coroana dentara

When tooth decay causes large destruction, dental fillings are no longer sufficient to ensure a strong restoration of the teeth and treatment with dental crowns is recommended. A dental crown is a dental (more precisely prosthetic) work that covers or wraps the visible part of a tooth, restoring its aesthetics and functionality.

The steps to make a dental crown

  • Sanding - teeth that have suffered destruction must be cleaned of all traces of carious tissue and must be sanded so that they can receive a dental crown.
  • Amprinting - an impression is made and sent to the dental laboratory
  • Cementing - in the next stage, various samples are taken to check what has been done by the dental technician, the colour of the dental crowns is determined and finally the dental crowns are fixed by temporary or permanent cementation.

The prices of a dental crown vary considerably, depending on the materials from which these dental crowns are made, reflecting their quality and longevity. The main types of dental crowns are as follows:

  • Metal-ceramic dental crown - has a metal supporting framework covered by a ceramic layer
  • Ceramic crown on zirconium support - it is lighter than the dental crown on metal support, it is perfectly biocompatible and translucent, thus being the most recommended option from an aesthetic point of view.
    • Full ceramic crown - It is made entirely of ceramic with no metal or zirconium skeleton. It is used in the front areas of the oral cavity (incisors in particular) in cases where aesthetic demands are very high.
