Dental Crowns

Wherever you are the smile is always in style!

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are prosthetic restorations which are fixed (cemented) onto abutment teeth or implants in order to restore dental esthetics and function.

When Do We Use Dental Crowns?
1. When restoration using large fillings is esthetically and functionally inadequate
2. While restoring a tooth after endodontic treatment, which leaves it fragile, dehydrated and prone to cracking
3. In cases of unsatisfactory appearance of the natural tooth
4. In cases of tooth wear

Metal-Ceramic Crowns

They consist of a metal base fused to
a crown made out of layered ceramics.

Characteristics:

  • Excellent mechanical features
  • Good esthetic features
  • Most common patients’ choice

Full Ceramic Crowns

They are made out of carved blocks of thick
ceramics onto which thin porcelain layers are applied.

Characteristics:

  • Superior esthetic features
  • Translucence (transparency) – permitting light to pass through
  • Solidity and biocompatibility
  • Great imitation of the natural tooth
  • Minimal tooth preparation

Zirconia-Ceramic Crowns

zirconium-oxide base fused to a ceramic crown.

Characteristics:
