So What Is

  • Dental crown is a fixed prosthesis. It replaces the visible part of decayed tooth. It looks like a hollow cap. It’s placed over the damaged tooth and fixed to the root. If the tooth is completely missing, crown can be attached to a dental implant or to neighbouring teeth.
  • Dental technician makes a crown in the laboratory.

Types and Methods

There are different types of crowns, depending on the material they are made of:

  • all-metal 
    It is the oldest crown type and still widely used. Crowns can be made of titanium, chromium-cobalt, stainless steel alloys, gold or platinum. Metal crowns can withstand maximum chewing forces. So, they can restore chewing function perfectly. Also they are affordable. However, their appearance may not be the best.
  • metal-ceramic
    Porcelain fused metal crowns are reliable and aesthetic. Their price is average. The inner part is metal. The outer part is made of ceramic, which mimics the colour and structure of natural enamel. Disadvantages include translucency of the frame and bleeding when the gums recede. This problem can be solved by using the latest materials such as zirconium (white metal). Zirconium crowns are similar to metal ceramic crowns. They are durable and translucent. They also look great.
  • all-ceramic (metal-free)
    Ceramic crowns are one of the most expensive, but also one of the most aesthetic. Ceramic has two important advantages. It’s possible to create designs with a color and transparency similar to natural teeth. Also, it’s biocompatible. These crowns don’t oxidize and are the best option for installation in the smile area.
    Unfortunately, the absence of metal in the structure reduces strength. As a result, they are not always suitable for chewing prostheses.
