Dental Crown Cost

At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney in Charlotte, NC, Drs. John M. Pinnix IV and George A. Betancourt provide functional, lifelike crowns.

The cost of a dental crown at our practice can vary from about $1,500 to $2,000 based on a number of factors.

Curious about the individual factors that will determine the cost of your dental crown?

Dental Crown Cost Factors

Porcelain, silver, and gold crowns

Dental Crown Materials

Our dentists can use several different types of crowns to protect or replace your teeth. There are zirconia crowns, all-porcelain crowns, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, and even gold crowns. Because of their durability and natural appearance, our doctors usually prefer to use porcelain crowns, which can cost more than crowns made of metal or other materials.

CEREC® machine

Production Method

At our office in Charlotte, NC, we are proud to feature an advanced CEREC® machine that allows us to precisely craft custom crowns out of high-end porcelain in just one appointment. Patients who choose this method can save money because they do not have to cover the costs of an outside dental lab.

Number of Crowns

Obviously, the number of dental crowns you require will greatly affect the cost of your treatment. Covering a single tooth is much less expensive than needing restorations for multiple teeth. If several teeth require treatment, you may still be able to save money by combining multiple restorative treatments together in a full mouth reconstruction.

Root canal infection

Associated Treatments

Before a tooth can receive a dental crown, it usually requires some degree of preparation. That might involve simple x-rays, or the tooth may need a root canal. Preparatory treatments will increase the overall cost of your dental care. Furthermore, if you are replacing a lost tooth with a dental implant, your treatment costs will be higher.

The only way to know for sure what treatment with dental crowns will cost you is to visit our office in Charlotte, NC, for a consultation. Our dentists will examine your teeth and ask about your dental goals, and then our friendly team will be able to help you figure out your available insurance benefits

Tony's Story

In his dental crowns testimonial, Tony describes how crowns provided by Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney gave him confidence. Prior to treatment, he was often worried that his crowns would fall off during meetings or presentations at work. Now, he feels more confident smiling and laughing.

Dental Crowns and Dental Insurance

Most dental insurance plans will cover at least part of the cost of a dental crown as long as it is considered to be medically necessary. If you are choosing a crown for purely cosmetic reasons, insurance will not cover your treatment costs.

Our practice accepts all forms of insurance and will work with you to maximize your benefits. To find out if your insurance covers the cost of crowns, send us a message or give us a call today.

...Dr. Pinnix is so easy to talk to and explains any issues in a way that is easy to understand. I recently had to have a partial crown to repair a broken tooth and was very impressed with the technology used in their office to create the crown in just a matter of a few minutes! I would highly recommend Dr. Pinnix and his staff.

Dr Betancourt and his team are great! Love the fact that they can 3D print a crown out as you wait, so no need for a temporary and a second appt. my husband decided to give them a try after listening to me say how much I liked Dr Betancourt and After his first appt he told me he was so glad he went. Just a great overall experience!
