Here’s what you need to know more before making up your mind.

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

In other words, the choice of a crown is dependant on a lot of factors like:-

  • Which tooth needs a crown, is it the front tooth or the back one.
  • For the front teeth, all-ceramic or metal-free crowns are mostly preferable, since they are much more aesthetically pleasing.
  • If you have parafunctional habits then other stronger variants of a crown are recommended, so that they do not chip or break.
  • The technical difficulties of a certain case.
  • The size of the restoration/filling.
  • Expertise, training and experience of the dental practitioner.
  • Dental laboratory, where the crown will be made.

First, let us help you in understanding what is a crown and the various reasons as to why you would need a crown.

Know more about Tooth Crown:

As the name suggests, a crown is simply a cap used for 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 cosmetic correction of certain teeth so that you may look and smile better.

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 taken out like removable dentures to clean.

Why would you need a crown?

  1. To 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 malaligned tooth.
  7. Cosmetic modification.
  8. Cover a tooth which is root canal treated.

 There are a lot of varieties of crown available nowadays.

But mainly there are 4 types of crown that you should know about.

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

Metal-free crowns are amazingly beautiful 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.

They are made in such a manner that these crowns produce amazingly lifelike results which are unmatched by any other type of crown.

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

A reason why a lot of 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 – 10,000 INR upwards, with a warranty of 5-15 yrs.

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 which is supported by a metal framework inside.

They are good in terms of aesthetics and 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, because of the metal present inside, they can cast a black hue/ shadow between the crown and the tooth.

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

PFM tooth crown cost – approx 5000 INR

Tooth crown cost ( CAD-CAM ) – INR 7000 upwards with a warranty of 5-10 yrs

3)  Metal Crowns:

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

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

Their biggest 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 cost – approx 3000 INR

4)  Gold Crowns:

Even though gold crowns have been used in dentistry for more than 4000 yrs, their biggest 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.

Which crown is best suited for you?

When it comes to capping teeth, the crown options available are so many that you may end up getting confused. It may become difficult for you to decide which crown is best for you.

However, with newer materials in the market certain crowns create a more natural appearance and are equally long-lasting.

Can a crown be made for your missing tooth?

If you want to replace 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 are used to 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 tooth to replace your missing tooth/teeth in between.

Hence, the bridge is supported with the help of your natural tooth or implant used as an anchor.

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

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

Why would you need a dental bridge?

  • Fill a gap created by one or more missing teeth.
  • To eat your food properly
  • Speak clearly and confidently
  • Restore your smile
  • Maintain the shape of your face.
  • Prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting and moving out of its position.

A dental bridge can be made from any material from which crowns are made or it can be also made from a combination of materials.

The biggest disadvantage of a dental bridge is the reduction of natural teeth used for the support of the bridge. An adequate amount of tooth enamel has to be removed to provide space for the crown to be mounted on the remaining tooth structure.

Therefore, 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 more suitable and a lifelong solution. Read more.
