All Ceramic Crowns
The use of all ceramic crowns allows dentists to best mimick natural teeth. Years after placement of a conventional porcelain-fused-to-metal crown the area along the gum often starts to look dark. Often this is not the tooth that is dark but the shadow of the metal under the crown that you are seeing. By placing an all ceramic crown where there is no metal and your crown will continue to look natural . All ceramic crowns maintain a translucency that makes them hard to distinguish from natural teeth. Without the metal, the problem of a dark line at the edge of the gums is eliminated. The new technological breakthrough in the cements and stronger materials make it possible to create longer lasting crowns.
All ceramic restorations can be a great alternative to those with metal allergies. Some peple have allergic reactions to metals. Far worse than not being able to wear metal, sensitivity in the mouth can cause irritation to the gum’s. All ceramic, metal free crowns maybe your solution.
