Dental Crowns strong as Natural Teeth?

Natural teeth vs dental crown

When it comes to the strength of your teeth, there’s no prize for second place. If you have teeth that are compromised in strength because of decay or other factors, then you should take action quickly. Natural teeth can become weak that they break easily. They may be unable to withstand everyday forces like biting and chewing.Having a dental crown over it is makes the underlying teeth stronger. The question is: do crowns as strong as natural teeth really exist? You might be concerned about how strong a crown will be, so here is some information to help you.

What your dentist considers before placing a crown.

A dental crown is usually recommended when a tooth’s condition has become so compromised that it is no longer able to support a filling. In these circumstances, the only way to protect the tooth from further decay or damage is to install a crown. Before your dentist places a crown, therefore, they will have to assess several factors.

Firstly, they will have to determine whether the tooth is healthy enough to support a crown. If it is not, then you may have to have a root canal instead. They also need to gauge the size of the tooth and ensure that the surrounding gum tissue is healthy enough to accommodate the crown.

Are dental crowns better than natural teeth?

When one of your teeth is severely damaged, a tooth crown is often the best way to save it. Crowns can relieve tooth pain, restore a tooth’s health and functionality, and protect it from future damage. They need to be strong enough to withstand the same amount of force as your natural teeth.

Permanent crowns are much stronger than temporaries are, as they are typically made from stainless steel, gold or platinum alloys, ceramic or porcelain, and metal composites. The strength of these permanent materials prevents chips and breaks in the outer protective surface of your restored tooth.

Crowns as strong as natural teeth: the basics.

The strength of a tooth is generally determined by the quality of its underlying structure. In other words, a tooth is as strong as its enamel and dentin. The enamel is the hardest substance in the body, while the dentin is a calcified tissue that lies beneath the enamel. While enamel and dentin are strong enough to support a filling, they are not strong enough to support a crown. The key to crowns as strong as natural teeth are the use of metal to supplement the tooth.

The metal is usually gold alloys, porcelain, or porcelain fused to gold alloys. The metal in a crown acts as a support structure that replaces the lost enamel and dentin. In this way, the crown is as strong as the rest of the tooth. Crowns, however, do not replace the lost enamel and dentin to the same thickness. This is because metals and ceramics simply do not have the same level of hardness as enamel and dentin.

Are all dental crowns same?

Although crowns are designed to provide added support and strength to a tooth, they do not come in one standard strength. There is variation in the strength of dental crowns, just as there is in natural teeth. Crowns, however, are generally stronger in the front teeth than the molars at the back of the mouth. This is because the molars are naturally very strong to withstand the forces generated by biting, chewing, and grinding. When choosing a crown, your dentist will have to consider which tooth, or teeth, require the added protection.

You should also be aware of the differences so that you can let your dentist know which strength you prefer. The strength of a crown is determined by the size of the tooth, the quality of the underlying tooth tissue, the thickness of the crown, and the material used to construct it. SAPTeeth is a group of highly specialized polymers; specially made to protect the bone, implant, or natural tooth. Research shows that ceramic, porcelain, Ni-Cr, and Zirconia teeth exert about 24 to 149 times more stress on bone as compared to SAPTeeth. This difference is due to the shock absorbing capability of these polymers. 

How strong are dental crowns compared to natural teeth?

The strength of a dental crown is measured in pounds per square inch or PSI. The PSI is the amount of force that is required to break the tooth. While of natural teeth is measured in hundreds, while the PSI of a crown is measured in thousands. The PSI of natural teeth is between 100 and 200, while the PSI of a crown is between 10,000 and 15,000. This means that the crown is 10 to 15 times stronger than natural teeth.

Crowns are also better at resisting forces that are applied in different directions. This is because they have a larger surface area than natural teeth. So, even if a tooth has been weakened to the point where it is at risk of breaking, a crown will add support and strength. As a result, a tooth that breaks is not lost but can be saved with it.

Other considerations for determining if a dental crown is strong

There are a number of factors that will affect the level of strength a crown has. The first is the size of the tooth. The larger the tooth, the more strength it has. The second factor is the quality of the underlying tooth tissue. If the tooth is badly decayed or has suffered trauma, then it will not be strong enough to support a crown. The third factor is the thickness of the crown. The thicker the crown, the stronger it will be. The fourth factor is the material the crown is made out of. The stronger the material, the stronger the crown will be.

Processing of SAPTeeth Dental Crown

1. Advanced Consultation with 3D imaging and scanning of the impressions

Once you have decided for the treatment, the doctors will send the impressions, x-rays and other diagnostic data to the laboratory. Wherein, based on the requirement, the laboratory shall prepare a diagnostic plan.

2. High resolution virtual design of the required dental treatment surface

After about 30 minutes we are ready with the virtual simulations and models for your treatment. This helps the doctor and the team to plan the case in advance and execute predictably.

3. Automated customised fabrication of teeth & prosthesis (Designing & Milling)

Once we receive the final impressions, a complete digital workflow is followed to ensure reduced errors and human contact. With the help of advanced software’s and CAD-CAM technology; your new teeth are milled in the desired material. It takes about 15 minutes fabrication time per tooth.

4. Hygiene and Quality checks for every milled tooth or framework 

Every prosthesis we make is thoroughly examined and checked by the expert dental technician. Final touches are given and then the teeth are cleaned thoroughly before placing it in the patient’s mouth.

5. Straightening & Beautification of Teeth on same day

The doctors receive the prosthesis and its checked again the mouth. Using the special CemResin, the prosthesis is fixed in the patient’s mouth. Regular care and maintenance of the prosthesis ensures long term success.

6. Post treatment oral care, hygiene and follow-ups

To enable you to get the full advantage of the prosthesis, you ought to take all precaution as advised which includes but not limited to; regular check-up and cleaning along with occlusal balancing. After your treatment, you may need to upgrade with better materials in the near future. In such circumstances, if you are under warranty; a nominal fee of 20% of the treatment cost or an upgradation at difference of the cost; shall be charged for repair or replacement of prosthesis.


A tooth may be at danger of breaking if its strength has been reduced. When this occurs, a crown can be put in place to strengthen the tooth and save it from suffering additional harm. A dental crown is typically 10 to 15 times stronger than natural teeth and is made to be as strong as the rest of the tooth.
