Dental Crowns are of three different types based on the material they are made from:
1. All metal dental crowns (Gold, Stainless Steel etc.)
2. Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) dental crowns.
3. All porcelain dental crowns.
Metal crowns are the most durable and offer the most precise fit but they are not esthetic as they do not match tooth color. Porcelain fused to Metal (PFM) dental crowns and all porcelain crowns are tooth colored crowns. PFM dental crowns offer the best combination of aesthetics and durability at affordable cost. PFM dental crowns are usually used to restore posterior teeth where the forces of chewing and grinding are strongest. All porcelain crowns are the most aesthetic and are used primarily used for front teeth where the need for strength is not as critical.
Tooth Coloured restorations are the treatment of choice at smile Olive Pediatric & Multispeciality Dental Clinic center for dental caries. We prefer tooth coloured restorations to the traditionally used silver amalgam fillings as they score over the latter in terms of better aesthetics and are free of mercury as a constituent unlike the amalgam fillings where mercury is a major ingredient.
