Types of Dental Crowns
As preferred modes of tooth restoration, Dr. Richard Wilczek Inc. offers dental crowns in a variety of materials. Depending on your unique dental situation and budget, we will suggest the material best suited for you. Dental crowns are available in:
Metal crowns are durable and easily withstand the biting force. These crowns have a distinctive colour that makes them stand out. That’s why they are preferred for molars that are not visible.
Unlike metal crowns, porcelain crowns closely resemble your natural teeth. Nevertheless, porcelain crowns are not as strong as metal crown and hence, are not preferred for molars.
A combination of porcelain and metal, these crowns provide a natural look due to the porcelain covering and also have the strength of the metal underneath.
These crowns are cost-effective and temporary in nature. Mostly available as prefabricated crowns, stainless steel crowns are used while the custom crowns are prepared.
Crowns made from resins might be more prone to chipping and wear compared to other types of crowns. However, as an affordable alternative, resin crowns are often preferred.
Depending on the type of crown, our dentists in Prince George will offer you tips and tricks for maintenance. With regular care and cleaning, you can expect your dental restoration to last long and ensure optimum dental health for you.
