Metal Free Crowns
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free
crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on
For decades the standard in dentistry for crown and bridge restoration materials
has been the PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metal). The framework for the dental crown
was produced in metal and then covered with a porcelain layer.
Now with the evolution of all ceramic materials and their higher esthetic
qualities, dental patients have options.
Metal free framework beneath the porcelain gives excellent aesthetic qualities to make
the final restoration extremely natural looking.
