Types of Dental Crowns

There are several types of dental crowns listed below, if you are looking for dental crown in Guwahati you can visit family dental clinic having all facilities click to visit .

Ceramic Crowns

These are popular for their natural appearance and are suitable for front teeth.
These crowns require less removal of tooth structure compared to some other types, preserving more of the natural tooth. While not as strong as metal options, modern ceramic crowns are durable and suitable for most normal biting and chewing functions.

Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal (PFM) Crowns

These combine the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain, often used for back teeth. PFM crowns have a metal base (commonly made of alloys like nickel or gold) for strength, with a layer of porcelain fused to the metal to achieve a natural appearance.

Metal Crowns

Made of alloys like gold, these crowns are durable but less common due to their metallic appearance.

All-Resin Crowns

These are cost-effective but may wear down over time and are more prone to fractures compared to other types.

All-Ceramic or All-Porcelain Crowns

Offer a natural look and are a good choice for those with metal allergies. All-ceramic crowns closely resemble the appearance of natural teeth. They exhibit excellent translucency, mimicking the way light interacts with natural tooth enamel.

Temporary Crowns

These are often made of acrylic or stainless steel and are used as placeholders while a permanent crown is being crafted.

The choice depends on factors like location in the mouth, durability requirements, and aesthetic preferences. Your dentist can recommend the most suitable type for your specific needs.
