Metal vs Composite/ Porcelain: Think long term!

In the past, metal fillings have been the only option available when you needed a crown. Even now, you may encounter that many places offer amalgam fillings, or commonly known as metal fillings. The problem with this is that you would be left with a shiny, inauthentic looking tooth blatantly shining its existence to your friends, family and coworkers!
Rest assured, we are here to offer you an aesthetic, natural material- porcelain/ composite!

These porcelain/ composite materials are tooth-coloured and durable. It will offer you a natural smile that you couldn’t fully have with your metal fillings!
Here at ABC Dental, we can replace your existing metal fillings with this appealing option in just one single visit.

But you might ask, “Why porcelain or composite if they have the same function as a metal filling?”. The benefits of composite fillings aren’t just ‘better aesthetics!’.

The benefits of replacing metal fillings are:
No Gum Line Discolouration: gum line discolouration is a common allergic reaction caused by metal fillings. With composite or porcelain, you won’t have to suffer these risks.
No Leakages: Metal fillings can deteriorate over time. In contrast, these tooth-colured fillings won’t break down, meaning you won’t have to return to the dentist for additional repairs.

Now, the Why at ABC Dental?

At ABC Dental, we offer a number of benefits when it comes to replacing metal fillings.

Crown Pricing - What should I be expecting?
Dental fees vary between clinics. This is the same for crowns. Fees are dependent on a range of factors. From our own research, Sydney metro prices range between $1100 - $2200.When thinking about the price of a crown, its helpful to remember that a crown on average, is expected to last many years. Clinical studies show that the average life service of a crown is observed to be around 10 years. It is more helpful to express the fee for a crown in terms of the cost per year, rather than a lump sum. In this regard, ABC crowns would be on average $110/year (same week crowns), or $175/ year (same day crowns).Another factor in price consideration is health fund coverage. For those that have private health insurance with major dental cover, a portion of the fee will be paid by your health fund. Typically, most health funds have enough major dental coverage for 1 crown per year. The price displayed above does not include health fund coverage. For example, if the health fund covers $800, and you opted for Same Week Crowns ($1100), then what you would pay is $300 for the crown treatment. This is also known as the gap payment.
We also accept afterpay, zipmoney and supercare payments.For more information click: https://www.abc-dental.com.au/when-do-i-need-a-crown
