When the majority of the tooth structure has deteriorated, dental crowns are the go-to solution! They best compensate for all the lost natural features of your teeth and protect the remaining, healthy ones from further deterioration!
Full ceramic crowns are the state of the art in dental medicine today.
There are several types of ceramic crowns, from metal ceramic and titanium ceramic to all ceramic crowns. All ceramic crowns are state of the art in current dental medicine. They mimic the natural tooth most faithfully and are best for the gums. They are fully biocompatible.
All ceramic crowns are of limited firmness, which means that they cannot sustain great pressure (e.g. if they support some lost teeth within a bridge). In order to account for this, metal, titanium or zirconium substructures are used onto which ceramics are then applied. In this case, zirconium represents the best choice because it is in the color of the tooth, and it is not necessary to apply ceramic layers in order to hide metal or titanium. Moreover, zirconium enables illumination of the gums, just like in natural teeth, which significantly contributes to esthetics.
