Dental caps are medically termed as "dental crowns" that have the same shape and appearance as that of natural human teeth. The crowns are cemented to encase entire visible tooth above the gum line.
Dental Caps are used in various dental treatment procedures. As for instance, they are used to hold dental implants or dental bridges. They are also used to cover a decaying tooth; thereby preventing it from further damage.We have Dental Cap price information in 13 cities.

Root canal treatments involve large incisions. These incisions are later filled with artificial materials and do not have much of the natural tooth left. Crowning becomes an essential procedure here; so as to protect further damage and infection in the operated area.
There are various types of crowns available. Some of them are mentioned below:
Cost of dental cap fitting in India range around INR 1500 to INR 20,000 approximately; depending upon the type of cap used.
All procedures require the implantation of temporary crowns initially, that are later replaced by permanent crowns. Therefore, avoid eating sticky or hard food items when you are on your temporary cap. However, you can get back to your normal eating habits when your tooth is shielded with permanent crowns.
The risk involved in crowning procedures is very thin and can be considered to be negligible. However still, if you feel any discomfort or sensitivity, you need to report to your dentist immediately. Cases where crowns fall off or result in discoloration of adjacent tooth are rare and have complex remedial methods.
