What Type of Dental Crown is Best for You?

Posted on 11/13/2016 by Dr Wael Garine

Getting a dental crown can be a complicated choice. You probably know that there are a number of different crowns out there, each with their own benefits and drawbacks.

So, when faced with the decision as to which type of crown to get, what should you do? Here are some things to keep in mind.

A Dental Crown Can Be Made of Different Materials

There are essentially four different types of dental crowns. The first is a dental crown made entirely of ceramic. This will look just like your natural teeth, and most people will never know that you have a crown.

Another type of dental crown is one made of ceramic that has been fused to a metal base. This, too, will look like your natural teeth. It differs from the solid ceramic crown in that it is slightly stronger, but it also requires a little bit more work to fashion and install.

The next type of dental crown is one made from a metal alloy. This crown will look like a metal tooth, so it is very noticeable and not usually recommended for teeth in the front of your mouth. The metal is very durable and does not wear out opposing teeth as quickly as a ceramic crown does.

The last type of dental crown is one made from a gold alloy. As with the metal alloy crown, this type of crown is very noticeable. It is highly resistant to wearing out or fracturing, and does not damage the other teeth surfaces that it comes in contact with. It is also likely to be the most expensive of your options.

Deciding what type of dental crown you are going to get can be confusing. Feel free to ask us if you have any questions.
