When is a metal-ceramic crown recommended?
The metal-ceramic crown is a reliable method of tooth replacement that has been used for a long time. Many people choose it primarily because of its price / value ratio. The base of the metal-ceramic crown is formed by a metal frame, to which natural porcelain is applied in layers, in order to make the replacement as lifelike as possible. The metal-free, all-ceramic version is called a pressed ceramic crown.
It is a perfect choice in the chewing zone, but it can also be chosen in the front areas, although today more and more people are choosing metal-free zirconia porcelain or pressed ceramic crowns to the visible area.
A metal-ceramic crown is completed in a relatively short time, so there is no need to wait weeks for a beautiful smile. If you don’t want to spend a day without replacement, we will make a temporary replacement for you!
