Ceramic with Metal Base for Crowns & Bridges
Ceramic or Porcelain fused to metal is the classic type of crowns & bridges.
- Excellent function
- They have a metal substructure and require on opaque below the porcelain. This can make translucency of natural teeth difficult to replicate.
- Occasionally a darker line will be visible at the edge of the crown, near to your gum when it recedes with age.
- Since the ceramic is layered on the metal substructure, ceramic chipping is a frequent complication.
