Dental Crowns

Modified by CombineZP
A dental crown is a “cap” which is shaped in a with high quality materials and sent to a dental office, where it is placed over a patient’s tooth – to protect the tooth as well as restore its size and optimal shape, strength, while also improving its appearance.
The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

A dental crown may be an excellent option in the following dental situations:

  1. To inhibit a weak, decaying tooth from breaking or to bind and protect a cracked tooth
  2. To cover up an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been significantly worn down
  3. To restore and strengthen a tooth with a large filling when the tooth has been severely eroded
  4. To secure a dental bridge in place
  5. To rectify a misshapen or discolored tooth
  6. To effectively hide a dental implant
  7. To improve a smile with a purely cosmetic modification

Types of Crowns Available

Crowns can be made at a dental lab from stainless steel, all metal (such as gold or another alloy), porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic.  now use advanced computer aided technology to fabricate these products.

  • Stainless steel crowns are pre-made at a and used on permanent teeth usually only as a temporary solution. The crown protects the tooth or filling while a crown is being fashioned for a more permanent solution at a dental lab. The crown protects the tooth from further damage. When the patient’s original tooth comes out so the permanent tooth can be put in its place, the temporary crown comes out naturally with it.
  • Metals used in crowns are typically gold alloy, other alloys (for example, palladium), or a base-metal alloy (for example, nickel or chromium).  Less tooth structure is required to be removed with metal crowns unlike other crown types, and tooth wear to opposing teeth is almost nonexistent. Metal crowns are created in to face day to day dental forces and remain in perfect condition which is probably why they last the longest. Metal crowns hardly ever chip or break, however their metallic color is the main drawback. Metal crowns are an excellent option for molars that are less visible.
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns can be matched to the coloring of your adjacent teeth, although more wear and tear to the opposing teeth occurs with this crown type. It is also possible for the crown’s porcelain to chip or break off on rare occasion. Besides all-ceramic crowns, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns have the highest resemblance to normal teeth. These crowns are an excellent option for front and back teeth alike.
  • All-resin crowns are not as costly as other crown types, although they wear down over time and are more likely to experience fracturing as opposed to porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
  • All-ceramic / All-porcelain crowns achieve the best natural color match than any other crown type and are an excellent choice for patients with metal allergies. However, they are not as long-lasting and durable when compared to porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. They can cause wearing to opposing teeth more so than metal or resin crowns. All-ceramic crowns are optimal for front teeth, as they most closely resemble natural teeth and front teeth experience less grinding.
  • Temporary versus permanent. Temporary crowns can be made at a local dental office, permanent crowns are carefully crafted in a . Temporary crowns are usually made of acrylic or stainless steel and are used as a temporary solution whilst a permanent crown is constructed by a using high-end, state of the art materials.
