Press ceramics- non-metallic perfection
Nowadays up-to-date metal ceramic technologies can provide life-like replacements in ideal cases. There are, however, cases where due to the slight possibility of preparation resulting from a protruding tooth stump, or the biological conditions, the success of veneering is adversely affected.
However, in case of the most ideal case, a metal ceramic restoration cannot compete with the non-metallic technology, from the aspect of esthetics. In the latter case there is no any metal frame, which would prevent the light from penetrating the ceramics. It is the tooth stump of the patient which seems to penetrate through the replacement, adding its colour, thereby enhancing the life-like appearance of the work. It is important to mention that the bending strength, fracture resistance are relatively low, therefore the esthetic value is the primary strength of this technology. It is primarily applied on front teeth, and to prepare fillings prepared in teh dental labs. In case of discoloured tooth stumps, which are in bad condition, its application requires careful consideration.
Press ceramic pill – medication, so that esthetics should not be a head-ache
Nowadays it happens very often that patients want to have their front teeth grinded expressly for esthetic reason. They are often young people, whose pulpa dentis is less narrowed, having high expectations towards the replacement, as they have sacrificed their healthy teeth in order to have good appearance. Nothing can compete with the outcome of press ceramic procedure in the field of natural look. Shade guide of the manufacturer enhances the improved communication between the practice and the laboratory.
As dentistry is healthcare, and is in no way beauty industry, in addition to esthetics biocompatibility is also important. Press ceramics contain leucite crystals, which are potassium aluminium silicate. Instead of this lots of heavy metal-aluminium silicate are used in synthetic ceramics.
Press core can be very well formed, coloured prior to the application of the veneering material, in order to achieve the most meticulous individual appearance.
Pressing technology provides excellent fit.
