A crown is a fixed prosthetic device that is fitted to an existing tooth. It cannot be removed and they are cemented to your tooth or existing implants. Today’s Dentistry can both apply and remove dental crowns expertly. There are many types of crown to choose from depending on your personal circumstances and preferences.
Types of Dental Crowns:
- Stainless Steel. Stainless steel crowns are those that are fabricated and used on permanent teeth. They serve as a temporary measure. This kind of crown provides temporary protection for the tooth while a filling or “permanent” is being made using another material. These stainless steel crowns are most suitable for children’s teeth because they don’t need to be monitored all the time. They also tend to be more affordable than other types of crown.
- Metals. Metallic crowns do not need a lot of structure removal done, and tooth wear against surrounding teeth is minimized. Metal crowns are more durable than most of the alternative. They seldom break or chip. Perhaps one downside for metal cronws is the color. That is why it is most suited for out of sight molars.
- Porcelain infused with metal. This type of crown can be colored to match the color of the other teeth. On top of giving you that natural look and feel. Porcelain has a strength comparable to tooth enamel. Because of this it has become the material of choice for many people.
- All-resin. This would be one of the cheapest methods of getting yourself a crown. They too can be colored to match your teeth. It’s worth noting that the wear and tear is faster than the other crown in our range.
- All ceramic or all porcelain. Crowns that are all ceramic or all porcelain are the ones that are more natural in color than the other types. They are also suited for those who have metal allaergies.
- Temporary and permanent. Crowns can either be temporary or permanent. Temporary crowns are made directly in our dentist’s office while permanent ones are made in a dental laboratory.
- Zirconia or milled crown. These are the crowns that are digitally made. They can either be made directly in the dentist’s office or in our laboratory, depending on the availability of hardware and software. They don’t need any impression and they fit perfectly to the tooth.
