WHAT IS A PORCELAIN CROWN?

Cosmetic porcelain crowns are used for severe cases of chipped / broken / eroded / tilted / discolored teeth in order to provide better protection but also maintain the natural beauty of the front teeth area. For porcelain crowns more tooth enamel will need to be removed compared to for veneers. For extreme cases of tilted / broken / eroded teeth, root canal treatment may be required prior to placement of cosmetic porcelain crowns.

WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE

A bridge — a device used to replace missing teeth — attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges), or they can be removable. Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the abutment teeth or by bonding the artificial teeth directly to the abutment teeth. Removable bridges are attached to the teeth with metal clasps or by precision attachments.

WHICH MATERIAL IS USED TO PRODUCE A PORCELAIN CROWN / BRIDGE IN VIETNAM?

Non-metal Nacera/Emax/Zirconia crown on implant (10 years warranty at our center) are used up to 90% at Dr Hung & Associates Dental Center.

We use the latest high quality porcelain materials imported from the best companies from Europe and the United State. These materials are 100% biocompatible, adhere well to your tooth, and are lost lasting (generally > 20 years). There will be no adverse / allergic reactions from your body and no side effects.

This is the restoration that has the best natural beauty like real teeth, which is composed of a porcelain frame inside and covered outside by many layers of cosmetic porcelain with nano technology. It is also designed and manufactured by CAD/CAM technology at our Lab in-house to ensure the highest level of accuracy. Furthermore, this restoration will avoid the state of ‘dark collar’ after years of use.

Nacera (DOCERAM Medical -Germany):

This is the newest material on the market, made of highly translucent Zirconium oxide that guarantees natural-looking restorations. This material gives off a pearly white color, hence Nacera is also known as Nacera Pearl. This material is very durable (1400 MPa, as compared to natural tooth strength of 250 MPa), allowing you to eat any type of food without worrying about chipping or cracking.  The combination of extreme flexural strength and high translucency is made for maximum aesthetics.

Emax (Ivoclar Vivadent – Liechtenstein):

Emax offers the fit, form, and function expected from pressed ceramics. In addition, it offers improved flexural strength (400 MPa). With optimized esthetic properties creating all-ceramic restorations that offer true-to-nature results, Emax is usually used for front teeth. This material is not suitable for molars or bridges.

HT Smile (HC Starck – Germany):

HT Smile Zirconia has 16 different shades, providing customers with tailored solutions that fit their every need. HT Smile also has a nice translucent white color, providing customers with a very natural look. HT Smile is durable (1200 MPa), allowing you to eat any type of food without worrying about chipping or cracking.

Ceramill (Amann Girbach – Germany):

Ceramill is a high-translucent Zirconia with seamless shade and translucency gradient, perfect for aesthetical restorations. Besides being durable (1200 MPa), Ceramill also has high bending strength, providing you with comfortable chewing functionality.

Full Zirconia (HC Starck – Germany)

Full Zirconia (HC Starck – Germany) is a type of porcelain crown made only from Zirconia material – a very hard type of non-metal (1000 MPa). Given how Zirconia does not have the natural teeth look, it is typically used for back teeth (especially for crowns on implants) to achieve the best chewing ability.

We also make precious metal crowns (Gold, Platin, Paalladium), which are crowns with frames made of highly valuable metals such as gold, platin, and palladium, and covered with many layers of porcelain for good biological impact, hardness, and aesthetic factors. The only disadvantage of this solution is its high cost.

Additionally, we also use Titanium-fused porcelain crowns. They are composed of a Titanium frame inside and covered by many layers of cosmetic porcelain outside. Titanium-fused porcelain crowns are durable, but they don’t have the natural white color that porcelain crowns have.
