Today, poor quality food, a large amount of caffeine, and smoking gradually leave a negative imprint on the oral cavity condition. Thus, human teeth are gradually and progressively destroyed.
All this leads to chronic infectious processes in the oral cavity, impaired immunity, frequent viral and bacterial infections. That is why everyone needs to seek highly qualified dental check-ups twice a year.
When do you need to install dental crowns?
Each case is individual and only a doctor can assess your problem. Dental crowns, as a type of dental implants, are installed in the following cases:
- Tooth decay
Modern dentistry most often resorts to the help of crowns when the tooth is destroyed due to trauma or some other reason, but the root is preserved. In this case, if the root retains a sufficient volume of hard tissue, the crown is placed directly on the root. If more stability is needed, special tabs or pins are used.
Over time, teeth tend to lose color, shape, form, all this leads to an unaesthetic appearance. Crowns eliminate this problem and improve the appearance of the teeth.
- Enamel abrasion
Each tooth has a wear period when the enamel is almost completely erased and the filling brings only a short-term effect. In this situation, dental crowns solve a problem, thereby protecting teeth from negative external factors.
- Certain diseases of the teeth and gums
In some pathologies, for example, in periodontal diseases, loosening of the teeth occurs, which is fraught with their complete loss. In such a situation, it is quite often necessary to install temporary crowns that help the tooth to survive until the disease is completely cured.
How to choose between the types of dental crowns
Depending on the material, crowns can be classified as one of the following types: all-metal, metal-ceramic, all-ceramic (metal-free).
When choosing one or another type of crown, a doctor starts from the individual clinical indications, patient̵7;s wishes, aesthetic expectations, and, of course, the cost of such a crown.
- Metal crowns
Metal crowns are the oldest type of crown, however, still widely used today.
Metal crowns withstand maximum chewing loads and perfectly restore the chewing function, but lose in aesthetic features to all other types of crowns.
- Porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM)
Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are an average option, meeting the requirements of reliability and aesthetics, as well as being approximately in the center of the price range.
The inner invisible part of such a structure is cast from metal, while the outer one, which is visible, is made of ceramics, which, in color and texture, can imitate natural tooth enamel and has high quality.
The cermet has its drawbacks — translucency of the frame or its bleed-through with decreasing gums. However, using the latest materials such as zirconia (white metal) can solve this problem as well.
Crowns based on zirconium dioxide provide strength comparable to metal ceramics, high light transmittance, and aesthetics like all-ceramic crowns.
- Ceramic crowns
Ceramic crowns are rightfully recognized as one of the most expensive but at the same time the most aesthetic ones.
Ceramic has two undeniable advantages:
- Possibility of individual designs indistinguishable in color and transparency from natural teeth.
- Biocompatibility of ceramics as a material.
Thus, in the absence of any metal impurities, these crowns are not subject to oxidation and are the best option for installation in the smile zone.
