Everyone wants a healthy, beautiful smile. But if you have one or more teeth that are cracked, chipped, decayed, or otherwise damaged, dental crowns may be the answer.
A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that can be placed over a damaged tooth to restore its appearance and comfort. Dr. Chen, our dentist at Cholla Family Dentistry, offers crowns in a wide variety of materials:
Metal crowns can be anything from stainless steel to gold to silver and beyond. These crowns are much more visually obvious; however, they are some of the strongest, allowing for long-term functionality.
Porcelain is a popular choice for those wanting caps that blend in with their current teeth. The porcelain is fused to an underlying metal cap for greater durability. However, the porcelain can chip at times and wear down along the gum line to reveal the metal base.
Ceramic is another option for those wanting a dental cap that closely matches their natural tooth color. Like porcelain, it can be fused to metal or can be made into an all-ceramic cap. These are not as strong, though, which is why they’re more often employed for front teeth.
One of the least expensive crown options, the resin can provide a natural tooth appearance but is also weaker than most other materials and prone to cracking or chipping.
