Metal fused porcelain crown

There are several types of crowns that Dr. Bronecki can design to best suit your personal needs.

Metal Crowns

The metal used in Dr. Bronecki crowns is a gold alloy. Alloy is a mixture of precious metals that increase the strength of the gold. By far hi-noble gold is the best metal alloy available for dental crowns due to its durability and individuals the have metal allergies are less likely to react to gold.

Metal crowns cause less wear on the opposing teeth, and will last the longest compared to other crown material. However, the metal crown will be significantly visible.

Metal fused ceramic and metal fused porcelain crowns

Ceramic and porcelain fused to metal crowns can wear on the opposing teeth more than an all metal gold crown.

The porcelain or ceramic can be designed to match the adjacent teeth and provide the patient with durability of metal and the esthetic of a natural looking tooth.

Product Summary

A crown, also referred to as a “cap” is used to completely cover a damaged tooth to the gingival or gum line. Crowns restore appearance and function of the tooth.


Reasons a crown is required:

  • Placed over a tooth that required an endodontic procedure, also known as “root canal”.
  • Over 70% of the tooth is decayed.
  • Tooth fractured or large amalgam filling weakened and resulting in a fracture of tooth and filling.
  • Used to anchor a bridge
  • Placed over the abutment of an implant
