The Problems With Metal Crowns

Dark Lines Around a Crown

Are you embarrassed by the unattractive dark lines you have near the edges of your dental crown? Do you wish there was something your dentist can do to remove them?

At McKinney Dentist, removing dark lines caused by crowns is one way we perfect smiles on a daily basis with cosmetic dentistry in McKinney, TX! These unsightly dark lines naturally appear on your crowned tooth because of the metal underneath. Using metal allows the dentist to provide extra strength to your crown or bridge. However, when this metal coping becomes exposed, the dark lines emerge. This is especially evident in porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.

A Natural Looking Solution

Your crowns at McKinney Dentist will never have this unattractive dark rim around the gum tissue. When seeing someone smile who has crowns with dark lines, we know that they have had previous dental work that had some kind of metal core and then masked with porcelain. If this applies to you, McKinney Dentist has the perfect cosmetic dentistry solution for removing dark lines on crowns- we replace the old crowns with an allporcelain crown! If you choose to fix the dark lines through cosmetic dentistry, we will remove your existing crown, and replace it with a crown made of all-porcelain materials.

Perhaps you have multiple teeth with dark lines. McKinney Dentist recommends replacing all of your old crowns at the same time so we can customize and color-match your teeth with consistency and precision. That way, we color-match the porcelain dental crown(s) to create a natural-looking smile.

The Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

  • Strong and aesthetically pleasing
  • Aesthetically cap the front teeth
  • Prevent or remove dark lines
  • A great option for those allergic to metals

We believe that every patient has a right to our very best.

We are dedicated to offering the best dental care to our neighbors in McKinney, TX and surrounding areas such as Plano, Allen, Frisco, Prosper, and the greater Dallas/Fort Worth region.
