I had root canal performed on one molar at the back. Crown or some cap is needed to be fixed after the procedure. Is it necessary to have A Crown installed and what will be cost for The cheapest crown to be fixed As of now I can not afford to have a Crown implanted. The doctor I have been consulting has stated the price and installation of crown Around 3,000 Rs. Excluding the cost of root canal 4000 rs. Is my dentist overcharging me?

Hello lybrate-user cap is mandatory after a root canal procedure as after root canal your tooth is dead and might fracture with masticatory forces so it is always advised to go for a cap after root canal procedure you can go for metal Caps which might range from 1500 to 2000 rupees.

You can go for metal crown that is not tooth coloured. It may cost you half of what you have been advised. No the dentist is not overcharging. The cost of crown depends on the material and it ranges from 1500 to 15000. Rct for molar for rs 4000 is okay.

Yes it's quite necessary to get crown on root canal treated tooth. If he is charging 3000 for tooth coloured/ ceramic crown then rates are fine. For metal crown it is 1800/- I think your dentist is charging you fine.
