Much before you make up your mind, here’s what you need to know about Dental Crowns.
The tooth crown cost primarily depends on the material used and the type of crown you would choose.
In other words, you can choose from multiple options available.
So the first step always is to choose what’s best for you.
For a basic understanding, primarily, 5 factors determine the choice of a Tooth Crown:
1) Which tooth needs the crown? Is it a front tooth or a back one?
The front teeth display your personality.
In such a case, we recommend an all-ceramic or metal-free crown.
They are always aesthetically pleasing.
And if you have parafunctional habits, the crown may chip or break.
Hence we recommend a robust crown variant.
2) The complexity of the treatment
3) The size of the restoration/filling
4) The lab in which the crown is fabricated
Almost every dental lab claims to be making every kind of tooth crown.
However, only a few labs in India make long-lasting, trouble-free crowns.
Usually, the Dentist knows which labs are best in what kind of crowns. It is always recommended to rely on your Dentist for the best labs.
5) The expertise of the Dental Practitioner
Among all, this is the most important aspect.
By looking at your tooth, a Dentist would guide you better on which kind of crowns to go for.
It is important to note that not every costly crown is long-lasting. Likewise, not every cheaper version of the crown will be long-lasting.
The Dentist would always know what’s best for you.
Based on the recommendations, you can always choose which crown to go for, and hence the cost of the tooth crown.
Before you conclude the choice of the Tooth Crown and its cost, it is essential to understand what is a Tooth Crown and how it can protect your tooth. Just so that it helps you choose the best one for you.
As the name suggests, a Tooth Crown is simply a cap covering the tooth.
First, it restores a tooth to its function.
Second, it helps in the cosmetic correction of certain teeth so that your smile & personality are natural and better.
In technical terms, a Tooth Crown is a fixed treatment method to restore the function and appearance of a damaged tooth and can make the tooth stronger.
It is cemented onto the tooth and does not need to be taken out to clean.
8 Reasons why you would need a Tooth Crown at all:
1. Protect a weak tooth caused by either a large cavity or decay.
2. To restore a broken or worn down tooth.
3. Support a tooth which has a large filling.
4. Hold a Dental Bridge.
5. Cover a Dental Implant.
6. Correct any mal-aligned tooth.
7. Cosmetic modification, as required for your tooth.
8. To cover Root Canal treated tooth.
Wide varieties of Tooth Crowns are available nowadays. It makes the choice difficult.
But you can bucket them into just 4 types of Tooth Crowns:
1) All-Ceramic (Metal-free) / Zirconia Crowns:
Metal-free Tooth Crowns are stunning crowns with superior aesthetics.
They look so natural that it becomes difficult to distinguish between a crown and a tooth.
Metal-free crowns mimic the colour and lustre of the natural tooth and look lifelike because they don’t contain metal.
These crowns produce amazingly lifelike results unmatched by any other type of crown.
These are durable, high-strength, and can last very long.
Many of our patients opt for Metal-free Tooth Crowns.
All-ceramic Tooth Crown cost range starts from INR 12,000 & upwards, with a 5 to 20 years warranty.
In the true sense, the cost of Tooth Crowns, in this case, seems less important than the life it brings to your natural tooth.
Furthermore, they are biocompatible and are an excellent option if you are allergic to metal.
2) Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns (or PFM):
These Tooth Crowns are made of both porcelain and metal.
PFM Tooth Crowns have metal inside and tooth-coloured porcelain outside. The top coating of the crown is tooth-coloured porcelain supported by a metal framework inside.
Furthermore, they have pleasing aesthetics and high strength, which can last several years and are reasonably priced.
But PFM crowns are not as natural or lifelike as metal-free crowns.
To explain it further, they can cast a black hue/shadow over time between the crown and the tooth because of the metal inside.
For this reason, these Tooth Crowns are best suited for back teeth.
PFM Tooth Crown costs range from INR 8,000 & upwards, with a 5 to 15-year warranty.
3) Metal Crowns:
These Tooth Crowns are made of biocompatible metals like nickel and chromium.
The Metal Tooth Crowns have tremendous strength and can last long without chipping or breaking.
Their only big disadvantage is the metallic colour.
Because of its metallic colour, we recommend them for the back teeth.
These crowns are not commonly used these days.
The Metal Tooth Crowns usually cost approx. INR 4,000.
4) Gold Crowns:
Gold Tooth Crowns have been used in dentistry for more than 4000 years.
Some metals are combined with gold to increase their strength. Therefore, they don’t break or chip. They are durable and can last for many years.
The cost of such Gold Tooth Crowns depends primarily on the prevailing rate of Gold.
Benefits of Gold Tooth Crowns:
a) High Durability:
Gold is highly durable, and gold tooth crowns can handle the pressures of chewing and biting exceptionally well.
They are less prone to chipping or breaking compared to some other materials.
Gold is a biocompatible material generally well-tolerated by the body.
Gold tooth crowns are less likely to cause allergic reactions or sensitivities, making them suitable for you if you have metal allergies.
c) Minimal Wear on Opposing Teeth:
Gold is a softer material than natural teeth, which can benefit teeth that come into contact with the crown.
This characteristic can reduce wear on your opposing teeth over time.
The downside of Gold Tooth Crowns:
a) Aesthetic Concern:
Many people dislike the appearance of gold tooth crowns.
They are noticeable, so you may find them less aesthetically pleasing, especially when placed in visible areas of the mouth.
b) High Cost:
Gold is a precious metal, so gold tooth crowns are more expensive than crowns made from other materials.
The cost of gold tooth crowns can be a significant factor for you. The alternative options may be more cost-effective.
c) Rare Allergic Reactions:
While gold is generally well-tolerated, allergic reactions are possible in rare cases.
It’s crucial to discuss any metal allergies or sensitivities with your dentist before choosing a gold tooth crown.
Gold is a good conductor of heat and cold.
If you go for it, you may experience increased sensitivity to temperature changes.
