Metal-ceramic crowns serve for several decades. These are reliable constructions that provide the aesthetic appearance of the teeth. Plastic filled metal is budget friendly. Strength and aesthetics are combined in one material. Thanks to the metal frame, the structure is solid. Ceramic coating does not differ from natural teeth in appearance.
Manufacturing process of structures:
- the cast is used to cast the metal base (for this, a chromium-nickel alloy is used, in rare cases precious materials);
- a ceramic mass is applied over the metal base (the cutting edge is transparent and does not differ from the natural one);
- glaze coating is the final stage (with the help of glaze, the surface has a shine and performs protective functions).
The price of cermets per tooth is determined for each patient at the first appointment with the dentist.
