Fixed prostheses are engrained with cement on a brushed tooth and cannot be removed by the patient. We create a crown if the tooth has been dramatically damaged and hinders the efficacy of conservative treatments (filling, in-lay), and in reconditioning original functions and aesthetics. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth when sufficient "anchor" teeth are available on each side of the gap.
Most of the fixed prostheses have a metal frame, which can be made of precious metal (e.g. gold), non-precious metal alloy or titanium. The aesthetic porcelain will cover the metal frame. This porcelain is uttered in more tones and it harmonizes with the original colour of the teeth. The full-metal crown can be used only in the grinders' area where it is not exposed.
In case of exposed teeth our aim is to reach the best aesthetic result and it can be achieved with metal-free prostheses. On the grounds of buildup these crowns can be all-porcelain (jacket crowns), or the more technologically advanced Procera crowns. The frame of Procera crowns is zirconia or aluminum oxide with the same colour like the porcelain. After the abrasion of the tooth the dentist takes an imprint, scans it and sends the information to Sweden. On the grounds of gained parameters a computer controlled precision tool creates the frame of the prosthesis. The technician in Hungary creates the superstructure from this frame. This procedure enables perfect aesthetic effect and a high level of exactitude.
If the damage of the tooth hinders the use of crowns, but the radix is intact then the missing part of the tooth must be supplemented with a cog. The cog is made of metal; it supplements the tooth and enables the use of a crown.
Telescopic crowns increase the efficacy of fixation and we use them to fix removable prostheses. The preconditions of their creation are the adequate number and statement of teeth. Telescopic crowns have two parts; the primary crown is fixed on brushed teeth with cement and the secondary crown is situated in the removable denture and is the accurate negative duplication of the primary part. Primary and secondary parts interlock like key and lock and the efficacy of fixation is guaranteed by joint crown-walls.
Temporary prosthesis is used until the permanent is inserted. A dentist or a technician can make it and its substance is plastic. The temporary prosthesis’ main function is the protection of brushed teeth.
