Crowns are generally made of porcelain and fit on top of an existing tooth structure. Crowns also could be part of dental bridges in replacing a missing tooth/ or teeth instead of “partial” denture appliances.
Since the early 1970’s, all-ceramic crowns have given thousands of people the superior cosmetic results they desire. Because all-ceramic restorations contain no metal understructure, they are able to transmit the color of adjacent teeth and tooth structure. This enables them to blend more completely with the surrounding natural teeth. In addition to their chameleon-like quality of disappearing in the mouth, these restorations have become stronger than ever. Ask us if all-ceramic can be used for your treatment plan to provide you with the most natural looking smile available today!
