Glass Ceramic Crowns




What is a Glass Ceramic Crown? 

This type of crowns is based on lithium disilicate which is a glass ceramic. Glass ceramic crowns are rapidly gaining widespread popularity in cosmetic dentistry due to their excellent aesthetics, durability, and strength. They are most suitable for your front teeth. 


Benefits of Glass Ceramic Crowns

  • They possess an ideal blend of translucency and lifelike appearance, that makes them suitable for restoration of front teeth. They are more translucent than zirconium crowns. 
  • They don’t contain any metal alloy. This means that a grey line of the underlying metal will not be visible at the gumlines.
  • They have excellent durability and they are resistant to crack, fracture or chip.
  • Since they possess excellent strength and fracture resistance, these crowns can be prepared in very thin sections. This not only ensures optimal aesthetics, but also requires minimal removal of natural tooth structure during preparation allowing your tooth to stand stronger.



1 st Appointment

  • Clinical examination including matching the shade of the crown with your natural teeth, evaluation of the X-Ray and consultation.
  • Administration of local anaesthetic
  • Preparation of the tooth by removing a small amount of tooth structure.
  • Taking an impression of your tooth by means of an intra-oral camera or conventional mould filled with dental paste which you will be asked to bite into. The impression will be then sent to our on-site dental laboratory where your crown will be fabricated.  
  • Placement of a temporary crown until your permanent crown is ready. Avoid sticky or hard food and avoid chewing from that side until your final fitting appointment. 

2 nd Appointment

  • Checking the fitting in terms of bite, size, shape and colour. When the results are satisfactory, the crown can be polished and cemented at the second appointment in some cases. 

3 rd Appointment

  • Final adjustments, polishing and permanent fixing of the crown. One or two extra appointments might be arranged for perfect fitting where needed.



Celtra Duo

 A zirconia-reinforced lithium silicate microstructure high-strength glass ceramic material manufactured by Dentsply Sirona (USA). The near-atomic dissolution of the zirconia does not cloud the looks while reinforcing the glass matrix. The extraordinary qualities of Celtra Duo will make the difference for your prosthesis providing a unique combination of aesthetics and high strength. 

The high glass content of Celtra Duo (ZLS) not only gives the material its excellent light-optical and mechanical properties, it also provides the added benefit of self-healing when fired.


  • High strength and longevity in long-term chewing simulations 
  • Excellent light-optical properties with fluorescence and chameleon effect in which some part of the colour is picked up from adjacent teeth making it virtually undetectable where the restoration ends and the natural tooth begins 
  • Excellent edge stability, resulting in restorations with strong and durable margins that resist chipping 


  • Anterior (front side of the jaw) crowns  
  • Inlays 
  • Onlays 
  • Veneers



IPS e.max

A lithium disilicate based glass-ceramic material manufactured by Ivoclar Vivadent (multinational, originated in Germany). Strong, highly translucent and highly aesthetic, offering accuracy of fit, shape and function. Due to its natural-looking tooth colouring and excellent light-optical properties, this material produces impressive results. The outstanding performance of the material is based on a combination of excellent flexural strength and high fracture toughness adjusted to the given dental requirements. The clinical success of the material attests to its quality. Furthermore, these properties allow you to work according to the requirements of conservative dentistry. Depending on the patient situation, the restorations may be veneered in a highly esthetic manner or, if fabricated as monolithic restorations, they will be stained.


  • Excellent flexural strength and fracture resistance 
  • Allowing the creation of veneers in very thin dimensions for a translucent effect similar to natural enamel, making it easier to achieve excellent colour-matching results  
  • Ability to block out dark underlying colours or be purposely designed to allow favourable underlying colours to show through 


  • Crowns 
  • Inlays/onlays 
  • Veneers 
  • Thin veneers 
  • Anterior (front) bridges 


 Choosing the Right Glass Ceramic Brand for Your Restoration 

Aesthetics is not the only reason to choose the right brand for your restoration. We recommend to discussing both options with your Cosmetic Dentist before making any decision as many other factors such as structure and form of the teeth, location and purpose of the restoration are involved. 



Treatment Specific


What Are Some Common Uses of Glass Ceramic Crowns?
  • Stained teeth: Glass Ceramic crowns and veneers are excellent for stained teeth and they have resistance against facture and chipping.
  • Crooked or fractured teeth: Teeth can be restored and reshaped using Glass Ceramic crowns especially in the anterior region.
  • After root canal treatments: Teeth can become brittle after root canal treatments. Glass Ceramic crowns are a great choice to restore those teeth as they offer excellent strength and durability.
What Are The Benefits?
  • Durability and Strength: Glass Ceramic are made of lithium disilicate; a glass ceramic that possesses excellent strength. These crowns are less likely to crack or fracture.
  • Appearance: Due its translucency, it’s the best match for your natural teeth.
  • All-ceramic: Glass Ceramic crowns do not have a metal alloy base so they won’t be visible under gumlines.
  • Conservative: Due to their resistance to fracture and chipping, Glass Ceramic crowns can be prepared in thin sections so only a minimal amount of natural tooth structure is removed during the preparation.
What to Expect After You Have Your Glass Ceramic Crown?

Right after your new crown is cemented, you may experience some sensitivity to cold. This is normal because the tooth and the surrounding area might be slightly irritated during the procedure. You might also feel that your bite is off in the first couple of days. If the “off” feeling still persists after that, it might require a slight adjustment.

It is very important that you maintain excellent oral hygiene with your new crown or bridge. A crowned tooth might give the wrong impressions that it won’t decay like your natural teeth but it is still susceptible to decay near the gumline. You should continue to brush and floss as normal.

E-max crowns are very strong but they still have potential to fracture the same as a natural tooth. Avoid doing anything with a crown or bridge that could damage a natural tooth. Do not chew ice as extreme temperature change increases the fracture of crowns and natural teeth.
