All-Porcelain Dental Crowns

Thanks to the latest advanced technology, Artisan Dentistry can bond porcelain crowns directly to the teeth, creating a durable and aesthetic dental repair.

Years ago, porcelain crowns were fused to a metal framework for added strength. Thanks to the latest advanced material and technology, tank armor can be made out of porcelain, and dentists like Dr. Paul Mathew of Artisan Dentistry can bond porcelain crowns directly to the teeth, eliminating the need for metal, while still allowing for the strength necessary to hold up under the tremendous forces of chewing.

Today’s advanced porcelain crowns are made from pure porcelain, ceramic or aesthetic reinforced resins. While the durability of back teeth might still depend on a metal framework, porcelain for crowns that show on front teeth is far superior in creating an aesthetically pleasing smile.

In addition, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns have improved. With the use of porcelain fused to white zirconia, there is no grey line to find at the edge of the crown if your gums recede. In addition, zirconia is pure white, providing a primer for the porcelain and allowing for superior color matching.

Porcelain crowns are needed when:

  • A tooth is badly broken
  • The tooth has an existing large filling
  • There is a large area of tooth decay
  • A natural restoration is desired

When your porcelain crowns are created by a dentist skilled in the most advanced smile makeovers, no one will ever know. Dr. Mathew has the extensive training and experience you need to ensure the most beautiful smile with the most undetectable restorative work.

The Type of Crown That’s Right for You
Several excellent varieties of porcelain crowns are available, including:

Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal Crowns
Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns look very natural. However, they are limited by two distinct features:

  • Because of the metal framework supporting the crown, an opaquer covers the metal, so the restoration may not perfectly mimic the translucency of natural teeth.
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns show a dark line next to the gum as the gum recedes.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are stronger than all-porcelain crowns, making them suitable for back teeth where chewing forces require more strength.

High Noble Metals
The term “noble metal” indicates the metal content consists of gold, palladium, and/or platinum equal to or greater than 25%. High noble metal is a good quality ‘gold’ crown, but because it is fused to porcelain, the restoration perfectly matches your surrounding teeth.

Porcelain Fused to Zirconia
For beautiful, durable metal-free crowns and superior color matching, porcelain fused to zirconia is a great solution. Zirconia restorations are backed by 5+ years of proven clinical success. Zirconia restorations are crafted from translucent zirconia, a strong and durable dental ceramic. Dental bonding is used to affix the Zirconia restoration for a beautifully translucent, metal-free restorative solution for front or back crowns or bridges.

All Ceramic Crowns
The all ceramic crown, a variety of porcelain, is also called a CEREC crown, because it is not sent to a dental lab to be created, but can be milled in the dentist’s office using CEREC technology.

The Empress Crown
The Empress crown is a variation of all-porcelain made from Empress pressed ceramic material. Other ceramic materials include Procera, In-Ceram, and feldspathic porcelain. Each of these materials offers advantages and disadvantages, but you can be assured Dr. Mathew is familiar with these materials and will choose the best material for your dental crown.
