Posted by Silver Summit Dental on Jul 15 2020, 06:16 AM
Do you know you can crown your teeth? Just like a king wears a crown and acquires power and strength associated with it, your teeth can wear one too!
Crowns are caps that cover prepared teeth and protect them. They give a perfect shape and look to your teeth.
When do you need a dental crown?
- You might need a dental crown to protect a weak tooth and support it from complete decay.
- Dental crowns are also of great help to restore an already broken tooth.
- It can also be used to hold a dental bridge.
- Crowns are a great way to cover a discolored tooth.
- After getting a tooth implant, a crown is used to cover it.
Types of Crowns
You can opt for permanent crowns, which can be made from all-metals (such as gold or another alloy), porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic.
- Metal crowns last for the longest time. They are known to withstand biting and chewing forces. They rarely chip or crack. However, as they have a metallic color, they are preferred for the molar region.
- Porcelain-fused-to-metal looks most like natural teeth. They are, therefore, usually used in front teeth. However, they are prone to wear and tear.
- All-resin dental crowns are less expensive than other crown types. However, they wear down over time and are more prone to wear and tear than porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
- All-ceramic dental crowns are desired by people who are allergic to metal. They give a better natural look to the teeth. Therefore, they are placed at the front teeth in most cases. They are equally efficient for the molar region.
How Much Do Crowns Cost?
The cost depends on the following factors:
- The type of crown you opt for
- It also depends on where you get it from
- The number of crowns and quality you select
