Porcelain crowns have come a long way. The same way as dental fillings have. We offer the most common type of porcelain crowns, witch are porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns, where the metal part is covered by the porcelain. This type of crowns have been available for decades, and are still the most common type of crowns.
All porcelain crowns, are an excellent choice, they are mostly used for anterior teeth because of cosmetic purposes. E max crowns (all porcelain) have a certain “translucency” that imitates the same type of translucency of a natural tooth, without having to deal with the greyish “hue” that porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns often create between gum and crown.
Zirconia crowns are the most popular and durable all porcelain crowns. There use is aimed at back teeth, but their application is for both back and front teeth. Zirconium oxide (Zirconia) has been used for artificial hip or knee joints for many years. In this field it has proven its extreme durability with the highest biological tolerance.
