Crowns and bridges
At Ferney Voltaire Dental Center, we care for your smile. If your tooth is seriously damaged but remains firmly rooted, your dentist may be able to restore it by fitting a cosmetic dental crown. If your tooth cannot be saved and it is not possible either to fit a dental implant in the vacant space, the latter can also be filled using a dental bridge. These bridges can be made of various materials and our dentists obtain particularly aesthetic results by using metal-free materials such as Zirconia or Emax.
The philosophy of our dental centre is to concentrate on the functional aspect of the teeth, while at the same time taking into consideration the aesthetic aspect of dental restoration which our dentists carry out in order to give you the most natural, beautiful smile possible.
Crowns and bridges
If your tooth is badly damaged but remains firmly rooted, your dentist can restore it by placing a cosmetic dental crown that will allow you to regain your chewing strength. If, on the other hand, your tooth cannot be recovered and it is also not possible to place a dental implant in the space left empty, the latter can also be filled with a dental bridge or bridge.
These crowns and bridges can be made of different materials. You can opt for a metal ceramic crown, however our dentists obtain particularly aesthetic results by using metal-free materials such as Zirconia or Emax.
We will gladly explain the difference between the different types of materials, just make an appointment.
The crowns we offer at Center Dentaire Ferney Voltaire are as follows:
CCM or Ceramic-metallic crown
The ceramic-metal crown is a widely used crown, it is a layer of metal to which is added a layer of ceramic. It is a very resistant crown thanks to its underlying metallic structure and aesthetic thanks to the ceramic layer that covers it.
His advantages :
She is beautiful is durable,
It has been around for decades, we know it is very efficient,
Its price remains attractive.
Over time, as the gums tend to retract, the metal base of the crown will be inexorably visible (without functional questioning), so aesthetically, this will be a disadvantage.
Zirconium is a material that combines the strength of metal with the aesthetics of all-ceramic crowns. The zirconia ceramic crown is an excellent solution for restorations of posterior and anterior teeth. It allows to obtain natural, aesthetic nuances as well as an optimal shine. The highly translucent zirconia crown has recently become a popular choice.
Advantages of the all-zirconia crown:
It does not contain metal,
It is beautiful and durable.
Its price, slightly higher than the ceramic-metal crown.
The crown in E-max is a crown developed by the company Ivolar Vivadent and manufactured in lithium glass ceramic. It is preferred to zirconia crowns because it is more resistant, more durable, more aesthetic with a translucent color and which allows light to pass through. This is the crown that looks exactly like natural teeth. The only downside to E-MAX crowns is their cost. E-MAX crowns are the best crowns in modern dentistry.
Advantages of the E-max crown:
To be confused with natural teeth, therefore high aesthetic content,
Durable and very strong,
Suitable for both anterior and posterior teeth.
Their cost slightly higher than the Zirconia crown.
The philosophy of our dental practice is to focus on the functional aspect of the teeth, while also taking into consideration the aesthetic aspect of the dental restoration that our dentists perform in order to give you the most natural and aesthetic smile possible.
