Creating a beautiful smile using dental porcelain crowns
Dental (porcelain) crowns are constructed to restore teeth that are heavily filled, discoloured, broken or misaligned. Crowning involves removing a little more of the tooth than for treatment like veneers and replacing it with a colour matched porcelain 'cap' to mimic the natural tooth. Old crowns were traditionally made using a metal substructure which accounts for the black lines you often see around the top of the crown where it meets the gum area.
This metal substructure also makes a crown look false, as light is unable to pass through the crown creating an artificial look. New all porcelain crowns made by the latest CAD/CAM technology, allow light to pass through the crown and tooth so it is reflected naturally and ensures a natural life like appearance. As there is no metal content present, there is no corrosive black line at the margin making it more bio - compatible and aesthetic but still incredibly strong.
What our patients say
I completed an extensive course of cosmetic dental surgery involving a total of 17 porcelain crowns. All treatments were carried out efficiently and the end result exceeded my expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Centre For Advanced Dentistry - Mrs S. O.
