Crowns are prosthetics which are imitate natural teeth in color, size, and shape and make up the lost tooth structure. They are glued to the tooth and look like caps.

You will need crowns when:

  • there is a danger of breaking the part of the tooth, or there are some bigger fillings
  • due to a high caries lesion or a breakage, a big part of the tooth is lost
  • you are not satisfied with the position and look of your teeth
  • as the result of aging, teeth are broken away naturally
  • the tooth is reinforced with fiberglass pin and extracted from its nerves – devitalized

THE PROCESS

After the specialist examines you, he will explain the treatment, make a plan and determined the teeth where the crowns are placed. He will then put you under local anesthesia and shape the teeth. After he takes an impression from the opposite jaw, he will make the print and send it to the lab.

According to the materials and case from which the crowns are created, the dental technician prepares one rehearsal or more if needed and determines a color of it, consulting first with the doctor and the patient.

Alloy layer is the base of the crown, and that is where the ceramic is placed. But there are a few disadvantages of these crowns.

In order to achieve minimally invasive technique or high tooth aesthetics in its shape, it is used in the frontal region. Because of the strong chewing forces, it is not suitable for lateral areas, since there is no base that gives strength and firmness.

Titanium – Ceramic Crowns

Titanium has been used for many years in both dental implant technology and joint medical replacement.  The specialists can give you the aesthetics of a high-quality material with porcelain fused to titanium bridges and crowns. Without needing to remove the fixed prosthesis, titanium will allow you to see the chamber of a pulp under the restoration that is cemented.

Titanium will prevent irritation to the pulp because of its low thermal conductivity. The rigidity and strength of this material are comparable to other high noble alloys that are used commonly in stomatology.

Zirconium Oxide Crowns

Zirconium is the most significant discovery and relatively new material in dental medicine. It is an unfavorable base for plaque build-up which slows down gingival recession and improves oral hygiene care. Zirconium is a weak electricity and heat conductor that minimizes teeth oversensitivity, doesn’t respond to surrounding tissues, and it’s biocompatible.

It doesn’t have a metal base, and without getting fractured, it can bear lateral region’s chewing forces.
