What you choose will depend on your exact dental condition, the location of the potential crown, and your personal preferences regarding aesthetics and durability.
At Prevent Dental Suite, we help you determine what kind of dental crown will be best for you.
Gold, silver, and platinum are noble metals and are highly resistant to corrosion and oxidation in moist environments.
They have the advantage of being very durable for chewing and grinding.
They do not cause excessive wear on the opposing teeth that they must work with.
However, they do not match natural teeth in any way, except for shape.
The wearer must accept the gold or silver appearance of the crown.
Consist of a metal alloy base and a veneer of porcelain that is fused to the alloy crown in a very high heat oven.
Some porcelain-fused-to-metal are completely covered with porcelain.
Others only have the porcelain veneer on the surfaces that are visible.
Zirconia is a crystalline substance that is extremely hard.
The crown is formed out a single, solid piece of zirconia and layered with porcelain to give the crown the look of a natural tooth.
