Tooth Crown Cost

Dental Crowns are a restorative solution to protect and preserve the teeth whilst encouraging normal functions such as aesthetics and chewing and biting. This is basically a cap that is placed over a tooth that has been damaged due to several reasons such as extensive tooth decay, significant tooth fractures, and root canal therapy.

Tooth Crown CostAfter such dental work that required some amount of tooth reduction, the tooth is more prone to breakage.

To prevent the need to extract the tooth, a tooth crown is placed as a helmet, protecting the tooth structure that is left and allowing the patient to comfortably chew and use the tooth for its purpose.

This is especially important for molars which receive great forces during eating.

While for teeth visible when you smile, dental crowns Parramatta are made as natural looking as possible, perfectly mimicking the appearance and feel of the rest of your tooth to enhance aesthetics.

We understand the importance of tooth crowns, but how much does a crown cost?

Depending on several factors such as the location of the involved tooth in the mouth, amount of tooth reduction, patient’s specifications and budget, and the dentist’s treatment plan, the material for dental crown Parramatta may vary.

  • Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns – $1600 per tooth

This is one of the most common materials used for dental crown Parramatta as this combines the excellent aesthetic qualities of porcelain and the durability of the metal underneath. However, with two materials composing this crown, more tooth reduction is required therefore preserving the natural tooth is not made as much of a priority. 

  • Gold Crowns

Gold is considered the ideal and most biocompatible material in the mouth and presents with excellent strength, therefore it shouldn’t be a problem should the material be placed in molars. However, the colour contributes to it being less aesthetic therefore is not often selected as a material nowadays.

As for the price of a gold crown, it depends on the current value of gold.

Crown Parramatta

Crown ParramattaIf you recently had your tooth fractured, maybe had that long-standing, deep cavity finally removed, or a root canal treatment, then you probably would need to have a dental crown procedure done after.

Dental Crowns are basically caps or helmets placed over the remaining tooth structure to help preserve and save the tooth, eliminating the need for tooth extraction.

As conscious dentists, saving the natural tooth is always the priority so dental crowns Parramatta are made to protect whatever is left of the tooth.

This receives the forces applied onto the tooth during dental functions such as chewing and biting so the tooth does not fracture.

There are several materials nowadays for dental crown Parramatta and each has its own suitability depending on several factors. Types of tooth crowns include Porcelain Fused to Metal, Emax, Zirconia, and Gold Alloy Crowns.

To give you an idea, here are the factors that you and your dentist Sydney should consider as you choose the tooth crown for you.

Location of the Tooth in the Mouth

Each tooth has a different function depending on when it is located in the mouth. Front teeth are made to be the most aesthetically pleasing as they are seen when you smile.

It is also made for biting food. Meanwhile, back teeth like molars are for chewing food so they need to be the strongest teeth.

By this logic, ceramic crowns are most suitable for front teeth and the stronger and more durable gold and porcelain fused to metal crowns are the best choices for molars.

Amount of Tooth Reduction

Certain types of crowns require more tooth shaving to allow the tooth to receive the bulk of the material such as the porcelain fused to metal crowns.

However, if you want to preserve more of the tooth structure especially if there is no substantial damage to it, opt for Zirconia crowns as this material can be made thinly, so no excessive tooth structure will have to be shaved off.

Patient’s Oral Hygiene

Dental crown Parramatta can be difficult to maintain especially because the tooth inside of the crown can decay if proper oral hygiene is not committed to. Therefore, to ensure the longevity of whatever dental crown you choose, you must pay regular visits to your Parramatta dentist so they can check the condition of the crown.

Otherwise, consider an adjustment to better oral hygiene practices first before committing to dental crowns.

Patient’s Expectations and Budget

With the array of dental crown selections at Parramatta Dentistry, you will be able to find which is best for you and your budget. Our dentists will also help you with understanding your goals and delivering what you expect out of the treatment.

Choosing your Dental Crown

Tooth crownDental Crowns are an investment for a better and healthier smile. When you have fractured teeth, extensive tooth decay, or had root canal treatment done, a tooth crown is likely to be placed after the involved tooth.

Dental crown Parramatta acts like a helmet in that it is placed over a damaged tooth to protect and help preserve it instead of opting for tooth extraction.

Depending on factors such as tooth placement in the mouth, patient’s expectations and goals, amount of tooth reduction, among other things, our dental professionals will be glad to walk you through our extensive selections for dental crowns so you can find the right one for you.

Emax Crowns

This is a modern dental crown composed of ceramic material and its main advantages are its superior aesthetic properties and the fact that our clinic can make an Emax crown for you in just one appointment. Due to CAD/CAM technology readily available in our treatment room, our skilled dentists can do tooth reduction and immediately proceed with 3D imaging of your tooth for fabrication of the crown.

This is highly recommended for patients who would like their treatment time to be greatly reduced, especially those who have a busy lifestyle.

Zirconia Crowns

This is also a full ceramic crown with an excellent natural appearance. As this can be made thin, this is the recommended material of choice for patients with an involved tooth that has almost no damage to preserve most of the natural tooth structure.

However, due to the thin material, it is not advised to be placed in a tooth that will need to withstand heavy biting forces such as molars as this may fracture during stress.

Porcelain Fused to Metal

The aesthetic properties of the porcelain shell and the incredible durability and strength of the metal base is the main benefit of porcelain fused to metal crowns.

However, with the two materials over each other, this crown will need a significant amount of tooth to be removed for it to fit perfectly.

Gold Crowns

Gold is ideal material and is considered to be the most biocompatible so you will have no problems with irritation to the gums and other soft tissues of the mouth. This also has excellent strength at par with the natural tooth so this is mostly used for molar dental crowns Parramatta.

However, the colour of this crown is its main disadvantage as it is unsightly when placed among natural teeth.

Types of Dental Crowns at Parramatta Dentistry and Its Cost

  • Emax Crown – $1,450
    • Emax crown is made from lithium disilicate material which is also known as ceramic crown.

  • Zirconia Crown – $1,600
    • Another form of all ceramic crown is zirconia crown. Made out of a white powdered metal oxide material it has similar properties to titanium. Making zirconia crown extremely durable and strong an ideal dental candidate for the back molars where it can withstand most dental functions. Being such a strong material the crown can be produced thinner than most crowns, meaning less preparation on the tooth. However due to the strength provided in zirconia crowns a compromise of aesthetic property is made. The translucency is not as adequate and provides a more darker undertone.

  • Porcelain Fused Metal Crown – $1,600
    • A strong but not as aesthetically durably crown is the porcelain fused metal crown. It combines the porcelain material which gets layered on top of a metal coping to achieve the same tooth shade and anatomy. Porcelain fused metal crowns have slowly declined in preferences amongst dentists in Australia as new cutting edge technology on ceramic material crown is replacing the market with the same strength and better aesthetic qualities. One of the biggest drawbacks is the porcelain material that is fused on top tends to chip and crack over the course of time. This allows the metal coping to appear and makes the crown less aesthetic pleasing. Also the fused materials of porcelain and metal, makes the crown thicker and bulkier which in terms means more tooth structure is compromised to accommodate the thickness.

  • Gold Crown
    • The tooth crown cost for a gold crown varies and is influenced by the weight of the crown. Gold alloy is an extremely good material for dental crowns as it is strong and adaptable. This makes the crown tremendously resilient yet it has the component that erodes to a similar rate as a tooth. The only downfall for gold crown is the aesthetic where it does not resemble any shade of teeth. However it is still a popular choice for patients and dentists due to its impressive qualities.

Root Canal Cost Sydney

What is Root Canal Therapy?

The pulp is the soft tissue of the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels that provides oxygen and nutrients to the tooth. If the pulp becomes infected due to dental trauma, decay or other reasons the patient will experience severe pain and needs to be addressed quickly.

Medicated paste is applied to help disinfect the area and sealed off with a temporary filling.

The second part of the procedure is usually a week apart and generally the patient’s tooth should not feel any pain or discomfort. Using the same opening, the dentist will continue removing the pulp from the canal and using a strong disinfectant to flush out any infection. X-rays are to be taken again to ensure that nerves of the roots are properly removed. If the patient is not experiencing any pain or discomfort the dentist can start on the next procedure. However if there is any soreness, the dentist will re-medicate the tooth and ask to come back a week later to start the next step.

The third part of root canal therapy is to fill and seal the tooth with gutta percha, which is a rubber like material to prevent bacteria from re-entering the tooth. X-rays are used to help measure the length of the root so that the gutta percha will fit snugly in the root canals. The opening will then be restored with a permanent filling to ensure that the tooth can function as a normal tooth again.
