Here, we will discuss the average price of a single crown in different materials. When we’re discussing cost, it probably doesn’t help to say it’s between $89 and $2,500 without thinking it through.

If you are on a budget, you may be able to have this procedure in a less expensive country than the lower-quality of treatment. Reduced quality can lower the standard of care and require more touch-ups or redone crowns.

You could also consider a dental insurance plan, but dental insurance isn’t always easy to get. Additionally, a monthly payment plan may also be an option. We will also discuss this possibility. let’s start!

1. How much is a dental crown?

You’re here to talk about money, so let’s get started. Let’s start by saying that ceramic fused metal crowns are the cheapest. E-max and Zirconia crowns are the most expensive as they have the highest quality and aesthetic factors.

While you may want to choose the lowest possible option, consider one very important factor: lowest quality, lowest staying power. This means you may need to see your dentist more often or have your crowns redone more often. They say you get what you pay for. Therefore, it is also important to understand the long-term price of surgery.

2. How much does a temporary crown cost?

Usually, the cost of a temporary crown is included in the price of the permanent crown. You’ll only be wearing them for a few weeks, and they’re very cheap and done by a dentist. However, if we’re talking about price, you should know that a temporary crown can cost anywhere from $15 to $100.

Remember to ask your dentist if the price of a temporary crown is included in the total treatment cost.

3. How much does a crown replacement cost?

What if you’ve had crown surgery and need a crown replacement? How much does it cost compared to traditional crown surgery?

Although there is no need for whole teeth, only the crown needs to be replaced, the work to be done by a dentist is not much different from that of a first-time patient. Therefore, the prices are usually similar, just slightly cheaper. Prices for crown replacements range from $60 to $2800 per tooth/crown.

4. What factors affect the price of dental crowns?

When we talk about the cost of a crown, you should know the different factors that affect the price. First, in which country are you getting your crowns installed? The highest prices are usually in the US, UK, and Canada.

Also, the crown type and crown material greatly affect the price; the cheapest crowns are usually ceramic fused to metal.

Your price may go up if you need a root canal or other dental treatment.

This lowers prices when a clinic has an in-house dental laboratory because there is no need to pay third-party prices. You can save some money if the clinic offers a plan discount option. If you get dental crowns done in a private clinic or hospital, the quality of service will be higher and the price will definitely go up.

5. Why are dental crowns so expensive?

We talked about the cost of dental crowns, and you might be wondering, “Why are these treatments so expensive ?”. Well, let’s explain what you are paying for when you pay for a crown.

    • Dental work: First, you pay for two dentist appointments, each ranging from 1 to 4 hours in length. All dental work is included in the final price you will pay;
    • Lab  Fees: Not only will you pay for the dental work, but you will also pay for the dental lab that will make the crown. This laboratory will create your crowns, which will be custom-made for you. This requires a lot of skill, time, and patience. Sometimes more than one person will work on your crown;
    • Crown  Material: Imagine creating something exactly like a tooth, but it’s not a tooth. Now imagine having to do it very thin and very strong. Yes, the materials to do all this are expensive, so it might seem like an expensive procedure. But they will be your trusted companions for over 20 years.
    • Doctor’s experience: If you want the best treatment, you must choose a skilled doctor. It will cost more to see an experienced and qualified dentist than an inexperienced one. It will be an investment in your oral health and well-being!
    • Durability: A good crown will last you long enough that you don’t need to pay back the same amount every year. Crowns can even last 30+ years!
    • Investment: When you get a crown and consider the cost of a crown, think of it as a long-term investment in your well-being and dental health. Crowns protect your teeth from future damage and lengthy and expensive surgery. How much to invest in your health?

Is the crown worth it?

“Is the crown worth the money?” is a question we hear often.”. Well, first of all, it depends on your dental needs and whether a crown is right for you. If dental crowns are an option for you, they are worth the money as they not only improve your appearance but your oral health as well. Here’s why the Crown is worth the money and a good investment:

  • durability
  • improve oral health
  • protect natural teeth
  • Straighter and better smile

Durability: Crowns can last a long time if you take care of your oral hygiene. If you take care of your oral hygiene, most crowns last 15 to 20 years. This is why crowns are known to be a good investment because once you get them, you can use them for many years.

Improves Oral Health: A crown is a protective cap that covers a tooth after it has been damaged in one way or another. With a crown in place, you protect your tooth from further damage and promote overall oral health.

Preserve natural teeth:  With a crown, you don’t have to go through the fear of tooth extraction. They protect your natural teeth and restore their function to normal.

Straighter and more beautiful smile:  If you wear dental crowns, you can not only restore oral health but also achieve a beautiful smile. If your teeth are broken, chipped, misshapen, or stained, they can help you achieve a well-groomed smile.

6. Frequently asked questions about veneer prices

There are so many questions about the cost of dental crowns that we want to answer as many as possible. Of course, we cannot answer all of them. But we chose some of these we are always asked about. Plus, if you feel like you need more information, it’s just a few clicks away. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

1) Are dental crowns covered by insurance?

Yes, dental crowns are covered if deemed a medical necessity. Therefore, it is up to you to justify the procedure as necessary, not as a cosmetic treatment. Typically, dental insurance plans only cover up to 50% of the procedure. Insurance fees are refunded in a timely manner. You may need to wait for a refund of the fee; these periods vary and can be as long as 3 years, depending on your policy.

2) Can you pay Krona monthly?

While we don’t offer this option, you can find dental offices that allow monthly payments. This usually involves taking a loan from a bank through the clinic and making monthly payments over a certain period of time. There are usually some interest rates involved and you may end up paying more than a single payment program.

3) Can you get the crown for free?

Oh no. Even if you find that dental insurance is willing to cover your surgery in most cases, they will only cover some of it. Another way is to have someone pay for you, that would be amazing! But sadly, there is no way to get a crown for free other than a gift from someone.

4) Crown financing: is it possible?

Some dentists may offer financing plans, especially if you go to a cosmetic dental office. Often, clinics have internal financing plans or partnerships with one or more banks. However, some conditions apply and usually, some interest rate is involved. You should contact your dentist to discuss this option.

Currently, we do not offer financial plans.

5) Where can I get the best price on dental crowns?

If you want to keep costs down but maintain the best quality, you have only one option: medical tourism. Dental crowns of the highest quality are available at affordable prices in other countries if you are willing to travel. There are usually some dental plans: they have fees but no insurance, but the all-inclusive hotel, transportation, and assistance. Chasing the lowest price in an expensive country can become a risk and bring hidden dangers.
