Full porcelain crown
Porcelain tooth replacement
Full porcelain crowns are tooth replacements that are fully free of metal. This type of tooth replacement suits the highest aesthetic requirements and is very similar to the original tooth, while it can be used in patients suffering from metal allergies.
The only disadvantage of the full porcelain crown is that its flexural strength is insufficient for preparing a bridge, therefore only standalone crowns may be made from full porcelain for the upper incisors.
After polishing and preparing the tooth, the dentist takes an imprint and sends it to the dental technology lab, where the crown is made with pressing.
At the subsequent testing, the dentist and the dental technician involve the patient to jointly ensure that the replacement satisfies all functional and aesthetic requirements and is easy to clean for the patient.
The finished dental artefact is fixed by luting cement by the treating physician.
