The most common crown restoration placed today utilizes a metal lining with a coating of porcelain.
These restorations are not as natural-looking in appearance because light is not able to pass through porcelain-metal crowns as it does with a natural tooth. The result is an opaque or flat looking tooth. These types of traditional crowns can also leave a dark or gray line next to the gum line. Our talented team is proud to offer the latest in dental restorations, a natural-looking alternative: all-ceramic, non-metal crowns! With these modern restorations you will notice the “life-like” appearance that mimic natural teeth and do not produce the black gum line so common with porcelain-metal crowns.
