Benefits of Choosing All-Ceramic Crowns
- With quality ceramic materials, our team is able to create a finished product that looks and feels virtually identical when compared with a natural tooth. In fact, these restorations achieve the same light-reflecting characteristics appearing appropriately glossy alongside the rest of your smile.
- With porcelain-fused-metal crowns, there’s a risk that a noticeable metal band will form over the tooth eventually ruining their natural look. This outcome is nonexistent when using all-ceramic alternatives.
- Some patients are allergic or overly sensitive to the metals found in traditional dental crowns, which makes them difficult to enjoy properly. All-ceramic crowns don’t contain any of these kinds of materials, which means that everyone can enjoy them.
- Some patients experience oral discomfort after having metallic crowns placed, and the materials can be damaging to natural tissue and other existing restorations. Our all-ceramic crowns are always polished and glazed so they match the natural feel of existing teeth as closely as possible resulting in a more enjoyable experience overall.
The Treatment Process
All-ceramic crowns are created and placed in a very similar manner to traditional crowns. After cleaning and reshaping the tooth to accommodate the new restoration, our Plattsburgh team will capture detailed images of it with our state-of-the-art iTero technology and send that information to our trusted dental lab. In the meantime, we’ll provide a temporary crown so your tooth is protected and you can still enjoy a full, functional smile while we wait for the finished restoration.
Once we’re received your new, lifelike crown at True North Dental Group, we’ll make any necessary adjustments and ensure that you’re completely satisfied with the result before cementing it in place. Our goal is always to exceed your expectations with the work we do!
