What are dental crowns ?
Visible part of the teeth are called crowns.We do the chewing with crowns. A dental crown is a prosthesis (usually ceramic) that restores the aesthetics and chewing function of the damaged tooth. The prosthesis replaces the visible part of the tooth which is no longer treatable by conventional treatments (significant caries, broken tooth, etc.). The crown can be placed directly on the tooth or an implant. But it can also be used to form a dental bridge. A dental bridge consists of several crowns and different materials. That depends on your wish and recommendation of the doctor. To summarize Dental implants serve as an artificial tooth root and dental crowns are the visible part of the tooth which we use to chew.

What is a dental bridge?
A bridge is a series of interconnected dentalcrowns. Bridges can put applied on your own teeth or implants can be used as a support.
The composition of the bridges is similar to the crowns. As with crowns, you can choose from a variety of materials: metal-ceramic, zirconia, all-ceramic, ceramic-gold. Your dentist can help you with the choice of material, aesthetic requirements and costs. Ceramic bridges can have the same color as the teeth, which ensures a natural result.
A conventional dental bridge consists of three dental crowns. The first and second teeth are prepared so they can serve as anchors for the missing tooth. The bridge fabricated in the dental laboratory is then glued to the tooth in this manner, and at the end, instead of a gap, the patient has a new tooth.
Zirconia is a very strong and white solid material. Zircon crowns are relatively new compared to ceramic crowns. As a zirconia crown consists of zirconia framework ceramic. The benefits of using this type of crown are many. If you wanted to list the advantages of zirconia crowns, aesthetics and longevity would be at the top. Zirconia crowns are metal-free and metal-free dentures do not react to heat or cold, and do not conduct electricity, and you have no metallic taste in mouth which some patients with metal-ceramic crowns experience. The downside is the price. Zirconia crowns are almost twice as expensive as metal-ceramic crowns.
The metal-ceramic crowns
The metal-ceramic crown is made from a metal frame for better stability and then lined with ceramic for a perfect aesthetics. Thanks to the ceramic, the entire outer part is covered, the teeth look very natural. The advantages of metal-ceramic crowns are their similarity to natural teeth. The metal-ceramic crown can be used for both visible teeth and invisible teeth. Thanks to the metal base, these crowns are very strong and resilient.

- The main advantage of this type of crown is its similarity to natural teeth. Thanks to this advantage, the metal-ceramic crown can be used for both visible teeth and invisible teeth which are at the back of jaw.
- Metal-ceramic crowns offer a longer life than the all-ceramic crowns (zirconia crowns) The reason for this is the metal frame. Metal frames provide better resistance.
