For various reasons, teeth may need additional protection in the form of ceramic or partial crowns. The crown completely embraces and replaces the tooth crown, while a partial crown replaces only a part of the tooth crown.
Minimally Invasive Preparations
The main guideline in prosthetic care is always minimal invasiveness in the tooth substance, as this leads to fewer complications and longer lasting treatment. Depending on the amount of residual dental substance, the anatomy and the function of the individual tooth, we decide whether to make a full or partial crown.
Designing and Making the Crowns
In the case of more extensive treatment, we formulate computerized simulations of the final restorations before starting the process. The planned state is transferred to the patient's mouth using temporary materials.
We analyse the look and function and make appropriate corrections. By doing so, we have all the necessary data before starting the procedure. We know precisely where and how much tooth preparation needs to be done, which is reflected in the minimal invasiveness of the procedure. This way, the care is more aesthetic, functional and longer lasting.
Non-Metallic High Aesthetic Structures
Computer design and production, the use of state-of-the-art materials and collaboration with state-of-the-art laboratories enables us to produce high-aesthetic non-metallic prosthetic restorations. Compared to conventional metal or metallo-ceramic crowns, these polycarbonate crowns are firmer, more accurate and more aesthetically pleasing with the correct production, since there is no metal on the tooth and no possibility of metal colouration.
Inflammation of the gums and caries is a common occurrence in crowns that are not precisely made and the edges of which are pushed below the gum boundary. Precise tooth preparation, 3D intraoral scanning and computer-aided production make them extremely accurate to fit and the use of non-metallic materials allows us to place the edges of the restorations above the gum. All this is biologically more acceptable compared to conventional processes of making the crowns. The maintenance of hygiene with such crowns is easier and, therefore, with appropriate hygiene, the disease processes of the teeth and periodontal tissues will not develop.
