Metal Free Dental Crowns
A dental crown is an artificial restoration used to cover all or most of the visible part of a tooth. Sometimes referred to as a ‘cap’ the crown aims to restore the shape and size of a tooth whilst also providing durability. Crowns can be made from metal, porcelain and ceramic materials.
Before metal free crowns, most crowns were either made entirely of metals, or made of metal and then covered with a porcelain layer that still left you with a slight, visible metal line at the gumline. Thankfully, due to advances in technology, we may now use all-porcelain crowns that look completely natural and blend in with the rest of your teeth. Our porcelain crowns are seamless, and incredibly durable. With metal free crowns, you can have the restoration that you need while maintaining the natural-looking, beautiful smile you desire.
