Empress WHAT IS CROWN?
It is a type of veneer used on the front teeth, especially in patients who want the closest aesthetic result to the natural tooth, as a full porcelain tooth crown, which is also called full ceramic, full porcelain, full ceramic. There is no infrastructure material in Empress dental veneers. (For example, zirconium porcelain veneers are porcelain dental veneers with a zirconium infrastructure.) Full porcelain tooth veneers are obtained by strengthening the porcelain material.
They are produced by the technique of stacking glass ceramic on porcelain, which is compressed with high pressure for the strengthening process. Empress dental veneers are preferred, especially if a natural appearance is desired in front tooth veneers. When several teeth in the front teeth need to be covered for various reasons, it is the only type of tooth coating that is most similar to your own teeth and is not understood to be a coating.
In case of missing teeth, they are not preferred as they do not have sufficient resistance as a bridge body. Although it is thought that molars will not show sufficient resistance against chewing forces, today developed empress dental materials can also be applied in the posterior teeth region.
