The biggest complaint I hear from patients regarding crowns or caps is the dreaded black line that shows up next to their gum line. This unattractive black line that we have all seen, is the result of the metal substructure the crown is built on. The gum tissue develops an allergic-type reaction to this metal sub-structure, specifically the nickel element, resulting in an inflammatory response causing the gum tissue to recede or pull away from the crown, exposing this unsightly “Black Metal Line!”
With the advancement of ALL Porcelain Crowns, they are not only a better-looking crown option, but they actually fit the tooth more accurately because they are made from CAD/CAM technology. These crowns are fabricated out of durable porcelain material and then secured to your tooth with strong oral cement. Through proper care and maintenance, all-porcelain crowns can last for decades.
So say goodbye to Black Lines around crowns forever!
At Cottonwood Creek Dental we only use All Porcelain Crowns, which will NEVER show a black line, along with creating a healthier environment for your gum tissue!
