• Helps preserve the natural function and position of the teeth
• Maintains the shape of your face
• Restore your beautiful smile
• Covers discolored and irregularities in teeth in improving cosmetic appearance
• Protects severely damaged tooth or tooth weakened by decay, fracture, large fillings or root canal therapy from fracturing. Teeth with large fillings tend to "flex more" forcing the tooth apart possibly causing stress fractures
• Holds together cracked or weaken teeth and seal the tooth from decay
• Helps preserve the natural function and position of the teeth
• Restores tooth with large decay, cavities or filings
• Supports the replacement teeth in a bridge
• Restores and maintains natural bite
• Covers a dental implant
Dental crowns are made of metal, ceramic, porcelain fused to metal or composite/polymer. The type of crown utilized during your dental crown procedure will depend on your unique needs and goals, as well as the recommendation of your dentist.
All ceramic crown is made of porcelain or dental ceramic materials. They create an extremely natural-looking appearance and are typically used on front teeth. The tooth-colored ceramic material is translucent, like the enamel of your natural teeth, and size and shade can be carefully matched to complement the rest of your smile. All porcelain crowns will make your new tooth both strong and beautiful. This tissue friendly porcelain crown recreates the strength and natural beauty of your tooth. Due to the strength in the modified core material, all porcelain crowns are suitable for prosthetic reconstructions anywhere in the mouth. In addition, more and more patients are asking for constructions made of materials not containing metal or other alloys. All porcelain crowns are made of a biocompatible material which minimizes the risk of allergic reactions.
Porcelain fused to metal dental crown is a hybrid between all-metal crown and all porcelain crown. When being manufactured, our dental technicians will make a shell of metal (substructure) that is custom fitted for your affected tooth. A veneer of porcelain is then fused over this metal, giving the crown a white tooth-like appearance. Porcelain fused to metal crowns has the advantages of having a nearly natural appearance from the porcelain, and the strength and stability provided by the underlying metal. Porcelain fused to metal dental crowns is stronger than the all porcelain crowns but are more prone to fracture than an all-metal dental crown.Metal Crown
Porcelain veneered crown or Porcelain fused to metal crown is a hybrid between all-metal crown and all porcelain crown. When being manufactured, our dental technicians will make a shell of metal (substructure) that is custom fitted for your affected tooth. A veneer of porcelain is then fused over this metal, giving the crown a white tooth-like appearance. Porcelain fused to metal crowns has the advantages of having a nearly natural appearance from the porcelain, and the strength and stability provided by the underlying metal.
Degudent® LS is a high noble alloy with 87% gold, 5.8% palladium and 7% silver. Degudent® LS is a micro-fine, extra-hard alloy suitable for single crowns and long span bridgework, milled restorations in conjunction with precision attachments, partial dentures and implant superstructures. Degudent® LS displays a golden color and can be veneered with Duceragold® Porcelain. Our premium crown utilizes this low fusing porcelain in a four-layer build up. Both restorations provide outstanding results that will rival all-ceramic crowns; yet they can be cemented in a conventional manner.
This is an advanced metallurgical technology for producing high gold content, yellow metal substructures. This 22-karat gold substructure offers the strength and stability of a platinum-palladium alloy. So strong in fact, that this material is equally suitable for both single crowns and bridges.
It has a unique metallurgical structure called a "dual phase interpenetrating composite." When combined with an electrolyte (saliva), a very small electrical charge results. Researchers are calling this a "bacteriostatic effect," and it is reported to repel plaque and bacteria.
Procera All Ceram combines excellent and profound strength with beautiful esthetics. The material consists of 99.5 percent pure aluminum oxide and is biocompatible, thereby ensuring excellent long-term esthetics.
Procera All Ceram is translucent giving the tooth a natural appearance. At the same time Procera All Ceram is excellent for concealing underlying surfaces, such as amalgam and root fillings. This ceram is also customized but still industrially produced, ensuring predictable results. You should try quickly in your mouth with minimal adjustments.
With the strength in the core material, Procera All Ceram can be recommended for prosthetic reconstructions anywhere in the mouth. More and more patients are asking for constructions made of material not containing metal or other alloys. Procera All Ceram is made of bio-compatible material (comparable to Titanium) which minimizes the risk of allergic reactions. No need to worry about your allergies when you use Procera All Ceram. The translucent coping offers remarkable esthetic characteristics. When combined with Procera All Ceram Porcelain the advantages are clearly demonstrated. To recreate the beauty of natural your teeth, the porcelain has been formulated to make the most of the coping’s inherent potential and efficient.
Titanium Porcelain is matched to the specific material properties of titanium. The inherent versatile properties of titanium provide an incredibly biocompatible, corrosion-resistant coping that is lightweight, hypo-allergenic, mechanically strong (Vicker's hardness of 180-250, degree 1-4) and has low thermal conductivity.
Because the pure titanium is characterized with good biological compatibility, titanium is widely applied into the area of clinical science. In dentistry, the application is mainly as implant body, pure titanium removable partial denture and titanium alloy porcelain laminates, etc.
At Bangkok Smile Dental Clinic, we use the latest 3D CAD-CAM system to mill the medical-graded titanium for use as the framework for crowns, bridges and implant works. Our results are consistently impressive convincing our clients of the quality and sustainability of the technology.
The pure Titanium is a superior dental solution for the following reasons :
