E-MAX Porcelain Crown:
Without question, the E-max dental crown is the most aesthetic type of crown there is. They are mostly placed on front teeth.
Using highly pressed ceramics and layering techniques, the natural tooth-like translucency of the E-Max dental crown can match the beauty and appearance of your own teeth almost flawlessly. At CDS we endeavor to utilise E-max dental crowns where possible as they are the ultimate in dental cosmetics. Ideal for front teeth, smile line.
Zirconia Porcelain Crown:
This all ceramic dental crown is highly aesthetic and very strong.
It’s zirconia base marries optimum aesthetics with superior strength to provide a superb cosmetic dental crown that can withstand the strongest forces of your bite. Zirconia dental crowns are ideal where aesthetics are of primary concern but extra strength may be required. Excellent option for front teeth or back teeth.
Porcelain Bonded Dental Crown:
A bonded dental crown provides a warm aesthetic finish with high strength. This crown requires slightly less tooth removal and so is kinder to your underlying tooth. There is a thin metal layer underlying the porcelain which provides strength but does not allow for the natural translucency of all-ceramic crowns. Porcelain bonded dental crowns are ideal for back teeth.
Gold dental Crowns:
These dental crowns are the “gold” standard in strength, tooth preservation, and marginal fit. Although not tooth-colored, a gold dental crown is superior in that your tooth requires minimal preparation and enamel removal prior to fitting. They have excellent longevity and are functionally superior. Gold dental crowns are ideal for back teeth where aesthetics are not a concern but fit, strength, and longevity are a priority.
