In the past, crowns and dental bridges were made of metal, being long-lasting and relatively inexpensive. The metal-ceramic crowns appeared as a prosthetic option in restoration later, being similar to natural teeth appearance and offered resistance, durability and precision.
However, it is difficult to obtain the translucency of natural teeth in a restauration that comprises metal. The light does not pass through the metal as it does through natural teeth, leaving a lifeless look. In addition, over time, metal can leave a dark crest after the gum retracts.
Why metal-free crowns are a wise alternative?
Ceramic dental crowns and zirconium dental crowns are the label of dental work quality, being top quality on this segment, most often made by 3D CAD / CAM computerized technology, the most modern and accurate dental restoration worldwide.
Full ceramic and zirconium oxide crowns are biocompatible and meet the highest esthetic expectations. Therefore, light can shine through these restorations, as it does through natural teeth, in addition, the adjacent gum will not present dark edges.
In modern dentistry, they are the top reference for dental crowns due to their increased resistance over time and provision of a natural teeth glow.
Advantages of metal-free dental crowns include:
- lack of metal content, equivalent to lack of allergic reaction to metal;
- color stability;
- wear resistance;
- reduced thermal conduction, which may protect the dental nerve tissue;
- need for minimally-invasive teeth preparation;
- redefining the smile and color of teeth;
- a long-term investment.
For the manufacture of non-metal dental crowns at Grandismedozon clinic, we use compressed or monolithic IPS emax or ceramic zirconia using 3D CAD / CAM computer-aided manufacture technology.
Your smile deserves something more precious than metal! Now you can bring natural beauty and glow to your smile!
