Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns
This is the system where porcelain is fused to metal crowns in the substructure of the porcelain of which metal alloy is used. Porcelain fused to metal crowns may be used quite easily in partial tooth deficiencies or in cases where tooth tissue is insufficient for filling treatment and especially for the purpose of preventing tooth fracture which might occur on teeth to which root canal therapy has been applied. Sufficient aesthetic outcomes cannot be obtained at all times due to less luminous transmittance of metal supported crowns. The phase of treatment is completed in approximately 1 week.
Zirconium Crown Restorations
As an alternative to classical porcelain fused to metal crowns, zirconium crowns are the aesthetic systems that are used in posterior sites, in which zirconium alloy, which is a white color, is used instead of metal. The advantage of this system is that they are aesthetic and can be used in anterior teeth and they are resistant so as to be able to be used in posterior teeth. Thus, they provide the aesthetic need of patients in rear spaces and increase the life quality of the person.
The treatment with zirconium crowns is completed in a process of approximately 7-10 days.
