Types of Dental Crowns


There are a number of different dental treatments available for people across Dublin, California. One option is to have dental crowns. A crown is a sort of cap that will fully cover a real tooth. It can be made from a number of different materials, which is something we will discuss. The crown is fixed to your tooth, making it a great solution if you have teeth that have been damaged, decayed, or broken, or you just want to enhance the appearance of your teeth. Read on to discover more about dental crowns and please do not hesitate to give us a call if you would like to book a consultation.


There are five different types of dental crowns that are used in dentistry today. We are going to take you through each one so you can get a better understanding of their characteristics and the price. Please note that the price is only a rough estimate and it can differ based on location, dentist experience, and much more.

  1. Gold crowns - Firstly, we have gold crowns, we tend to range in price from about $600 to $2500. These tend to be used for the back of the teeth, rather than the front, although that is possible. Gold requires less of the tooth’s natural structure to be removed. It is a strong and durable choice.
  2. E-max crowns - The price for these crowns ranges from $800 to $3000. They are created using lithium disilicate, which is thin and light. They can also be very strong and durable.
  3. Zirconia crowns - Zirconia is a material that is relatively new in terms of dental use. However, it is seen as a good choice because it combines the look of porcelain crowns with the durability and strength of the metal. The price for these crowns ranges from $800 to $3000.
  4. Porcelain crowns - Again, you can expect the price to be anywhere from $800 to $3000. These crowns are used on the front of the teeth, creating a much more natural look. They match the color, size, and shape of the surrounding teeth. No metal is used, making these crowns biocompatible.
  5. Porcelain fused to metal - A cheaper solution, with prices ranging from $500 to $1500, these crowns provide a porcelain coat to enhance the aesthetics while the structure is metal. People only really tend to go for this option because it is cheaper than the former.
