This is a prosthetic product that forms an artificial shell of the treated tooth. With its shape and color, it faithfully imitates the original tooth.
Ceramic dental crowns can replace endodontically treated or otherwise damaged teeth, which have retained the preserved root. If the tooth is completely missing, we use an artificial dental crown as part of a dental implant. This option is the best solution in the case of complete tooth loss, both aesthetically and functionally. Unlike veneers and overlays, crowns replace the individual teeth as a whole.
How does it work?
We perform the treatment under local anesthesia. We grind the tooth on a stump with a precise step end. We will make an exact tooth impression and choose a color shade. In the meantime, a temporary resin crown can be made. In the dental laboratory, a final crown is then prepared according to the imprint. At the next visit, we remove the temporary crown and fix the final one, which can be entirely ceramic, or a mixture of metal and ceramic, in which the metal core is covered with a ceramic outer shell. The precise crown fully rehabilitates the tooth and the patient perceives it as their own. Caring for a crown is very similar to caring for your own teeth, and following careful oral hygiene is a must.
