Porcelain on Metal Crowns
Porcelain fused to metal Crowns remain one of dentistry’s primary restorations – they are strong and reliable. Often used in the molar regions as they can withstand considerable biting force; these are still the most popular crowns.
Depending upon the number of Crowns that may be needed, 5 working days are usually required.
Construction – Using the impression taken by the dentist, a metal thimble base is cast in noble alloy then veneered with layers of porcelain and fired in a kiln fusing the porcelain to the metal thimble.
Porcelain on Gold Crowns
Porcelain fused to gold Crowns are the strongest and longest lasting Crowns because of the inherent strength advantage of a gold base. These Crowns are particularly used for back teeth restoration.
Construction – The construction technique is similar to the Porcelain fused to metal Crowns. All Bridge and Crown work is produced by our in-house laboratory and carries a 5 year Guarantee.
Our dental clinics are one of the most advanced dental surgeries in Europe. We are the only dental facility to have its own in-house laboratory of such a size and sophistication in Macedonia.
We only use the very best materials available.
Our Dental Crown Procedure
Dental Crown treatment is arranged in the following steps:
• Preparation of the teeth
• Impression taking
• Construction of the crown
• Insertion of the final Crown
Short term Temporary Crowns (FREE of charge) will usually be fitted during the construction period.
How long your Crowns will last depends upon a number of factors – the quality of the materials used and the care taken during construction – how well they have been adjusted – how you treat them.
Good quality Crowns like the ones we use here at Kings Medical Dental, that are well looked after should last 20 – 30 years.
The good health of the supporting root / Implant and gums is essential in maintaining your Crowns. This necessitates a good oral hygiene routine at home of brushing twice daily and flossing between teeth once a day to help prevent plaque and bacteria accumulating.
Our dental clinics also recommend the daily use of an anti-bacterial mouthwash.
