What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns, or ‘caps’ as they are commonly referred to, are made of natural-looking porcelain that cover or fully ‘cap’ damaged teeth in order to help improve the appearance and overall health of your smile. Whether it is from decay, disease, an accident, wear and tear, stains, or damage, dental crowns can help restore your teeth to what they once were. Crowns blend in with your own set of teeth so no one will even know you have one! Sometimes, an underlying metal shell may be used under the porcelain if additional strength is necessary.
Dental crowns can be made from different materials, including the full porcelain crown, the porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, and the all-metal crown. The type of material your crown is made of can determine the strength, durability, and longevity. Gold crowns or crowns made of another metal alloy typically last the longest and can withstand high exertion chewing and biting. They often last well beyond 10 years. All-ceramic or all-porcelain crowns have a nice natural look and can live a long, strong life like their gold counterparts. All-resin crowns are a great, less-expensive alternative to the types of crowns noted above. With that said, they are less likely to last as long and are more prone to breaking. You and your dentist can work together to decide which type of crown may be appropriate, depending upon the strength requirements and aesthetic concerns of the tooth involved.
