The dental crown in Sanoviv Dental fully covers the whole visible part of the tooth lying at the gum line. Gold alloy, metal base alloys such as palladium, or additional alloys counting nickel and chromium are the metal utilized when making dental crowns. In contrast to the other kinds of crowns, metal crowns need less tooth structure to be taken out and less deterioration on the opposite teeth. Metal crowns hold up against the biting and chewing forces well, and in terms of wear and tear, they last the longest. Metal crowns normally don’t break or chip and are a good choice for encasing molars.
Metal can be merged with porcelain too, and matched with the color of neighboring teeth. Patients feel more deterioration on the opposite teeth with this kind of crown. The porcelain area of the crown can be broken or chipped too. Nevertheless, next to all ceramic crowns, the metal merged with porcelain crowns look a lot like natural teeth. Numerous patients prefer these kinds of crowns for either front or rear teeth.
All ceramic or all porcelain dental crowns offer the finest textural and color match. This is appropriate for patients who have metal allergies. Still, these crowns are not as sturdy as crowns with metal merged with porcelain and can eat away at opposite teeth more than gold crowns do. The most well liked option for forward teeth are crowns which are fully ceramic. This is because these crowns far better aesthetics and the fact that in full dentition, the forward teeth normally stand less force than the teeth at the back of the mouth.
