Metal Free Crowns
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns.
Drs. Baxter and Marshall use the revolutionary BruxZir Solid Zironia which is a monolithic zirconia crown, bridge, screw retained implant crown, inlay or onlay with no porcelain overlay. For decades the standard in dentistry for crown and bridge restoration materials has been the PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metal). The framework for the dental crown was produced in metal and then covered with a porcelain layer.
Now with the evolution of all ceramic materials and their higher esthetic qualities, dental patients have options. Metal free framework beneath the porcelain gives excellent aesthetic qualities to make the final restoration extremely natural looking.
Patients benefit from the BruxZir crowns since they are made of solid zirconia with no porcelain overlay and they are glazed to a smooth surface to reduce plaque accumulation.
