That said, have a look down below at the different types of dental crowns we can offer you in Brigham City, Utah, as well as the service available to you at Haws Family Dentistry.

 

Different types of dental crowns

Depending on what materials you are allergic to and the color and shape of your teeth, you will be able to choose from a variety of types of dental crowns custom made to fit your teeth perfectly. Different types of crowns include the following:

 

Resin

Resin crowns last between five and fifteen years, depending on how well the individual's oral hygiene is as well as the materials used. Resin crowns are typically constructed from composite material and have a seamless and natural look.

Porcelain

Porcelain crowns blend very well with your teeth' color and are one of the most popular choices. They also last more than a decade more often than not and look the most natural.

Zirconia

This specific type of crown is extraordinarily strong and holds its white glow much longer than other crowns typically do. Made from zirconium dioxide, this crown closely resembles titanium, even though it is usually characterized alongside ceramic crowns.

Metal

Metal crowns, without a doubt, last the longest. These metal crowns, unlike the types mentioned above, can last a lifetime without breaking or chipping. Metal crowns are made from gold, silver, or other metals.

Ceramic

If you have any metal allergies, it is highly recommended that you use an all-ceramic crown instead of a ceramic-fused-to-metal crown. All-ceramic crowns are also more popular with people who care more about their appearance, seeing as this specific looks almost identical to a natural tooth.
