The metal ceramic crowns always have a slight metal hue whereas the all ceramic crowns are completely tooth colored and esthetic .
Dental crowns, also known as "dental caps," "tooth crowns," or "tooth caps," are one of the most effective dental solutions that help cover over and encase the tooth on which they are cemented. Crowns may be used to protect a decayed tooth, strengthen teeth, restore a broken tooth or to replace a missing tooth.
Dental crowns and bridges can be made of precious metal, gold, ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal metal free crowns.
There is a wide range of crowns to choose from depending on the esthetic and functional requirement . Our office specializes in CAD CAM Alumina and Zirconia METAL FREE LAVA and PROCERA CROWNS for high precision and esthetic results. ALL CERAMIC EMPRESS CROWNS for unbeatable natural looking appearance. Gold DUCERA for that added strength and natural looking teeth. The type of crown we use depends on your specific dental needs.
When we cement your new crown you'll still need to take good care of your teeth if you want the crown to last between 5-15 years. You can do so by brushing your teeth regularly, eating a well-balanced diet and visiting your dentist every six months.
