crown dental care

Crown treatment is used to restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down. Wedentist is one of the leading dental clinics in Coimbatore. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed as a cover over the root canal-treated teeth, implants, or natural teeth to restore their shape and size, strength, and appearance. This is the visible part of the tooth that is placed above the gum line.


Metal Ceramic Crowns

Metal ceramic crowns are crowns that contain a metallic base material surrounded by layers of ceramic. The types in metal ceramic crowns are

  • PFM (Porcelain Fused with Metal): This type of crown contains metallic base material surrounded by moderate-strength ceramic material. This is basic crown that balances aesthetics and strength.
  • DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering): an advanced type of metal ceramic crown. When compared to PFM crowns, the strength of ceramic increases wear and tear resistance. This crown has enhanced strength, and shade matching is more precise than PFM crowns. With high-strength ceramic, the marginal edge of the crowns can be built with ceramics that eliminate the black line in the margin of the crown.

Ceramic Crowns/Metal-Free Crowns

Metal-free ceramic crowns look more natural and aesthetic when compared to metal ceramic crowns and completely avoid metal exposure. All ceramic crowns does not have a metallic base and are completely made of ceramic material. Metal ceramic crowns reflect an opaque shade of metal that makes their appearance a little dull. This type of crown is advised for the front and anterior teeth for a natural and more pleasing smile. There are many options available at WE Dental for metal-free ceramic crowns, like ZIRCONIA CROWNS and EMAX CROWNS, which are advanced versions of ceramic crowns. These crowns match the tooth shade precisely and have increased wear and tear resistance.
