Dental Crown (Caps) in Springfield & Longmeadow, MA Crowns Springfield
What is a Dental Crown?
Crowns, also called caps, fit snugly over teeth to mask chips, broken teeth, misalignment, stains, and other imperfections. Crowns can immediately enhance your smile by brightening your teeth and making them much stronger.
What are the Different Types?
There are three different types of crowns:
- Metal – this type of crown can be made of gold alloy, palladium, nickel alloy, or chromium alloy. Metal crowns are ideal for use on the back teeth.
- Ceramic – Ceramic crowns look like normal teeth and are ideal for use on the front teeth.
- Porcelain fused to metal (PFM) – PFM crowns are stronger than ceramic crowns and look like normal teeth.
