What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns are used in cosmetic dentistry to correct dental imperfections such as :
Dental crowns are used when the patient’s tooth has a failing structure and can no longer support a filling or veneer. Dental crowns make teeth stronger and more beautiful, thus adding an aesthetic touch. They help rebuild imperfect teeth.
However, these crowns can only be used when the tooth root is still usable. Dental crowns have many advantages. In fact, there are several types of crowns. Among these, the metal-free crown stands out.
Why a metal-free crown?
The metal-free crown is one of the many dental prostheses used in cosmetic dentistry. Resistant and very discreet, it guarantees the strength and beauty of teeth that were thought to be lost. The metal-free crown can, for example, invigorate a weakened tooth, preventing it from breaking. It can restore a tooth that no longer had vitality, while maintaining its natural appearance.
The metal-free crown restores a tooth to its original shape and can even cover it if it was misshapen at the base. The life span of the tooth is significantly increased. The metal-free crown allows the tooth to fight bacteria effectively, thus limiting the risk of cavities. Metal-free crowns are used to replace dead, decayed, discoloured or leaded teeth. They can also be used to replace broken teeth or teeth that no longer have healthy material. With metal-free crowns, you can make your teeth look much more beautiful and their appearance is much better. Dental implants or malformed teeth can also be covered. Today, metal-free crowns are one of the most popular dentures for patients. The popularity of metal-free crowns in cosmetic dentistry Metal-free crowns are very popular for many reasons. Unlike metal crowns, metal-free crowns do not show metal at the base of the tooth. This makes them more aesthetically pleasing. In addition, metal-free crowns are biocompatible with different body tissues. The gingiva and the metal-free crown have an exceptional alchemy. Also, with metal-free crowns, there is no risk of corrosion, as is the case with metal crowns. Metal-free crowns blend in completely with the natural tooth enamel, which reassures the patient. However, metal-free crowns are not recommended for all types of teeth. Also, there are specific cases for which metal-free crowns are not suitable. Installation of the metal-free crown To place a metal-free crown on teeth, the dentist follows several steps. First, he prepares the tooth and then the grinding wheel. Rest assured, the patient is placed under local anesthetic during the process. The dentist and the dental technician create a custom-made crown using impressions of the tooth to be replaced. Once the crown is ready, it will be installed on the tooth. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
