1. Stainless steel crown – these are the crowns that has a steel look and is tough and can withstand occlusal load easily. The main disadvantage of this kind of replacement is it has a unaesthetic metal color.
2. Porcelain fused to metal (PFM) – this is the crown in which metal is covered with porcelain. It can be either custom done or can be done with the help of CAD CAM. In bothe the cases it has sufficien strength. The main disadvantage of this crown is that as it is two layered more of the tooth surface need to be cut doen. And secondly the procelin over the metal chps away with time giving a unpleasing appearance.
3. Zirconia crown (metal free crown)- these are the crowns that are free from metal. It is made up from a single blck and is CAD-Cam designed. It has a very high strength in very slight thickness also. And also there are no chances of getting chipped off and fracture. It has the greatest aesthetics.
