Our dentists have a lot of experience in making all kinds of removable and non-removable constructions, crowns, bridges, veneers, in-lays, on-lays, dentures. While a permanent construction is made, the patient is supported with the temporary crowns. Alloys based on gold and used as a framework of a porcelain device are very resistable to damages as the wear rate of gold is about the same as that of the tooth enamel. They fit the tooth very well. At the same time traditional crowns made of Ni-Chrome alloys do not fit as well and do not withstand biting pressure. Porcelain-fused-to-gold crowns give us perfect esthetic results as they do not darken. We also make an all-porcelain crowns which possess translucency that makes them the most cosmetically pleasing of all other crowns. If you want to change the shape or the color of your front teeth, there is no need to cover the entire teeth set with the crowns, you can simply choose veneers. The front surface of a tooth is prepared and covered with ceramics or light-cured materials.
Veneers are made of porcelain ; they are 0.4-0.8 mm thick. Veneers cover front teeth in cases of tooth pigmentation or destruction. Veneers give us the opportunity to achieve perfect shape and colour, protecting teeth simultaneously. As the result, a patient receives a beautiful bright smile while having maximum of his teeth tissue saved. Veneers are made according to the patient’s wishes on colour, size and shape of teeth. Veneers are safe, durable and long-lasting.
Cases in which veneers are used:
- Broken teeth
- Spaces between teeth
- Deep cervical defects
- Defects of shape
- Old fillings which differ from natural teeth
- “Tetracycline teeth”
- Defects which resulted from traumas or root canal treatment
Veneers don’t have to be specifically treated or cleaned once they are in the oral cavity. It’s enough to brush them regularly and use floss. Advantages:
Porcelain veneers have lots of advantages in comparison to other methods in dental cosmetology.
First of all, veneers make teeth look more natural and healthy because dental porcelain fully imitates the external layer of the teeth.
Secondly, porcelain veneers never get stained. Porcelain is smooth and non-penetratable, that’s why stains never remain on the veneer’s surface. You will never have problems with stains from coffee, tea or tobacco.
All of your ideas of shape and colour can be brought to life with porcelain veneers.
With the growth of technical opportunities in the field of ceramic treatment, now there’s a chance to use porcelain on-lays instead of massive restorations.
There is a big difference between porcelain on-lays and fillings:
- Fillings are made of certain material right in the patient’s mouth. An on-lay is made by a dental technician and than it is fixed on the tooth by the doctor.
- Ceramic on-lays have higher durability than composite fillings.
- It’s a lot easier to adjust the necessary colour using porcelain on-lays rather than using fillings.
The doctor prepares the tooth in order to make an on-lay. Then he is makes an imprint with A-Silicone. Gypsum model is made of the imprint by the dental technician, and finally, the on-lay is made.
On-lays can also be made of composite and metal, including gold.
Advantages of on-lays:
- On-lays have higher durability than fillings. Big fillings are not strong enough to stand the chewing pressure. Therefore, porcelain on-lays strengthen and protect teeth.
- Porcelain on-lays have good esthetics. They completely imitate the natural colour of the teeth.
- On-lays strictly repeat the anatomical shape of the teeth
- Porcelain on-lays don’t change colour as the time passes, there are no coffee or tobacco stains on ceramics.
- An on-lay can be made instead of a crown
Replacement of teeth defects with all-porcelain crowns is the most modern method which combines both high durability and esthetics. These properties along with biocompatibility make porcelain have no equals for the prosthetic treatment of both front teeth and molars. This technology was invented in Europe.
All-porcelain crowns have the same durability as the porcelain-fused-to-metal ones, but all-porcelain crowns provide better esthetics.
Oxide of Zircone is used for making:
- Separate crowns
- Prosthetic treatment after implantology
Oxide of Zircone is white, which gives us an opportunity to imitate the natural colour of your teeth. During the treatment with the use of porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns it’s impossible to achieve such results. In order to exclude the translucency of metal through the layer of ceramics in the case of porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns opaquers are used. That’s the reason why porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns don’t have the colour deepness. Gums don’t receive light from the inside, as they do in the areas with natural teeth, that’s why gums in the area of crowns look darker. When all-porcelain crowns are made, the white base covered with ceramics is used- as a result we achieve fantastic esthetics. In the case of all-porcelain crowns gums are lightened from inside and look natural.
Crowns from pressed porcelain
So what are the objectives of pressed porcelain?
First of all, because of translucency and ability to conduct light, porcelain has perfect esthetics.
Another advantage is the highest strictness of adjoining of the crown to the tooth surface. That gives an opportunity to prepare tooth superior to the gum level.
Therefore, all-porcelain crowns give us beautiful esthetics, high durability, natural colour and health of the teeth and gums.
