Dental Crown Costs

Dental Crown Costs

We not only brighten your smile but also offer comprehensive dental solutions including dental crowns. Understanding the costs associated with dental crowns is crucial for our clients. In this section, we'll guide you through everything you need to know about dental crown costs.

What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-fitted cap placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are necessary for various dental procedures, including root canals, cosmetic enhancements, and as a part of dental bridges.

Factors Influencing the Cost of Dental Crowns

Understanding these factors can help patients make informed decisions about their dental crown procedures. At Sydney Teeth Whitening, we provide detailed consultations to discuss these aspects and help you choose the best option for your dental health and budget.

Material Used
  • Porcelain: Porcelain crowns are popular for their natural tooth-like appearance. They are ideal for front teeth restorations due to their aesthetic appeal. However, porcelain is often more expensive than other materials due to its intricate crafting process and natural appearance.
  • Ceramic: Similar to porcelain, ceramic crowns offer a natural look and are also well-suited for people with metal allergies. They are slightly more affordable than pure porcelain but still on the higher end of the cost spectrum.
  • Metal: Metal crowns, often made from gold, silver, or other alloys, are the most durable. They withstand biting and chewing forces well and last the longest. Metal crowns are less expensive than porcelain and ceramic but are more noticeable, making them a better choice for out-of-sight molars.
  • Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM): These crowns offer a balance between durability and aesthetics. They have a metal core for strength and are covered with porcelain for a more natural look. PFM crowns are typically more affordable than pure porcelain but more expensive than metal crowns.
Complexity of the Procedure
  • Condition of the Tooth: If the tooth requiring the crown has extensive decay or damage, the preparation work becomes more complex, increasing the cost.
  • Customisation Needs: Crowns that require special customisation, either for aesthetic reasons or due to unique dental structures, can also add to the cost.
  • Technique Used: Advanced techniques like digital scans for crown fitting may incur additional costs compared to traditional impression methods.
Additional Treatments
  • Root Canal Therapy: If the tooth needing a crown also requires a root canal, this will add to the overall cost. Root canal therapy is necessary when the tooth’s pulp is infected or inflamed, which is a more complex procedure.
  • Gum Therapy: In cases where gum disease has affected the tooth’s structure, gum therapy might be needed before crown placement. This ensures a healthy foundation for the crown, adding to the total cost.
  • Dental Implants: If a crown is part of a dental implant procedure, the cost will be significantly higher. Implants require surgery to place a metal post in the jawbone, which serves as the anchor for the crown.
