The Different Materials available for a Dental Crown
Based on both cost and the position of the tooth in your mouth, we can look at a dental crown fabricated in porcelain, porcelain fused with a metal alloy, metal alloy alone, ceramic and a composite resin. They will vary in strength and life expectancy as well.
The Dental Crown Procedure
After evaluating the tooth and discussing the alternatives together, we will first take an x-ray to confirm the health of the tooth below the gum line. When the tooth is confirmed as being stable, we will next make an impression of the tooth so the dental lab has a map of the size and the shape. We will next choose a shade of white together to match your natural teeth. Then we will proceed to remove a layer of the enamel, fit you with a temporary crown as we wait a few weeks for the lab to fabricate your new crown. At the second appointment we remove the temporary crown, place the new one, approve it together, and then we permanently cement it into place. Just like that you have a perfect smile again and the damaged tooth is out of harms way. The dental crown can have a life expectancy of 10 to 15 years depending on your life style.
