A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth — to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
Zirconia Crown & Bridge
NATURAL LOOKING & LONG LASTING NEW TEETH. A Zirconia crown is a popular type of all-ceramic crown which is worn to improve the appearance of a tooth. They are durable, easy to wear and long lasting. Plus zirconia crowns have a translucent appearance which means that they are indistinguishable from your own teeth.
PFM (Porcelain fused to metal) Crown & Bridge
PFM crowns look like normal teeth. Can be color matched to your adjacent teeth. These crowns can be a good choice for front or back teeth.
Ceramic Crown & Bridge
All-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns provide natural color match and may be more suitable for people with metal allergies. All-ceramic crowns are a good choice for front teeth.
Metals used in crowns include gold alloy, other alloys (for example, palladium), or a base-metal alloy (for example, nickel or chromium). Metal crowns withstand biting and chewing forces well.
Stainless Steel Crown
Stainless steel crowns are prefabricated crowns that are used on permanent teeth primarily as a temporary measure.
