What Affects the Cost of a Dental Crown?

Materials used in composition of the dental crown; the size, location and condition of the tooth; the training and expertise of the provider; and the provider's location affect the cost of a dental crown. Dental insurance may cover part of the cost of the crown.

Dental crowns range in price from $1,000 to $3,500 as of 2015, and they can be made of porcelain, metal or porcelain fused to metal. It takes more time and a higher skill level to install an all-porcelain crown, so this is typically the most costly type. Dental insurance may provide partial coverage for the cost of the crown if it is medically necessary, subject to a deductible and annual coverage limit.
