Ivoclar Vivadent's patented lithium disilicate material is truly a revolution for the dental industry. This option for crown is full porcelain with NO metal. These crowns are ideal for not just the front teeth, but for all teeth. The IPS e.max crowns look just like natural teeth and is a long term investment. If you plan on only have one crown placed for the tooth, then this is the one you want to get. It is a one appointment process and you do not need to wait for 2 weeks for the lab to make your crown. Also, no wait time means no need to wear the temporary crowns hoping it won't fall off. Never before has a material been able to combine high strength, high esthetics and ease of use into one product, until now. This crown is worth paying extra for.
IPS e.max lithium disilicate restorations exhibit superior durability featuring 360-400 MPa of flexural strength. When fabricated to full-contour, the monolithic structure is the most robust ceramic system tested to date. The opalescence, translucency and light diffusion properties of IPS e.max lithium disilicate were all designed to replicate natural tooth structure for beauty and undetectable restorations.
PFM stands for porcelain fused to metal. The base of the crown is made from a metal alloy and covered with a porcelain. These crowns are great for functionality and have been in the dental field for decades. PFM are great for back teeth where metal at the bottom margin will not be able to be seen. These crowns will fit and function like your natural teeth and can be matched with the rest of your existing teeth. There will be a 2 week wait for the lab to fabricate and design the crown. The PFM are affordable and perfect for patients on a budget.
