The beautiful smile will never go out of style. Unfortunately, over time teeth begin to darken and lose their natural luster.
The good thing here is that the dentistry progress allows restoration of teeth with different problems by different means.

Crowning is the most commonly used method in dentistry to restore partially and severely damaged teeth.

With a dental crown we protect devitalized necrotic pulps, those with large obturation (fillings) and in case of loss of dental tissues over 50%. In addition to restoring the shape and protecting the tooth from breaking, through the crown we manage to restore normal function in the area.
We improve the harmony of the dentition and achieve a high degree of aesthetics. We successfully close the interdental space, which leads to improved and comfortable nutrition, as well as better oral hygiene.

Types of dental crowns

Metal-ceramic crowns

The metal-ceramic crown is made of ceramic and metal, which is hypoallergenic and safe for health. This type of crowns is resistant over time for about 10-15 years. In addition to their resistance, they restore the functions of the teeth, repeating their shape absolutely precisely.
However, the metal-ceramic crowns also have their flaws. From an aesthetic point of view, their results are often unsatisfactory for the patients, as the metal in them is dense and is a barrier to the light.

Porcelain crowns

A distinctive feature of the porcelain structures is their strength. This type of crowns has a high aesthetic value, which makes them preferred among patients. This is because the shade chosen by the patient exactly repeats the color of the natural teeth and does not change over time.
In practice it is impossible to distinguish a fully ceramic crown from a natural tooth.

One big advantage of the ceramic crowns over the metal-ceramic ones is that when they are placed, the removal of the pulp is not necessary. The tooth under the crown remains alive, which protects it from premature destruction.

Zirconium crowns

Zirconium is a rare natural material. In dental practice it is used for the production of zirconium crowns, and their advantages are many, which have proven their effectiveness in dental practice.
At dental clinics Medstom we work with the three types of crowns at the lowest prices in all of eastern Europe.
The High natural aesthetic is one of the main advantages of the zirconium crowns. This is because the zirconium crowns lack a metal skeleton that is transparent under the ceramic and gives the tooth a grayish appearance.

Zirconium is an extremely strong material with a resistance of 1000 to 1200 MPa.
In addition to strength, zirconium crowns have a very high abrasion resistance and cannot be erased even under strong pressure or friction. At the same time, they have a very light, gentle and fine structure. This makes them preferred by people suffering from bruxism (night gnashing of teeth).

But despite the advantages, zirconium structures also have their flaws.
Natural teeth have a natural transparency, which is due to the transparency of the enamel. This problem can be easily solved with the use of special paints that mimic the transparency of the enamel.These types of crowns lack allergic reactions and polymetallism. The body does not react to these bioinert materials. The high aesthetics of the material, as with porcelain crowns, makes them most suitable for the restoration of frontal (front) teeth. These materials do not undergo color changes and retain their luster and freshness indefinitely.

There is one more thing: The constructions made of pressed ceramics and zirconium are produced with the help of a digital technology. This minimizes errors, so the patient quickly gets used to the crowns and does not feel discomfort after placement.
