Fully ceramic crowns
Crowns made entirely of ceramics are a nicer and better alternative to classic metal - ceramic crowns. Unlike metal - ceramics, complete ceramics enable natural translucency and penetration of light through the tooth and the crown, which results in the natural appearance of the crown.
Crowns with a metal core can never achieve a completely natural look, and often lead to additional bad effects on aesthetics such as sifting metal on the edge next to the gums and do not allow light to penetrate through the tooth resulting in unnatural color. The reason why most dentists do not use full ceramic crowns is that the technique of their placement and fabrication is very demanding.
Due to its transparency, the color of the ceramic is greatly influenced by the color of the ground tooth itself. The dentist and dental technician must be very skilled in color manipulation and have excellent knowledge of the optical properties of the tooth and the material itself. There are various types of ceramics for making all-ceramic crowns.
When is it necessary to make a rosary?
The crown is made in cases when the tooth is so damaged that no filling can be made on it. The most common are fractures of the front teeth due to a blow or some other trauma. Teeth that have had large caries and endodontically treated teeth after therapy usually have great damage, so it would be best to protect them with a crown. With endodontically treated teeth, it is usually necessary to further strengthen the tooth with a composite augmentation.
For aesthetic reasons, crowns can be used to reshape teeth that are rotated or bent, and at the same time already contain fillings. In this case, it is better to correct healthy teeth with ceramic veneers in order to preserve tooth tissue. Crowns can also get rid of tooth discoloration, especially endodontically treated teeth that darken over time, and a skilled technician can achieve the desired effect by choosing the right material and color.
Advantages of all-ceramic crowns
Strength - complete ceramic has a strength 3 times greater than tooth enamel, so the fear of cracking such crowns is unfounded. Once attached to the tooth, such a crown and the tooth form one whole and cannot be separated in any way except by cutting the crown.
Aesthetics - complete ceramic completely mimics the optical properties of a natural tooth. Properties such as translucency, opalescence, transparency and fluorescence are completely transferred to the ceramic resulting in a crown that is indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Since it does not contain metal, there is no discoloration of the edge of the gums and ugly sifting of metal through the meat.
Biocompatibility - ceramics, unlike metals, do not cause allergies and the tissue tolerates it perfectly. Therefore, crowns can be made that look like they grow out of the gums and completely mimic the look of a natural tooth.
Persistence - the metal under the influence of moisture from the oral cavity, corrodes and releases metal particles that remain in the gums and cause dark discoloration. The ceramic is durable in the mouth and does not change color.
