Ceramic crowns and bridges

Prosthetics include procedures that lead to perfecting your smile. If you have a tooth with a large filling or a tooth damaged by a caries; if a situation can not be solved by putting a filling then you should consider dental crowns. The crowns can be metal-alloy ceramic crowns or all-ceramic crowns depending on your situation and your requirements and possibilities. Dental crowns are advised after a root canal treatment in order to strengthen and to restore an already broken tooth, worn down tooth or a cracked tooth. Ceramic crowns cover the entire tooth to protect it or they can be placed on the implants. Other than cosmetic modifications, ceramic crowns are placed on severely damaged teeth that can break due to masticatory forces.

What should we expect from a perfect prosthetic solution? It should adhere perfectly to a well prepared tooth, it shouldn’t compromise the adherent tissue, it should have good and well adjusted contacts with the adjacent teeth and the antagonist teeth; and in the end the form and the color should match with the other teeth.  Meeting these conditions requires a lot of knowledge, skill and time of your prosthetics specialist as well as of the rest of the team (periodontist, implantologist) and the dental technician.

Poorly fitting crown may result in secondary caries, tooth sensibility or even loosing the crown. The crown that makes too much pressure on the gum line may lead to gum inflammation that can affect even the deeper structures of periodontal tissue. Poorly adjusted contacts with the adjacent teeth contribute to food infiltration which can also lead to caries, inflammation and other problems.

In cases where only one tooth has to be crowned it is extremely difficult to obtain the aspect of the real tooth. The biggest challenge is to make the crown seem completely natural in its relation to the gum tissue.

Dental bridges and crowns are made out of ceramic added on the metal alloy structure or they can be made by using CAD/CAM technology. The aim of the dental prosthetics is to replace the missing teeth, cosmetically improve your teeth, i.e. improve the functional and esthetic aspect of your mouth. By doing so, the quality of your life is improved.

The self-esteem and the quality of your life that are the direct result of your new smile have no price.
