A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a broken or damaged tooth to cover the visible portion of the tooth. Once the dentist cements the crown over the damaged tooth, it becomes a part of the tooth.

What are the Different Kinds of Dental Crowns?

Dental/Tooth crowns are available in a variety of materials. After evaluating the tooth’s location, function, the colour of the surrounding teeth, and the patient’s preference, our dentists always assist the patients in selecting the appropriate dental crown.

The following materials are used to create dental crowns:

  • Stainless steel
  • Metal
  • Porcelain
  • Ceramic
  • Porcelain fused to metal
  • All-resin

Benefits of Dental Crowns

A dental crown can help enhance oral health and cover various cosmetic defects in the teeth. The dental crowns can be used to: 

  • Bind together fractured or broken teeth.
  • Replace any oversize or worn-out fillings.
  • Restore teeth that have been damaged or shattered.
  • Maintain dental implants.
  • Enhance the look of teeth (discoloration and mild alignment issues).
  • Reshape the teeth.
  • Protect the teeth following a root canal treatment.
  • Another benefit is that crowns are long-lasting due to their durability and strength. Most people can go 5 to 15 years without needing any more work.
