Dental Crowns Overview

Dental crowns are "caps" that a Philadelphia dentist can put on teeth. Dental crowns are routinely used to restore badly decayed, chipped, weakened and damaged teeth. Crowns are typically bonded to the teeth using a dental cement. The crowns restore teeth to their normal, size and function. 

Types of Dental Crowns

All-metal crowns are made using gold or silver-colored dental alloys. Because this type of dental crown is made of metal, it will not break. All-ceramic crowns are made of a porcelain-based material. All-ceramic crowns deliver amazingly life-like results. Porcelain fused to metal crowns are connected to a metal structure. These crowns provide a stronger bond than all-ceramic crowns.
