Dental Crowns – IPS e.max vs. traditional PFMs (Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal)
There are some great dental innovations with dental crowns. Dental crowns are often the best answer for deep-stained, damaged or deformed teeth. They go over teeth to recreate new and improved smile. It all starts with a precise mold, whether traditional mold or digital one. Often, patients are fitted with a temporary crown while they wait for the permeant one to be designed in the lab by the qualified lab technician.
There are 3 types of crowns:
- gold alloy (mixture of gold and other metals)
- ceramic metal mix (so called PFM crowns)
- all ceramic (IPS e.max and zirconia)
Gold crowns are the most expensive and least esthetic type of a crown. Usually they are only used in the back of the mouth, if at all today.
PFM crowns are considered the traditional crown. They are on the way out since they tend to chip off and porcelain tends to fracture off exposing the metal making them un-esthetic and weak. They are the old technology and due to poor esthetics are now sparingly used.
All-ceramic crowns are highly esthetic, and their strength far exceeds strength of veneered porcelain in the old PFM crowns. IPS e.max is lithium disilicate type of crown and have moderate strength. Zirconia crowns are not as esthetic but are very strong type of a crown, usually used in the back of the mouth due to their strength.
IPS e.max Crowns & Zirconia Crowns
When the right kind of tooth preparation design is done by your dentist (smooth preparation design with no sharp corners or angles), these kinds of crowns can last a very long time. They are also highly esthetic. Zirconia crowns are the strongest crown we have and strides have been made to make them more esthetic. Zirconia is now used not only for crowns on the teeth but also on implants. Zirconia is also being used for hybrid prostheses on implants and has shown superior esthetics.

The fact that aging is a natural and inevitable process for all humans, does not necessarily mean that all the undesirable impacts of aging must simply be accepted as a matter of course. Staying active mentally and physically can significantly delay the effects of aging, so any person who keeps active can look and feel younger than their true age.
Along those same lines, it's also possible to retain a more youthful appearance, and for a much longer time, by addressing some of the most prominent signs of aging, which are the wrinkles, folds, and crow's feet which can appear around the facial area. One of the best ways to effectively combat those signs of aging are with Juvederm, an injectable gel which adds volume to the skin and virtually makes wrinkles fade away.
In a short period of time, Juvederm has become one of the most popular anti-aging, non-surgical treatments in this country, per statistics issued by the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Here are some of the reasons why Juvederm has become the choice of so many people, all of whom are seeking to present a younger-looking appearance to the rest of the world.
Advantages of using Juvederm
First of all, Juvederm treatments are extremely safe and require no surgery at all, so treatments are easy for both doctor and patient. Because the process is simple and relatively free of risk, there is usually no recovery time needed, so it's usually possible to resume normal activities immediately after a treatment. There are several other injectables which can be used to accomplish the reduction or elimination of fine lines and wrinkles, but Juvederm has proven to be one of the most effective, in part because of the smooth consistency of its composition. Some other injectables are more granular in composition, which causes their results to be less smooth and less natural-looking.
One of the most attractive features of Juvederm is that it's mostly composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally and abundantly in the human body. Hyaluronic acid has some beneficial properties of its own, increasing skin hydration while adding volume to both underlying skin tissue and the skin itself. Since Juvederm is not obtained from animal tissue, it does not require any kind of testing before usage in cosmetic enhancement.
Juvederm results also tend to be much more long-lasting than some other injectables, and as a result, it has received FDA approval for its exemplary safety record and its efficiency. It is also an injectable that is suitable for people of all skin colors, which is something that cannot be said for some other treatment gels.
Receiving a Juvederm treatment is a process which takes only around 15 or 20 minutes, and as previously mentioned, it is a non-surgical process in which the gel is injected directly into specific target areas on the skin. Results are often immediately obvious, and the enhancement to the facial area can be literally stunning. There are also several different types of Juvederm which can be used to address the various severity levels of aged-looking skin.
In short, some truly amazing results can be achieved in the facial area by using an injectable filler like Juvederm, but those results are always subject to the artistry of the skilled practitioner doing the work. To achieve the very best results possible for your specific circumstances, you should seek out a qualified cosmetic enhancement specialist who has demonstrated exceptional ability in this field, and who has earned the respect of both peers and industry organizations.
