They are prostheses that are fixed to the existing teeth
or implants in the mouth by the doctor and cannot be put on and removed by the
patient. Fixed prostheses include crown and fixed bridge applications. They can
be produced from different materials such as plastic (temporary), Porcelain
Fused to Metal, Zirconia Crowns, Empress or E-Max. While deciding which
material to use, the choice is made by considering parameters such as the
patient's aesthetic expectation, the area where the mouth will be restored, how
long the toothlessness will be removed, and the economic situation of the
person who will have it done.

(metal structure) and aesthetics (porcelain coat that covers the cap
Crowns- Zirconium is a a type of white
material that combines the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain
crowns. They are strong and long lasting.
Crowns( Empress or E-Max)- These are
special type of crowns made from lithium disilicate material. Also, these
crowns are made from a single block of this material which makes it a high
strength crown. Lithium disilicate is known for its superior strength and
appealing aesthetics as a restorative crown material. E-max crowns are slightly
translucent and hence come closest to matching your teeth colour. This property
has made it a popular choice for crown restoration especially in front teeth.
