Crowns are caps that cover, strengthen, and protect teeth that have had large fillings, cracks, or root canals. In the past, crowns required a metal structure or framework to support the surrounding porcelain. For this reason, crowns often showed an unsightly band of metal margin.
All-porcelain crowns are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. No metal margins!
All-porcelain (ceramic) crowns are made to match the same color and translucency of natural tooth enamel. All-porcelain crowns are as strong as any alternative and can be expected to last for many years.

At Lavelle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Prospect, KY, our patients are very satisfied with the unparalleled esthetics of all-porcelain crowns. All-ceramic crowns are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Your family and friends will never see any metal margins, because there are none!
