A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. It’s often needed when a tooth is cracked or decayed so that a filling won’t suffice. The crown covers the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line. At H&M Family Dentistry, dental crowns can be used for various reasons. They are often used to cover teeth that are broken or decayed. They can anchor a bridge, cover dental implants, and cover discolored teeth.

These crowns are a combination of metal alloy and porcelain. They consist of a metal shell with a porcelain coating on top. The metal provides strength, and the porcelain gives the crown a natural look.
These are the least expensive types of dental crowns. However, they are the least durable. They are often recommended for teeth in the back of the mouth where chewing pressure is not as great.
These crowns are made entirely of porcelain and are very durable. They can match the color of your natural teeth very closely. However, they are less robust than other types of crowns.
Zirconia crowns are made of zirconia, a strong and durable ceramic material. They are solid and can withstand a lot of wear and tear. They are also very resistant to staining.
These crowns are made from gold or other metals. They are very durable and can last for many years. However, they do not look like natural teeth and can be more noticeable than different types of crowns.
