Crowns: Key Points

15 Dec

One of the popular methods to restore teeth to their original appearance and functionality is the installation of crowns. However, there are different types of crowns, each with its own advantages, and understanding them can be quite challenging.

In this article, we will briefly explain the types of crowns, their benefits, and why you should consider getting them at Stomaservice.

What is a Crown?

A crown is a special prosthesis that resembles a real tooth and covers the entire visible part of a tooth. Crowns are attached to the teeth using dental cement. Typically, crowns are recommended when a tooth is damaged by around 50%, and in cases of complete tooth destruction, a post (or core) is first installed in the root canal, and then the crown is affixed to it.

Types of Crowns

There are several types of crowns distinguished by the material used:

  1. Metal Crowns:
    • Advantages:
      • Durable and long-lasting, often lasting up to 15 years.
      • Economical and cost-effective.
      • Resemble natural teeth and can be made from precious alloys.
    • Disadvantages:
      • Less aesthetically pleasing as they are visible on the tooth’s surface.
      • May raise concerns due to the presence of mercury in amalgam crowns (though it is safe in small amounts).
  2. Non-Metal Crowns:
    • Advantages:
      • Highly aesthetic, as they do not cause gum darkening or allergic reactions.
      • Virtually invisible, even with thinning gums, providing a natural appearance.
      • Options include pressed ceramic, zirconium dioxide, and aluminum oxide.
    • Disadvantages:
      • Typically more expensive than metal crowns.
      • Requires special skills from the dentist during installation.
  3. Metal-Plastic Crowns (Metalloplastic Crowns):
    • Advantages:
      • Economical choice.
      • However, they may not be very long-lasting and can lose their attractive appearance within a couple of years.

Properties of Crown Materials:

Crown materials are typically chosen based on the following characteristics:

  • Metal (Strong, cost-effective)
  • Metal-Ceramic (Balanced strength and aesthetics)
  • Metal-Ceramic on Precious Metal (Natural appearance, hypoallergenic)
  • Metalloplastic (Cost-effective but less durable)
  • Pressed Ceramic (Aesthetic, biocompatible)
  • Zirconium Dioxide (Aesthetic, durable, hypoallergenic)
