What As A Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a dental restoration that is used to repair broken and damaged teeth to restore shape, appearance, and function. It is a tooth-shaped “cap” placed on the tooth or dental implants using dental cement. Crowns can be fabricated using different materials such as metal alloys, steel, porcelain, and resin.

For aesthetic purposes, porcelain and resin are the most common because they easily blend with the natural color of the remaining teeth. On the other hand, metal alloys and steel are strong and are mostly used for back teeth. Porcelain bonded with metal can also be used to provide stability and aesthetics at the same time.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Crown?

The severity of the damage to a tooth and the type of tooth, along with several other factors, will determine whether a dental crown would provide the best restoration. A crown can help prevent further decay of a tooth by and hold together that weak tooth. It can also be used to cover severely discolored teeth. Dental crowns strengthen and restore function and aesthetics to your crown in troy oh

What Are The Types Of Dental Crowns?

Metal Alloys

This type of crown uses gold, metal-based alloy, and other alloys. The most common examples are palladium, nickel, and chromium. They are sturdy and they rarely break. They can steadily withstand the biting and chewing, and last the longest among the different types of crowns. These kinds of crowns are highly-recommended for out-of-sight molars.

Stainless Steel

These are prefabricated crowns used to temporarily protect the tooth while a permanent crown from another material is made. This type was originally intended to treat the posterior and permanent young teeth. However, its use was later widened to include treatment of anterior (front) teeth as well. They are very durable.


Ceramic crowns are made from translucent material that blends perfectly with the natural color of the teeth. In comparison to other types of crowns such as porcelain fused with other metal and gold, they are made exclusively from ceramic with no other material. They are especially beneficial for those who have metal allergies as they are biocompatible so there is no risk of an allergic reaction or sensitivity. They are also suitable for people who have small mouths, and an ideal option for restoring front teeth.


This type of dental crown is fused with metal and unlike purely metallic crowns, they can be color-matched with the teeth. It is made with enamel-like characteristics that mimic the appearance of a tooth. Compared to ceramic, they are much stronger. They also resist stains better as opposed to other types of crowns. Porcelain crowns are good choice for front or back teeth.


These kinds of crowns are fabricated from a composite resin material similar to the material used for filling a tooth. Among all types, resin dental crowns are the most natural-looking crowns. Composite resin crowns are best for restoring the front teeth and do not create damage to the opposing tooth. The composite is a silicon dioxide mixture filled with tooth colored plastic matter. Since it is metal-free, they are aesthetically appealing because they can be easily fused with different shades. Finally, they are less expensive compared to other crowns.
