High-End Dental Crowns
Harmony and Robustness
A dental crown is a type of full-coverage dental restoration in terms of fully caping its foundation i.e tooth or dental implant. Whenever a crown is placed to a natural tooth, It serves to restore its stiffness, shape, colour and function. Dental crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. They are used to improve the strength and appearance of teeth. A dental crown is typically bonded to its foundation abutment.
In areas with high aesthetic expectations, as in upper front maxilla or lower front mandible, metal-free systems are the optimum choice mainly addressing e-max, Empress II and zirconia (zirconium oxide).
Dental Crowns – Indications
The digital CAD/CAM route enhances fitting to the foundation tooth/implant. Unlikely,the analogue route ,i.e. lab, may involve distortion of the final restoration.
Crowns are also applied over implants. In such cases implant-supported crowns are the state-of-the-art solution in order to restore an edentulous (toothless) area not only in terms of function, but also of natural appearance.
