Have you ever seen crowns that have a dark line around the gum line? It makes for a very unsightly appearance and is due to metal lining present under the crown.
Metal lined crowns were used more frequently in the past as strong porcelains were not available. Modern materials allow full porcelain crowns to be made with similar strength and durability to metal lines crowns. Full ceramic crowns allow transmission of light and are a lot more "tooth- like". Therefore they are a far more aesthetic option.
At Torrensville Dentalcare, we ONLY use ceramic crowns made in the best laboratories in Adelaide. we do not send your work overseas. When indicated you can be referred to Dr Amrein's city practice where a crown can be made for you while you wait. This means no need for moulds, temporaries and second visits.
