What are Metal-Free Dental Crowns?
Metal-free crowns, also known as a dental “cap”, are an alternative to traditional metal crowns. They are made of ceramic or porcelain and matched to the color of your natural teeth. They are the most durable crowns available today. They wear incredibly well and can withstand almost all biting and chewing forces. They are very resistant to cracking and chipping, and therefore make an ideal choice for crowning teeth that take a lot of bite force. All porcelain crowns are smooth and translucent, making them an excellent choice for teeth. Non-metallic all porcelain crowns are safer for people with metal allergies and will not cause an immune response in metal sensitive patients.
How are Porcelain Dental Crowns Used?
Non-metallic dental crowns are used to restore shape, size, and strength of the teeth. In addition, they can be used to protect a tooth from further damage. They are also used to improve the appearance of a tooth by changing its color or opacity. Porcelain is often used to make these crowns because it is strong and durable. Porcelain is also resistant to staining and can be made to match the color of your natural teeth.
Dental crowns can correct:
- Misshapen teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth with gaps
- A missing tooth paired with a dental implant or dental bridge
What are the Benefits of Non-Metallic Crowns vs. Traditional Metal Crowns?
Non-metallic crowns offer many benefits over traditional metal crowns, including:
- They do not conduct heat or cold, which can cause cracking
- They are very durable
- Allergic reactions are less likely to occur in people with metal allergies
- They do not contain mercury which can be toxic to your overall oral health
- They do not cause irritation or recession of the gum line
- They do not cause tooth discoloration
- They better match the color of your natural tooth
Metal restorations often do more harm than good. If you currently have a metal restoration, we can carefully and safely remove it and replace it with a metal-free option.
What is the Procedure for Getting Metal-Free Dental Crowns?
Your dentist will examine your teeth and x-rays to determine if metal-free dental crowns are the best choice for you. If metal-free dental crowns are suitable for you, your dentist will prepare your teeth for crowns. This involves removing a small part of the tooth enamel to make room for crowns.
Your dentist will then take impressions of your teeth and send them to a laboratory where the custom metal-free dental crowns will be made. Once the dental crowns are ready, you will return to your dentist’s office to have them placed. The crowns will be cemented into place with biocompatible cement and will stay on your teeth permanently.
Caring for Your New Dental Crown
It is essential to take proper care of your dental crowns to ensure they last long. Here are some helpful tips for caring for them:
- Brush your teeth twice a day
- Floss daily
- Visit your dentist regularly for routine check-ups and cleanings
- Avoid chewing on hard objects such as ice or hard candy
- Avoid smoking and other tobacco products
