Dental bridges are constructions made of dental caps and intermediate parts that are attached to the teeth on both sides.
Dental veneers and intermediate parts are interconnected and form one whole that definitely binds to natural teeth and does not come off.
Metal-ceramic crowns are fixed prosthetic restorations in which the ceramic is attached to a metal base. With their shape and color, they imitate the appearance of a natural tooth. They can be made by grinding a natural tooth or on implants.
What does the production of metal-ceramic crowns look like?
First visit: teeth are ground to prepare to accept the metal-ceramic crown and an impression is taken.
Second visit: the technician brings a metal construction to try on the teeth
Third: the technician brings the finished work to the trial and if everything is in order, he brings the fee for the final baking and processing.
The fourth visit is also the last in which the work is definitely cemented.
Metal-free ceramic crowns
Zirconium crowns are fixed prosthetic restorations that are made entirely of ceramic. With their shape and color, they imitate the appearance of a natural tooth even better than metal-ceramic crowns. They can be made by grinding a natural tooth or on implants.
What are the advantages of zirconium ceramic crowns?
Biocompatibility with tissues in the mouth due to the fact that zirconium is bioinert and does not cause any allergic reactions.
Reduced risk of dental nerve irritation due to low thermal conductivity of this material and minimal tooth preparation.
The results are long-lasting due to the high mechanical resistance and the complete absence of corrosion in the mouth because saliva can act as an electrolyte if there are more different metals in the mouth.
It does not cause dark discoloration of the gingiva around the neck of the ceramic crown, which can sometimes appear on teeth with a metal base.
Greater transparency compared to metalloceramics.
