New, better and improved!!!   Traditionally when a crown was needed where aesthetics and strength were a concern, porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns were our #1 choice.  The strength came from the metal, and the porcelain stacked on top of the metal gave the crown it's tooth color.  PFM crowns get their strength from the underlying metal.  Unfortunately, as the crown ages, the metal can show, or on a bright sunny day, when the light hits the tooth, you can see the difference.   Have you ever noticed a tooth that has a "grey line" along the gum line?  That may be the metal showing through underneath the porcelain.

IPS e.max Crowns

We now have another option to offer our patients. E.max crowns are  designed to give the strength of a traditional PFM, WITHOUT the metal.  Here is a case we recently did at Seasons of Smiles Dental.
