Which dental crown is the best for me?
Hello guys, welcome to another blog! Today I want to address one question many patients ask me. By popular demand, dental crowns in Los Algodones are one of the top services. Thanks to its cost, it is a very accessible treatment to go for. But how do you know what dental crown to go for? Hopefully today we will help you find an answer.
First of all, if you do not know what a crown is, let’s explain it real quick. A crown is a cap that goes on the tooth after it is built up. The dentist prepares the tooth by wearing it down so the cap can fit perfectly. They can look really amazing and with an excellent work nobody will tell the difference if it is a real tooth or not.
Impressions are made obviously to match your other teeth. You can even choose the color so it can look really natural. The trick is to go for a material that not only match your other teeth but that function that well too. You do not want to commit to dental crowns and break them or chip them in a week. You want them to last 10 to 15 years or so or even more!
What material is best for a dental crown?
The best one is zirconia because it is the toughest and looks clean too. Full porcelain are not a bad option too. Those two materials are best for any teeth, especially in the front because they look just as nice as regular teeth. Porcelain fused with metal crowns in the other hand drop the ball entirely if you want them in the front.
The thing with these crowns is that they are made from a noble metal and covered in porcelain. They are really cheap, yes, but the metal portion can be seen underneath. That instantly gives away that they are crowns so they can only be useful in the back where no one can seethe metal lining underneath.
