Does your dentist suggest that you need a dental crown? Find out about the different types of dental crowns, advantages, and costs before you make a decision.
Dental crowns can protect your teeth, provide an aesthetic look, and last for a long time.
While there are several different types of dental crowns in the market, porcelain dental crowns are the most popular with patients due to their translucent appearance and resemblance to natural teeth.
There are four popular types of dental crowns available in the market: Ceramic, gold base, metal alloys, and porcelain-fused-to-metal type.
All-ceramic dental crowns are made from porcelain, and they’re ideal for front tooth restorations due to their natural color shade. The dentist may need to remove tooth structure in order to make room for a porcelain crown.
Ask our dental experts for advice regarding aftercare once you get your dental crown. With proper care, ceramic dental crowns can last for years.
Porcelain is fused to the outside of the metal portion to provide added strength to weak teeth. These types of dental crowns also prevent leakage and provide resistance to recurrent dental decay. Porcelain-fused-to-metal offers added strength compared to porcelain alone.
Gold and base alloy dental crowns are strong and resistant to fracture and wear. They can be fastened to your tooth securely and are highly compatible with gum tissue (there are fewer chances of irritation to the gum).
The dentist may also use copper or other base alloys to fabricate dental crowns. Gold and metal alloy dental crowns require the least removal of tooth structure prior to fastening them.
