We get lots of questions about CEREC crowns: what do they really cost, and do the savings justify the expense?
Allow us to break it down for you:
Cost of CEREC machine:$100,000 on a 5 year (60 month) lease, 5% interest = $1900 month
- Average amount of units produced per month: 40 /$1900 = $50/unit
- Average cost of material for CEREC unit = $20/unit
- Average time to produce a unit =20 min (this takes in to account no learning curve)
- Average dentist hourly rate* $342 or $114/unit for 20 mins of your time.
$47.50 + $20 + $114 = $181.50
Total base cost of producing 1 CERECunit = $181.50
If $181.50 seems high to you—we agree. And we offer a solution!
