Are you interested in getting a porcelain crown and ready to take the next step in getting one? Many insurers consider crowns as a tool of functional repair for dental problems such as severe decay, erosion, or damage. With that said, insurers will typically cover all or part of the cost of a crown.
However, insurance coverage of crowns is typically limited to only providing the cheapest type of crown possible, metal crowns. If you are looking for your crowns to be made of porcelain, then your insurer will likely view your treatment as ‘cosmetic,’ meaning that you can expect to stump up all or part of the cost of your procedure.
What is the average cost of a porcelain crown?
The cost of a porcelain crown normally depends on several factors including your location, the experience and skill of your dentist, and the kind of materials being used. In a lot of cosmetic dentistry cases, quality increases the cost. Dentists with more experience, training, and skill tend to give you higher quality materials and take it into account in their fees. As stated above, your insurance may cover part of the cost, but we highly recommend that you check with our office before booking the procedure.
If porcelain crowns are not covered by your dental insurance, speak to our office to see what financing is available, or if there is an alternative treatment that is better for you.
