What Are the Types of Dental Crowns?
When getting dental crowns, what is important is the materials that go into their fabrication. You will find multiple options from gold to resin. However, you must choose the one that suits your specific condition better (with the help of your dentist). We will explain to you the types of high-quality crowns we currently have available in Tijuana:
PFM (Porcelain fused to metal): this type of dental crown is a great choice for from or back teeth. Your dentist can match it to your other teeth’ color to give them a more natural look. It has metal on the interior and porcelain on the outside, which is the visible part. These crowns can also be very effective with long bridges that need the support of metal.
Zirconia crown: this crown has its name after the ceramic-like material (zirconia), which is by far the best option for artificial tooth due to its strength, durability, and realistic aesthetics. It does not harm the human body and does not require too much tooth preparation as other materials do.
E-Max crown: this type of crown imitates the look of natural teeth as no other. The material that goes into it is lithium disilicate glass (a combination of different elements like quartz, potassium oxide, etc.), making them a very durable and resistant option. However, they are usually better for front teeth because of their usual thin application.
Gold crowns: usually, these crowns are best for back teeth since the aesthetics are very different from natural teeth. Besides gold, they also have a combination of copper and metals like chromium, which allows them to be very strong and therefore last for a long time. They also do not require too much part of your teeth to be removed for their installation.
What Is the Procedure for Getting Dental Crowns In Tijuana?
You might often see that crowns take a few visits to the dental clinic. That is because some dental offices do not have the necessary equipment to fasten the process. Getting dental crowns in Tijuana (and to be more precise, in our dental office) will take only one visit. This is thanks to our Sirona innovative technology, which makes it possible for us to create your dental crowns the same day, saving you time and money at the same time.
First, your dentist will prepare your tooth; they will remove any root canal or decay (sometimes both of them). In this step, they will make some shaping of the tooth as well.
Then they will make an impression to make a mold that will be crucial to create a crown that fits your tooth correctly.
Finally, after your tooth and the crown are both ready, they will securely place and cement the crown into place, making sure you do not feel any discomfort and everything feels right. Otherwise, it may cause sensitivity, pain, or other inconvenient complications.
The whole process can take about an hour without any complications, and if that is the case, you will leave the clinic with new beautiful teeth..
What Is the Cost of Dental Crowns?
Having dental crowns in Tijuana and getting them installed in our dental office can cost you $499 USD per tooth. The overall cost will depend, of course, on a number of factors that involve; how many crowns do you need or want to restore, the material you choose for them, if there are any other required procedures (like a core build-up) to prepare you tooth to receive the crown, and if you have insurance that will help you cover fully or partially the cost.
