A beautiful, healthy smile is a winning feature. It has a positive effect on people's self-esteem and their enjoyment of life. Aesthetically beautiful teeth are often what first opens the doors for social contacts. A smile signifies self-assurance and a sense of wellbeing. For many people today a smile is widely associated with expectations of a high quality of life. Perfect teeth and a winning smile stand for physical health, social skills and professional success, all key attributes in our modern society.
Full ceramic restorations are the best way to meet the most exacting demands on aesthetics and biocompatibility. In terms of appearance and mechanical properties, ceramic materials can provide an almost perfect imitation of natural tooth structure.
With full ceramic restorations in the front teeth region, the otherwise typical problem of "dark crown margins " can be avoided. Nowadays, it is also possible to make small bridges in full ceramics. Here, the required degree of mechanical stability is ensured by zirconium oxide structures milled using CAD/CAM technology. However, for larger, more complex bridge structures, whether anchored on natural teeth or on implants, metal ceramics are still superior.
