"All ceramic" type tooth crowns seem to be a good replacement for porcelin fused to high nobel metal crowns. Are they cheaper for the patient?

In brief: Not necessarily

The only difference between the two is the cost of the metal, which is a small fraction of the total fee.
Ask your restorative dentist what their fee would be for the different crowns and you will have your answer. All other overhead costs of making the two crowns are the same.
