A prosthetic crown represents an artificial dental unit which replaces the crown of the natural tooth. When your tooth is affected by caries in a large proportion and the doctor can not repair the loss of dental tissue (with the help of a fill), then we ca make a prosthetic crown in order to replace the part of the lost tooth, and so we will obtain a solid consolidation.
Metallic – Ceramic Crowns
When your tooth has been degraded in a large proportion by a cavity and the dentist cannot restore the loss of dental tissue (with a filling), then you can choose to make a prosthetic crown to replace the part of the missing tooth, in this way obtaining a strong consolidation.
You can also opt for dental crowns in other situations such as:
- When a dental fracture occurs;
- When tooth vitality is lost;
- When there are major intrinsic stains (internal) that cannot be removed with dental bleaching;
- When teeth are crowded and the patient refuses orthodontic treatment but wants dental aesthetics;
- When the teeth have different sizes;
- When we have to load a dental implant;
- When the shape and the color of teeth are not favorable and a “Perfect Smile” is desired;
PTo achieve a prosthetic crown you need to sacrifice some of the natural tooth tissue by polishing. This labor helps create the necessary space, where the new crown is going to be placed. Because technology has advanced greatly in recent years, lately prosthetic crowns are made at minimal grinding, because they can be achieved at very small thickness.
This is a very important aspect because it helps us to maintain the vitality of the tooth with absolutely no problem. The crown has two components: Cap + Ceramics. CThe cap is a “skeleton”, which acts as a support for ceramics. This cap can be made of different materials, depending on the desired aesthetics: it can be: metal = minimal aesthetics; zirconium = ehigh aesthetics; Ceramic Pressed = high aesthetics.
All types of crowns have the same ceramics, but their appearance is 100% influenced by the cap you have chosen.
Due to developments in dentistry field, this prosthetic branch has advanced greatly and imposed very demanding standards from an aesthetic and functional point of view. In this way perfectly natural and aesthetic crowns are achieved, but they are adjusted in order to have an ideal functionality.
They are made of latest materials and show superior quality in all respects.
“Quality makes the difference!”
