Porcelain crown made of pressed ceramic material

What are the characteristics of a pressed ceramic crown?

It is made by a modern procedure: the material is pressed with high pressure, so it becomes mechanically strong, almost as hard as titanium.

The whole crown is made of one ceramic block, so it is aesthetic and does not contain a metallic part. It does not cause any allergic symptoms, so we recommend it for those who are sensitive to metals.

Before-After pressed ceramic crown

The pressed ceramic (porcelain) crown is mainly applied for the incisors, because of the material’s identical colors. The indication of the porcelain crown is making single crowns in the frontal region of the dental arch.

The advantage of the porcelain crown is that less tooth material is needed to be removed compared to the traditional methods, the dentist removes only a slight layer of the tooth.

 

The advantages of the pressed ceramic crown

Modern dentistry applies metal-free prostheses. The pressed ceramic crown does not contain any kind of metal, so it is recommended for those who are allergic to metals. This is a 100% metal-free crown, it is antiallergic and has a high biocompatibility.

The whole crown is made of ceramic material, so it has a higher esthetic effect compared with those that contain metal. With this, the natural color of your tooth can be restored. The translucency of the porcelain is similar to the human teeth.

Pressed ceramic crowns are mechanically stable, durable, and a perfect choice for the frontal region of the dental arch. It fits perfectly onto the prepared tooth. Another advantage is that less tooth material is needed to be removed, so there is less chance to harm the pulp tissue.

 

How do we make pressed ceramic crowns in Naturadent laser dentistry?

In case you would like to change your traditional crown for an esthetic porcelain one, or you just think you might need to get a crown, do not hesitate to find us, we are kindly waiting for you for a dental check-up.

At this first appointment, we make a panoramic X-ray to get a panoramic view of the status of your teeth under and above the soft tissues.

 

Getting a porcelain crown is a pain-free procedure!

In case we prepare the tooth for a crown, we use local anesthesia. If it is needed, after removing the decayed parts, we rebuild the shape that is optimal for putting a crown on it. If the tooth is root-canal filled, a tooth-colored special stick might be needed to get glued in to strengthen the structure.

After taking impressions, a dental technician is the one who makes the crown. Until the crown-making is in progress, you get a provisional crown, which can be made immediately at the side of the chair, or with a few days’ waiting time in the dental laboratory.

If the crown is ready, we try it in. If you think it has the perfect color, shape, and function, we permanently cemented it in.

 

What is the role of a laser in the process of making a porcelain crown?

Before the permanent cementation, we treat your gingiva with a laser to get a bacteria- and saliva-free surface. With the help of a laser, we can fix the crown onto a bacteria-free, sterile surface, which makes this crown a life-long solution.
