A 360-Degree Cover for Your Teeth

Dental crowns, or caps, are 360-degree covers for damaged or misshapen teeth. They are made of various materials such as porcelain, ceramic, and metal alloys and are custom-fitted to each patient’s tooth to provide a natural-looking and durable solution. Dental crowns can be used to restore the function of a tooth that has undergone a root canal or has extensive decay, to protect a weakened tooth, or to improve the appearance of a tooth that is misshapen or discolored.

What Are the Types of Dental Crowns?

Porcelain/Ceramic Crowns:

These crowns are most commonly used for front teeth as they can be color-matched to your natural teeth, providing a natural-looking appearance. They are also a good option for those with metal allergies.

Metal Crowns:

These crowns are made of metal alloys, such as gold, platinum, or palladium. They are durable and long lasting, making them a good option for back teeth. However, they are not as aesthetically pleasing and may not be suitable for those with metal allergies.

Porcelain-fused-to-Metal (PFM) Crowns:

These crowns combine the durability of metal with the natural-looking appearance of porcelain. They are a good option for both front and back teeth, but the metal portion of the crown may become visible at the gum line over time.
