Dental Crowns - Porcelain & Metal
There are a few different variations of dental crowns. The first type of crown is referred to as 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 on an implant. Teeth implants are now commonly used to restore lost teeth and fill spaces. A PFM crown has metal structure inside of the crown to help withstand the pressure of things like biting and chewing.
The second type of dental crown is referred to as a Pure Porcelain Crown. A Pure Porcelain Crown is exactly as it sounds, a crown custom made to fit your original tooth prepared only with porcelain. In most cases, Pure Porcelain Crowns are used for the front teeth that are 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. This 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 take a look and let you know what option would be best for you and your needs.
