Types of Dental Crowning with Dr Thomas Nechupadam
Dr Thomas Nechupadam in collaboration with the YouTube channel Unique Times is back with another episode of dental crowning. In this episode Dr Thomas discussed about ‘ Types of Dental Crowning ‘.
1 Gold crowns are in fact a combination of copper and other metals, such as nickel or chromium. The main advantage of gold crowns is their strength and durability.
2 This is definitely the most popular type of crown used nowadays. They are entirely made of porcelain material.
3 Porcelain fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are another widely used type of dental crowns. They provide both strength (due to their metal structure) and aesthetics (due to the porcelain coat that covers the cap).
4 Zirconium is a relatively new material that combines the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain crowns. High translucent zirconia and layered zirconia crowns have become a more popular choice lately.
5 The newest type of crown in dentistry today is known as E -Max. It is a type of all-ceramic crown made of lithium disilicate (which is also light and thin).
Dr Thomas will be further seen in various episodes where he will be discussing and advising about dental problems
