Fixed Fixed Partial Denture is a dental prosthesis where the artificial tooth or teeth is supported rigidly on either side by one or more abutment teeth. It is indicated where missing teeth are bound by abutment teeth which arecapable of supporting the functional load of the missing teeth.
Complete Denture is a dental prosthesis that replaces all of the natural dentition and associated structures of the maxilla or mandible. It is entirely supported by tissues – mucous membrane, connective tissues and underlying bone.
Shade is one of the vital factors in the fabrication of esthetic dental crowns. The teeth shade can be identified with the Munsell system of color identification: Hue refers to the dimension of color that distinguishes one family of color from another. Value describes the dimension of color that denotes relative blackness or whiteness. Chroma is the dimension that descirbes the saturation, intensity or strength of a hue.
The photo above shows Porcelain fused to metal Dental Crowns on 4 incisors. The patient is very satisfied with the restoration.
All Ceramics Endocrown is a restoration that reproduces the entire surface anatomy of the clinical crown and other lost structure of an endodontically treated tooth. It is fabricated by CAD CAM machine from a “porcelain” block. It is esthetically pleasing and very biocompatible.
Porcelain Fused to Metal Dental Crown is a restoration that reproduces the entire surface anatomy of the clinical crown of a tooth. It is fabricated with porcelain fused to metal casting. Its abutment can be a prepared tooth or an implant abutment. The prepared tooth abutment may be sound, or it may be partially rebuilt by a cast metal core or a cast core and post, cemented to the remaining tooth structure, or by composite resin or by amalgam.
