Artificial crowns replace extremely damaged and esthetically unacceptable teeth which cannot be upgraded with any of the dental fillings.
The tooth which is being treated needs to be previously prepared. After preparation, the print of the remaining tooth is taken according to which later on a crown is made in our dental laboratory. After connecting the crown and the tooth, it takes a completely normal appearance.
The basic structure of the crown or bridge is built from the high quality and firm metal material.
A certain number of layers is applied on the basic structure. The visible part of the made crown or bridge is covered with ceramic for esthetic reasons or durability.
The traditional ceramic crown with a metal base looks like a natural tooth, with large firmness and durability, which is why metal ceramic crowns have been representing the golden standard for many years now. It is a fact that non-metal ceramic crowns are recently becoming more and more popular, but metal ceramic crowns are still the crowns of choice, as out of economical reasons, likewise for excellent aesthetical results. It is esthetically acceptable because the metal doesn’t shine through and cannot be seen anywhere.
An adequately made dental crown will in most cases extend the life of your tooth when, for instance, the possibilities for sanitation with fillings are exhausted. In our dental laboratory, the metal ceramic crown is made by the most high quality world-renowned and leading manufacturers.
The base of the metal-ceramic crown is a metal cap, which covers the prepared tooth, and on it, the ceramic is applied. The advantage of metal-ceramic crowns is that metal in the base gives explicit firmness.
Zirconia ceramic crowns (Nonmetal ceramic)
Zirconium dioxide and Lithium-disilicate are materials which, in the last few years, made a true revolution in dental medicine and ensured highly esthetical results.
The basic characteristics of these materials are the refraction of the light and transparency which is very similar to the natural tooth. Next, to this, these materials are characterized by an explicit mechanical resistance which is on the same level as the formerly used metal. In fact, it is the most current system of compensating the tooth which is being used in esthetical dentistry.
The skeleton of the crown or bridge is made of zircon, an excellent contemporary material which helps in the achievement of a natural look of the prosthetic material.
Completely ceramic or porcelain crowns satisfy the highly esthetical requests. Porcelain crowns mimic the features of natural teeth entirely which results in a crown that is not possible to differentiate from the natural tooth. Completely porcelain crowns are being recommended for front teeth so to keep the high esthetics of these teeth.
The sole surgical procedure lasts short, and most importantly, is completely painless for the patient since it is done under local anesthetics.
