Metal-free dental crowns are a modern and quite popular type of dental prosthesis among patients. This structure is created from a ceramic material with high mechanical resistance. However, the use of certain metallic components is not totally excluded. The main advantage of using metal-free ceramic is the high aesthetics of the final installation result.

Types of metal-free ceramic:

- Based on an aluminium oxide structure.
- Pressed ceramic without metal.
Ceramic dental crowns
Nowadays, ceramic dental crowns have become one of the most aesthetic types of orthopaedic structures. They can be placed both in the frontal area of the teeth (the smile area), as well as in the area of the teeth in charge of the patient’s chewing functions.
Ceramic dental crowns are made from a material that does not contain harmful substances, does not absorb external odours, does not absorb dyes or bacteria. Ceramic crowns also do not emit harmful substances for the patient and are extremely durable.
The three main advantages of ceramic crowns:
- Excellent aesthetic result.
- Completely hypoallergenic material.
- High reliability.
The ceramic crowns in our ID Dent clinic have affordable prices and the final cost depends on certain steps such as: anaesthesia, dental treatment, the 3 dental impressions, the placement procedure of a temporary crown (if it is required), the elaboration of the ceramic crown in a laboratory and its fixation in the oral cavity of the patient.
Porcelain dental crowns offer the same advantages as veneers, but we can see a certain differences between them. Veneers only cover the frontal area of the tooth, while the crown replaces the entire outer area of the tooth up to the gum.
Porcelain is used in crowns, which becomes slightly thicker than in veneers and is fused with a metal alloy so that the crown can become more solid and secure. Since the ceramic crown covers the entire tooth, more teeth need to be sanded prior to placement of it.
Zirconia dental crowns
Zirconium (zirconium dioxide) is a metal oxide similar to ceramic, but with different properties. Therefore, we should emphasize that it is mainly characterized by offering much greater resistance than other types of materials.
It is an oxide that was discovered relatively recently and has been used for the last 10 years with excellent results.
At ID Dent dental clinic, we offer all types of metal-free ceramics at affordable prices. Highly qualified doctors work in our clinic and they take advanced training programmes annually, also attending several seminars to improve their skills in order to provide patients with a beautiful and healthy smile!
