All Ceramic Crowns Buckhead
All-Ceramic Crowns & Bridges:
Old technology: Porcelain fused to metal crown (PFM’s)
New technology: All-Ceramic Crown & Bridge
The most beautiful and realistic looking crown is an all-ceramic crown. Dr. Tekin and his staff at Art of the Smile are committed to providing state-of-the-art, 21st century dentistry, and in doing so, move towards practicing metal-less dentistry.
There are several things inherently challenging with an old-fashioned porcelain fused to metal crown (PFM):
- Some people have metal allergies.
- Metals blacken with time, and are unattractive.
- The black metal must be opaqued to hide it’s color – natural looking translucency is very difficult to achieve.
- Black lines are often visible at the gum line at the crown’s edge
Today’s All-Ceramic crowns are just as strong, if not stronger than their metal predecessor. Allergic reactions are virtually unheard of. The fit, durability and beauty of today’s All-Ceramic crowns, make them the choice of tooth restoration at Art of the Smile.
