Default What is going rate for a dental crown?

Have been quoted €1000 by my dentist in Dublin for a crown on a top back molar and wondering if I will gain anything by shopping around or is this just the going rate. I'm not interested in going to Eastern Europe for it as I'd be wary of quality. Might consider the North.

Thanks!

I'm going to this crowd, they list their fees. Depending on whether you need a post or not it can cost between 620 and 900 Euros.

Are you saying you got the two done for €950. Crikey - I paid that for just the root canal and now he wants another €1000 for the crown. Me thinks I should shop around then, maybe look down the country!

Am going up north next month for a crown £200. Definitely worth a look across the border.

Mrs Romulan went to a dentist near Newry, around STG£350 if I recall correctly.

PM me if you want the details.

Yes. I paid silly money in the past for two root canals/crowns in Dublin.
Even if there's a price list it's worth asking 'What can you do them for?'

Well, after everyone at work was at me to shop around for a better price, I contacted three very heavily recommended (by boards.ie members) dentists in Newry and one came back and for all the work I need done it would be half price!!!

I'm wondering how variable is the quality of a crown from dentist to dentist though. Is there a chance in going to an "unknown" dentist that you might end up going back to your own dentist for an expensive repair job?

Paid €1000 for a crown in Galway last year.

Have since changed dentists.
