4. What are porcelain teeth made of?

Permanent crowns can be made from a variety of materials. These materials may include:

Metal Dental Crown
  • Metal: Several metals can be used in crowns including gold, palladium, nickel, and chromium. Metal crowns are rarely chipped or broken, last the longest in erosion rate, and just remove a small number of customer’s teeth. They can also withstand the force of biting and chewing. The iridescent color is a good choice for skewed molars.
  • Porcelain-alloy-metal: This type of crown can match the color of the teeth next to the crown one. They have a more natural tooth color. However, sometimes the metal underneath the skull of the tooth cap reveals itself as a dark line. The other flaws include the possibility that the porcelain of the crown might be chipped or shattered and the crown is worn down on the teeth facing it. This wear on other teeth especially affects the teeth that come in contact with the crown above and below the client’s mouth when it is closed. Metal-fused porcelain crowns can be a good choice for incisors or cavities.
  • Full-resin: Crowns are made from ordinary resin usually less expensive than other types of crown. However, they wear out over time and are easier to be shattered than porcelain-metal crowns.

  • Full-porcelain: These types of crowns give the best natural color than any other crowns. They also are the best option if the client is allergic to metals. However, the client who is suitable with the metal doesn’t stick with these types for long. Full-porcelain can also wear down the opposing teeth a little more than metal or plastic crowns. Full-porcelain crowns are a good choice for incisors.
  • Porcelain coverings: These crowns have a hard inner core. We use porcelain coverings to replace the metal liners used in the full-porcelain crown fabrication. Porcelain coverings that are porcelain can restore the most natural and suitable color. They are also more well-sustainable than full-porcelain.
