Which Types of Dental Crowns Reign Supreme?

If you want to improve the look of your teeth, consider dental crowns. They offer a world of dental benefits and can help you feel more confident about your appearance and smile.

The Crowning Glory of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are a form of cosmetic dental bonding. They are permanent prosthetic items that are bonded onto a damaged or decayed tooth to improve its appearance and strength. They have become so popular that they are offered by practically every affordable dentist Flint today. Dental crowns are made of a strong composite resin that is directly applied onto teeth and molded into shape. This makes them different than cosmetic dentistry veneers, which are thin shells of porcelain made to cover imperfections and are created in a dental lab.

Different Kinds of Dental Crowns

Cosmetic dental bonding is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. There are actually four options based on the material they are made of. Most affordable dentist Flint offer the following kinds:

  • Ceramic – Made of a porcelain-based material, these are ideal for restoring front teeth, because they blend perfectly into the natural tooth color.
  • Porcelain-fused on metal – These dental crowns are stronger and more durable, because their base is made of metal instead of porcelain.
  • Gold alloys – Made of a mixture of gold, copper and other metals, these are also a stronger option and won’t wear away the natural tooth structure.
  • Base metal alloys – Comprised of non-noble metals, these very strong crowns are also extremely resistant to corrosion and demand the least amount of healthy tooth removal.

Selecting the Right Dental Crowns

While some dental crowns may be stronger or gentler on the teeth, whichever you choose will definitely be much more affordable than cosmetic dentistry veneers. If your teeth are in need of repair, talk to a cosmetic dentist to see which dental crowns are best for you.
