Burgers and Crowns

Crowns abound at Burger King, but this is not a promotional post. Crowns also abound in our dental office, which connection you've likely already made. But burgers? How does that fit into the dental realm?

Consider for a moment that you are in the mood for a hamburger. You have several options available to you. If you went to Burger King and asked for a cheeseburger you would get this:
This would set you back about $1 here in Lakewood, Washington.

If you went to Red Robin and asked for a cheeseburger, you would get this:
This would cost $8.99 (and comes with unlimited fries). Would you complain that it costs more, or would you accept the fact that the higher price is for an item of better quality and would satisfy you longer? Of course this is an extreme comparison to make a point. The fact is, you get what you pay for when it comes to burgers...and teeth.

Recently a patient mentioned that he could get a crown elsewhere for less money than at our office. Just as not all hamburgers are created equally, not all crowns are created equally. At Dental Health Associates, we have high standards of quality in the care we provide and the materials we use. We never compromise in the materials, lab, or workmanship of the crown just so we can offer a lower price (though we do try to keep our prices low)! This enables us to provide excellent fit, comfort, and longevity of crowns for our patients.

Unfortunately that means that we can't charge Burger King prices for the work we perform. We understand that with the current state of the economy many of our patients are on tight budgets or a fixed income. We provide different treatment options that fall within any budget, and offer financing when needed. To schedule an appointment, give us a call or schedule an appointment online so we can keep your smile looking its best!
