Jacket Crowns - Solutions True to Life

A jacket crown is a full porcelain ceramic covered crown that protects the entire surface of a tooth to maintain functional and structural integrity of the tooth.

A jacket crown is a pure ceramic crown with no internal structure. The crown is somewhat weaker than ceramic crowns that contain a coping to support the porcelain firings. It is usually built up onto refractory die material with feldspatic ceramic much like a feldspatic veneer.

A jacket crown is the most aesthetic possible crown as it is built up from the internal core to the external enamel by a highly skilled master ceramist who understands all the complexities of layering ceramic to achieve a natural looking restoration.
