If you have broken or cracked teeth, your Waterford Family dentist may suggest crowns to restore your teeth. For decades, the standard in dentistry for crown and bridge restoration materials has been porcelain-fused-to-metal. The framework for the dental crown was produced in metal and then covered with a porcelain layer. While these crowns function perfectly, they may leave a gray-black line along the gum-line.
With the evolution of ceramic materials, dental patients now have options. Metal-free framework, beneath the porcelain, gives excellent aesthetic qualities to make the final restoration natural looking. Contact us for more information about metal-free crowns.
