Over time, your teeth can get damaged and this can happen for a variety of reasons, like tooth decay, injuries or just use over time. Dental crowns are caps placed on top of damaged teeth. Crowns are used to protect, cover and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings don’t solve the problem.

Permanent crowns can be made out of many different materials. These materials can include:
- Full metal crowns. These are very durable and a perfect option for restoration of the chewing function of molars. They are made of a cobalt-chrome metal alloy, sometimes with a coating of precious metals and gold. A full metal crown is one of the most affordable options. The main disadvantage of this type of crowns is its metallic color. Hence, it is not recommended to use them for incisors and teeth located in a smile line.
- Zirconium crowns are the latest development in the dental prosthetics industry and one of the most preferred and most recommended types of teeth crowns. They consist of two components, a zirconia core and an outer layer of porcelain enamel. This type of structure makes the crown highly durable.
- Porcelain crowns are non-metal orthopaedic constructions made of pressed ceramics. Unlike metal-based crowns, porcelain crowns focus on the aesthetic benefits as they’re designed to resemble your existing teeth, which is particularly important if you require a crown on your front teeth. which ensures their high durability.
- E-Max crowns are made of lithium disilicate, it is completely biocompatible, easily tintable material that refracts and reflects the light just like natural tooth enamel. E-max dental crowns material is incredibly durable. Traditional porcelain crowns are about as durable as your natural teeth, but e-max crowns are even more durable.
How is the dental crown procedure performed?
You will typically have two visits to the dentist to prepare for a dental crown.
- The first visit
During the first visit, the tooth that’s going to receive the crown is examined, prepared and X-rays are taken of the tooth and the bone around it. The tooth that’s receiving the crown will be filed down across the top and sides which will make space for the crown itself. The amount of tooth that gets filed away depends on the type of crown you have. If too much of your tooth is missing due to damage or decay, a filling material can be used to build up enough tooth structure for the crown to cover. After reshaping the tooth, a paste or putty is used to make a copy, which is also called an impression, of the tooth that’s going to receive the crown. Impressions of the teeth above and below the tooth that’s getting the dental crown will also be made. This is done to make sure that the crown will not affect your bite. The impressions are then sent to a dental laboratory. During the visit, your dentist will make a temporary crown to cover and protect the prepared tooth while you’re waiting on the permanent crown.
- The second visit
At the second visit, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and place the permanent crown on your tooth. Afterwards, the fit and color of the permanent crown is checked and if everything is matched new crown is permanently cemented in place. You may enjoy your brand-new dental crowns.
