Same-day crowns offer all of the benefits of traditional crowns, with none of the hassles. You won’t need to make two appointments and you won’t need to wear a temporary restoration for weeks while you wait for your permanent crown to be fabricated. With so many benefits, you might assume that same-day crowns are more expensive than traditional crowns, but surprisingly, the cost of same-day crowns in Monmouth County is about the same.
The Cost of Same-Day Crowns in Monmouth County
A same-day crown can range from $1500 to $2500, but every patient is different and it’s difficult to offer ballpark figures without knowing the type of work you need. The best way to understand what kind of costs you should expect is to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
There are several factors at play when we talk about the costs of same-day crowns. While there are regional differences in pricing across the United States, in New Jersey, there’s not much variation from county to county. The cost of same-day crowns depends upon:
- The amount of experience a dentist has with the same-day crown process
- The location of the tooth being restored
- The size of the tooth being restored
When we say that the cost of same-day crowns is comparable to that of traditional crowns, we’re comparing them to other aesthetic tooth-colored options that restore both function and appearance to your damaged tooth. A metal crown is generally the least expensive option of all, but most patients would rather have a restoration that looks natural and blends in with the rest of their smile.
Does Insurance Cover Same-Day Crowns?
If your crown is needed to restore function and strength to a damaged tooth or to protect a tooth after a root canal, insurance will usually cover at least part of the cost, whether you choose a same-day crown or a traditional crown.
Dental insurance coverage can vary a great deal from plan to plan; you may be lucky enough to have a plan that covers the full cost of the procedure, but most policies will have you paying some expenses out-of-pocket. It’s a good idea to contact your dental insurance provider to find out details about how they cover same-day crowns. During your consultation with Dr. Champagne, we can provide you with an estimate of your out-of-pocket costs as well. Our billing coordinator is happy to sit down with you to explain your benefits—we understand how confusing dental insurance plans can be!
