Metal – CERAMIC RESTORATION
This is a summary of the name of the processes in which the tooth-coloured porcelain are imprinted onto a metal frame.
Porcelain is burnt onto a nickel free cobalt-chromium alloy
One of the oldest type of materials. it is Prepared by using a conventional casting technique, in which the dental technician waxes up the heated metal and pours it into the place of the embedded wax. Then it is possible to work from the surface and after this procedure, burn the porcelain onto it in layers.
The advantage is that thanks to the routine technique, it’s suitable for mass production, so the price is very affordable. Due to its metallic strength and resistance to abrasion into the chewing zone, a strong and functional prosthesis can be created. Due to the elasticity of the metal used it does not rigidly transmit the chewing force to the surrounding tissues, thus recommended for periodontitis patients as well. However big disadvantage is that if the gum recedes, it becomes visible as a black stripe portion and the metal is unfavourable especially at the front section. Or in case the porcelain bounces off, then it is difficult to repair.
Gold has been used since antiquity in making various restorations. Dental technology has also adapted its use in creating a thin film or through the cast technique. A big advantage is that it is completely tissue-friendly and antibacterial, non-allergenic. In addition, gold restorations when oral hygiene is properly maintained it is highly unlikely to develop a tooth decay, inflammation and also due to the softness, easy to form and polish. Thanks to a yellowish colour, which is similar to the tooth dentin, life-like substitutions can be made. A big downside is the high price.
Titanium ceramic restoration
The use of titanium is a relatively new technology in dentistry. The implants and CAD / CAM (computer-controlled freezing) technology spreading has gained ground in the field of dental restorations. We are talking about a well-resistant, fully biocompatible material. Titanium causes allergy to no one, because all the implantable artificial joint implant and dentistry implants are also made from this material. It is very precisely made, as it eliminates the human factor of computerized procedures. Good wear-resistant, lightweight material, great disadvantage of the greycolour, which to some extent show through porcelain, and so in case of gum regression the metal edging becomes visible. Front region is therefore not recommended, but in the chewing zone it’s perfect, high-quality restorations can be created from it.
Applicable on all types of fixed prosthesis available, we take our full guarantee for 3 years (see HERE), in case of material defects, if patient adheres to the conditions specified in the guarantee.
