Whether you just got a new dental implant or had your tooth repaired with a root canal procedure, porcelain crowns are the perfect way to cap a natural tooth or restoration.
metal and porcelain crowns
In the past, porcelain crowns were always built upon a metal core. That was the only way they could have enough strength to withstand the tremendous biting forces that are exerted on all your teeth. That metal core is what creates the dark blue line at the edge of many crowns. However, in recent years, this has changed for the better.
the benefits of all-porcelain crowns
All-porcelain crowns maintain a translucency that makes them hard to differentiate from natural teeth.
Without metal, the problem of a dark line at the edge of the gums is eliminated. This allows us to place the edge of the crown above the gum line, which is healthier for your tooth and gums. When you want to improve your smile, all-porcelain crowns are a beautiful and natural-looking choice.
