Crowns, zirconium, all-ceramicZirconium crowns
are prosthetic restorations that allow you to rebuild the shape and function of a damaged tooth even when it is no longer possible to rebuild a standard tooth with a filling. All-ceramic crowns are an ideal alternative to standard porcelain crowns faced with porcelain
. They do not contain metal substructures, so it is possible to obtain optimal depth and translucent perfectly imitating a natural, healthy tooth. At the same time, they do not cause the risk of discoloration of the gum around the crown. Full-ceramic crowns are the highest achievement of dentistry when it comes to the possibility of perfect aesthetics for single tooth reconstruction. What is the course of treatment? Here is a simplified scheme of the procedure:
- First visit: after qualifying the tooth for a prosthetic crown, the doctor proceeds to grind the selected tooth. The grinding procedure is carried out in anesthesia and is completely painless. Then the dentist takes an impression and sends it back to the prosthetic laboratory. The visit ends with the execution of the interim crown, which provides aesthetic appearance and functionality until the finished prosthetic crown is cemented and protects the tooth and surrounding tissuefrom injuries.
- Second visit: the dentist removes the temporary crown and tries on the finished all-ceramic crown. After checking the accuracy of the fit and full aesthetics in relation to the other teeth, the doctor cements the crown permanently in the patient's mouth
- What are the indications for the execution of crowns? – the indication for crowns is a large destruction of tooth tissues, teeth after root canal treatment and unsatisfactory aesthetic appearance of the tooth.
- What is the durability of all-ceramic crowns? – the durability of all-ceramic crowns on zirconium oxide is the same as the durability of traditional crowns faced on metal. However, they allow to achieve an even better aesthetic so important especially in the patient's smile zone.
- What is the difference between a veneered crown and a crown on a zirconium? – the difference lies in the material used to make them. Porcelain-lic crowns consist of a metal skeleton on which porcelain is burned, while full-ceramic crowns are made entirely of porcelain or are for a rhinebone oxide substructure, thus being characterized by the best possible Aesthetics.
