A tooth crown is a cover on a tooth. It is placed on a tooth after a surgery. The purpose of a crown is to make a tooth stronger after a surgery. It preserves the shape, size and strength of the tooth. The tooth also looks better after placing a tooth crown over it.
Tooth crowns are made using four types of material: Zirconia, Porcelain, Metal and Acrylic.
These are the strongest and best type of tooth crown.
These are cheaper than zirconia crown and commonly used.
These are only made of metal, and not recommended.
These are very weak, and not recommended.
Zirconia tooth crown is the strongest and best tooth crown. It has no metal in it and therefore looks like a natural
tooth. It is more expensive than other tooth crowns. We use zirconia tooth crowns in all treatments.
A porcelain tooth crown is made by putting a layer of porcelain (ceramic) over a metal crown.
It is cheaper than zirconia tooth crown and has high strength. These are better than metal and acrylic tooth crowns.
Metal crown is made completely from metal. It is not recommended because it is black in color and looks bad. Metal
crown is very cheap in cost and has a long life.
Acrylic crown is very weak. It is used as a temporary tooth after an implant surgery. Its life is 6 months. It is replaced
with a zirconia or porcelain tooth crown later on.

A tooth crown is placed in 2 days in two parts.
First Visit: After a surgery on the tooth like implant or root canal treatment, the dentist takes an impression of the mouth. It takes 10-15 minutes. Tooth crown is made in 1-2 days.
Second Visit: After a gap of 2 days, in the second visit, the tooth crown is permanently glued to the teeth surface using a very strong chemical. It takes 20-30 minutes to apply a tooth crown on one tooth.
An intraoral scanner takes a 3D image of the mouth. This 3D image is directly sent to the CAD / CAM machine that makes tooth crown, veneers, lumineers and dental bridge from zirconia (ceramic) material, that fits perfectly on the tooth.
