Metaloceramic crowns (or metal-ceramic crowns) fall into fixed prosthetics that are consist of a metal base (cap) and ceramics. They are used when a tooth cannot be properly fixed with a traditional filling, or in situations when you need to replace one or more teeth – a metaloceramic bridge.
The step-by-step making of a metaloceramic crown includes tooth honing and making a dental imprint. Based on the dental imprint a dental technician makes the metal base. The metal crown base is made of precious or non-precious alloys (gold, palladium, cobalt or chrome).
We use only metals made by quality manufacturers, eg. Ivoclar or Remanium. These metals are nickle-free, which makes them anti-allergic.
Ceramic layers are applied over the metal base and the goal is to achieve a natural and aesthethically pleasing look in shape, colour and teeth size. Corrections are made in agreement with the patient. Some of the manufacturers whose ceramic products we use are Zirkonzahn or Ivoclar.
