What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are hard-wearing, long-lasting tooth-shaped caps which are used to disguise stained, discolored and misshapen teeth, or to strengthen weak teeth.They can also be used in a dental bridge to replace a missing tooth.

What are the advantages/disadvantages of the various materials?

They can be made from stainless steel, metal (gold or another allow), porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic or resin.

Stainless steel crowns are usually used as a temporary measure when a permanent crown is being made from another material.

Metal crowns are extremely hard-wearing and can withstand biting and chewing forces well. Compared to other crown materials, less tooth structure needs to be removed. The main disadvantage is the color.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns can be color-matched to your teeth. However, they cause more wear to opposing teeth than either metal or resin crowns, and sometimes the porcelain part of the crown can chip or break. The underlying metal can sometimes show through the porcelain as a dark line.

Resin crowns are the least expensive, but wear-down quicker – and are more prone to fractures than PFM crowns.

Ceramic or Porcelain crowns provide a natural finish and are suitable for people with metal allergies. They are not as strong as PFM, and they wear down opposing teeth more than resin or metal.

The Benefits of Dental Crowns

In cosmetic dentistry they are used to improve the appearance of a tooth and to disguise discoloration and irregularities. For teeth weakened by decay, root canal treatment or fracture a crown offers protection. They can also be used to restore tooth function or used to replace a missing tooth in a bridge, or dental implant.
