What exactly are Crowns made of?
Crowns can be made of different materials, including acrylic, metal and porcelain. All porcelain crowns are a good choice for front teeth, because they look most natural. For back teeth, metal crowns covered in porcelain, or all-metal crowns are usually used. Back teeth require a stronger material to withstand the forces of chewing.
Crowns are covers that fit over teeth to restore and strengthen them. Some reasons for choosing crowns: To cover discolored or unevenly shaped teeth. To protect weak or decayed teeth. To restore a fractured tooth. To attach a bridge. To strengthen teeth after root canal If you are interested in restoring your teeth with crowns, please ask us for more information.
