How we make crowns and bridges look like real teeth
To look completely natural and totally convincing every crown or bridge needs to be as individual as you are. At HQ dental everything is custom made in house by our skilled technicians and this direct line of communication always guarantees the best possible results.
To survive the enormous forces of biting and chewing all crowns and bridges need to be incredibly strong so they need to have have a high strength core material-conventional crowns have a cast metal core but the very latest hi tech crowns and bridges have a CAD CAM designed zirconia core….these fit more accurately and because they are tooth coloured all the way through they look more natural too.
On top of the core material we build the crown up in different layers of porcelain-this means that we can incorporate different colours and other internal characterisation. These can include areas of opacity or translucency and even fluorescence. This porcelain is baked onto the core material.
Finally we finish the crown or bridge by ‘glazing’ it with a layer of translucent porcelain. At this point we can also add surface staining for an even better result -when a complex colour match is required we sometimes do this with our patient present for the best result possible.
