The most important question is, “Who makes the actual crown?” Did you know… Dental crowns are not made by your dentists. They are actually made by dental technicians who do their craft in their own laboratory. In order for the dental crown to look and feel natural in a mouth, as well as functioned to withstand the constant force of the bite, it is an art form combined with precise engineering.
A painting that is created by famous artist will cost a lot more than a painting made by an average Joe with minimal experience. So the experience dental technician and the quality of the dental lab can impact the cost of the crown.
In addition to that, some crowns are made with porcelain on the outside and metal on the inside. and sometimes to protect the back tooth a gold crown may still be the best way to go. And you know what, gold does cost a more than porcelain.
Now, what if the crown is to be placed on top of an implant? If you have an implant crown, then there are all these little componentry that goes inside the crown, so an implant crown will cost more than just a normal crown.
So you can see, there are so many factors in terms of the dental technician who makes the crown, the type and quality of the material that is used, and where the crown is placed that can vary the cost of a dental crown.
In terms of price, generally speaking, in Australia, a dental crown would cost anywhere between 1500-2800 dollars based on the factors that we just discussed.
