Crowns And Bridges (All-Ceramic Metal Free Crowns, Porcelain Fused To Metal Crowns, Gold Crowns)
All Ceramic Metal-Free Crowns
These crowns are ideally suited to people who prefer something which has a natural appearance as they are the most cosmetically pleasing crowns.
The biggest advantage of placing an all-ceramic crown instead of other types has to do with appearance as it has superior esthetics.
These crowns are ideally suited when patients prefer something which has a natural appearance where metal compatibility issues exist.
They may be more suitable for people with metal allergies as there is no risk of an allergic reaction or sensitivity to hot or cold foods.
The average life of a crown is around 10 years. The most important factor affecting the lifespan of any restorative treatment is oral hygiene of the patient.
