Here is more about why Dr. Jergins chooses to use ceramic dental crowns:
The difference in an all ceramic crown and traditional porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns is night and day. Literally!
With a traditonal PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metal) crown, light will not pass through the restoration due to its metal component. This creates crowns that look like — well, like crowns. While this may not be a problem in back teeth, for front teeth these crowns can give an unnatural appearance to the smile.
An all-ceramic crown, on the other hand, allows light to pass through it just like natural teeth. The result is a smile that looks like nature made it. And unlike metal-containing crowns, all-ceramic crowns will never result in an unsightly black line around the gums.
For a smile that looks the way nature created it, choose all-ceramic crowns.
