Branded crown: Dental crowns are tooth caps that are placed on the tooth to restore the size, colour, or appearance of the original tooth. Dental crowns are available in different materials like metal, porcelain, pfm, ceramic, etc. There are branded crown caps that provide the best original appearance to your teeth to make you smile and laugh openly. Star Dental Crown is a brand that fabricates high-quality crowns and bridges. Placing the crown helps the teeth in functioning normally, and chewing food comfortably. It also enhances the look of the individual. You can enquire about branded crown caps to find more about them.
A metal crown is made of metal like copper, gold, nickel, chromium, etc. It is strong, and long-lasting. Their strength makes them suitable for use in back teeth. Less tooth is removed while using metal crowns.
Good aesthetics makes it suitable for use in front teeth. They look like natural teeth. It is biocompatible because no metal is used. Its colour matches with the original teeth. They are more costly than others but are worth it because of their good aesthetics and long-lasting use.
They are popularly known as PFM. The base structure is made up of metal which makes it strong, and the outer layer is covered with porcelain that gives a good look. They are cheap as compared to porcelain crowns.
It is a new material that is used. It combines the strength of the metal and the good aesthetics of the porcelain. They are biocompatible and hence it is less likely that they will cause allergic reactions.
The ceramic crown is made up of lithium disilicate. They are long-lasting and strong. Furthermore, it is light as well as thin. They are suitable for the front as well as back teeth.
The cost of dental crowns depends on certain factors like the number of teeth that need to be crowned, charges of the dentist, type of crown used, etc.
|All-Porcelain||Porcelain Fused to Metal||Zirconia Metal|
|General Description||Porcelain, ceramic or glasslike fillings and crowns||Porcelain is fused to an underlying metal structure to provide strength to a crown or bridge||Zirconia metal result in strong, effective crowns and bridges|
|Principal Uses||Inlays, onlays, crowns and aesthetic veneers||Crowns and fixed bridges||Crowns and Fixed bridges|
|Durability||May fracture under heavy biting loads||Very strong and durable||High corrosion resistance prevents tarnishing; high strength resists fracture and wear|
|Preparation Consideration||Strength depends on adequate porcelain thickness; it requires oderate tooth reduction during preparation||Including both porcelain and
metal creates a stronger
restoration than porcelain
alone; moderately aggressive
tooth reduction is required
|We can make a full zirconia crown with only 1mm of space|
|Resistance to Wear||Highly resistant to wear, but porcelain can rapidly wear opposing teeth if its surface becomes rough||Highly resistant to wear, but porcelain can rapidly wear opposing teeth if its surface becomes rough||Highly Resistant to wear and gentle to opposing teeth|
|Resistance to Fracture||Prone to fracture when placed under tension or on impact||Porcelain is prone to impact fracture; the metal has high strength||A full zirconia crown is virtually indestructible|
|Biocompatibility||Well tolerated||Well tolerated, but some patients may show allergenic sensitivity to base metals||Zirconia is a 100% biocompatible material|
|Post-Placement Sensitivity||Low thermal conductivity reduces the likelihood of discomfort from hot and cold||High thermal conductivity
may result in early postplacement
hot and cold
|High thermal conductivity may result in early postplacement discomfort from hot and cold|
|Esthetics||Color and translucency mimic natural tooth appearance||Porcelain can mimic natural tooth appearance, but metal limits translucency.||Metal colors mimic natural teeth|
|Relative Cost/Visits||Near about 3 times higher to Porcelain fused to metal; requires at least two office visits and laboratory services||Requires at least two office visits and laboratory services||Priced nearly same as All Porcelain and requires the same amount of procedure time|
