Metal crowns are dental crowns made from various metal alloys such as gold, silver, palladium, cobalt-chromium or nickel-chromium. They are strong, durable, and they require less removal of tooth structure compared to other types of crowns.  Metal crowns are better suitable for teeth located in the back of the mouth (molars and premolars) as they can withstand the biting and chewing forces better than other types of crowns.

Metal crowns are a popular choice for patients who have a tendency to grind their teeth (Bruxism) as they are less likely to wear down or break or chip-off than other types of crowns. They are also preferred by dentists for their ease of placement and longevity. However, metal crowns are rarely preferred for anterior (front) teeth as they are not aesthetically pleasing and are noticeable when the one smiles or speaks.
