cost of dental crown kitsilano

Currently, the cost of a crown at our office is around $1100, which includes a ‘foundation filling’ – called a build-up which goes under the crown.  In most cases, we use a ‘porcelain fused to metal crown’ – meaning part of the crown is made of metal with the esthetic(visible parts) in white ceramic.  The most durable crown is made out of an alloy which includes gold and is cheaper.  For those high esthetic zone areas, an all ceramic crown can be made(if suitable) also at a cheaper price.  Crowns start at about $800 for non-esthetic all metal and go up to $1100 for a combination of metal and porcelain.  We at Accord Dental will give you the information to help select the best dental care options that suit your needs.

silver fillings

Over time, amalgam fillings tend to distort, corrode, and change shape.  This causes the tooth to become grey as the metal rusts: leaching into the tooth.  During this time, the amalgam will expand and cause fracture lines, that if go untreated, will cause the tooth to break.  Why wait for these fillings to crack your tooth?  Changing them out before they cause this type of damage will be less costly to saving the tooth in the future.  A simple filling change costs a few hundred dollars, compared to the cost of a crown(~$1100) and even worse – an implant(~$5000) should tooth loss occur.

why dental xray vancouver

Why do I need X-rays?

Dental X-rays are extremely valuable for helping to detect oral diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissues. An X-ray exam may reveal small cavities that can’t be seen by a visual exam, infections in the bone, abscesses, cysts, developmental abnormalities, such as extra or impacted teeth and some types of tumors. Just because such diseases, including early tooth decay, can’t be seen by a visual exam does not mean that treatment isn’t required.

Is it safe to have dental X-rays?

Yes. Numerous precautions and advances in X-ray equipment help protect patients from receiving unnecessary radiation. The amount of radiation received from a dental exam is extremely small compared to other naturally occurring sources of radiation, including minerals in the soil, radon, and cosmic radiation from outer space. A full-mouth series of films, using state-of-the-art technology, will deliver an effective dose that is equivalent to about 19 days of exposure to naturally occurring environmental radiation.

How often are they necessary?

This depends upon the patients individual health needs. If you are a new patient, the dentist may recommend X-rays to determine the current status of your mouth and to check for hidden problems. The need for radiographs varies according to your age, risk for disease, and your past dental history.

Children may need X-rays more often than adults because their teeth and jaws are still developing and they are more prone to tooth decay. X-rays help the dentist discover developmental problems as early as possible so preventative or treatment measures can be started.
