Lost smile: restore beauty

People often order prosthetics of the front teeth not only to eliminate existing defects, but also simply to make their smile more beautiful. On average, half of the patients who come to dentists for this service want, first of all, to eliminate cosmetic defects (ugly shape, the presence of chips, darkening of the enamel). Modern dentistry allows you to successfully solve all these problems, although it requires the participation of a highly qualified dentist, as well as the availability of certain finances.

Caries-destroyed small workers are usually restored with ceramic or metal-ceramic crowns. The relatively low cost of metal-ceramic crowns makes them one of the most popular options. In fact, this is ceramics deposited on a frame made of titanium, nickel-chromium alloy, cobalt-chromium alloy or precious metals. (It is worth noting that nickel is a known allergen, and in a number of developed countries has not been used in the manufacture of crowns for a long time. It is preferable to take titanium or cobalt-chromium alloy instead.) In general, metal-ceramic crowns are cheap, but not every aesthete will like it. The need to hide the metal frame forces manufacturers to make the ceramic layer denser, so the crown stands out in the general row, no matter how carefully the color is chosen.

What to choose?

The ideal option in terms of aesthetics is metal-free ceramics. Crowns made from it partially transmit light, so outwardly such prostheses are practically indistinguishable from natural “brothers” – even a professional dentist cannot always notice the difference right off the bat. Very good crowns on zirconium oxide – strong and biologically compatible with human tissues. The only serious drawback is the price, but for people who have enough money and do not save on their health, this is the best choice.

If the damage is not too serious, veneers can be a good way out. This is the name of thin ceramic plates used to correct cosmetic defects (chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, uneven edges). Also, the installation of veneers helps to improve the appearance of seals that have darkened over time and eliminates the need for bleaching.

In the absence of one or more teeth in front, clasp prostheses on microattachments or telescopic crowns can be used. As a non-removable option – implantation of teeth with ceramic crowns on zirconium oxide. They not only have a very natural look, but also adequately withstand the chewing load.
