How do crowns and bridges act?

Teeth structure in the sides of rotten and dead teeth is shaved all around to create enough space for ceramic porcelain. After shaving, impressions of the teeth are made. Next, impressions which serve as a model will be given to the dental lab to make a crown. The temporary bridge is made from Acrylic to protect your teeth. Final crown is made in a way that has a natural form of tooth and you don’t feel any difference in your mouth. After that the crown is adjoined to your teeth by cement in a way that its appearance does not differ from removed tooth and looks natural.

Dentists can use various types of prosthesis for teeth restoration.

In order to extend life span of inserted prosthesis, patient must be regularly under supervision of health observation by the dentist.

For front teeth, restoration with full ceramic prosthesis should not only consider the beauty aspect but also compatibility of fabricated prosthesis with structure around the teeth is more important. To achieve ideal beauty, examination of facial indicators in relation between body and teeth is necessary.

Nowadays, with the technology development we can achieve better and more desirable results by use of full ceramic materials which have the longest life span and can be used in front teeth areas.

Before restoration of front teeth with implant, we should be sure which treatment is effective and all aspects should be examined. Otherwise we will fail in aesthetic restoration since inappropriate treatment leads gums dwindle and black, and bad triangles develop which are unpleasant. After implant insertion, connective tissue for aesthetic restoration of front teeth can be used to get desirable results. 

The objective of front teeth prosthesis is having six beautiful front teeth as well as harmony between surrounding structure of patient’s lips and face.

In complete prosthesis restoration of teeth, restoration can be done in one jaw arch with natural teeth and simultaneously in another with implant. In this case, flexibility of periodontal fibers and ligaments around the teeth conflict with hardness of opposite implants which result putting a lot of force to the teeth.
