FaQ – Metal Dental Crowns

How long do metal dental crowns last?

Metal dental crowns are known for their longevity. With proper care, they can last for decades, often outlasting other types of crowns. Their durability is one of their most significant advantages, making them a preferred choice for teeth that require a strong and long-lasting restoration.

Are metal dental crowns noticeable?

Metal dental crowns are more noticeable than porcelain or ceramic crowns due to their metallic color. They are not designed to mimic the appearance of natural teeth, which can make them a less desirable option for front teeth. However, for back teeth, their visibility is less of a concern given their strength and durability.

Can you be allergic to metal dental crowns?

Allergic reactions to metal dental crowns are rare but possible, particularly with crowns containing nickel or other metals that some individuals may be sensitive to. Gold and platinum alloys are generally biocompatible and less likely to cause an allergic reaction. It’s important for patients to discuss any metal sensitivities with their dentist before choosing a metal crown.
