How Much Does a Dental Crown Cost?

A dental crown is a restoration that will completely cap a tooth or an implant.  This crown is necessary when a cavity threatens the entire tooth or if the tooth is affected by a crack, chip or some sort of cosmetic damage.

Using a form or dental cement, the cement is bonded to the actual tooth forming a “crown.”  This crown is going to prevent the cavity from spreading and improve the strength of the tooth.  The cost of a dental crown will depend on the dentist, the tooth, complexity of the situation and geographical location.

    Approximately $5000!!!! If I had known the total cost before I started, I would have never done it. I did plenty of research and talked to numerous people whom have had single tooth implants. I figured I would pay no more than $3000. I can’t imagine how anybody could ever afford an entire mouthful. It should not cost so much money to take care of a mouth!

    Was it worth it? Yes
