Did you know there is an alternative to traditional metal crowns? Typically, crowns are composed of a metal core with a ceramic or porcelain outer layer that is fused to this core. This results in the crown have a noticeable black line near the gum line.

However, thanks to the latest advancements within the dental industry, it is now possible for patients to have a crown that is metal free. These crowns have a metal free core that closely mimics the appearance of natural teeth; eliminating the black line near the gum line, without sacrificing the overall strength and integrity of the crown. To learn more and explore whether this technique can be incorporated into your treatment plan, please call Dr. Irwin’s office at 973-667-1567.
