Fixed prosthetic replacement
Fixed tooth replacements is anchored to the supporting elements with cement, and cannot be removed from the patient’s mouth. There are several types of fixed prosthesis: crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays…
Since these are the perfect replica of natural teeth, they should be given priority, whenever possible. Crowns and bridges may be the classic metal-ceramic or so called metal-free. Thanks to modern CAD/CAM technology in dentistry, metal-free are equally resistant as metal- ceramic ones and can be attached to lateral and front tooth region.
Today, industrially fabricated sintered blocks of divergent density and transparency are available for different regions and ranges depending on the indications. Using a patient’s digital teeth model based on his/her impression the prospective replacements (crowns or bridges) are carved out of these solid blocks with the help of computer-aided machines. Hence, the ceramic layer is placed on the given construction.
