Explanation of fused ceramic with metal dental crowns

A ceramic fused-to-metal dental crown is a type of dental restoration that covers a tooth to restore its size and shape and protects it from further damage. It is composed of metal alloy and ceramic material. The metal alloy component of the crown adds strength, allowing it to withstand pressure while chewing. The ceramic element guarantees excellent aesthetic benefits and allows the crown to blend in with the color of the natural teeth.

Questions and answers

The pros and cons of a ceramic fused-to-metal crown

Metal-Fused Ceramic Dental Crowns offer an ideal combination of strength and appearance. They are stronger and can withstand more pressure and are more aesthetically pleasing than metal alloy or gold alloy dental crowns. However, they do not offer the same level of strength as metal alloys.

When a metal-fused ceramic crown is recommended

Metal-fused ceramic dental crowns are used for a variety of reasons. Specifically, a dentist may recommend a fused-to-metal ceramic crown to address the following issues:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Worn out teeth
  • Teeth with caries

Root canal therapy removes the diseased or decayed parts of a tooth and restores its health. The ceramic crown fused to metal, in this case, protects the tooth from further damage and restores its shape and appearance.

Other types of dental crown material options to consider

Your dentist may recommend cast-to-metal porcelain or another type of dental crown. Other options include:

  • Ceramic
  • Metal alloy
  • Gold alloy

Each material option has its own advantages and disadvantages. The best way for a patient to decide whether a metal-fused porcelain dental crown or another type of dental crown is right for them is to visit a dentist for a consultation.
