Crown and bridge treatment reverses the negative impact of missing teeth in a variety of ways:
Usage of ceramic in making dental crowns is a break through in dentistry. Dental Porcelain is a kind of ceramic and is used in fabricating dental crown and bridges. Main advantage is, its white colour which makes it similar to natural tooth.
There are two types of ceramic crowns namely Porcelain Fused to Metal crowns and All Ceramic crowns.
Porcelain fused metal crowns in common terminology called as metal ceramic crowns have a metal shell/core on which, is fused a veneer of porcelain. They were considered as gold standard for repair of damaged teeth and they have ruled dentistry for several decades.
In All Ceramic Crowns,the entire thickness of the crown is made out of porcelain. These type of crowns are also mentioned as Metal free crowns and are most bio-compatible type of crowns.
