A Dental Crown is a prosthetic cover placed on top of the tooth to cover it. Our crowns are metal free made out of Emax or Zirconium depending on the doctor's recommendation.
All of our crowns are made with the CAD/CAM technology. This means the crowns are designed with a special 3D software and then milled with a precision dental milling machine to guarantee they a perfect fit in your mouth.
The crowns can match any tooth color for a more natural look in your mouth. The dental code for a metal free crown is D2740 and the description reads: Crown - porcelain/ceramic substrate.

FAQ About Crowns
The crown over implant is the tooth placed on top of the implant. It is very similar to a regular crown but the difference is that it sits over the abutment and not your tooth. Restoring an implant needs two different parts: the abutment and the crown.
The abutment is a connection part that is attached to the implant. It can also be described as an implant extension that provides the base where the crown is cemented on. It is custom made to fit your mouth's anatomy for a better esthetic look. The metal free crown over an implant has the dental code D6058 and it is described: Abutment supported porcelain/ceramic crown.
This crown can also have the code D6065 with the description: Implant supported porcelain/ceramic crown
