Esthetic dental crowns
There are many different types of materials that we can use when a patient needs to have a dental crown placed. In clinical situations where esthetics are paramount, we are able to take advantage of newer ceramic improvements and fabricate what are known as all-ceramic crowns. Ceramic crowns are lifelike and have coloring and light reflecting properties that more resemble natural teeth. Plus, because the crowns are all-ceramic and have no metal, you will never see "black lines" around the edges.
Ceramics vs. PFMs
One of the disadvantages of PFM crowns is that because they are built upon a layer of metal, they are not the ideal solution for crowns in highly-esthetic areas such as the front of the mouth.
After sometime, the metal begins to show and a dark line maybe seen a the end of the gum, making it appear as if it has tooth decay or a cavity.
Ceramic crowns will remain esthetic in the front of the mouth for a long time.
Strength of ceramics
All porcelain (ceramic) crowns are as strong or stronger than traditional PFM restorations - so there is no compromise with esthetics and strength.
