Dental Crowns are done by a Restorative Specialist and involve shaving a small amount of the enamel surface from the tooth in order to get proper retention for the Crown. Dental Crowns are a great solution to patients who suffer from cracked, chipped, misaligned, or stained teeth. Crowns can help to correct TMJ issues, restore bites, protect teeth that have had Root Canals done on them or for pure Cosmetic reasons. Sometimes a Crown may require other procedures such as Crown lengthening, Root Canals and Post & Core Build ups.
There are different materials used for Crowns. At our Clinic we use E-Max Porcelain from Ivoclar Vivadent, Zirconium from Zirkonzhan and noble metals for porcelain fused to metal restorations. You will go over the option that best suits your case during your initial evaluation with your Specialist.
The difference between the materials is that Zirconium is much stronger than Porcelain and is good for the Pre Molars and Molar area. E-Max porcelain is best for its aesthetic values and is good for the anterior teeth (Canines, Centrals, Laterals). Porcelain fused to metal Crowns are also good for its strength and durability values.

Dental Crowns can be a great option for patients with decayed, broken, or missing teeth.The final Dental Crown Cost will be dependent on a number of factors including the extent of your damage, whether your crown is manufactured onsite or in a lab, and your desired results. The starting cost for a Dental Crown can range anywhere from $500 to $3,000 USD per tooth, not including dental procedures that may be required before they are applied.
Dental Crowns Options
Dental patients have many choices when it comes to dental crowns types; they can consist of E-max Porcelain, Zirconia or Yellow Gold. The crown that is right for you will depend on your budget, medical needs, and cosmetic desires.
E-max Porcelain Crown
E Max is the newest cosmetic porcelain. It is both strong and has true-to-nature shade behavior and excellent light transmission for highly esthetic solutions. E Max is ideal for fabricating single-tooth restorations or complete smile makeovers. This ceramic two layer system produces highly esthetic results and is 2.5 to 3 times stronger than other glass-ceramic systems used today.
Porcelain crowns are widely considered to be the most aesthetically pleasing. The material makes it easy for dentists to fabricate a Crown that matches the color of surrounding teeth, so they can look very realistic.
Zirconia Crowns are an excellent option for patients that want a natural look or are allergic to metals. By eliminating the need for the supportive metal core, an esthetic Zirconia Crown can be created with a reduced thickness of material. This makes it a more favorable treatment choice in areas with limited space. Additionally, the elimination of the metal core allows for light transmission through the porcelain for better optical, life-like properties and a higher level of aesthetics.
Yellow Gold Crown
Although not as popular a treatment choice for aesthetic reasons, gold is still indicated in some instances. For example, patients with strong bites and those with parafunctional habits (such as grinding or clenching) might be better served with a gold crown. The traditional restorative material can provide stronger support to the remaining healthy tooth structure. Gold offers a level of durability that is appropriate for teeth located in the back of the mouth (such as the molars), where they will not be highly visible. Gold crowns tend to offer greater longevity and require less preparation than porcelain and porcelain-fused-to-metal alternatives. When chewing, gold tends to be less abrasive to the opposing tooth than porcelain. This helps to prevent wearing of the teeth.
