Non-metal, porcelain crowns

Non-metal porcelain crowns, also known as all-ceramic or all-porcelain crowns, are dental restorations used to cover a damaged or decayed tooth. They are called non-metal because they do not contain any metal material, making them a popular option for those who are allergic to metals or are concerned about the aesthetic appearance of metal crowns.

What is the process?

The process for getting a non-metal porcelain crown typically involves two appointments. During the first appointment, our dentist in Miami, FL, will prepare the tooth by removing any decay or damage and shaping it to fit the crown. We will take a digital impression of the tooth to avoid any problems with gag reflex and send it to a dental laboratory where the crown will be fabricated. In the meantime, the patient will wear a temporary crown to protect the tooth. At the second appointment, the temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent non-metal porcelain crown will be permantently cemented into place.

What are the benefits?

Who are the eligible candidates?

Non-metal porcelain crowns are ideal for those who have a damaged or decayed tooth that cannot be repaired with a filling, inlay, or onlay. They are also a good option for those who have a visible front tooth that is chipped or discolored. Non-metal porcelain crowns can also be used to cover a dental implant or as part of a dental bridge.
