Which Kinds of Dental Crowns Are King?

You deserve to feel good about your smile, but you may be insecure if your teeth are in poor condition. Discover why dental crowns will put a smile on your face.

Discover Dental Crowns

Also known as cosmetic dental bonding, dental crowns have become a common way to enhance a tooth’s strength and appearance after injury or decay. They are permanent prosthetic items that have become so popular that they are offered by practically every affordable dentist Shelton 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 Shelton 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 onto metal – These dental crowns are stronger and more durable because their base is made of metal instead of porcelain.
  • Base metal alloys – Created out of various non-noble metals, these dental crowns are very strong and resistant to corrosion. Plus, they involve removing the smallest amount of natural tooth.
  • 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.

Picking the Perfect Dental Crowns

Even though each dental crowns has its strengths and weaknesses, all of them are less costly 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.
