In our dental practice we have an assortment of ceramics and porcelains from various dental laboratories. Our crowns and bridges are completely free of metal (you are free to request an alternative if you prefer).
Ceramic and porcelain are often confused. We generally choose ceramic for its strength and porcelain for aesthetics.
Crowns or bridges on molars require strong material that can withstand great pressure. For those towards the front of the mouth, appearance is also of great importance and crowns or bridges should be indistinguishable from adjacent teeth.
Our dentists can also combine materials by baking porcelain onto ceramic. This results in a double-layered crown instead of the usual single-layer.
We can help you choose which crown or bridge is most suitable for you based on the condition of your teeth, your preferences and your financial means.
