What are dental crowns made of?

Your West Chester, OH dentist offers different types of dental crowns made from diverse materials, including:

  • Gold
  • Porcelain
  • Porcelain fused with metal

Porcelain crowns are the most requested because they integrate easily with natural teeth and your smile.

However, for specific purposes, your dentist may recommend another type of crown for improved function. At your consultation, your dentist will discuss the various option and help you choose a crown type that is right for you.

A dental crown is a tooth cap cemented over a prepared tooth. Your dentist customizes it to match your teeth and function correctly with your bite.

We use dental crowns for many purposes, including:

  • Capping a dental implant after bone integration
  • Concealing tooth flaws like chips and discoloration
  • Restoring function to a damaged or vulnerable tooth
  • Fastening restoration teeth to healthy teeth via a dental bridge

No matter which crown type you choose, your dentist provides aftercare and upkeep instructions to help you get the most out of your restoration. Fortunately, this means treating your crown like a natural tooth!
