Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials to form tooth-shaped coverings to strengthen and disguise ugly teeth. They can be made from zirconia, porcelain, ceramic, metal and gold and are suitable for prosthetic reconstructions anywhere in the mouth.
Dental crowns are used in cosmetic dentistry to primarily improve the appearance of a tooth, covering discoloration and other irregularities, and helping to maintain a healthy-looking, natural smile.
However, their usefulness is not just cosmetic. They can help to preserve the natural function of a tooth, helping to restore a natural bite if a tooth is damaged. They an also replace missing teeth with a dental implant, or as part of a bridge.
Crowns are also useful in protecting teeth which may be weakened or damaged by fracture, decay or root canal treatment, and for providing extra protection for large fillings. They can also help seal a tooth from decay.
Good crowns are exceedingly long-lasting. However, the cost is very expensive, especially if you need more than one – which is why many thousands of people are opting to have their crown procedures done in less expensive locations abroad such as Kata Beach. The benefits of saving a substantial amount of money – more than enough to pay for a holiday – being an obvious plus point too good to miss.
The most common dental crowns are porcelain ceramic crowns and porcelain fused to metal (PFM) – and the cost does vary dependent upon the material used. Your dentist in Kata Beach will discuss the options with you so you can decide what are the best materials for your particular circumstance.
Porcelain or ceramic crowns are typically used on the front teeth because of their translucency and natural appearance, but they are strong enough to be used anywhere in the mouth. Made from bio-compatible materials, they are metal-free, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions.
PFM crowns are made from metal and ceramic. They are lighter than porcelain and stronger because they are made from metal.
