Make no mistake – crowns do rejuvenate smiles. Although the primary purpose of a dental crown is to protect and strengthen teeth, you’ll love your improved great looks too!
Crowns have come such a long way from the all-metal originals, through porcelain fused to metal, and finally to all -ceramic or all- porcelain. Today, replacing outdated crowns is a surefire way to take years off your appearance.
Type of Crown: All-Metal
Benefits: Often made of gold (which is strong and long-lasting and will not wear down opposing teeth), they can also be made of less expensive metals or a mix of gold and alloy.
Type of Crown: Porcelain Fused to Metal
Benefits: Porcelain creates a more natural look than all-metal crowns, and though the metal limits translucency, it adds strength, which is particularly useful at the back of the mouth.
Type of Crown: All-Ceramic or All-Porcelain
Benefits: Translucent porcelain with opalescence looks the closest to natural teeth enamel, will not wear down opposing teeth and there are no tell-tale dark metal margins at the gumline as sometimes occurs with porcelain fused to metal. These crowns are strong, long lasting, and youthful looking.
