Advantages and qualities of pressed ceramic porcelain, zirconia, and gold-ceramic crowns, bridges

I.Material:

Pressed ceramic porcelain:

100% metal-free, the material of the crown is pressed at high-pressure, so the crown becomes mechanically resistent

Zirconia:

100% metal-free, consists of natural minerals, it is a strong material so it is suitable for making bridges
Made by CAD/CAM procedure: it is a process that is designed and manufactured by computer. The crown is 3-dimensionally trimmed from a block of zirconia. Hereby, the opportunity of human fault can be excluded.

Gold-ceramic crown with porcelain masking:

This kind of crown has a gold base which provides stability and made by galvanization.
The plaster cast of the teeth is dipped into a solution containing gold. On the surface of the cast, a thin layer of gold secedes, which fits to the teeth precisely.

II. Crowns for different types of teeth loss:

Pressed ceramic porcelain:

Suggested for the lack of frontal teeth. It is a little bit harder than tooth enamel. Solo crowns can be made of this material.

Zirconia:

Suggested for the lack of frontal and molar teeth, it is also suitable for making bridges.

Gold-ceramic crown with porcelain masking:

Suggested for the lack of frontal and molar teeth, mostly this material is used for making solo crowns. The prosthesis is as hard as the traditional metal-ceramic crown.

III. Aesthetics:

Pressed ceramic porcelain:

The whole crown is ceramic, so it has a high level of aesthetics. Using this material, we can reproduce the natural colours of teeth. The translucency of the material is similar to natural teeth’s.

Zirconia:

Due to the high level of translucency, it is much more aesthetic than the traditional metal-ceramic crown, its color is similar to natural teeth.

Gold-ceramic crown with porcelain masking:

The ceramic layer on the gold base is thicker, so we can provide a high level of aesthetics. The gold-colored „cap” acts like the prisms of enamel, so it can provide a realistic and natural effect.

IV. In case of the tooth is root-canal filled:

Pressed ceramic porcelain:

If the tooth is just a little bit discolored, the pressed ceramic porcelain crown can cover it. Deeply and highly discolored teeth needs whitening before attaching the crown.

Zirconia:

If the tooth is just a little bit discolored, the pressed ceramic porcelain crown can cover it. Deeply and highly discolored teeth needs whitening before attaching the crown.

Gold-ceramic with porcelain masking:

This kind of crown can be applied in case of root-canal filled, deeply and highly discolored teeth without the need of whitening.

V. Further advantages:

Pressed ceramic porcelain:

The preparation of teeth needs much less removal of tooth-material (0,7-1 mm), so the chance of damaging the pulp is minimal. The material is 100% metal-free, it does not have any harmful effect on your body, so it is called biocompatible.

It is antiallergic.

The crown perfectly fits to the prepared surface.

Before attaching, we at NaturaDENT apply a special laser to disinfect the surfaces. With this method, we destroy all the bacteria on the surface of the tooth, to minimize the possibility of secondary caries.

Zirconia:

This kind of material is metal-free, and does not cause allergy.

The material does not conduct heat, so you will not feel sensitivity to hot or cold things.

Before attaching, we at NaturaDENT apply a special laser to disinfect the surfaces. With this method, we destroy all the bacteria on the surface of the tooth, to minimize the possibility of secondary caries.

Gold-ceramic crown with porcelain masking:

This kind of material is tooth-sparing, so teeth are less likely to become damaged.

The crown made of gold and ceramic is precise, perfectly fits to the prepared surface, so there is a less chance of secondary caries.

It is durable, and breakage resisting.

Gold has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial a bacteriostatic feature, so it prevents the colonization of bacteria near the edge of the crown. So there is a less chance of evolving secondary caries, gingiva recession and periodontal pockets.

The material does not contain inert materials, so the number of allergic reactions are minimal.

Before attaching, we at NaturaDENT apply a special laser to disinfect the surfaces. With this method, we destroy all the bacteria on the surface of the tooth, to minimize the possibility of secondary caries.

Lézerek alkalmazása az implantátumok körüli gyulladás kezelésében

Ha fogpótláson gondolkodik, és már elkezdett információt gyűjteni az eljárásról, biztosan találkozott már a peri implantitis kifejezéssel.

Különbség az egyes lézerek között

A lézerfogászat egyre divatosabb fogalom, egy teljesen új világ, mely olyan lehetőségeket kínál a fogászati kezelések elvégzésére, melybe sokáig belegondolni sem mertünk.
