What is the Full Ceramic Crowns?
The method of coating applied to restore worn, broken or partially decayed teeth is called crown coating. This method, which is widely used today, is preferred both to protect the teeth, to obtain a more beautiful appearance and to strengthen the teeth. This method is frequently used to strengthen weak and cracked teeth.
Which Materials Are Used In Crown Coating?
Crowns used in coating application can be made of many different materials. Because the ceramic is more resistant to staining and abrasion, full ceramic crowns are generally preferred. They are also preferred because they offer a natural appearance and are more aesthetic. In addition to ceramic, crown veneers are produced from materials such as composite, acrylic and even gold. Dentists recommend choosing materials that offer the closest view to the natural appearance of the teeth.
Is the Care of Crown Crown Teeth Different?
People who have crown crowned teeth should brush their teeth twice a day like everyone else and clean their teeth regularly with dental floss. Cleaning the points where teeth and gums meet is of great importance in the maintenance of coatings. To prolong the life of crowns, very hard foods should not be consumed and teeth should be examined regularly.
What is the Difference of Full Porcelain Crowns?
Full porcelain crowns, also called “full porcelain“, are the closest to the natural tooth appearance. Since they pass all kinds of light, there is no loss of appearance in the teeth in some lights. Another advantage is that they are far from a dull and artificial appearance. With these features, they are often considered natural teeth.
Metal support is not used in the infrastructure of this coating application. Therefore, there is no metal line between the crown and the gingiva and a more aesthetic appearance appears. In addition, while metal supports may have an allergic reaction to the metal materials used, there is no such risk in full porcelain.
Metal-Free Porcelain Crown Bridges:
When any of the teeth is exposed to a loss of substance, cavities occur in the tooth and the adjacent tooth moves towards this gap. Thus, the intraoral tooth structure and shape deteriorates. Therefore, mouth closure and chewing force are also affected. If these gaps are not filled for a long time, the gap increases and the surrounding teeth are also affected.
For this reason, these gaps are filled with crowns or bridges according to the size and number of the gap. Metal support is used in these processes. However, today, with cosmetic dentistry aesthetic solutions, full porcelain crown bridges without metal support can provide removal of intraoral cavities without using any metal.
Features of Full Porcelain Crown Bridges without Metal Support:
They are made of toughened porcelain. Although many things affect the appearance of crowns, the most important is their reaction to light. Natural teeth are translucent. As a result, depth and vitality appear in the tooth. Due to the light transmission properties of porcelain crowns without metal support (full porcelain), their depth and vitality are higher, so that the closest results to the natural tooth are obtained.
While full porcelains create a very similar aesthetic to natural tooth structure as they pass light, there is a dullness and artificiality in metal porcelains even if they are very well made. For this reason, full porcelains are preferred especially for the front teeth.
Metal-supported porcelains give the image of a dark space in some lights (disco, camera flash, etc.) Full porcelain, on the other hand, passes all kinds of light just like natural teeth.
Metal-supported porcelains are mechanically bonded to the tooth. Full porcelains are attached to the teeth mechanically and chemically.
Therefore, their retention is much higher than metal supported ones. Since there is no metal in the substrate, there is no dark line at the crown – gingiva level. A more aesthetic appearance is provided.
Even when the gums are receded, full porcelains maintain their aesthetic appearance, while metal porcelains can create a dark appearance in the area where they combine with the tooth.
There is no risk of allergy against some metals used in the infrastructure (nickel etc.) in full porcelain.
Due to the light transmission properties of porcelain crowns without metal support (FULL PORCELAINS), their depth and vitality are higher, so results closest to natural teeth are obtained.
Advantages in general:
- While full porcelains create a very similar aesthetic to natural tooth structure, metal porcelains have a dullness and artificiality even if they are made very well. For this reason, full porcelains can be preferred, especially for the front teeth.
- Metal-backed porcelains give the appearance of a dark space in some lights (disco, camera flash, etc.) as if they were absent in the mouth. Full porcelains, like natural teeth, pass all kinds of light (Translucense feature).
- Metal supported porcelains are mechanically bonded to the teeth. Full porcelains are attached to the teeth mechanically and chemically.
- Since there is no metal in its substructure, there is no dark line at the crown – gingiva level. A more aesthetic appearance is provided.
- When the gums are receded, full porcelains maintain their aesthetic appearance, while metal porcelains create a bad appearance in the area where they join the tooth.
- There is no risk of allergy to some metals used in the infrastructure (such as nickel allergy) in full porcelains.
- Form and coloring can be done in the most natural way that is closest to the natural tooth.
Zirconium / Metal Supported Crowns and Bridges
Zirconium material is actually a metal that is white in colour. It has a very high resistance against pressure. But it is also a beautiful material with light transmission (less than e-max) and tissue-friendly.
While zirconium porcelains provide a good enough aesthetic and natural appearance in the front teeth, they are more preferred today because they are resistant in the actual posterior teeth.
- Seamless infrastructure for metal allergy sufferers
- They are as durable as metal ceramics (almost twice the pressure that can be in the mouth)
- They are satisfactory enough with their light transmittance.
In this system, while using zirconium alloy, which is a white colour instead of metal, as a substructure, it is transformed into aesthetic advantage, while it stands out from other dental materials with its mechanical resistance, biological compatibility and high fracture resistance.
E- Max / Empress Porcelain Crowns
E-max is a specially reinforced ceramic, its light transmittance is very high and it is the closest material to natural teeth. E-max porcelains are generally preferred for the most aesthetic results.
In addition to its high aesthetic advantage, it should not be preferred in bridges exceeding 3 members or in places where very high pressure is likely to be encountered.
How Are Full Ceramic Crown Teeth Made? Treatment Stages
How are full ceramic coatings made? What are its usage and advantages to the person? These are the most important questions in the minds of those who have colour problems and appearance concerns. Ceramic coating is preferred because it is an easy and painless process.
Although ceramic coating is higher than other coatings in terms of price, its functionality and long-term use affects the ceramic coating preferences of the patients.
While making full ceramic coating, firstly, the teeth are X-rayed. Fractures and decays in the teeth are removed, filling is made in the necessary places. Then, the teeth are measured for the full ceramic crown. After the measurement, full ceramic crowns taken from the laboratory are placed on the teeth and it is checked whether there is any compatibility problem.
Necessary arrangements are made for the teeth to adapt. If there is not enough teeth to support the ceramic veneer crown, the foundation can be established using a post. At the end of 2 sessions, crown tooth coating is completed and the patient can easily continue his daily life.
For full ceramic crown tooth coating, which is completed in a short time, it is necessary to see dentists who are experts in aesthetic treatments. Full ceramic crown operations should be done according to appropriate criteria.
Advantages of Full Ceramic Crown Treatment
While full ceramic coated teeth replace your lost teeth, they also help you gain your dental functions. While the closest appearance to natural teeth is obtained, there is no sensitivity to hot or cold at the same time.
Since full ceramic crowns are not metal based, less abrasion is seen on the teeth. The full ceramic coating does not pose any risk of allergies. You will not have any trouble eating and drinking with your full ceramic coating teeth that are fully compatible with the mouth.
Ceramic tooth coating prices are determined according to the number of teeth to be applied, the quality of the coating material, and whether different dental treatments are required. You can get full ceramic coating price information after the first inspection.
