Crowns are never a first choice in our Winter Park dental office. If a tooth can be fixed with a filling or a smile can be improved by whitening, we always do that first. In this regard, we try to treat teeth as conservatively as possible. However, there are instances where a tooth cannot be fixed with a filling or a smile cannot be improved with whitening or veneers alone. This would be the scenario where we might recommend an affordable crown for you.
The cost of crowns can depend on several things. Most dental insurances cover a large portion of the price of crowns and we can help you check your insurance. If you are shopping for the cheapest crown in town, you will find it and you will not like it. When it comes to dentistry, you get what you pay for. It has become poplar for dental offices to have their crowns made in China with cheaper materials for a lower price. Our crowns are made by only the best, local lab technicians. In our office, our first concern is the patient. You will find that while the price for crowns varies, our crowns are priced affordably for a quality dental treatment.
If you think that you might need a crown or would like to check to see if dental crowns are covered by your insurance, give Dr. Byrnes a call or schedule an appointment online today.
