What are metal-ceramic crowns used for
Metal-ceramic dental crowns are used in cases when the tooth is severely damaged and it is necessary to make a safe construction for the rest of the tooth. This construction can be made only of a solid but light frame made of special materials and alloys. Your dentist will make a cast cap for the tooth to prepare it for implantation. The distance between the dental recess and the metal cap is less than several dozens of microns. The next thing your dentist will have to do is to make the tooth. He should consider peculiarities of all adjacent teeth and jaw structure.
Both metal and ceramics are chosen basing on individual requests. Metal-ceramic dental crowns made of alloys of noble metals and titanium possess supreme quality.
