Ceramic crowns help to replace the missing part of the tooth or to strengthen the tooth with treated canals. Dental crowns are distinguished by their material – metal-ceramic crowns, full ceramic crowns (zircon or Emax). These two types of dental crowns differ in their aesthetic properties and strength.
In the case of tooth decay, trauma or some endodontic procedures (root canal treatment), when a great part of the hard tooth tissue is lost, the crown is a suitable and possible solution. Treatment takes place in several stages. A temporary crown has to be attached to the tooth during the production of a metal-ceramic or full-ceramic crown.
