Teeth are one of the main components of an attractive appearance. With the help of dental prosthetics, people try to correct the shortcomings of their smiles, solving several problems at once. Modern dental technologies have long allowed providing patients with decent quality services, so now dental porcelain is one of the most popular materials for prosthetics. Porcelain crowns are a type of metal-free prosthetic construction. Its main advantage is the similarity of physical and chemical properties with natural tooth tissue. This makes the crown as similar as possible to a natural tooth in a row.
A few years ago, prosthetics with porcelain crowns were performed only on the front teeth (in the area of the smile). However, the latest manufacturing techniques have now been developed to combine a zirconia-based frame with a porcelain coating, which makes the structure very strong, durable, and allows the use of dentures for installation on lateral masticatory teeth.
The main indication for the installation of porcelain crowns is the aesthetic restoration of teeth, namely the removal of:
In addition, such designs are suitable for patients who are allergic to metal.
Contraindications to prosthetics with porcelain crowns are periodontal disease in the acute stage on the abutment tooth or tooth antagonist, deep occlusion, bruxism, mobility of the dentition. Also, prosthetics are not performed on children and adolescents.
The method of extruded casting is used to make porcelain crowns. The process of their creation consists of several stages:
Direct manufacturing of a porcelain tooth can be carried out in two ways. The first involves the layer-by-layer application of porcelain mass, and the second uses the method of injection molding. The second option is more modern, it provides high-strength structures, so it is used in most dental laboratories.
Like other designs, porcelain teeth have their pros and cons. The advantages of prostheses include:
The disadvantages include the relatively high cost of porcelain teeth and the need to take into account the restrictions associated with the use of certain foods.
The first step in installing dentures should be to consult a specialist. The doctor must fully examine the oral cavity, find out what results from the patient's expects and together with him choose the most appropriate treatment tactics, based on individual requests and financial capabilities. After making a plan, the specialist begins to prepare the oral cavity and remove the casts, which are sent to the laboratory for the manufacture of crowns. While they are being created, the patient is fitted with temporary prostheses, usually made of plastic. They are needed to restore the aesthetic appearance and chewing function at the time of creating permanent. When the crowns are ready, the doctor invites the patient for fitting and installation. The finished crown is ground, polished, and fixed on the cement material.
