Why We Don’t Believe All Crowns Are Equal

Crown manufacture is an intricate and time-consuming process. A skilfully crafted crown will replicate all the details of nature, minimise decay, and preserve your tooth. Exceptional craftsmanship is reflected in the fee. Isn’t one crown the same as another?

Dentistry is a competitive industry. 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.

I 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.

I want my patients to have the same crowns I would choose for myself. I believe I offer quality craftsmanship at an affordable price.
