Different Types of Crowns that we Offer

If you want to get permanent crowns then our cosmetic dentist Philadelphia has all ceramic, all resin, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-metal, and stainless steel to provide you with. Here is the detailed description.

  • Stainless Steel : These crowns are the ones that are prefabricated in order to be primarily used on your tooth as a temporary measure. While the crown is made of some other material, this one simply protects your tooth and the filling.
  • Metals : When it comes to wearing down of dental crowns and bridges, metals are probably the best. They are sturdy and withstand any kind of chewing or biting forces.
  • Porcelain Crowns : Unlike the metallic ones, the crowns made of porcelain-fused-to-metal can be color matched and made just like your adjacent teeth.
  • All-Resin : If compared to other types of crowns, this one is the most cost-effective one. But, there are two drawbacks, firstly they wear down gradually and secondly, they have higher chances of fracture.
  • All-Porcelain or All-Ceramic :This one provides you with better natural color of the teeth as compared to all of the others.


Dental bridges is a procedure where the gap between two teeth because of one or more missing teeth is bridged. And we, the best dental care in Philadelphia, make sure that we do it with perfection because we know that teeth can make or break the entire look of yours.

A bridge is, ideally, made up of two crowns on both the sides of the gap and a fake tooth or teeth in between them. The two crowns are called the abutment teeth and the tooth in the middle is called pontic.
