Basically there are 3 different types of dental crown:
1) Full Metal - Uses gold/other metals. Last longest, toughest & offer best fits but not so nice.
2) PFM (Porcelain Fused to Metal) - Uses porcelain on top and metal below. Last long, tough & looks nice with a slide metal below.
3) Full Ceramic - Uses ceramic/porcelain only. Not as strong as others but looks the best (most natural). Recommended for front tooth.
For crown treatment, 1st treatment cost KRW150,000.
The 2nd treatment depends on the type of crown used. PFM cost KRW350,000 and Z.R. (Ceramic) cost KRW500,000.
