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 14 cities.

Root canal treatments may involve cutting a lot of tooth structure. The cleaned and shaped tooth is later filled with artificial materials and sealed completely. This results in considerable loss of strength of the tooth. 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 capping procedures start with tooth preparation or cutting to allow a 'seat' for the final crowns to be fixed on them. After the tooth is prepared, its measurements are taken and in the mean time, a temporary crown is provided which is later replaced by permanent crown. 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.
