How much does a dental crown cost?

The cost of a crown will vary from dentist to dentist, but most dentists will charge from $900-$1300.
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, materials used, esthetic demands of the procedure 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.
