Based on 2012 figures, a dental crown may cost around $1,000 before insurance kicks in, according to Forbes. If a person needs a root canal with the crown, he should expect to spend an additional $300 to $1,500.
In order to lower the cost of dental crowns, many patients look into dental benefits, explains Forbes. Some people may get dental coverage through a job; others may be willing to pay $12 to $50 a month per person for coverage. Shopping around for the best rates is recommended for those looking for dental coverage, and many options are available depending on the amount and type of dental work a person may need.
