“What is the cost of a dental crown?”
If your child needs a dental crown (also called a cap) you may wonder how much it will cost. A dental crown is used on children’s teeth that have been damaged or decayed.
In this article, we’ll discuss crowns for children’s teeth, how much a crown for a tooth is and where to take your child for affordable dental care.
