How much do crowns cost?

The cost of getting a crown can vary widely depending on the materials used and the expertise of the dentist and lab technician. Insurance will typically cover part of the expense, but the amount varies with each carrier and plan. A person should expect to pay anywhere between $600 and $2,000 for a crown or veneer.
