Why a porcelain crown instead of a gold, porcelain fused to gold, or zirconia crown?
Porcelain crowns are the choice for front teeth due to their better aesthetic properties. They most naturally mimic the opacity and colour of a natural tooth. The older style of crown (porcelain fused to metal) eventually starts to show a thin black line at the gumline, whereas porcelain crowns do not.
Porcelain crowns are made from EMAX, or litium disilicate. It is a ceramic with both high compressive strength, but also very aesthetically superior.
At Pymble Dental Practice we partner with dental technicians based in Sydney using highest quality materials from Australia, Switzerland, Sweden and Germany. None of our laboratories outsource their work to cheaper companies in China or India, which can be the case for some dental technicians.
