What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are artificial caps used to cover damaged or decayed teeth. Crowns restore the teeth and protect it from further damage. Crowns can also be used to cover a discoloured or misshapen tooth. A capped tooth looks very much like a natural tooth. Consult us for any queries on cost of dental crowns in India.

What are the different types of crowns?
Dental Crowns in New Delhi are made from various types of materials. Depending on the condition of your teeth, our dentists in New Delhi, India will suggest you the right type of crown required.
Gold Crowns are made of gold. They generally last a long time and won't chip or break. They tend not to wear down your opposing natural teeth. However, the gold colour does not look natural, particularly on front teeth.
Porcelain Crowns look the most natural. All-Ceramic crowns are metal-free crowns made of zirconia or other aluminous materials with high aesthetic appeal. They continue to evolve in strength and durability.
PFM Crowns (Porcelain-fused-to-Metal) look natural and are very strong. They do not chip very easily and metal sub-structure provides adequate strength. However, depending on their design, a thin line of metal may show if your gums are thin or recede with age.
