Zirconium and IPS e.max crowns

Zirconium crowns offer the patient a very durable restoration for back molars.  These crowns have no metal in their construction and can be harder and more resistant to fracture than porcelain bonded to metal crowns.  They aren't usually used on front teeth or premolars as they lack translucency.  But they are great restorations for back teeth.

IPS e.max crowns are a non-metallic material that is very durable, but not as hard as zirconium crowns but they have beautiful transluscency and therefore are more appropriate for premolars and front teeth.
