In general, we adopt a metal free policy wherever possible. This is especially the case at the front of the mouth where aesthetics are highly important. We now routinely use all ceramic crowns for front teeth. The great advantage of these crowns is that with no metal, the aesthetics are excellent and there is no issue with the dreaded 'black' line visible at the gum level. The photograph below shows a super close up view of some front teeth. One of them has an all ceramic crown. Can you tell which one?
In the old days, tooth crowns were very obvious and stood out a mile. Not any more. We are able to provide crowns that blend in naturally so that no one will know it is not your own tooth. The example above is an all ceramic crown called Empress E max, the most aesthetic crown available. We refuse to use anything but the best in terms of materials and methods to ensure that we offer the very best dental care. This is a guarantee. Please call us if you require new crowns or would like to eliminate those black lines. We can help!
