All-Ceramic Dental Crowns
Many patients undergoing crown treatment today opting for all ceramic crowns chose either aluminous materials or zirconia. An all-ceramic crown has no need for a metal core support structure and may be created so that the material itself is less thick making it ideal for smaller spaces. The crown is made solely of ceramic. The absence of a metal core allows for better light transmission throughout the crown creating a higher quality esthetic. The ceramic materials used are quite durable and strong. However, caution should be taken so as not to chip or crack the restoration.
