Materials for Your Crowns

Dentist in Wheeling IL | NWImplantDental.comAre you in need of a crown? Before you start the process, it’s important to learn more about the materials used for these dental implants:

  • Cubic Zirconia – Many people prefer cubic zirconia for their crowns as it is stronger than porcelain and looks better than gold implants. Crowns from this material are made from a digital scan, which means we can be very accurate when placing it in on your tooth. Please note that people with metal sensitivities often have issues with these crowns.
  • Gold – Gold is the standard for many people getting crowns. It is durable, lasts for a long time, and is gentle when it used amongst other teeth. Perhaps the biggest drawback of gold crowns is that it is very obvious that the tooth has been missing.
  • Porcelain – When you are seeking a crown that looks more like the other teeth in your mouth, porcelain is right for the job. Porcelain crowns are ideal for people who have issues with metal in their mouth and are less sensitive to hot or cold temperatures.
