Prices : Prices for crowns will vary quite a bit. Factors in fees are material chosen (gold prices have tripled in a very short time), location, experience of the doctor, and much more. If you call around the seattle area, you will find fees ranging from $600 to $2000. You likely can find some for less and for more. A rule of thumb is that the extremely cheap are so because the doctor has to (desperation) and the extremely expensive are so because the dentist can (so skilled that he is in high demand).
If your goal is for the cheapest, you may not be 100% happy in the end. The crown may "work", but you may get poor service, wait a long time, drive a great distance, etc.
If your goal is to have the best crown, it likely won't be the cheapest.
