Crowns are recommended for teeth which are weaker and more prone to breaking. This could be as a result of root canal treatment, existing large fillings, grinding/clenching habits or even dental trauma. Dental crowns are usually made of zirconia, lithium discilicate. The ideal material will depend on location of the tooth, size of crown and any aesthetic considerations.
There are several types of filling material currently available to repair cavities, including tooth-colored (composite) fillings and silver-colored (amalgam) fillings. Composite resin materials are increasingly used to fill teeth because many people prefer tooth-colored fillings and because composites continue to improve.
There are also treatments called crowns, used to repair badly broken-down teeth. Crowns can be made of gold or other metals, porcelain, or stainless steel (usually used on baby teeth). Generally, dental fillings and crowns do not last a lifetime.
