Composition of dental crowns
 

At Parker M Jarvis DDS & Associates Inc our dental crowns are most often made of gold or porcelain.   Crowns also can be made of stainless steel, but those crowns are often temporary and not designed for long-term wear.

Porcelain crowns usually are built on a metal base, which fits snugly over the natural tooth.  We will choose a porcelain that matches the color of your natural teeth.

Porcelain crowns usually are so carefully matched in color, they cannot be distinguished from your natural teeth.  Many people choose porcelain crowns for their cosmetic appearance and the confidence it gives them.

New materials are now available that allow the use of "all-ceramic" crowns in some cases.  They have a beautiful life-like appearance and short-term studies support their success, with long-term trials ongoing.

Crowns also can be made of all gold.  Some people prefer not to use gold because it stands out from the other teeth in appearance.  At the same time, if the crown is on a back molar, some people feel the cosmetic issue is not a big one.  At Parker M Jarvis DDS & Associates Inc we will discuss the types of materials available if we recommend a crown.

Call us at (614) 882-5208 for a complete evaluation of your cosmetic needs.
