This is a type of restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of tooth. Typically bonded to tooth using dental cement.
This is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or protect a damaged tooth surface
These are false teeth, known as pontics, which are fused between two porcelain crowns to fill areas left by missing teeth. Two crowns hold it in place, these are attached to adjacent sides of the false tooth known as fixed bridge.
Root device usually made of titanium, used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth to replace missing teeth.
Is a process in which an enamel like dental composite material is applied to a tooth’s surface, sculped into shape, hardened and polished.
Root Canal Treatment
Sequence of treatment for the pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth for future microbial invasion.
Also known as teeth bleaching which restores natural tooth color and bleaching whitens beyond the natural color.
Surgical procedure by which new bone or a replacement material is placed into spaces between or around broken bone or holes in bone to aid in healing.
What is a IPS e.max®?
IPS e.max® is made of monolithic lithium disilicate ceramic and delivers outstanding esthetics and precision fit. An affordable alternative to PFMs and zirconia-based restorations, IPS e.max can be pressed or milled using Enhanced CEREC® software and the Sirona inLab® MC XL milling machine.
Prescribe IPS e.max to achieve optimal esthetics, virtually perfect contacts and occlusion, and impressive strength. Its unique lithium disilicate ceramic provides flexural strength of 360-400 MPa, making it the ideal high-strength solution for single-unit anterior or posterior crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, screw-retained implant crowns, 3-unit anterior bridges or restorations with minimum preparation dimensions.
Conventionally cement using resin ionomer cements or bond for maximum retention on non-retentive preparations. Lithium disilicate ceramic is biocompatible and provides more than double the flexural strength of IPS Empress® Esthetic.
What is a Zirconia Crown?
Advantages of Having Zirconium Crown
Zirconium is becoming one of the most chosen materials for dental crowns. Its many advantages include:
• Extraordinarily tough
• Can withstand wear and tear
• Translucent enough to be similar to natural teeth
• Less tooth removal
• No Metal fuse
• Modifiable size, shape and color
It is a fact that gold crowns have been used by many people for so many years and it is well tolerated by the body. But it is still better to be able to show that natural effect when you smile. Add the fact that gold is metal and some people just do not like having metals in their internal parts.
Zirconium crowns are definitely more robust than porcelain crowns. They last longer too, compared to porcelain that chip and break. Porcelain crowns also need to be fused to a metal base and the metal is that black unsightly line above the gums of people with porcelain crowns.
Since Zirconium crowns are milled from a chunk of crystal, they are guaranteed to be at least 5 times stronger than porcelain and it metal fuse. Zirconium crowns also provide strength without that bulky appearance that porcelain is so known for.
