These crowns were at the forefront of application throughout the modern history of dentistry. These crowns include metal, mostly surgical steel and stainless metals, and layers of ceramics that go over them. Ceramics are durable, so they are a suitable material for reshaping, but also for bringing color to perfection and harmony.
Most crowns of this type serve as a functional tooth, but they also fit aesthetically among existing teeth.
Metal-free crowns are an alternative for those who do not react well to metals but are also more common among those who decide to "fix" their front teeth.
