When you require a crown, the price and variety of dental crowns come to mind right away. This is due to the wide variety of crown types available today, which vary according to the materials, price, processes, and needs of the patients.
This is definitely the most popular type of crown used nowadays. They are entirely made of porcelain material.
Some ADVANTAGES are:
However, the main DISADVANTAGES of porcelain crowns are:
Zirconium is a relatively new material that combines the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain crowns. High translucent zirconia and layered zirconia crowns have become a more popular choice lately.
The main ADVANTAGES of zirconia crowns are:
The main DISADVANTAGES of Zirconia Crowns include:
The newest type of crown in dentistry today is known as E -Max. It is a type of all-ceramic crown made of lithium disilicate (which is also light and thin).
The main ADVANTAGES of E-max crowns are:
The main DISADVANTAGES of E-Max Crowns include:
Porcelain fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are another widely used type of dental crowns. They provide both strength (due to their metal structure) and aesthetics (due to the porcelain coat that covers the cap).
The main ADVANTAGES of PFM crowns are:
However, the DISADVANTAGES of PFMs include:
Gold crowns are in fact a combination of copper and other metals, such as nickel or chromium. The main advantage of gold crowns is their strength and durability.
For back restorations -and depending on each patient’s needs- some dentists may suggest a gold crown as the preferred option. However, gold crowns don’t make a very popular choice today due to their color and aesthetics.
Main ADVANTAGES of gold crowns:
Main DISADVANTAGES of gold crowns:
Resin crowns are constructed from composite material which is similar to the one used for normal color fillings.
Composite resin crowns are less expensive than other crown types and they look very natural, however, they undergo wear and tear with time and are vulnerable to fractures.
They are the most affordable options for crowning a tooth. They should be treated as a short term temporary or provisionary crown until a better, more durable and stronger crown is financially feasible.
Nowadays there is usually a better choice for tooth restoration than a resin crown.
Now that you have an idea of the different options for dental crowns, you surely want to know the cost of the different types of crowns.
Well, this will vary depending on the material used and the preparation required. For example, all porcelain crowns are in general more costly than metal ones.
Moreover, in some instances a core build-up is required to help protect the integrity of the tooth before a crown can be placed.
Other times, dentists need to perform a gingivectomy or minor gum surgery, procedure in which part of the gums are cut away in the mouth to ensure better aesthetics or prognosis of the tooth or teeth.
In the worst case scenario, you might also need a root canal, in which case the overall cost of the procedure could easily double.
Depending on the type of crown, the material used, the price of a dental crown in Melbourne can range from $1,200 to $2,500 per tooth for the Porcelain type and gold gold. Composite Crown is the most affordable and you would be looking from $500 per tooth
The exact cost, however, will vary based on your particular circumstances, the number of teeth you’re receiving dental crowns for, and a number of other variables.
