types of dental crowns in Lemoore CA, Hanford Dentist
Gone are the days when crowns only came in gold or silver color. These days, multiple types of dental crowns exist. Hanford Family Dentistry, located in Hanford, CA, can help you make the best choice. Dr. Nikunj Raiyani believes in individualized solutions to resolve each patient’s problems. He offers different types of dental crowns to provide every patient with a healthy and beautiful smile.

Options in dental crowns

  • Ceramic – Ceramic is the material of choice for both dentists and patients, for front teeth restorations. Ceramic is able to blend into your natural tooth color, providing a seamless and beautiful smile appearance.
  • Porcelain-fused to metal – This is an extremely durable crown that also provides a match to your natural tooth appearance. It differs from ceramic in that it is stronger because the porcelain is attached to a metal core.
  • Gold alloys – Gold crowns are not made entirely of gold. We use a mixture of gold, copper, and other metals. This type of crown doesn’t fracture or break down remaining tooth structure.
  • Base metal alloys – These are the crowns that give an appearance of silver in a person’s grin. This type of crown resists corrosion and is one of the strongest crowns available. The least amount of healthy tooth structure needs removed to place a base metal alloy crown.

How to prolong the life of any crown

Crowns often last many years. There is a chance of one becoming loose or falling out, but overall crowns are some of the most durable dental restorations available. A proper oral hygiene routine will help ensure long life for your crown. It is imperative to brush after eating and floss nightly. Regular dental cleanings and checkups are equally important.
