Different Types Of Dental Crowns

A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a fixed cap that is cemented onto a tooth.

A crown has many benefits. It covers a damaged tooth and strengthens the tooth at the same time. Overall, crowns improve the appearance and alignment of the teeth.

Here are the four different types of dental crowns:

  1. Ceramic – This crown is made from porcelain-based material and is used in restoring the front teeth.
  1. Porcelain-fused to metal – This crown is more durable providing a stronger bond than regular porcelain.
  1. Gold alloys – This is a mixture of gold, copper, and other metals making it stronger than other crowns.
  1. Base metal alloys – This crown has properties that are more resistant to corrosion.
