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

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

In other words, there are always multiple options available to choose from.

So the first steps 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?
    • For the front teeth, we usually recommend an all-ceramic or metal-free crowns as they are always aesthetically pleasing.
  • And if you have any parafunctional habit then we recommend a stronger variant of a crown, just so that it doesn’t chip or break.
  • 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 being made is equally important, but that’s a considered aspect when you get yourself treated at a decent dental clinic.

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

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.

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 taken out like removable dentures to clean.

Many varieties of crowns are available nowadays.

Most importantly, there are just 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 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 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 costs approx. INR 5000

Tooth Crown Cost (CAD-CAM) are in the range of INR 7000 & upwards with a warranty of around 5 years to about 10 years.

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 usually costs approx. INR 3000

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.

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

Which crown is best suited for you?

When it comes to capping teeth, the crown options available may completely confuse you.

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

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

Porcelain fused to Metal (PFM) range around INR 5000

PFM (CAD-CAM) are in the range of approx INR 7000 & upwards (with a warranty of about 5 years to 10 years)

And Metal Crowns are in the range of approx INR 3000

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

Can a crown be made for your missing tooth?

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 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?

Here are 6 reason 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 its position.

A Dental Bridge can be made from any material from which crowns are made. 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.

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 more suitable and a lifelong solution. Read more.
