Full Ceramic Crowns
It is the process of covering and renewing worn, worn or lost teeth. Our natural teeth transmit light. When we lose our natural teeth, the porcelain-on-metal application used in crown and bridge prostheses made to replace them does not transmit light due to metal. For this reason, it looks more matte and artificial. Especially in the anterior region and in cases where the natural tooth and the tooth made are side by side, this artificiality becomes very noticeable. For a better aesthetic and naturalness, reinforced porcelain is used in the infrastructure of the anterior region crowns. Depth and liveliness are much better, as this reinforced porcelain substructure and porcelain superstructure pass light close to the natural tooth. It looks quite realistic and is not easy to distinguish from a natural tooth. It does not form a dark color like metal supported prostheses at the junction with the gingiva.
What are the Disadvantages of Full Ceramic Crowns?
- Although reinforced porcelain is not as resistant as metal, the risk of breakage is higher than metal-supported porcelain.
- Its cost is much higher than metal-supported porcelain. It is a sensitive method, the natural tooth preparation stage should be done meticulously.
- Full ceramic bridges: It is used in cases of missing teeth in the anterior region. The infrastructure obtained by compressing the reinforced porcelain used in full ceramic crowns in special machines is used.
- This method is used in bridge construction because the infrastructure resistance is more important.
- The light transmittance is close to the natural tooth. Gum fit is good. It is widely used in the anterior region due to its aesthetic superiority, but is not preferred in the posterior regions because it is not strong enough against chewing resistance.
What are the Advantages of Full Ceramic Crowns?
- The fact that full ceramic crowns transmit light gives them a natural tooth appearance. The anterior region, where aesthetics is important, is much superior to metal-supported porcelains in teeth.
- Metal-backed porcelains look dull and very artificial in the front area that receives intense light. Metal-supported porcelains are attached to the tooth mechanically, full-ceramic porcelains are superior in terms of retention as they are mechanically and chemically bonded to the tooth.
- Metal-supported porcelains sometimes cause a dark appearance at the junction with the gingiva. Sometimes they cause the gingiva to turn purple.
- Since it does not contain metal in all-ceramic veneer crowns, such problems are not encountered.
- Since its tissue compatibility is much better than metal, it does not cause allergic reactions and irritations in the gingiva.
