There are two types of crowns that are generally used:

1. Metal Bonded Porcelain Crown:

Once the crown in cemented in place the metal is virtually invisible.

2. Zirconia All Ceramic Crowns:

the only difference between this one and the metal bonded porcelain crown is that this type of crown contains no metal.
