Simple definition by the dentists of the Saint Genis Pouilly Dental Center:

Dental crowns are dental restorations that completely cover the visible part of the tooth, called the crown. They are used to strengthen a damaged or discolored tooth, or to make it look like a normal tooth. Dental crowns can be metal, zirconia or ceramic with a metal core.


The dentists of St. Genis-Pouilly explain to you:

Dental crowns are often used by our dentists in Saint-Genis-Pouilly to restore teeth that have suffered significant decay, a fracture, a crack, or that have undergone root canal treatment.

Dental crowns offer several advantages. They can strengthen a weakened tooth by protecting it against further fracture or tooth decay. Dental crowns can also improve the appearance of a damaged tooth by restoring it to its natural shape, size and color. Finally, crowns can improve tooth function by restoring a normal bite.

Dental crowns can be made of different materials, such as ceramic, porcelain, metal, or a combination of these materials. The choice of material will depend on several factors, such as the location of the tooth in the mouth, the bite force needed, and the aesthetics desired.

In summary, the dental crown is a common treatment option to restore a damaged or weakened tooth by protecting it, improving its appearance and restoring its function. During your dental consultation in St. Genis Pouilly, your dentist will explain in detail which type of dental crown is most suitable.


The dentists of the Center Dentaire St. Genis Pouilly explain to you:

  • Dental crowns on dental implants
  • Dental crowns on natural roots

Dental crowns on dental implants

Dental crowns on implants are dental restorations used to replace missing or damaged teeth. They are attached to dental implants which act as artificial roots to support the crown. Our dentists in St. Genis-Pouilly can either seal these crowns on the implants or trans-screw them.

Dental crowns on natural roots

Natural root dental crowns are dental restorations that are placed by your dentist on the natural roots of damaged teeth. Your dentist will place a crown on a natural tooth to protect the remaining tooth, to improve the appearance of the teeth, and to restore the normal function of the tooth. Crowning over natural roots is a common treatment in dentistry that can help preserve healthy teeth and improve overall oral health.


Our dentists at the Saint Genis Pouilly dental center explain to you:

Dental crowns can be:

  • Made of metal
  • Zirconia
  • Ceramic with a metal core.
  • In Emax

Metal dental crowns

Metal dental crowns are dental restorations made from metal alloys such as titanium or stainless steel. They are often used for rear teeth that bear a lot of force, as they are very durable and resistant to wear. They have the advantage of being inexpensive, however, they are visibly very different from natural teeth in terms of color, which is a major drawback. In our Saint Genis Pouilly dental clinic, our dentists have chosen to no longer place this type of crown , which is certainly resistant but very unsightly, and to prefer monolithic zirconia crowns.

Monolithic Zircon Dental Crowns

Monolithic zirconia crowns are dental restorations made from zirconia, a highly aesthetic ceramic material. Unlike traditional ceramic crowns which have a multi-piece structure, monolithic zirconia crowns are made from a single piece of zirconia, making them stronger and more durable. They are also much more aesthetic than dental and metal crowns. In Saint-Genis-Pouilly, our dentists systematically offer monolithic zirconia crowns as a more aesthetic alternative to metal crowns.

Porcelain-to-metal crowns

Porcelain-to-metal crowns are dental restorations that combine the advantages of a metal crown with those of a ceramic crown. They have a reinforced metal core to provide a strong base of support, while the ceramic surface is designed to resemble natural tooth enamel. Porcelain-to-metal crowns are sometimes offered by  our dentists in Saint Genis Pouilly  for the posterior teeth, which withstand greater chewing forces than the anterior teeth. Metal-ceramic crowns can also be an economical option for patients seeking a durable and esthetic alternative to monolithic zirconia crowns.

Emax crowns

Emax crowns are a dental restorative option that uses a highly aesthetic and durable lithium disilicate material. Emax crowns are considered by our Saint Genis Pouilly dentists to be the modern alternative to zircon crowns, as they offer a more natural appearance and greater resistance to fracture. Lithium di silicate (Emax) is a high quality ceramic that can be tinted to match the color of adjacent teeth, making it a popular choice for visible anterior teeth. Additionally, Emax crowns are more resistant to torsion and pressure than traditional ceramic crowns, making them more durable for posterior teeth that withstand greater chewing forces.

In conclusion, crowns made of Emax are an aesthetic and durable option for dental restorations and can be a good alternative to ceramic-metal or zircon crowns depending on the individual needs of the patient.

Emax crowns are certainly more expensive but they are the preferred choice  of dentists at the Center Dentaire et d'Orthodontie Saint Genis Pouilly .
