However, metal-supported porcelain crowns are not often used to replace front teeth, as they do not transmit light effectively. When designing a new smile for our patients we recommend veneers with higher permeability and more natural appearance such as zirconium and ‘E-Max’ for these anterior teeth.
The dental technologies available to us in our in-house laboratory allow us to create high-quality dental coatings over the metal alloy substructure of the crown. This is achieved using a fine spray for coating the metal before being baked in a high-temperature oven. The result is a very durable finish that will harmonize with the patient’s natural teeth.
