The Average Cost of Dental Crowns

Posted in Crowns

Dental crowns are notorious for being inconvenient expenses. This is especially the case if you don’t have insurance coverage for the crown procedure you need.

It’s good to take a minute to review some of the factors that influence the price of a crown. You can prepare yourself with some research and shopping around!

What You Need to Know About Dental Treatment Cost

There are a number of different things that will affect how much an office charges for a crown. Some of these include:

  • The economy of the area
  • How well your insurance works with the office
  • The amount of time and care your dentist invests in each crown
  • The lab location and fees where the crown is made
  • The materials used in the crown

Get the Best Deal on a Crown

The “average” cost of a crown depends mainly on where the office is located. You can expect a crown to cost anywhere from a few hundred to a couple thousand dollars here in the United States.

That’s a pretty wide range!

To get a more specific estimate, you need to start asking around at dental offices near you.

An Invaluable Investment for a Lifetime

Your new dental crown will extend the life and usefulness of your tooth. A crown could be the very thing that prevents it from fracturing or developing an abscess. Crowns give your teeth the strength and protection they need after being compromised.

Should you just have the tooth extracted instead?

Discussing the matter with your dentist will help you make the decision that’s best for your smile’s health. Call your local dental office today.
