Dental Crowns Parramatta
- Emax Crown
This is currently one of the most used dental ceramic in the world for its strength and aesthetic properties. Emax can be modified to enhance its aesthetic properties via cutback layering, staining, or simply just match adjacent teeth’s colour. Our in house CAD/CAM machine can produce such crown in a single visit minimising your time away from your busy lifestyle.
- Porcelain Fused Metal Crown
Dental ceramic can be fused to a thinner metal coping to mimic the aesthetic of a tooth. This type of crown is still the most popular type of crown used in Australia, but some significant drawbacks have led to its gradual decline in preference amongst dentists. The combined thickness of metal coping and porcelain meant that the crown will either be quite bulky, or more tooth structure need be cut away to accommodate the thicker crown layer. Further, the porcelain is prone to cracking and wear which overtime exposes the metal coping and becomes less aesthetic. Of course, chipping of porcelain is simply an aesthetic drawback and in less aesthetic demanding situation this is still a suitable option.
- Zirconia Crown
Zirconia is an extremely rigid and strong ceramic and can withstand most dental functions with little risk of fracture. Aesthetic is adequate but due to the nature of material (metal crystal oxide) it exudes a slight metallic tinge and also is insufficiently translucent in aesthetic demanding situation. Material advancement is improving its translucency but strength is also compromised and may not be sufficient to mask out dark underlying tooth structure.
- Gold Crown
Gold alloy as a dental restorative material is extremely resilient yet wears at a rate similar to tooth structure. If not for the fact that it does not look like a tooth, it remains one of the most popular choice amongst restorative dentists and specialists.
