Ceramic Crowns

Advanced Crown Esthetics

What are All-Ceramic Crowns?

Before we start talking about all-ceramic crowns, it’s important
that you understand exactly what a “regular” crown is first. For a quick refresher, visit our crowns page.

All-ceramic crowns, also known as “Porcelain Crowns” are dental crowns that are made entirely of ceramic-based materials. Whereas traditional crowns are usually PFM crowns (porcelain-fused-to-metal), all-ceramic crowns are metal-free restorations that have much better esthetic properties compared to their PFM counterparts.

How are ceramic crowns different?

The main difference between ceramic crowns and metal crowns is esthetics, and we use ceramic crowns mostly in the anterior (front of the mouth) where esthetics matter most.  We commonly use Zirconia-based ceramics,  lithium disilicate (eMax ), and Empress (leucite glass) depending upon the clinical situation and the esthetic requirements.

The other difference, of course is the material, and there are different types of ceramic crown material, some of which are preferred for certain clinical situations.

Should I have a ceramic crown placed

If you need a crown in the front of your mouth where esthetics are critical, then yes, a ceramic crown would be the preferred option.

  • The assistant was a wonderful woman very informative in conversation and the dentist was a great man very open to questions and doesn’t seem like he’s just making a pay check seems like he’s really trying to make a difference.

  • The staff were very friendly.. They went over my treatment plan in detail with me and did not try to push anything on me . This is the most comfortable I have felt in a dental office.

  • Great dental office! Everyone was super nice. The assistant and hygienist were absolutely amazing. And the dentist himself was nice, compassionate & very understanding. I really wish I knew the name of the assistant, I really really enjoyed her. She was new to the office but knowledgeable of the field and very caring. She was just awesome! If you need a dentist in the Dallas area, you should look no further than Dallas Dental, there is really no reason to do so
