Birmingham Alabama (Vestavia hills)Stuart Curry Dentistry, a locally owned and operated dental practice based in Birmingham, Alabama, is proud to announce that they have not fitted a traditional crown since 2010. Traditional crowns while very effective at solving a problem were not made with cosmetic benefits in mind. Purely functional the manufacturing process involved fusing porcelain to a metal base. Invariably this meant that there was a clear and visible black line where the porcelain molded with the metal.

This was one of the driving factors behind Stuart Curry Dentistry deciding to switch to only fitting the latest all-ceramic crowns. There have been significant developments in recent years when it comes to ceramic manufacturing with providers now being able to make the entire crown from ceramic. This delivers a number of significant advantages to the patient. The new crowns fit better, they look much better, and the types of cement used today are much stronger, which ensures a much better bond. Another benefit is that because the new crowns are made from ceramic material there is less structure needed to be removed in order to make a crown, so it is a much more conservative preparation of the tooth. This leads to less sensitivity than the old way of making crowns.

“Here at Stuart Curry dentistry, we can make crowns that look so close to real teeth you literally cannot tell the difference,” said Dr. Stuart Curry of Stuart Curry Dentistry. “The developments and improvements in dental technology have been extensive in recent years. The last traditional crown I personally fitted was back in 2010, and I think it is highly unlikely that I will ever fit another one again.”
