Where to Find Affordable Dental Care for Crowns: Tips and Recommendations

Wednesday, May. 1st 2024 9:11 AM

I do not have dental insurance, and I need two dental crowns. My dentist also told me that I should have a small cavity filled before it became a more significant issue. I just do not have the money needed. My dentist quoted me $1500.00 for two crowns and fillings. Where can I get the necessary dental work for half that cost? Because that is about all the extra money I have right now to spend on my teeth care.

Reply: Here are a few options to think about.

1) You can buy dental insurance before starting any dental work. Dental insurance will help reduce the cost of dental care. Just ensure there are no waiting periods for the services you need. 

2) You can shop out your dentist and see if there are dentists in your area that would be more affordable.

3) You can see about going to a dental school if there are any in your area. Dental schools would be much more affordable, but they may have restrictions, so calling and confirming their process is essential. 

4) Ask your dentist if he offers a payment plan option so you can make payments. Or see if other dentists provide payment plans. 

5) Look into dental discount plans and see if dental providers in your area accept them. You may not save 50% for the services you need, but discount plans are a low-cost option, and they will help reduce your dental costs, hopefully making them more affordable for you.

6) Looking into seeing if you have any dental clinic near you. Dental clinics are typically more affordable and charge based on your ability to pay.
