WHAT ARE DENTAL CROWNS?
Dental crowns may be used for various reasons when a tooth has been severely decayed or cracked. As a result, a filling cannot strengthen a tooth sufficiently or replace enough of the tooth. Parts of a broken tooth are then held together by the crown.
Dental crowns can cover teeth that are significantly stained or malformed and improve aesthetics. Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns and, more recently, Metal-Free Zirconia crowns are two materials used to make dental crowns.
PORCELAIN FUSED TO METAL (PFM) CROWN
These are known as Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) Crowns because they are essentially metallic crowns on the inside that are covered in tooth-colored porcelain. Since a very long time ago, we at Inspire Dental have been leaders in the field of high-quality work in crown fabrication. We strongly encourage you to use our enormous experience to receive some of the exceptional work that is representative of our practice.
Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns offer a robust, long-lasting, and aesthetic treatment option. In addition, PFM crowns may be preferred for your posterior teeth because they may be more durable.
Making dental bridges, which can be used to replace missing teeth by using the support of adjacent teeth, has fallen down the list of preferred treatments for replacing missing teeth since the introduction of implants. However, there are still circumstances where we may be compelled to make bridges as a treatment option; in these cases, you would need to discuss the situation with our team to determine the necessity.
