Types of Dental Crowns
Porcelain crowns provide strong support and their natural appearance compliments your smile. People who have porcelain crowns can smile with confidence. Crowns are unrecognizable amongst your teeth, only you know you have them!
There are 3 basic types of dental crowns: porcelain, metal, and porcelain-metal fusions.
Porcelain is considered for its biocompatibility and resemblance to natural teeth. Porcelain restorations are recommended for aesthetic restorations.
Metal crowns, when utilized, are less biocompatible than porcelain, but are safe to use nonetheless. Metal crowns are usually recommended to replace molar teeth. This is because molars bear the most stress of all your teeth, and metal is strong, resistant, and durable.
Hybrid metal-porcelain crowns combine the looks of porcelain with the stability of metal. However, using these crowns requires significant removal of the patient’s natural tooth structure. Our dentist will recommend which crowns are best for you!
