The Benefits of Choosing Metal-Free Dental Crowns From Your Local Dentist

Metal Free Dental Crowns in Calgary AB Area

Metal-free dental crowns, typically crafted from durable dental porcelain, have gained popularity as a modern and aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional crowns that incorporate metal components. Dental crowns are utilized for many different purposes. They are great at protecting teeth that have been weakened by decay or a root canal treatment. Patients in the Calgary, Alberta, area seek quality dental crowns from Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma and the team at Lake Chaparral Dental Care.

The Benefits of Porcelain Dental Crowns

These crowns are crafted entirely from high-quality porcelain materials, offering several advantages:

  1. Natural Aesthetics: Metal-free dental crowns closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth. They exhibit translucency and colour similar to natural enamel, making them virtually indistinguishable from surrounding teeth. This aesthetic advantage is significant for visible teeth in the smile zone
  2. Biocompatibility: Unlike metal-based crowns, metal-free alternatives are biocompatible, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions or sensitivities. This makes them suitable for a broader range of patients, including those with metal allergies
  3. No Dark Lines or Margins: Traditional crowns with metal substructures often exhibit a dark line at the gum line over time. Metal-free crowns eliminate this issue, providing a seamless and natural appearance at the margin where the crown meets the gum
  4. Preservation of Tooth Structure: Metal-free crowns allow more of the natural tooth to be retained. Because less of the healthy tooth structure is removed, your tooth will retain strength and also be healthier over the long run
  5. Durability: Advances in available materials have enhanced the strength and durability of metal-free crowns. While they may not be as resilient as metal-based crowns in certain situations, they offer sufficient strength for most dental applications, including molars
  6. Reduced Temperature Sensitivity: Metal-free crowns are less conductive to heat and cold than metal crowns, reducing temperature sensitivity. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with sensitive teeth
  7. Versatility: Metal-free crowns are versatile and can be used with various dental restorations, including bridges. They are suitable for both front and back teeth, providing a comprehensive solution for cosmetic and restorative dentistry
  8. Digital Impressions: The fabrication of metal-free crowns often involves digital impressions, eliminating the need for traditional putty impressions. This enhances precision and efficiency in the crown-making process
