A highly popular type of crown at Glen Dental is the ceramic (metal free) crowns which are expertly colour matched to your existing teeth and are usually made from Emax or Zirconia, which are two top grade materials that are tough, durable and opaque, making them highly preferable to a traditional porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. This is because they provide an exceptionally life-like aesthetic solution.
Glen Dental in Leicester are pleased to offer patients metal free crowns – a highly successful cosmetic crown option for repairing cracked, broken, decayed or heavily filled teeth.
Our Leicester dentists use these exceptionally stunning cosmetic crowns and bridges in situations where aesthetics are of the utmost importance, such as your front teeth. This allows us to provide an exceptionally life-like aesthetic solution.
These aesthetic crowns work by allowing light to pass through as a normal tooth would and that gives a natural look, unlike other metal cores that block the light. Also, they do not leave a black line on the edge of the crown by your gum line. They also have strength, allowing you to chew comfortably and with confidence.
The new all-ceramic crowns at Glen Dental in Leicester are aesthetically superior to any other type of crown. You just cannot get the same finish and natural, living look with a traditional metal core (porcelain fused to metal) crown.
An aesthetic crown could be a good solution for you if you have discoloured fillings or crowns at the front and would like to improve their appearance. We will discuss the material, shape, size, position and colour of the crown or bridge at your free consultation.
Our patients from across Leicestershire are also delighted with the reduction in sensitivity they experience with our all-ceramic crowns and bridges. The typical sharp reaction to hot and cold often felt with traditional crowns doesn’t usually occur because of the lack of electrical conductivity.
We offer a free consultation for metal free crowns so, if you are considering this treatment and would like to find out more, please contact us today to book.

While crowns can last a lifetime, they do sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your crown is to practice good oral hygiene.
Keep your gums and teeth healthy by brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily. We advice to spit out the excess toothpaste after toothbrushing but not to rinse out with water.
See your Leicester dentist or hygienist regularly for checkups and professional cleaning.
To prevent damage to your new crown or bridge, avoid chewing hard foods, ice or other hard objects. Avoid using your crown or bridge (and natural teeth!) for things such as opening bottle lids, tearing sellotape or cutting cotton thread.
