The quality of the materials used and the skill of the practitioner is to be consider for the cost to do your dental In essence, placing a crown or bridge on your tooth that then finally it become a part of your body. As such, care and consideration of these factors are very important. The experience and skill of the dentist is essential. Un-experience dentist can lead to future problems. Along with the skill dentist, he/she should have knowledge of the latest dental technologies/techniques and use only the best materials.
  • CROWNS in bad shaped - can cause food traps that may lead to further decay and gum inflammation or gum disease, Bad shaped crowns can also alter your bite limiting your chewing ability and/or causing you to bite unevenly, thereby adding undo pressure to surrounding teeth and overtime, damaging them.
  • Unfitted CROWNS or crowns with open margins (where the crown edge meets the natural tooth) allow bacteria to seep underneath causing further decay, which can then lead to bigger problems.
MATERIALS - The materials chosen can make a huge difference in the longevity, durability and appearance of the crown. Lesser quality materials mean the crown may not last long.
If you are considering having one or more dental crowns fitted as part of a dental treatment program, then understanding the difference between various materials used to manufacture dental crowns can make it easier for you to determine which type of crown material is right for you.
Full Metal Crown
  • Metal– Metal dental crowns are among the strongest options, although their major disadvantage is their aesthetics.
  • The material used to create these types of dental crowns is stainless steel and gold.
  • Metal is clearly visible and not aesthetically pleasing.
  • Many patients with metal allergies are not candidates for metal crowns.
  • Some patients are opposed to metal in their mouths.
  • Some patients experience hot/cold sensitivity with metal crowns.
  • The quality of metals used in the crown can differ greatly and should be carefully considered.
PFM crown (Porcelain fused to metal)

  • Porcelain Fused To Metal (non precious, precious and high precious metal)
  • Another good option for dental crown is the porcelain fused to the metal crown. This provides a metal base for strength, but the exterior surface is porcelain, allowing it to more naturally blend in with your other teeth.
  • Long lasting and durable.
  • Aesthetically pleasing if the metal margin doesn't show through.
  • Because of the porcelain on the crown, this option is not quite as durable as a metal only dental crown, but it is still long-lasting and durable.
  • The metal margin beneath the porcelain shows through as a dark shadow or line at the edge, making the teeth not quite as “natural” looking as all porcelain or all ceramic crowns.
  • Many patients with metal allergies are not candidates for PFM crowns.
  • Some patients are opposed to metal in the mouths.
  • The quality of metals used in the crown can differ greatly and should be carefully considered.
  • All Porcelain or All Ceramic (Zirconia, and CEREC CROWNS)These dental crown materials offer the most natural look in your mouth, since they can be made to look just like real teeth. For those people who are allergic to metal, or who prefer not to have metal crowns or PFM crown, all porcelain or all ceramic crowns are an excellent option. However, there are differences in materials used.
  • Very strong and durable.
  • Aesthetically pleasing. Most natural looking.
  • IMPORTANT - No metal means the dentist is able to see through the crown in x-rays.
  • Excellent choice for patients with metal allergies.
