Metal-free Crowns

Metal-free Crowns 

If you have a broken or cracked tooth, don't panic. You probably don't need to have it removed and replaced. Thanks to the advancements in tooth crown technology, the team at Riviera Dental Care can restore your smile with non-invasive procedures.

Why get a crown?

Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns.

Technology advancements

For decades the standard in dentistry for crown and bridge restoration materials has been the PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metal). The framework for the dental crown was produced in metal and then covered with a porcelain layer.

Now with the evolution of all ceramic materials and their higher esthetic qualities, dental patients have options. Metal free framework beneath the porcelain gives excellent aesthetic qualities to make the final restoration extremely natural looking.

Infection control

Riviera Dental Care and their team pay very close attention to infection control by following OSHA guidelines. The routine protocol consists of spraying and wiping with an antibacterial solution of all surfaces that come in contact with the staff and a patient before each patient. Use of disposable barriers on all handles and points of frequent contact, which are changed between patients. Hand washing stations are equipped with hand sanitizers. Personal protection items worn by the staff are either disposable or changed every day.
