Dental Crowns Cost

A dental crown can help restore your smile and its function, but are they expensive?

Dental crowns are often covered by insurance, eliminating some or all of the financial burden.

Lake Area Dentistry offers financing to help manage the cost of treatment for patients in Lake Charles and other Louisiana communities.

How Much
Do Dental Crowns Cost?


Dental crowns at Lake Area Dentistry in Lake Charles, LA, cost an average of $1,000-$1,300 per tooth. This cost can vary based on several factors. Your dentist can offer you a custom quote during your consultation.

Same-Day Crowns Cut Down Appointments

CEREC crowns are customized to your mouth in just one visit. These metal-free dental crowns are made from high-quality porcelain and ceramic to mimic your natural tooth enamel and blend seamlessly with your teeth. We use advanced X-ray imaging technology to craft your crown to fit your smile accurately. With CEREC crowns, no temporary crown is needed, and you can leave the dentist with a new smile sooner. 

Cosmetic vs. Restorative Repair

Insurance plans will often cover part of the cost of a dental crown if it's considered a medically necessary restorative treatment. Here's how to tell if your dental crown will be covered:

Cosmetic Procedure

Cosmetic procedures involving dental crowns work to improve the aesthetics of your smile, but not the function. This can mean whitening discoloration and deep stains, fixing the size or shape of your tooth, or repairing minor cracks or chips. Cosmetic dental procedures are rarely covered by insurance. Our dentists can help you confirm if your treatment is cosmetic or not.

Restorative Treatment

Aesthetic improvement may be a positive side effect of dental crown treatment, but it isn't the goal. Restorative dental treatment is focused on improving the function of your teeth. Restorative treatments involve restoring the tooth after a root canal infection, cavity, or decay. It can also involve restoring structural damage to the tooth, like cracks or breaks that affect function. Also, replacing an old crown can be considered a restorative treatment.
