What are dental crowns made of?
Dental crowns can be made out of metal such as gold or palladium, but they can also be made out of a ceramic material. Ceramic crowns are designed to look and feel like a natural tooth and are often preferable when a patient has aesthetic concerns. That said, metal crowns are still useful in many situations and they can even be made with a white porcelain cover to match your teeth.
