Metal 3D Printed crown/Bridge.
Metals have been used to fabricate crowns and bridges in cases where less tooth material is present. With metal crowns, less tooth structure needs to be removed during tooth preparation, it also has the added benefit of causing minimum tooth wear to opposing teeth. These metal crowns and bridges provide greater strength and can withstand strong biting and chewing forces. They rarely break or chip off and have excellent durability. 3D printing technology is used in the fabrication to deliver high accuracy, precision, and consistency. This provides a good fit and great marginal adaptation. Metal crown or bridges can be made of:
Cast Metal crown/Bridge
Cast Metal crown/Bridge can be an excellent treatment option for cases that do not need aesthetics, but the best protection is necessary for the tooth/teeth. Modern dental alloys (cast metal) have been engineered to provide excellent properties, meet all kinds of patient requirements, and provide good durability. They are the right choice when you want to restore an out-of-sight molar in patients as a more cost effective option.
Full Casted Gold Crown/inlay
Gold is a superior dental alloy that has been in use for a diverse variety of indirect restorations, from porcelain fused to gold crowns/bridges, full-cast gold crowns/bridges, to removable partial dentures or inlays. Gold being a noble, precious metal, is highly biocompatible and is extremely unlikely to break or fail as it has high strength and wear- resistance. This provides increased durability and longevity. Full cast Gold restorations are considered an excellent alternative for patients who have severely damaged posterior teeth. These are rarely provided in the anterior esthetic area and are preferred for severely damaged posterior teeth.
A cast post and core is a prosthodontic treatment solution for patients who do not have sufficient sound tooth structure for a conventional preformed post. The dental lab creates a customized post to provide a better fit and retention in such cases. The clinician must prepare the root canal and take an impression for us to then fabricate the cast post. The cast post retains the core restoration, which retains the crown. They are most commonly used for anterior teeth since posterior teeth are much smaller and less retentive. The cast post must reach two-thirds of the total root canal length for sufficient retention.
Partial Chrome Cobalt Design
Removable partials especially cast metal partials require a lot of skill to fabricate. Cobalt chrome partials consist of a superior quality metal framework made of cobalt-chromium alloy, high in strength, adjustable, and long-lasting. The other component is processed acrylic. They are combined with great precision to create long-term clinical success, high shine and tarnish resistance, fantastic flexibility, and durability.
The telescopic crowns are crowns that are placed on copings. They consist of a double crown system. They are used in removable partial or complete dentures to connect the dentures to the remaining natural teeth. They are generally effective in people with periodontally weakened teeth. In such cases, cross- arch stabilization is provided by telescopic crowns.
