Porcelain crown

When the decay or the injury is too large, the tooth can be painful or discoloured. It might not come with the loosing of the tooth, the restoration can be executed with the placing of a crown in a lot of cases. It is providing a very good value for money so has become the most popular tooth replacement option.

Steps of placing a porcelain crown

  1. The dentist starts with applying local anaesthesia around the tooth to be treated.
  2. The tooth needs to be prepared by shaping.
  3. The dentist is taking its impression.
  4. Placing the temporary crown while the dental laboratory fabricates the final crown to be cemented into place.

The most popular crown materials are PFM, full porcelain and zirconia.

Advantages of PFM crowns

  • strength : good choice for both front teeth and molars
  • resistance : long-term, reliable tooth replacement
  • natural-looking: teeth coloured outside layer
  • precision: special, computerized CAD/CAM technology is being used for the best aesthetic and natural result

PFM crowns are having a metal substructure and being covered by porcelain. The version with no metallic components is called a full porcelain or an all-ceramic crown.

  • Appearance: it doesn’t look as natural as zirconia or full porcelain crowns, less aesthetic.
