PORCELAIN CROW BRIDGE

It is the process of reducing and covering the teeth with caries, fractures or excessive material loss due to any other reason.

In the absence of one or more teeth, it is the process of reducing the adjacent teeth and filling the gaps by taking support from the special coatings that come to them.

When tooth loss occurs for any reason, neighboring teeth begin to move towards this space. As a result, gingival problems in the adjacent teeth, bone loss due to tipping into this space, deterioration in aesthetics and changes in chewing forces occur. If this gap is not restored with an implant or bridge for a long time, these neighboring teeth may also be lost.

Standard metal “quotni-co” or precious metal “quotau” alloys can be used as infrastructure. Gold is one of the most precious materials used in dentistry, which is compatible with teeth and gums. Therefore, more healthy and aesthetic results are obtained with applications made using precious metals.

They are made of reinforced porcelain. Although many things affect the appearance of crowns, the most important is their response to light. Natural teeth transmit light. As a result, depth and vitality appear in the tooth. Due to the light transmission properties of metal-free porcelain crowns (full porcelain), their depth and vitality are greater, so that the closest results to natural teeth are obtained.

While full porcelains create an aesthetic very similar to the natural tooth structure since they transmit light, there is a dullness and artificiality in metal porcelains, even if they are very well made. For this reason, full porcelains are preferred especially for anterior teeth.

Metal-supported porcelains give the appearance of a dark space in the mouth as if it were not present in some lights (disco, camera flash, etc.). Full porcelains, on the other hand, pass all kinds of light just like natural teeth.

Metal-backed porcelains are mechanically bonded to the tooth. Full porcelain is attached to the tooth mechanically and chemically. Therefore, their retention is much higher than metal supports.

Since there is no metal in its substructure, there is no dark line at the crown – gingival level. A more aesthetic appearance is provided.

When the gingiva recedes, full porcelain preserves their aesthetic appearance, while metal porcelains create a bad appearance in the area where they are combined with the tooth.

There is no risk of allergy to some metals (nickel, etc.) used in the infrastructure in full porcelain.
