This cosmetic dental restoration to completely cover a tooth being restored is a metal-free option, whose entire thickness is made 100% of ceramic, a glass-like substance, such as porcelain or zirconium.
The biggest advantage of placing Feldespathic crowns has to do with appearance. They provide the best natural color of all the crowns, what means that there will be no black line at gum level with the new tooth.
Although metal crowns have their uses in the back of the mouth for its durability, all-ceramic crowns can be the best choice for restoring a front tooth, due to its superior aesthetic combined with high biocompatibility, and even increasing strength.
Feldspathic Crowns restore the function and comfort of an injured tooth, look completely natural, and with good oral hygiene they may last more than fifteen years.
These prostheses are proven to be as strong and durable as metal porcelain crowns. They offer patients a long lasting and natural looking solution.
The process and the procedure is similar to that of any other crown. The dentist recommends this type of crown when a tooth is broken or badly decayed or damaged in such a way that a filling is not strong enough to support the tooth. Patients also prefer this free-metal option for cosmetic enhancement.
