What Is a Dental Crown?
A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” cemented onto an existing tooth that usually covers the portion of your tooth above the gum line to restore its shape, size, and strength as well as improve its appearance. The crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface.
A dental crown may be needed for a variety of reasons, including to protect a weak cracked, damaged, or decayed tooth, to restore and improve the shape and strength of a worn, chipped, or broken tooth, to save a natural tooth from extraction, and for cosmetic dental treatments such as full arch zirconia crowns, combination with porcelain veneers, restoring dental implants, or holding a dental bridge in place.
They are several different materials used for the creation of custom dental crowns, spanning from metals such as gold alloy and stainless steel to tooth-colored and biocompatible crowns comprised of metal-free porcelain or ceramic (zirconia).
Reasons for Dental Crowns?
If you have a tooth that has been significantly damaged or decayed, and you are considering the extraction of your tooth, Dr. Maryam Horiyat can evaluate it to preserve your natural tooth by a dental crown or porcelain inlay or onlay.
Porcelain Crowns are often indicated in the following cases:

What Type of Crown Is the Best?
Zirconia® Crown and Solid Porcelain Crowns such E-max® and Porcera® from Nobel Biocare are the most often preferred and offered as an option at Aria Dental by Dr. Horiyat because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth and are very strong. In addition, when your dentist takes an X-ray of your tooth for routine checkups, the structure of your tooth under a solid porcelain crown can be seen, but not under a porcelain fused to metal or metal crown. Solid porcelain crowns and Zirconia crowns are also more biocompatible with your oral tissues, which ultimately decreases gum irritation and gum recession compared to metal-based crowns. Zirconia is not as translucent as porcelain or lithium disilicate (IPS) and therefore doe does not look as much like natural teeth. Thus, Dr. Horiyat in general recommends using zirconia for posterior teeth (molars) and IPS or metal-free porcelain crown for anterior (front) teeth.
benefits of metal-free restorations
Strength & Fracture Resistance
Compared to any type of metal-free dental crown, full zirconia crowns have the highest durability and are the most robust type of dental crowns. The material is extraordinarily tough and can endure a tremendous amount of wear and tear making them virtually indestructible once hardened and set in place. They are extremely resistant to oxidation and wear.
Appearance & Aesthetic
Both zirconia and porcelain crowns resist staining better than any other acrylic or composite ceramic crowns. One of the greatest advantages of full porcelain crowns is their natural-looking appearance and translucency characteristics, which aesthetically match the best to your natural teeth. Compared to metal-fused crowns, full porcelain crowns are more aesthetically pleasing, which is especially beneficial for patients who need a dental crown in the anterior or more visible area of their smile.
Metal-Free & Bio-Compatible
Both full zirconia and full porcelain crowns that are not fused to any metal have the highest biocompatibility to the human body, meaning that they pose no threat and cause no harm to your body and wellness. Since they are metal-free, they are chemically unreactive, so they cause no chemical corrosion. Full zirconia crowns require the removal of less tooth structure; therefore, preserving more of the natural tooth and are more optimal for conservative & biomimetic dentistry.
