Ceramic Crowns

Esthetic Dental Crowns

There are many different types of materials that we can use when a patient needs to have a ceramic crown placed. In clinical situations where esthetics are paramount, we can take advantage of newer ceramic improvements and fabricate what is known as all-ceramic crowns. Ceramic crowns are lifelike and have coloring and light reflecting properties that more resemble natural teeth. Plus, because the crowns are all-ceramic and have no metal, you will never see “black lines” around the edges like you would in an older-style Porcelain-Fused to Metal (PFM Crown).

Strength of Ceramics

All porcelain (ceramic) crowns are as strong or stronger than traditional PFM restorations – so there is no compromise with esthetics and strength. In fact, we often recommend mouthguards for patients who have multiple ceramic crowns because of the possibility of wear.

Color Matching

One of the disadvantages of PFM crowns is that they are built upon a layer of metal and therefore don’t reflect light very well. For this reason, they are not the ideal solution for crowns in highly esthetic areas such as the front of the mouth. Because there is no metal foundation in a ceramic crown, the color matching of ceramic crowns to your existing teeth is much better than in traditional PFM crowns.
