All Ceramic Crowns

Porcelain crowns or “caps” are sometimes used in our practice today. Because the enamel has to be totally removed for a cap, the more conservative porcelain veneer or onlay is generally the treatment of choice. However, when teeth are badly broken or replacement crowns are needed, porcelain crowns are the recommended treatment. Oliverie Dental prefers to use all-porcelain crowns over crowns made of porcelain fused to metal, especially in the aesthetic zone.

The all-porcelain crowns are more aesthetic, and do not have the ugly black line at the gumline. The all-porcelain crown can be made to match the light-transmitting properties of natural teeth and will not stain or change color and is very strong.
