Indications for prosthetics
The need to restore anatomical shape
The need to restore tooth function
The need to strengthen the tooth
The need to improve the aesthetic appearance of the tooth
Often, the need to strengthen the tooth is the main reason why the dentist recommends covering a badly damaged tooth with a crown. Unfortunately, simply placing a filling does not solve this problem, but rather, on the contrary, weakens the tooth. Why? Because the filling, occupying only some part of the tooth and not covering it entirely, rests on the remaining thinned walls of the tooth. When chewing, the load is transferred through the large filling to the thin walls of the teeth, which can lead to their chipping. Moreover, the chip can be so deep, much below the gum level, that it will be impossible to restore such a tooth even with a crown. A crown, unlike a filling, covers the entire tooth, covering all its surfaces, and thereby excludes such fractures of the teeth. But, this does not mean at all that any tooth in which there is a defect or a carious cavity needs to be protected by a crown. Filling is a fairly effective method of restoring teeth with small cavities, when a lot of healthy tooth tissue and its strong walls are preserved, which can withstand the chewing load without the risk of fracture. A filling that occupies more than a third of the tooth surface can significantly reduce its strength and cause a number of complications.
The doctor, after assessing the situation, can inform you which tooth in the future has the risk of such complications, and in order to prevent them, he will recommend covering it with a crown. In this case, a crown will more effectively and permanently protect your tooth from trouble than a filling.
Types Of Crowns.
For the restoration of teeth, one-piece, ceramic , metal-ceramic crowns are used . In addition, zirconium dioxide prosthetics , which are confidently gaining more and more popularity in the dental services market , certainly deserves special mention .
Restoration of teeth with metal crowns is one of the old and proven means, but far from aesthetic. Until recently, the most common in our country were crowns made of steel, steel with sputtering (titanium nitride), and gold.
Cast crowns are cast in special ovens according to individual wax models, therefore, they practically do not require adjustment in the oral cavity, they are more accurate. The thickness of the cast crown makes it more durable.
Metal crowns are usually placed on the posterior teeth (molars) so that they cannot be seen when smiling.
On the front teeth and teeth that are visible when talking and smiling, it is better to put ceramic or metal-ceramic crowns, which do not differ in color from the color of natural teeth.
The very name of such crowns suggests that the crowns are completely made of ceramics (or porcelain is the common name for the same ceramics). Their main distinguishing feature is their transparency, which imitates the natural optical properties of the tooth, and therefore high aesthetics. In addition, porcelain does not darken over time, does not absorb various dyes, and does not wear off. The main disadvantage is low strength. Therefore, such crowns are used to restore anterior teeth, where maximum aesthetics is required, with a minimum chewing load.
Metal-ceramic crowns are those that are made of ceramics and metal. PFM crowns have the advantages of these two types of crowns, although PFM crowns also have disadvantages. For the manufacture of metal-ceramic crowns, a dental technician first makes a metal frame, then ceramics is applied to the metal. Therefore, metal-ceramic crowns have a natural appearance.
Anterior and posterior teeth are restored with metal-ceramic crowns. Front teeth can be restored because they have a natural appearance. The back teeth can be restored because they are very strong and can withstand the pressure of chewing. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns fit well to the tooth.
The disadvantage of metal-ceramic crowns is that although they have a good appearance, they are inferior in cosmetic terms to all-ceramic crowns.
Zirconium dioxide prosthetics in Chelyabinsk
For more than 20 years, zirconium oxide has been used in restorative dentistry, and it can be recommended as one of the most modern and reliable means for dental restoration.
Benefits of zirconia prosthetics:
Numerous tests confirm the absence of allergy to zirconium dioxide, even in people with high sensitivity and tendency to allergies. Therefore, zirconium oxide crowns and dentures will mark a new step in keeping you healthy.
This material has excellent insulating properties and you do not have to worry about unpleasant reactions to cold or hot temperatures.
When preparing teeth for zirconium crowns, the dentist grinds down much less dental tissue, and, due to the especially high strength of the material, is able to preserve most of the tooth, which also improves the overall situation.
In addition to improved aesthetic qualities, there are other criteria that determine the result and longevity of your investment and serve as a specific quality indicator. It is with the use of zirconium oxide that the quality is not just declared, but rises to a new level. When restoring teeth with zirconium oxide, there is no room for compromise in esthetics, compatibility, strength and functionality.
We manufacture zirconium dioxide structures in our own laboratory and purchase material directly from the manufacturer. In addition, we guarantee you consistently high quality and invite you to a consultation with the preparation of an individual treatment plan.
How long can dental crowns last?
It is impossible to answer this question unequivocally. Much depends on what material the crown is made of and how resistant it is to abrasion. An important role is played by the correct choice of design, taking into account the strength of the chewing load. On average, a crown lasts from five to fifteen years. Very often, the removal and replacement of the crown occurs not because of its wear, but because of problems with the tooth under the crown.
