Dental crowns are caps placed on top of damaged teeth. Crowns are used to protect, cover and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings don’t solve the problem. Dental crowns can be made out of metals, porcelain, resin and ceramics. They typically don’t require special care over time other than regular good oral hygiene.
Dental crowns are a “full coverage” restoration of your existing tooth that completely replaces the damaged or decayed tooth structure. At Ranganath Dental, we use superior crown materials. We will always choose the appropriate crown material for its intended location and application.

Dental crowns have long been a solution to restore the look and function of a damaged tooth. These tooth-shaped caps help restore your teeth and improve your smile.
The main types of crowns used in dentistry include:
All Porcelain Crowns.
Porcelain Fused-to-Metal Crowns (PFM).
The average lifespan for a well-maintained dental crown is typically around 15 years. However, when taken care of properly, it is common to see them last upwards of 25-30 years.
Expect to pay more for porcelain crowns because they are usually more time-consuming than gold crowns. Porcelain, porcelain over metal and gold crowns average between Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 40,000
One disadvantage of crowns can be the cost.
Risk for Nerve Damage:
There is a possibility of nerve damage if a tooth is filed too thin.
Dental crowns can also be destructive to other teeth if the crown is too abrasive.
