Differenve between the metal and non-metal crown is that, metal crown is made of some metal like chromium, molebdenum, palladium, even Gold etc, however nickel is not used; while non-metal crown is made of zirconium. The zirconia nonmetal is not the mineral zircon that is used for making costume jewelry, zirconia dental crowns are popular and advised by the dental health experts.

First of all, crowns that are used in the posterior have a core material. This is either porcelain type core material. Then more esthetic porcelain material is placed over the top of the core material. For many years metal has been used as the core material. This is for strength. The porcelain is bonded to the metal. porcelain fused to the metal crowns are typically opaque than ceramic crowns. The other problem that some people have is that porcelain and metal crowns can show a darker line if the gum tissue reduces.

All ceramic crowns can either made without a core is called a porcelain jacket crown. These crowns relay on a bond between the underlying tooth and porcelain for strength.

Porcelain/metal crowns still have their place in dentistry. All-ceramic crowns provide great esthetics and show promise for a long-term result. There are many factors associated with crown choice -bitting force, area of the mouth, surrounding colors of other teeth are just a few.

I use both all-ceramic and porcelain/metal crowns(and even gold crowns when indicated). Most dentist recommends Acero crowns for its durability and longevity.

Metals used in the preparation of metal-ceramic dental crowns are chromium, molybdenum, and palladium. Nickel is abandoned due to allergic reactions. The outer part of the crowns is ceramic while the core is made of combinations of these metals. And the crowns are made by hand

The non-metal crowns are made only of zirconium - zirconium dioxide-ZrO2. Here the crowns are designed with the help of the computer-based 3D scanner.

Both the metal and non-metal dental crowns have its own advantages and disadvantages. The non-metal dental crowns are much harder than the metal crowns. The metal crowns are more beneficial for their higher elasticity.

In addition, the Dental crowns can also be made using an alloy of gold and platinum, but it is completely withdrawn due to high prices.
