Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns Pictures

One way to tell if a dentist is really passionate about appearance-related dentistry is what kind of crowns they prefer. Dental schools teach doing porcelain fused to metal crowns. But all-porcelain crowns are so much more beautiful and natural-looking, dentists who are passionate about doing beautiful dentistry will be opposed to using porcelain fused to metal crowns for front teeth.

The following pictures of Leann show the differences between porcelain fused to metal crowns and all-porcelain crowns. This work was done by Dr. Sam Sadati, a mynewsmile.com network dentist in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Even though all ceramic is the only crown I recommend for front teeth, I do not recommend asking your dentist to do this kind of crown unless the dentist has suggested it as an option. All porcelain crowns generally require special bonding techniques that are unfamiliar to many dentists, and we have heard many unfortunate stories of dentists who thought they could meet the expectations of their patients who requested special cosmetic techniques, but they didn’t know how to do them properly.
