We know that having choices in dental materials is important to our patients for various reasons, such as appearance and cost. That’s why we offer a range of choices for your dental crown procedure from our dentists near you. But before we talk about the different materials that can be used in a dental crown procedure, let’s take a look at why you may need a dental crown in the first place. You can also contact us now to schedule a consultation to learn more.
Although each patient’s need for a dental crown (sometimes referred to as a dental cap) will be unique to them, the following are some of the most common reasons that dentists will recommend them:

In general, there are several types of materials used in dental crown procedures. These include ceramic, all-porcelain, porcelain-fused to metal, gold alloy, and base metal. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages when compared with others.
However, when you book an appointment with our dentists for a dental crown consultation, we’ll spend time with you to discuss the benefits and limitations of various materials relevant to your need for the procedure.
In the meantime, let’s take a look at the benefits of an all-porcelain dental crown and a Procera® All Ceramic crown – two of the most popular choices for patients seeking a natural appearance and durability.
All-porcelain crowns are ideal in their natural appearance due to their translucent quality. This translucence is similar to qualities found in a natural tooth, so it’s easy to understand why they are a top choice. Also, this material is known for its strength which makes it a wise investment for long-term durability.
For even more durability, you may want to consider an all-ceramic crown, such as a Procera All Ceramic crown, as an option. Patients appreciate this material for dental crowns because there is no metal used, which can often cause dark lines to appear at the gum line at the base of the treated tooth. These crowns are designed using the latest CAD/CAM technology, which offers a perfect combination of strength and esthetics.
Although each material is different concerning advantages and disadvantages, the beauty of having choices is that you don’t need to make a decision alone. You can book an appointment with our dental care team at Randolph Dental Group to learn more about each one before deciding. Why not get started with that consultation by booking an appointment now?
