Dental crowns have long been a solution to restore the look and function of a damaged
tooth. These tooth-shaped caps help restore your teeth and improve your smile.
When you need a crown, you immediately start thinking about the types of dental crowns
and cost. This is because today there are many different types of crowns that vary depending
on materials, cost, procedures, and patients’ needs.
The main types of crowns used in dentistry include:
1. PFM ( Porcelain fused to metal crown)
Porcelain fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are another widely used type of dental crowns. They
provide both strength (due to their metal structure) and aesthetics (due to the porcelain coat
that covers the cap).
2. E-MAX- Lithium Disilicate.
The newest type of crown in dentistry today is known as E -Max. It is a type of all-ceramic
crown made of lithium disilicate (which is also light and thin).
3. Zirconia crowns
Zirconium is a relatively new material that combines the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain crowns. High translucent zirconia and layered zirconia crowns have become a more popular choice lately.
At least two to three dental visits are typically needed to prepare a tooth for a dental crown to be placed. The purpose of the first dental visit is to examine and prepare the tooth that is to be crowned and create an impression of the tooth so that the crown can be constructed. A temporary crown to protect the tooth is also usually placed during this visit.
In the second visit, which occurs once a dental laboratory has constructed the crown, the temporary crown can be removed and the permanent custom-made crown fixed in place.
