Ceramic crowns are used to treat extensive tooth damage. Ceramic crowns can be used to restore a tooth to its original state, while maintaining high aesthetics and longevity. There are several types of materials from which crowns can be made. The choice of material depends on the specific condition and requirements of the patient.
In the case of losing one or more teeth, one option is to make a bridge. After a thorough examination of the condition of the residual teeth and determination of their biological quality, it is necessary to sand the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. When multiple teeth are lost, it is often necessary to sand more than two adjacent teeth. The treatment is performed under local anaesthesia, so it is painless.
In the first stage, the tooth is sanded, impressions are made, and a temporary resin crown is fitted to protect the tooth throughout the treatment. The temporary crown allows the patient to eat and talk without problems. Those around you will not even notice that dental treatment is currently in progress. In the second stage, the temporary crown is removed and replaced with the definitive crown.
Once the teeth have been ground, impressions are made, based on which the dental technician makes a replacement. During the time until a definitive replacement is made, ground teeth are protected by a temporary bridge. So the patient always leaves the clinic with teeth. After the final bridge is made, it is firmly cemented to the ground teeth.
