Teeth Capping to cover a gap

Good day

I was wondering what the most cost effective way would be to fill a gap between my teeth.. I would assume that a tooth cap would be the most viable way to do this. Would it be possible for you to give me some kind of indication, just a ball park figure of what this could cost? just for a single cap, or is there another way to fill up the cap?

Thks have enjoy your day...

The most cost effective way is a plastic denture from about R500. Capping/bridging costs much more from around R4 800

Hi There

Thanks... with regards to the plastic denture.. I dont have a missing tooth just a gap that was a result of an injury after a car accident. Will the plastic denture still be the best option?, basically my orignal tooth has moved out of it's normal place thus creating a gap.
