Evaluating the cost of dental crowns in South Las Vegas
A dental crown is potentially one of the most cosmetic of restorative dentistry procedures. The purpose of the crown is generally to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay or breakage, leaving it strong enough for chewing and protected from further harm. While gold crowns are still valued for their strength, most patients today want crowns that blend perfectly and unnoticeably with their natural dentition. For almost every dental patient in South Las Vegas, price is also a consideration. Dr. Christopher Lim shares this information on factors that influence the cost of dental crowns.
Artistry in design: This is a critical aspect. Technically speaking, any dentist licensed in the state of Nevada is qualified to perform a crown restoration. That doesn’t mean the dentist has the naturally artistic eye and knack for precision required to design a restoration that is shaped and shaded just like a natural tooth. Dr. Lim has fostered his passion for art since early childhood. In addition, he has had more than a decade of experience in crafting dental crowns that are beautiful, functional, and long lasting.
High quality materials: Porcelain is a type of ceramic – white clay fired at an extremely high temperature until it reaches a glasslike consistency, similar to tooth enamel. Even the tiniest clay impurities readily show in the end product, marring the beauty of the dental crown. Dr. Lim uses only crowns fabricated from the highest quality dental grade materials available.
Expertise of dental lab: Just as there are many levels of quality available in dental crown materials, there are also varying levels of expertise in the ceramists who create crowns in professional dental laboratories. Dr. Lim works with some of the best in the country. They are experienced in fabricating to Dr. Lim’s exacting standards, and expertly shading crowns to match existing teeth.
Financing options: Sometimes the need for a dental crown occurs when your budget is already stretched. Dr. Lim believes that all patients should have the dental care they need and the cosmetic services they desire. He makes it affordable and possible with payment options for every budget.
Most dental insurance and flexible spending accounts cover at least a portion of the cost of a necessary crown procedure.
