At D.A. Dental, Demi Athans, DMD will recommend the various cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental implants or dental crowns depending on your situation. Dental crowns come in various materials.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
One of the most popular materials for dental crowns is porcelain. They may be colored to match nearby teeth, which makes them a wonderful material. As a result, porcelain is an excellent material for a crown on any tooth. For increased sturdiness and stability, porcelain is bonded to metal. When opposed to metal or resin crowns, one disadvantage of this kind of dental crown is that it may subject the adjacent teeth to more wear.
Stainless-Steel Dental Crowns
These crowns are a stopgap solution. They are utilized on permanent teeth to safeguard a tooth or filling until a permanent crown is fashioned of a different substance. Baby teeth of youngsters are also protected from decay with them until the tooth comes out. In this situation, stainless steel crowns are a quick, low-cost alternative that only needs one visit to be placed.
They aid in protecting young patients' deteriorated teeth and are sturdy, corrosion-resistant, affordable, and cost-effective. Dental professionals utilize stainless steel crowns to restore a decaying molar. Additionally, it stops additional tooth deterioration. They are created in the identical size of a child's molar.
Zirconia Dental Crowns
Zirconium is a relatively new substance that blends porcelain crown beauty with metal strength. Recently, highly transparent and layered zirconia crowns have become high in popularity. Because zirconia can be cut and sculpted in the same dental office, zirconia crowns have the primary benefit of being less time-consuming to create. Sending them to a dental lab is not necessary. They are sturdy and long-lasting, and they offer excellent aesthetics, with a lower chance of chipping or breaking.
Dental Crown Costs

Additionally, in some cases, a core build-up is necessary before a crown can be placed in order to assist in preserving the integrity of the tooth. Other times, dentists must do a gingivectomy, a gum surgery in which a small portion of the gums is removed from the mouth to improve the appearance or prognosis of the affected tooth.
