Metal-free crowns as their first representative fit perfectly into the dentition, especially in situations where not all teeth are compensated but only some of them because the color we can get by making these dental crowns is closest to the color of natural teeth.
Metal-ceramic crowns have a metal alloy inside, on which ceramics are applied on the outside in order to achieve aesthetic effects, while metal-free crowns are made entirely of ceramic or have zirconium as a base (zirconium crown).
Dental crowns made of zirconium have excellent aesthetic and mechanical properties. It has experienced its expansion in dentistry due to the possibility of making metal-wide bridges of a large range. With the appearance of this material, a turning point was made in the technology of making dental crowns and dental bridges, as well as the issue of crowns made of lithium-disilicate ceramics, which also has outstanding aesthetic properties.
Solving multiple problems
“When a patient is missing one or more teeth, the construction of the bridge stabilizes the bite and prevents the movement of adjacent teeth towards the empty space. Unlike dentures, dental bridges and dental crowns are cemented and cannot be moved or removed.
Missing teeth replace dental crowns or dental bridges that are made in laboratories, and can be made of different types of materials, so we can divide them into two groups: metal-ceramic crowns or metal-free crowns.
Metal-free crowns are made with a special technology of making the so-called. CAD / CAM technology.
When are dental crowns installed and when are dental bridges installed?
Dental crowns are used as a replacement on the tooth itself, and bridges are made in case of defects of several teeth, the condition is that there are stable and healthy teeth on which future bridges will be attached. If they do not exist, dental implants are installed that serve as supports for the construction (dental bridge). The patient must meet several conditions to make a dental bridge, and the basic two are: the abutment teeth must be in good condition to be able to accept the load and the surrounding tissue must be healthy.
