A dental cap, also called a dental crown, ranges in price from $500 to $3,000 as of 2015. The price varies depending on the material used to create the cap; the training, experience and location of the provider; and the location, size and condition of the tooth.
Materials used to create dental caps include porcelain, metal and porcelain fused to metal. The least expensive option is often the porcelain-fused-to-metal cap, which ranges in cost from $500 to $1,500. The cost of a metal cap, typically made of a gold alloy, ranges from $600 to $2,500. An all-porcelain cap costs between $800 and $3,000.
