Metal Free Crowns
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns.
For decades the framework for the dental crown was produced in metal and then covered with a porcelain layer. Now with the evolution of all ceramic materials and their higher esthetic qualities, dental patients have options. Metal free framework beneath the porcelain gives excellent aesthetic qualities to make the final restoration extremely natural looking.
In addition, porcelain crowns keep teeth and gums healthier than their metallic counter-parts because they can be placed above or at the gum line. Please ask us about porcelain crowns when you schedule your next appointment.
