Many of our dental crowns and bridges are made purely with biocompatible all ceramic materials. This is essential for use on the front teeth where aesthetics are vital. This is made possible with the advent of laser technology and computer generated images allowing for computer aided design and milling. (CAD-CAM)
Another technique is by using pressed ceramics which have a natural fluorescence allowing for beautiful restorations.
All ceramic crowns are also available for back teeth, which are virtually indestructible. These are made from zirconium.
The great advantage of these systems is that there is no metal substructure and hence the dreaded black line is a thing of the past. There is also no risk of any allergic reactions to the metal as the materials used are biocompatible.
This enables us to provide crowns and bridges which are natural, highly aesthetic and long lasting.
