Are you unhappy with seeing black lines around your dental crowns? Are you looking for a metal free crown option?
Many patients are looking for a metal free crown option. Willow Tree Dental with the use of CAD/CAM technology through CEREC offer all-ceramic crown restorations so you don’t have to have that unpleasant grey or black line around crowns at the gumline.
What is the difference between an all-ceramic crown and a porcelain-metal crown?
A porcelain-metal crown is a porcelain overlay on top of a metal substructure. Traditionally, this is the type of crown most dentists and laboratories made. It is a strong and reliable crown. Unfortunately, it is not the most esthetic type of crown due to the shadowing of the metal. In the last 5 years, with the release of newer and stronger ceramics, we are now able to offer a metal free crown and bridge option that are made entirely of porcelain or zirconia. Because of this, we can now truly offer restorations that can give a patient something to smile about.
Willow Tree Dental uses CEREC technology to fabricate same day all-ceramic restorations in our office while you wait. For more information, visit our CEREC page.
