Dental crowns

Dental crownsIf a tooth is damaged we use dental restorations for replacement of the natural crown. They can be made completely out of ceramics or a combination of metal and ceramics. Dental crowns are used when function or aesthetics of the natural tooth is damaged. Dental crowns are used during reconstruction of the tooth by means of dental implants where they serve as caps of the implants or dental bridge support.

In order to place a dental crown on a natural tooth it is essential to prepare the tooth by grinding it to ensure maximum adhesion of the crown to the tooth as well as it’s stability. The crown is fabricated in dental laboratory using a dental impression of the grinded tooth.


About ceramic crowns

Ceramic crownsDental crowns for replacement of natural teeth can be made from many materials. In the last years dental medicine has significantly improved and dental crowns are mostly all-ceramic. Combinations of metal and ceramics are still widely spread, although more and more patients are deciding for all-ceramic crowns, because of it aesthetic value. Zircon and Empress or E.max ceramic are the best modern technology has to offer.

  • Zircon is an extremely hard and biocompatible material (no allergic reactions). This material will give excellent results and ensure a beaming smile.
  • E.max or Empress ceramic is material of great aesthetic value. It’s transparence in combination with your natural grinded teeth will give excellent results. In this combination it will be almost impossible to distinguish your natural teeth form dental crowns. Dental crowns made from this material will be firm and long-lasting.

Metal-ceramic

Metal-ceramic crownsAlthough all-ceramic dental crowns are becoming the most popular option, metal-ceramic is still frequently asked for solution for dental crowns. Although this combination cannot offer aesthetic values as all-ceramic crowns can, it has it’s advantages considering it’s cost effectiveness. Metal part is used to make a base, and it is then completely covered with ceramics.

  • Ceramics and titanium – crowns with titanium base are extremely firm and very suitable for placement in any region of the oral cavity. Beside their firmness they are very rigid, low-weighted, biocompatible and do not cause allergic reactions
  • Ceramics and white gold – for placement in the rear region because of the influence of strong bite forces, white gold is a very good option. This material is biocompatible and suitable for patients with metal allergies. Golden base is completely covered with ceramics.
  • Ceramics and metal – this the most cost efficient crown. The base is made from cobalt, nickel or chromium alloys and is completely covered with ceramics. Their flaw is their low aesthetic value and possibility of allergic reactions with patients who are allergic to metal.
