Learn About the Different Dental Crown Types from a Fort Lauderdale Dentist

A dental crown is a fixed prosthetic device that people can opt to get to address different dental problems. They are different, however, from other common dental devices such as dentures or Invisalign® aligners which you can remove and clean daily; crowns are cemented onto the teeth or an existing implant. They can only be installed or removed by a qualified dentist.

Dental crowns are recommended for patients suffering from a number of conditions. They are ideal for protecting a worn or decayed tooth, for example, so that further breakage can be prevented. A cracked tooth may also need support from a dental crown that will effectively hold it together. Crowns can also be used to cover dental implants or teeth that are discolored or misshapen, and to hold dental bridges in place. Even young children can benefit from the use of dental crowns, like when teeth are so decayed that they are unable to hold a filling or when a dental crown is the only way to protect teeth of a child who is at high risk for tooth decay (because he or she has difficulty or is unable to observe proper daily dental hygiene).

What Can a Fort Lauderdale Dentist Tell You About Dental Crowns?

A Fort Lauderdale dentist can recommend the right type of crown to suit your specific oral condition. He or she can explain to you the different types of crowns that are available and the various materials that they can be made from. Here is a description of the most common types:

1. Stainless steel crowns are ideal for use among children; a stainless steel crown commonly covers an entire primary tooth to prevent it from decay, and when this tooth comes out (to make way for the permanent tooth), the crown simply comes out with it. They are the more cost-effective solutions because they do not require multiple visits to the dentist for installation.

2. Metal crowns are generally the type that is able to resist wear and tear the most among all crown types and rarely chip or break because they can withstand the constant biting and chewing activities of the teeth. They can be made with gold alloy, palladium, chromium or nickel, for example. The main disadvantage of metal crowns, however, is their highly visible metallic color, which is why this crown is best used on molars which are out of sight of other people.

3. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are the second most natural-looking crowns; they can be color-matched to the adjacent teeth. Take note, however, that the metal underneath the porcelain can still be visible as a dark line, usually along the gum line.

4. All-porcelain or all-ceramic crowns offer the best natural color match properties among all the crown types and are thus the most suited for use in front teeth. They are also perfect for dental patients with metal allergies. One drawback, however, is that they are not as strong as porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.

“Dr John has been fantastic and I’m so glad that I have someone that I can truly trust with my dental care! I needed a new crown and bridge and couldn’t be happier with the results. They look so natural and perfect for my smile! I’ve also had a whitening treatment in house and was extremely pleased with the results. Their staff are all very friendly and caring, at both locations. I also appreciate how efficient and flexible they are with appointments.”

"I absolutely love this office. Starting from the front desk girls, they are always so friendly. I love having my teeth cleaned by Olga, she’s so gentle and yet so good, makes you want to go back for cleanings more often. Dr John is very nice, and professional. This office is great at educating you when dental work is needed, but never tries to pressure you into getting it done. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and cared for."

"JJ Dental is AWESOME, I promise after your first cleaning you’ll be hooked. Dr John is extremely talented, his service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The best part is that I never feel pressured to get any work done, I am given my options but also told “ if it doesn’t hurt we can hold off for now.” I recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new dentist."

Insurance & Financing

At JJ Dental our insurance specialists deal directly with your insurance providers.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense. Once treatment has begun we will even submit the insurance claims on your behalf to eliminate any headaches for you. (See Accepted Insurance)

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.


We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.

Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?

Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?

Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?

At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
