What is a dental crown and what are they used for?

Dental crowns are a kind of dental restoration which are fabricated on single tooth, to correct some kind of misaligned tooth. These dental crowns are stain-resistant because they are made of porcelains. This is a fixed kind of treatment, where the dentist or his/ her lab technician can fabricate the dental crowns according to color (shade) of the adjacent teeth (basically we can match the shade of the teeth), with different size & shape (anatomy of the teeth).

Types of dental crowns:

  1. Full metal crowns
  2. Porcelain fused to metal
  3. All-porcelain crowns
  4. Zirconia crowns
  5. Emax crowns

Full metal crowns

It is mainly composed of full metal. These kinds of crowns are basically customized for back/molar teeth (posterior teeth). Appearance-wise it looks silver or grey in color & esthetically not pleasing hence can be used in areas where the teeth are not visible.

Porcelain fused to metal crowns

This is a combination crown made of 2 elements metal and porcelain. The core is made from metal and the outer layer is made/ matched with the shade of teeth of each patient. They are strong, durable, and can withstand the wear & tear (grinding forces of the teeth).

All-porcelain crowns

These crowns are made of either porcelain or ceramic materials. They are rigid and strong but tend to be more delicate than their metal counterparts.

Zirconia crowns

These are made from zirconium oxide. They are strong and durable compared to porcelain fused to metal crowns, these crowns don’t give a bulky feeling to the patients. Looks like more natural teeth (esthetically pleasing). The best choice of treatment can be given for front teeth as well as back teeth as well. Because they withstand heavy biting forces. In case of bruxism or night grinding habits, the dentist advises the patient to go for zirconia crowns instead of pfm crowns.

Emax crowns

These are made from lithium disilicate. Even these crowns do not have any metal coping inside. E max crowns usually will be given to front teeth, because it looks more natural, and good anatomy and translucency can be given.

Procedure

1. Diagnosing and assessing the case
2. Primary impressions
3. Tooth preparation
4. Master impressions
5. Bite/occlusal registration
6. Temporary bridges- before sending the patient after preparing the tooth
7. Try-in or trials
8. Final cementation of the bridge.
