Metalloceramic crowns are modern prosthetics, which enjoy huge popularity in dentistry. They consist of a base, cast from different metals (gold, titanium, alloys), ensuring the crowns’ strength. The upper part is made of ceramic of different shades, which allows the crowns to perfectly combine with the natural color of the patient’s teeth.

Application of metal-ceramic crowns:

  • Restoration of single teeth:

The perfect solution for damaged one tooth.

  • Manufacture of teeth bridges:

They are used to create teeth bridges, restoring whole rows of teeth.

  • Removable and permanent prosthetics:

They can be used in both removable and permanent prosthetics.

  • For side teeth with maximum grinding load:

They provide a reliable grinding function even for side teeth.
