We can lose teeth due to an accident, fracture, tooth decay or gum disease. Losing only one tooth can be extremely detrimental, not only aesthetically, but also health wise. Our body’s homeostasis and the unity of chewing can be faltered. To restore it, dentures or implantations can be used.NEW CROWN WITH 5 YEARS WARRANTY!ASK FOR A CALL BACK!
Choosing a New Crown
If the tooth crown is damaged to such an extent that it can no longer be restored by tooth filling or inlay, then a dental crown is necessary. There are several options available.
Crowns are usually made of porcelain, and among them the most popular ones are the metal free crowns, which can be zirconium or all-ceramic-crowns.
Zirconia Framed Crowns
Zirconium-framed crowns are aesthetically ideal. The look of zirconium is close to natural teeth and due to its strong frame even bridges can be made from it. It’s an absolutely metal-free, hard material that protects against hot and cold sensitivity. Using zirconium crowns guarantees that no gum disease or gingival retraction can be developed. In many ways this is the best crown available.
They are made of gold or metal alloys. Their advantage is that there’s no need to remove the entire original tooth, and the resistance of the crown against the force exerted during chewing is also ideal. Because of their durability they almost never break. However, their downside is their metallic colouring, which can be aesthetically problematic. This is why these crowns are usually placed in parts of the mouth that cannot be seen directly.
The most frequently chosen crown is the porcelain- fused- to metal crown. Generally it is placed in the chewing area. Its advantages compared to all-metal crown is that it does not deviate from the natural color of the tooth, therefore it doesn’t provide unnatural effect in the mouth.
All Ceramic Crowns
Aesthetically satisfying, exactly like the original tooth color and form. Gingivitis is not possible, since plaque cannot be stuck on its flat surface. It does not contain metal frame at all so no metal allergy will occur.
Plastic Dental Crowns
In most cases, temporary plastic crowns are used for tooth replacement for only a few days, possibly weeks, until the final cementation. Their purpose is to provide comfort to the patient and to protect the buffed stubs against different external mechanical impacts.WHAT CROWN WOULD BE IDEAL FOR YOU?WE HELP WITH THE DECISION!
