All Porcelain Restorations
Years ago, in order to create a crown strong enough to resist breakage there had to be a metal framework. However, it is well known that the most beautiful crown for a tooth without question is the one made of all-porcelain or all-ceramic. The only way to achieve this is by using restorations made of pure porcelain. With recent developments in technology, porcelain strengths have increased without sacrifices in aesthetics. Additionally, bonding technology allows dentists to bond these beautiful, strong, and durable ceramics directly to the teeth with no visible metal framework.
Here at Homestead Dental, we have almost completely replaced the use of porcelain over metal crowns with the use of all-porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays. If you are interested in replacing your existing metal or porcelain over metal crowns with more aesthetic all-porcelain crowns let Dr. Chakalov know at your appointment. We will be glad to discuss your options and lead you to your new beautiful and long lasting smile.
