Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns - Prism Dental Group, Thousand Oaks Dentist


The end result is a truly aesthetically pleasing appearance. There are a few types of dental crowns. Dental crowns are often chosen based on your needs and budget. Each type comes with it’s own set of advantages.

All ceramic or all porcelain crowns:

These types of crowns fully match the color of teeth for a concealed appearance and work very well with those who may have allergies to metal. This is the go-to crown solution for front teeth.

Zirconia crowns:

The strongest of the crowns, zirconia crowns are made of the silicate, zirconium. A naturally white color, zirconia crowns are the perfect material for dental crows, as they will match the rest of your teeth. The material is also extraordinarily strong and allows for a seamless chewing process.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns:

This option is very durable and matches the same shade as your teeth. However, they may appear as dark lines around your tooth so many people prefer to use them for back teeth that are not as visible.

All metal crowns:

This option is the most durable of them all at the cost of aesthetic appearance. They do not match the same color as teeth.
