All ceramic porcelain crowns are among the most aesthetic and beautiful crown treatment that a tooth can receive. Dr. Michael Mazaheri uses high quality all porcelain crowns fabricated at our local dental laboratory, or can fabricate the same crowns using our Cerec in house technology the same day which give the desired translucent look to the teeth. Restoring dentition with these types of crowns requires expertise and experience because using the incorrect preparation design, material and the wrong shade of cement can change the outcome of treatment due to the fact that their final color is influenced by the tooth under them. Dr. Mazaheri has restored 1000's of these crowns in the past 15 years are can guide you with your goals and desire to achieve the smile you always wanted without that black line at the gumline seen from other types of crowns.
Cosmetic Dental Crown
There are several different types of porcelain and techniques used to achieve the desired outcome.
Emax crowns are the newest form of all porcelain crowns and are replacing the traditional use of Porcelain Fused to Metal crowns (PFM) due to their esthetics and strength
Feldspathic porcelain is the most widely used type of porcelain in dentistry in the last 10 years
Empress crowns are highly esthetic and used for high end cosmetic makeovers such as porcelain veneers
Lava crown has a core structure made of translucent Zirconia material which is very commonly used in dentistry
Zirconia crowns are very strong and durable and can be layered with porcelain to look natural
Bruxir crowns are the new form of all porcelain crowns in which the entire crown is milled entirely from the Zirconia material and therefore extremely strong and durable
If you have allergy to certain metals these crowns are best suitable to restore damaged, misaligned, or discolored teeth. At Exceptional Dentistry we use all porcelain crowns for majority of our restorative procedures. If you are interested in this treatment please give us a call.
