Now for my left lower jaws crown is broken. and it came out. There is no crown now. for the right lower jaws small breakage is done. Now i want new crowns. please let me know, whether new crowns can be placed or not. and how much will be charged for a crown (approximately).

you will need xrays first to determine whether the roots of the teeth are intact. If so, new crowns can be placed.
Each crown will cost around R3 500
