How much does a metal dental crown cost?

Fees for any dental service may vary depending on where you live or where your dentist is located (area of country, urban, suburban, center of town, etc.). In addition there are always going to be a range of fees for the same service. This may depend on the experience of the dental practitioner, type of metal used and complexity of the treatment or procedure. In addition, the tooth may be severely broken down, and root canal treatment and/or build-up may be indicated.

You may be able to find average fees for dental treatment in your area, but as with most other things just because a product or service may be the cheapest, does not necessarily mean it is the best. Also, you must feel confident in the dentist providing your care.

It is important to remember that even with a full cast metal crown, the shape, contour, contacts, occlusion and relation to the gum must be considered, and the dentist needs to take the necessary time to consider these factors in your treatment.
