Dental Crowns

All Ceramic Crowns

Dental crowns are a great way to strengthen a tooth that is severely broken down. Crowns are made from ceramics, metal, or a combination of ceramics and metal (PFM).  Due to advances in material and techniques, Dr. Johnson recommends most dental crowns be made of a very strong all ceramic material called Zirconia.  These metal free crowns can be fabricated in two separate ways.  For maximum strength, solid zirconia crowns are best for chewing.  Layered zirconia is best for front teeth where maximum aesthetics is desired.  In general, modern all ceramic crowns are very strong, have no metal, and give the most aesthetic results.  If you think you are in need of a dental crown and would like to discuss your options please Request an Appointment.

Traditional Dental Crowns

On occasion there is an indication for a crown to be made of material other than zirconia or ceramic. These include materials such as Gold, base metal, or the traditional Porcelain fused to metal (PFM).
