Much before you make up your mind, here’s what you need to know:

The tooth crown cost primarily depends on the material used and the type of crown you would choose.

In other words, you can choose from multiple options available.

So the first step always is to choose what’s the best for you.

In general, the choice of a crown depends on factors like:

  • Which tooth needs a crown? – Is it the front tooth or the back one?
    • We usually recommend all-ceramic or metal-free crowns for the front teeth as they are always aesthetically pleasing.
  • And if you have parafunctional habits, the crown may chip or break, hence we recommend a stronger crown variant.
  • And the other factors could be:
    • The technical difficulties in your case
    • The size of the restoration/filling

The expertise of the Dental practitioner and the lab in which the crown is fabricated is equally essential, but that’s a considered aspect when you get yourself treated at a reputable dental clinic.

So before you can choose a Crown and estimate the cost of it, you need to understand what it is, how it can protect your tooth, and therefore the quality you should prefer.

As the name suggests, a Crown is simply a cap covering the tooth. It helps to make you look and feel better.

Firstly, it restores a tooth to its function.

Secondly, it also helps in the cosmetic correction of certain teeth so that you may look and smile better.

In technical terms, a Crown is a fixed treatment method to restore the function and appearance of a damaged tooth and can make the tooth stronger. It is cemented on the tooth and does not need to be removed like removable dentures to clean.

8 Reasons why you would need a crown at all:

1. Protect a weakened tooth caused by a large cavity or decay

2. Restore a tooth which is already broken or worn down.

3. Support a tooth which has a large filling.

4. Hold a dental bridge.

5. Cover a dental implant.

6. Correct any mal-aligned tooth.

7. Cosmetic modification.

8. Cover a tooth which is root canal treated.

Wide varieties of crowns are available nowadays.

Most importantly, there are just four types of crowns that you should know about:

1)  All-Ceramic (Metal-free) / Zirconia Crowns:

Metal-free crowns are stunning crowns with superior aesthetics.

They look so natural that it becomes difficult to distinguish between a crown and a tooth.

Metal-free crowns mimic the colour and lustre of the natural tooth and look lifelike because they don’t contain metal.

These crowns produce amazingly lifelike results unmatched by any other type of crown.

These are durable with high strength and can last very long.

For this very reason a lot of our patients opt for these crowns.

Thus, metal-free tooth crown cost becomes of less importance as the life it brings to your natural tooth is incomparable.

Besides, they are biocompatible and are an excellent option if you are allergic to metal.

Metal-free tooth crown cost range starts at – INR 10,000 & upwards, with a warranty ranging from 5 years to 20 years.

2)  Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns (or PFM):

These crowns are made of both porcelain and metal.

PFM crowns are tooth-coloured crowns which have metal inside. The top coating of the crown is the tooth-coloured porcelain supported by a metal framework inside.

They are good in terms of aesthetics, have high strength, can last for many years, and are reasonably priced.

But PFM crowns are not as natural or lifelike as metal-free crowns.

To clarify, they can cast a black hue/ shadow between the crown and the tooth because of the metal inside.

For this reason, these crowns are not best suited for front teeth.

PFM Tooth Crown costs approx. INR 6000

Tooth Crown costs (CAD-CAM) are INR 8000 & upwards, with a 5 to 15 years warranty.

3)  Metal Crowns:

These crowns are made of biocompatible metals like nickel and chromium.

Therefore, metal crowns have tremendous strength and can last long without chipping or breaking.

Their most significant disadvantage is the metallic colour and, therefore, only used for back teeth.

However, these crowns are not commonly used in practice these days.

Metal Tooth Crown usually costs approx. INR 4000

4)  Gold Crowns:

Even though gold crowns have been used in dentistry for more than 4000 yrs, their most significant disadvantage is the colour, and that’s why it is not a popular choice.

Some metals are combined with Gold to increase the strength of the gold crown and reduce the tooth crown cost.

They don’t break or chip. They are durable and can last for many years.

The cost of such Gold Crowns depends primarily on the prevailing Gold rate.

Which crown is best suited for you?

Regarding capping teeth, the crown options available may completely confuse you.

It may become difficult to decide which crown is best for you. Hence, Doctor’s recommendation always helps.

With the newer innovative materials in the market, specific crowns create a more natural appearance and are equally long-lasting. But again, consult a Doctor, and you will have all the correct answers.

To summarize, the Tooth Crown Costs are as follows:

Metal-Free/All-Ceramic Crowns in the range of about INR 10,000 and upwards (with a warranty of about 5 years to 20 years)

Porcelain fused to Metal (PFM) ranges around INR 6000

PFM (CAD-CAM) are in the range of approx INR 8000 & upwards (with a warranty of about 5 years to 10 years)

And Metal Crowns are approx INR 4000.

In the end, the Gold Crowns primarily depend on the prevailing rate of Gold.

Can a crown be made for your missing tooth?

It is not recommended.

If you want a permanent solution to your missing tooth, then a Dental Implant or a Dental Bridge is the best choice.

What should you know about a Dental Bridge?

Dental Bridges bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

A bridge primarily consists of crowns on your natural teeth with one or more false teeth to replace your missing tooth/teeth in between.

Hence, a natural tooth or implant is used as an anchor to support the bridge.

They are solid and reliable and look like your natural teeth.

It is a fixed treatment method and like removable dentures does not have to be taken out to clean.

Why would you need a Dental Bridge?

Here are 6 reasons why you may need a Dental Bridge:

  1. Fill a gap created by one or more missing teeth.
  2. To eat your food properly.
  3. Speak clearly and confidently
  4. Restore your smile
  5. Maintain the shape of your face.
  6. Prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting and moving out of their position.

Dental bridges can use any material from which crowns are made. Dental bridges can also use combination of materials.

The most significant disadvantage of a Dental Bridge is the reduction of natural teeth used to support the bridge.

For the crown to be mounted on the tooth structure, an adequate amount of tooth structure has to be removed.

Hence, this causes a significant loss of healthy tooth structure, weakening a tooth and reducing its longevity.

In addition, this tooth reduction may also cause sensitivity or pain and may require Root Canal Treatments.

As a result, for this reason, Dental Implants are a more suitable and lifelong solution. Read more.
