It is a prosthetic reconstitution layed in the tooth.
It is sealed with a cement.
It was previously made of gold.
We have newer materials as composite resins, ceramo-metallic, whole ceramic, and
also a better aesthetic result.
The main quality is the tooth tissue saved.
The defaults are eventual unsealing and resumption of toothdecay.
In that case there is both lay in and lay on the tooth.
The prosthetic crown avoids dental fracture while the tooth is surrounded by axial inner
surfaces of the prosthetic crown in the same way than the metallic surrounded circle in
a barrel that keeps together the staves.
The part over the tooth is also metallic and is used to avoid alimentation infiltrations
synonimous of toothdecay and also to resist at mastication forces.
This is the covering crown.
By extension prosthetic elements that replace the whole natural dental crown are called
crowns while those are inlay onlay with radicular post
(it may be one prosthetic piece or two prosthetic pieces).
It is a prosthetic whole containing many crowns casted together, aesthetic or not, and
replacing one or more absent tooth on the same dental arch.
In this way we can make complete bridges concerning the whole dental arch.
Those are unfixed prosthesis that must be take off and washed after every meal.
Those prosthesis may be partial or complete, made of resin or with a metallic cast
part, with false teeth made of resin or ceramic.
prosthesis over implants
Implants are manufactured metallic pieces screwed in bored bone cavity with calibrated
This is a surgical intervention and requires a general anaesthesia.
Over an implant we have to make casual prosthesis.
Those are bridge, crown or intracoronal overdenture attachment used to retain
