It happens to most of us at one point or another: A tooth wears down, chips or breaks. When this occurs, we want to repair the tooth so that it will look better and feel sturdy. A dental crown will reinforce and strengthen a weakened tooth. An all-ceramic crown, made of zirconia or glass, will reinforce and strengthen a weakened tooth while offering the best, most natural look.
All-ceramic crowns are much more aesthetic than other crowns that are made of porcelain fused to metal. With all-ceramic crowns, you’ll be primed to show off your delightful smile.
Ceramic is naturally translucent. As such, all-ceramic crowns can be constructed to match the light-transmitting properties of natural teeth. They will blend easily with the rest of your natural teeth.
Another wonderful benefit of all ceramic-crowns is their lack of visibility. With porcelain crowns fused with metal, the darkness of the metal will be visible along the gum line. With all-ceramic crowns, the tooth-colored, light-transmitting ceramic will sit right against the gum line. The crown and gums will integrate just as a natural tooth and gums would come together.
All-ceramic crowns are made from ceramic that is so smooth that you will not feel the difference between natural teeth and the crowned teeth. Additionally, the crowns are made so well that you will not be able to feel the margins of the crown (the portion of the crown that meets natural tooth structure) with your tongue.
You will, of course, want crowns that remain strong over the years. All-ceramic crowns are very durable. They are, essentially, solid protective caps fused to your teeth, providing a new outer surface for your naturally weakened teeth. All-ceramic crowns will last for many years to come.
