Crown manufacture is an intricate and time-consuming process. A skilfully crafted crown will replicate all the details of nature, minimize decay, and preserve your tooth. Exceptional craftsmanship is reflected in the fee. Isn’t one crown the same as another? Dental crown cost in Australia can vary hugely depending on the cost, placement, and material used on a crown.
Dentistry is a competitive industry and dental crowns in Melbourne can range in price, material, and quality. With demand for cheaper consumables, dentistry has also experienced a move in the direction of budget or economy crowns. However, these differ from the traditional, higher quality crowns in that we do not have the same control over their manufacture. This is reflected in the health and appearance of your teeth.
We understand price can influence a patient’s decision when choosing their dental provider. The advice I give my patients is that you get what you pay for. A high quality crown is likely to last a very long time. Cheaper, budget crowns have a much higher likelihood of failing in the short-term and replacement is expensive.
Affordable dental crowns in Melbourne are hard to come by, but we work with my patients to offer the best materials at the best price over the long term. It’s expensive to replace crowns, so we use materials that can be guaranteed against breakage for up to ten years.
We Can Guarantee Crowns Up to 10 Years against Breakage
Types of Crown Materials We Use:
- Porcelain (Emax and more)
- PFM (Porcelain fused to metal)
- Others (Don’t see it listed? Ask us, our lab can source most crown materials.)
