What Is The Cost Of Dental Crowns - My Dentist
A common question that we get is: why are dental crowns a little bit more expensive compared to other dental services & treatments that dentists offer?

Although at My Dentist, we aim to keep all of our procedures and services as affordable as possible, dental crowns can still be a little bit dearer compared to other things that we do.

The reason for dental crowns being a little bit more expensive is the fact that they involve:

My Dentist Alderley Number 1
A high level of skill to be able to execute the crown well & to give the patient a lifetime with that crown, or at least 10 years, as the research shows.
My Dentist Alderley Number 2
It involves a longer time period. Typically, our appointments are about an hour and a half to 2 hours, hence a lot more chair time.

Dental crowns involve materials that are a little bit more costly. Crowns are made from ceramic or gold, and they often involve a third party (the laboratory) that fabricates these crowns.

The one thing to bear in mind is that when My Dentist has diagnosed you as needing a crown, they are choosing an option that is long-lasting, strong, and will actually save you money in the long run.

Many patients ask, “What if I just replaced that filling with another one?” If we have suggested a crown it’s most probable that that tooth is highly broken down, we are concerned that it might not be restorable in the future, and we see the crown as the last resort.

However, when we do our crowns at My Dentist, we do them well, and hence, we expect that in the time that you have the crown, you would have saved the multitude of costs that would have arisen from multiple fillings and their continuous replacement. And also you would have gotten long service out of a very strong tooth.

I have been coming to the practice for 12 years and recommend them highly. Very high standard of dental work 100% of the time. I drive 40 minutes from where I live to see them as I would never go anywhere else.
