Until now, ceramic crowns are known as the most effective means for restoring the natural appearance of teeth and their functionality. Dental crowns are also known to be used to clear out tooth discoloration. 

Ceramic crowns are known as prosthetic replacements. They are made to be permanently fixated into dental implants and their goal is to restore the lost aesthetic and function of your teeth. They are mostly used by patients that have had very bad tooth damage, which cannot be fixed with simple fillings or when there is a weak tooth by cavities due to some kind of endodontic treatment or deterioration of the prosthetic replacement.  Ceramic crowns can be used to create rotated or crooked teeth. The material of these crowns is chosen by the dentist, in order to reach the results that you will request. 

Who is the Right Candidate for Metal-Ceramic Crown Treatment?

The patients who usually need to use ceramic crowns are the ones that have no issues beyond the cosmetics. Someone who has a broken or cracked tooth, but still has the tooth root can also use dental crowns.

  • Proper bone density – In order to place implants, it makes great importance to have good bone density. This is necessary, as a sufficient amount of bone is essential to support the implant effectively.
