All-Ceramic Dental Crowns – Manchester, CT

Beautiful, Durable Tooth Repair

Dental crowns can be constructed out of various materials, including gold, silver, stainless steel, and various alloys. For many years, dentists always favored metal crowns due to their outstanding strength. However, metal crowns do come with some disadvantages, among which is the fact that they do not work well with the natural color of the teeth around them. At First Line Dental, we are proud to offer a more aesthetically pleasing solution: all-ceramic dental crowns.

Why Choose First Line Dental for All-Ceramic Crowns?

How Do All-Ceramic Dental Crowns Work?

The process of placing an all-ceramic dental crown is similar to the process for placing a metal crown. First, your dentist will examine your teeth to determine whether a crown is the best treatment option for you. If it is, they will prepare the tooth by removing a bit of enamel; this is necessary to ensure that the tooth will fit well beneath its restoration.

Then, our team will take an impression of the prepared tooth and the surrounding area. You will wear a temporary crown while a dental laboratory uses the impression, along with notes from your dentist, to fabricate the crown. When it is ready, you will return to our office for a second appointment so we can permanently attach it to your tooth.

Why Would I Choose a Ceramic Crown Over a Metal One?

Ceramic dental crowns may cost a bit more than metal crowns. However, many patients find that the aesthetic and health benefits they offer are well worth the cost. If you are getting a crown to support your oral health (rather than just to improve your teeth’s aesthetics), it is likely that your dental insurance will cover a portion of its cost. You may also be eligible for financing through CareCredit.
