The Cost Of Tooth Crowns

A crown may be recommended for tooth restoration if there is not enough of the original tooth remaining to repair decay with a filling, or if a tooth is cracked, weak, or poorly shaped. A crown is a cap that completely covers the tooth.

Crowns may be made from:

  • Metal
  • Ceramic
  • Composite
  • Porcelain

Depending on the material used and complexity of the procedure, costs typically range between $1100 and $2000.
