All-Ceramic Crowns & Bridges

Recents breakthrough in adhesives, combined with the development of stronger porcelain materials, allow us to make crowns & bridges entirely of porcelain which is healthier for your teeth and gums also giving a perfect natural lifelike look. All-Ceramic crowns are distinguished by their excellent aesthetics. Light is not only reflected, there is also real transparency as seen in natural teeth. This effect makes the all-porcelain crown perfect for use in anterior areas, whereby minor form and alignment corrections are also possible. A further advantage of the metal-free ceramic crown is the tooth-shaded margin, which need not be placed under the gum line. Thus, the crown margin does not irritate the gingival tissue and prevents gum recession.

Progressive development in ceramics brings forth ever stronger materials, such as zirconium ceramic. Therefore, it is now possible to fit metal-free porcelain crowns in the posterior area.

Advantages and disadvantages of metal-free full ceramic crowns:

  • True-to-nature, transparent aesthetics
  • Highly biocompatible, no allergic risk
  • Form and alignment correction possible
  • Larger degree of preparation needed
  • Fairly expensive
