WHY TO START TREATMENT WITH CERAMIC CROWNS IN BB DENTAL DENTAL OFFICES?
Undoubtedly the most beautiful and natural looking crown that can be fitted is the ceramic one. Ceramic crowns have a translucency that allows them to transmit light like a natural tooth. Globally, they are displacing metal-ceramics as a preferred material, especially in the visible tooth region. A major advantage of ceramic over metal-ceramic crowns is the lack of a metal base, which in some cases is the cause of teeth and gums shading.
Ceramic crowns are usually used when the teeth are killed and have major damage, irregular shape, discoloration and more. Ceramic veneers are preferred when the teeth are alive.
TYPES OF CERAMIC CROWNS
Dental implants, like natural teeth, stimulate the jaw and prevent bone loss. In addition, no healthy teeth are cut.
- classic feldspar porcelain
Glass-ceramics with fillers
- reinforced leucite ceramics: Empress;
- lithium disilicate ceramics: IPS e.max Press, IPS e.max CAD;
- infiltrated glass ceramics: In-Ceram Spinell, In-Ceram Alumina
Ceramics without glass, polycrystalline
- with aluminum base: NobelProcera Alumina
- with zirconium base: NobelProcera Zirconia, IPS e.max ZirCAD, Lava Zirconia
IN THE DENTAL CABINETS BB DENTAL WE USE IPS E.MAX CERAMICS
IPS e.max is made of monolithic lithium-disilicate ceramics - it is the highest grade material that has been developed for its strength, durability and durability, which makes it indispensable. Provides superior aesthetics and precision. Its structure provides a bending force between 360-400 MPa (360 MPa at e.max CAD, 400 MPa at e.max Press), making it ideal for single crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, superimplant restorations, anterior tooth bridges. up to 3 bridge units. Tooth cutting is significantly more sparing than metal-ceramic crowns. The only downside to E-max crowns is the high cost.
