- a ceramic crown is made of porcelain, it is highly aesthetic as its color is not different from the color of natural teeth, it looks naturally and perfectly imitates one’s own tooth.
- a porcelain-veneered metal crown – the metal crown is fully covered with porcelain and ideally imitates natural teeth. It is the most commonly used prosthetic crown.
- a zirconia crown – it features extreme durability and high light permeability – prosthetic restorations maintain the optical properties of natural teeth.
An excellent method that is used to improve unaesthetic color and shape of the teeth (spacing, fracture, extensive discoloration). These are thin slices of porcelain bonded to the outer (facing) surface of the teeth. Compared to ceramic crowns, it is minimally invasive and safe for the patient.
Two variants are available: aesthetic, i.e., without clamps, and classic, i.e., with visible clamps. The advantage of these dentures is their reduced size, which makes them convenient to use.
A denture with no clamps is a denture mounted on special bolts and telescopes, which makes it stable and it is firmly attached to the substrate. This provides the patient with freedom and comfort during conversations, eating, and guarantees an excellent cosmetic effect.
This is an element which makes it possible to mount a prosthetic crown in the remaining healthy root of the tooth or in the bridge. Two types of posts are available:
- Glass fiber-reinforced posts – flexible and cosmetic, fixed on composite cement, mainly in the anterior region, where the effect of complete translucency is achieved in combination with the all-ceramic crown, as featured by natural teeth.
- Steel post or gold cast post – an element made in a prosthetic laboratory, recommended mainly in the posterior region.
An alternative to extensive composite fillings. Tight and durable, resistant to abrasion and discoloration, this solution allows accurate reconstruction of the anatomical shape of the tooth. Made in a prosthetic laboratory on the basis of a dental impression, they are bonded by a dentist to a properly prepared cavity.
