They are precise in their fit as they are made by the cad cam technology i.e. computer aided designed and manufactured. They are of two types:
- The all ceramic zirconia crowns which are advised for the back teeth, as their strength is considered to be great for chewing.
- The alumins based all ceramic crowns usually come by the name Ipsemax. They are excellent in aesthetics and advised for the front teeth.

The Ipsemax material is also used for ceramic veneers which are used for complete “Smile Makeovers”.These are usually used when the teeth are stained, fractured or have gaps.
