Dental Crown Materials
There are five types of materials most commonly used by dentists for the treatment of dental crowns.
Ceramic: It is made of a porcelain based material that can adapt to the natural tooth color. Contains no metal, does not cause allergy risk and hot and cold sensitivity, the closest view to natural teeth is obtained, has the ability to transmit light.
Porcelain: Provides the natural appearance of porcelain with the durability and functionality of the metal. Porcelain is an inorganic material composed of sintering of many metals with other non-metallic elements and processed at high temperatures.
Resin: Sensitive to wear and tear, usually applied in a single session, and tooth loss is less likely to occur. It is easy to repair in the event of subsequent problems, there are a variety of color options and a more affordable price range.
Gold alloys: A mixture of gold, copper, and other metals. The risk of breakage and abrasion is low, the structure is strong. It has a very long lifetime, however it is an expensive choice.
Base metal alloys: It is an alloy of copper and other metals, which does not constitute gold. It is strong and durable against corrosion and has a long service life.
Best dental crowns for anterior teeth.
The front teeth are the center of the smile, so it is best to choose a natural-looking tooth crown. Ceramic and porcelain-based dental crowns offer a pleasant aesthetic appearance. Porcelain fused to metal crowns in daily use offers durability. However, porcelain and ceramic crowns can sometimes intensify mutual teeth if the surface is roughened. If the gum line of the tooth is pulled, the underside of a porcelain fused with metal crown may show metal. In the meantime, resin crowns are approaching to imitate the natural appearance of the teeth. Although the material is less durable than the others, the front teeth are less susceptible to wear from the rear teeth, making them a good option for the rear teeth.
Best dental crowns for back teeth.
Ceramic and porcelain dental crowns give a natural appearance, but may not be a good option because the posterior teeth are subjected to more compression and bite force than the anterior teeth.
Eating and chewing activity is done with molars and posterior teeth. Gold and metal alloys are resistant to abrasion, fracture and crumbling, and remain soft on opposing teeth. Dental crowns can withstand pressure when you suffer from tooth grinding.
There may be other factors to consider when choosing a tooth crown, as well as appearance and strength. Allergic disorders are one of them.
