Metal-ceramic prosthetics is a reasonable compromise between aesthetics, price and quality. The tried and tested method, with proper preparation, guarantees good aesthetics and the necessary strength for a full-fledged function.
The ceramic-metal crown consists of ceramics, which are lined with a metal frame. Such a frame has a thickness of 0.3 – 0.5 mm. As a rule, it is made of cobalt-chromium or nickel-chromium alloys specially developed for dentistry. The metal frame is covered with ceramic mass on top. The frame lining is in the form of a layered manual application of ceramic layers. After applying each layer, the crown is fired in a special furnace at a temperature of 800 – 950 degrees. It is with this technology of applying ceramic layers and firing temperature that a strong chemical bond between ceramic and metal is achieved.
The cost of work is calculated individually at the initial consultation and depends on the number of crowns.
