Many factors affect the cost of dental crowns in San Francisco

Cost of Dental Crowns from San Francisco dentist

A common, and understandable, concern for dental patients is the cost of treatment. They would like to know what the potential price might be before visiting the dental office. Unfortunately, there are too many variables involved to get an accurate estimate without visiting a dentist. The location of the patient and doctor is just one factor affecting the cost. Dental crowns in San Francisco CA are not going to cost the same as they would in another city or state. Some of the factors that also affect cost are:

  • The training and experience of the dentist – A doctor fresh out of dental school may not charge as much as one with extensive advanced education. However, they also may not have the skills that are developed through experience.
  • Insurance – If the patient has dental insurance, it may reduce the cost to the patient if the crown is not for cosmetic purposes. Insurance varies dramatically, and the percentage of cost that will be covered depends on the insurance company and the patient’s specific policy.
  • Condition of the tooth – If the tooth requires minimal preparation the cost will be lower than it would be for a tooth that is too badly damaged to support a crown. In some cases, the dentist has to rebuild some missing tooth structure in order to place the crown.
  • Material – Crowns are made of many different materials:
    • Stainless steel
    • Porcelain fused to non-precious metal
    • Porcelain fused to precious metal
    • Gold
    • Pure porcelain

The type material agreed upon by the dentist and patient affects the total cost. The doctor may make a recommendation for a specific type that will make a better fitting, better looking or more durable restoration. An investment in dental care is an investment in oral and overall health as well as appearance. Bargain dental care is usually cheap for a reason, typically, the provider is inexperienced, the materials are sub-par, or a discount high-volume dental lab created the restoration. Rather than hunting for a bargain, patients are well served to seek value. Patients in San Francisco who visit Dr. Leo Arellano and his talented team are rewarded with quality dental care, a reasonable price, a healthy mouth, and a beautiful smile. Call 415-881-4343 to schedule an appointment today.

Dr. Arellano has been my dentist since 1989 and I believe he is the best of the best! I have experienced many uncomfortable dental procedures in the past, many due to painful injections. Dr. Arellano has excellent technique in anesthetizing that results in painless injections. He truly cares about his patients and his work. His staff, especially Mei, is extraordinary and will go above and beyond to work in appointments, assist in resolving payment/insurance issues, referrals, etc. Dr. Arellano and his team have always provided excellent care and service over the years. I highly recommend him for your dental care.
