The Facts About All Porcelain and Cubic Zirconia Crowns
- Jun 04, 2018 -
Dental crowns (sometimes referred to as “caps”) are the strongest, most durable types of tooth restorations we make. Crowns completely encase a weak or broken tooth. With this method, there are no weak spots in the tooth to break. While not indestructible, they are extremely strong and reliable.
Over the last 10 years, the materials used to make crowns have changed. For decades, we used porcelain fused to a metal substructure. While song, they were not as natural looking as some of the newer material. Cubic Zirconia has recently been found to be a highly esthetic, extremely strong material to make crowns out of. We use porcelain/metal, all porcelain, and cubic zirconia crowns as the situation dictates to provide a very strong, good looking tooth restoration.
