With the enhancement of technology and the availability of better materials, metal-based crowns are a thing of the past. With today’s newer ceramics one can achieve excellent aesthetic outcomes while not compromising on strength and longevity of the crowns.
Full porcelain crowns are a great choice for a variety of clinical scenarios. A crown is needed when there is extensive structural damage to your tooth. A crown covers the tooth all around and restores the tooth in form and function all while maintaining excellent aesthetic outcomes.
This is achieved usually in 2 visits, with the first visit involving the preparation of your tooth and temporization with a temporary crown. A digital impression is taken and sent to the lab to fabricate a restoration, which is seated at the second visit.
