices like Dream Dentist promote the use of porcelain restorations. 

Flexible Payment Plans

To comfortably afford your dental crown, you might try out a personalized payment plan.

A great dental payment plan will include:

  • Low or no interest
  • Flexible, customized payment schedules
  • Low monthly payments

With a little financial help, a dental crown is more affordable than you may realize. It could also be more important to your dental health than you may realize.

Teeth with:

  • Root canal therapy
  • Fractures or large chips
  • Extensive decay

…can really stand to benefit from a dental crown. If you wait too long to treat the tooth, you can end up losing it altogether. Contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Thompson and get a personalized estimate on any necessary treatment.
