Rebuild Your Teeth With Affordable Dental Crowns

What is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns may be recommended to help rebuild teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay, or extensive fillings. They can help protect and restore teeth that are either chipped or severely damaged. Dental crowns may also be helpful in improving an individual’s smile, and can be fitted over dental implants to help restore the original appearance of the teeth.

Types OF Dental Crown

Dental crowns serve as a versatile solution for helping to restore and protect teeth that have been compromised due to decay, damage, or aesthetic concerns. While each type of crown offers specific benefits tailored to different needs and preferences, selecting the right one requires understanding them. Here’s a closer look at the common types of dental crowns available:

Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) Crowns

PFM crowns combine the strength of metal with the aesthetic appeal of porcelain. With a metal core covered in tooth-coloured porcelain, these crowns may be an affordable option for those mindful of their budget.

Full Porcelain

Full porcelain crowns are suitable for the front teeth, eliminating the metal line at the gum that often accompanies PFM crowns. Crafted entirely from porcelain, these crowns may mimic the teeth’s original appearance, resulting in a more natural appearance.

Zirconia Crown

Zirconia crowns are generally recommended for their strength and natural white appearance, making them a preferred choice to help restore teeth that have been stained or disfigured over time. Known for their durability and ease of use, Zirconia crowns may be a long-lasting option to help enhance an individual’s dental aesthetics.

Taking care of your dental crowns is crucial to ensure they last as long as possible. This involves:

  • Routine dental check-ups: Regular visits to the dentists may help to preempt any issues with your dental crown.
  • Wearing a mouthguard during sports activities: If you’re someone who’s particularly active in sports, this may help protect your teeth from trauma and damage that could endanger the longevity of your dental crown.
