This solution is used for teeth weakened by a large number of fillings or in other circumstances which preclude the application of veneers. The preparation of the tooth to be covered with such a crown requires the tooth to be ground to make space for the restoration. The restoration may consist of:
Porcelain fused to metal (non-precious or gold), which is a very safe structure, proved by long-term use; however, opacity of the metal portion reduces the possibility of complete restoration of the properties of the natural tooth. The application of precious metal alloy reduces build-up of the bacterial plaque around the crown. Ceramics that provide high aesthetic advantages allow the natural tooth properties, e.g. translucency of cutting edge or similar abrasiveness, to be regained.
