There are a few different types of dental crowns. The first type of crown is a Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM). A Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) crown is a metal casing custom made to fit your original tooth with porcelain laid over the top of the casing for cosmetic effect. Most often, a Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) crown is used on the back teeth or an implant. Teeth implants are now commonly used to restore lost teeth and fill spaces. A PFM crown has a metal structure inside the crown to help withstand the pressure of biting and chewing.
The second type of dental crown is a Pure Porcelain Crown. A Pure Porcelain Crown is, as it sounds, a crown custom-made to fit your original tooth prepared only with porcelain. In most cases, Pure Porcelain Crowns are for the front teeth located in your smile line. The front teeth generally do not experience the brunt pressure of the jaw, so Infinity Smile Dental Center will favor using a Pure Porcelain Crown instead of a Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) crown during cosmetic procedures. A PFM will steer clear of any possible exposure of metal in your smile line. This way, you can smile big and bright each time, every time, without having to worry.
There are a few other dental crown options like gold or titanium crowns. Sometimes there are additional considerations like excessive biting forces or teeth grinding at night.
Permanent dental implant crowns are available for missing tooth replacement
The best way to find out which crown is right for you is to have one of our trained dental professionals examine you and let you know what option would be best for you and your needs.
