You can now have natural looking strong metal free crowns.
In the past we used to have a inner layer of metal in crowns with porcelain on top to ensure they would be strong enough for the job, unfortunately this meant that sometimes you could see the metal edge and that the crowns would look more dull in appearance as they do not let light through them like natural teeth.
Now however, thanks to modern dentistry and technology we can have metal free crowns which are milled from a solid porcelain block or Zirconia crowns which are just as strong as crowns with metal in them and we have more advance cements allowing them to be made to mimic natural teeth better.
If you want a more natural appearance then metal free crowns are the ones for you.
