Cercon metal-free ceramic crown

In the case of incisor teeth, it is usual to see that although the crown is esthetic, the replacement still does not give the impression of a natural tooth. The main reason is that the crown is supported by a metal substructure which means that it is a lot less translucent than natural teeth. This problem can be solved by using a metal-free ceramic crown. A metal-free translucent ceramic crown, Cercon, remains unnoticeable even for an expert eye from 5-10 cm. Cercon has been developed by Swiss researchers. When preparing Cercon, the lab technicians use CAD/CAM tecnology to design the anatomical features, size and shape of a tooth restoration on a computer. The CAD/CAM computer screen displays a 3-D image of your teeth and gums, allowing your dentist to use a cursor to draw the precise design of he tooth restoration. The CAD/CAM machine fabricates the restoration through a milling chamber that crafts the tooth-like ceramic material into a precise replica of the drawing. The Cercon system provides high stability. It is anti-allergic, translucent, biocompatible and has low thermal conductivity. Indications: single crowns for front teeth and molars, maximum two pontics by bridges, all-porcelain crownsd tissue-friendly solution
