Materials and Procedures for Crowns, Bridges and Veneers

Dental crown illustrationAt Worldwide Beauty and Dental Hospital, the materials used to create your custom-made crown, bridge or veneers are of the highest quality. Our on-site laboratory is staffed by fully qualified professionals with years of experience in the field.

Your dental restoration can be made from:

  • Non-metal e.max®, zirconia and vita porcelain: This can can also be placed on an implant. This natural-looking beautiful option for crowns doesn’t involve a “dark collar” as the years pass.
  • Nano e.max: a pressed ceramic with superior fit, function and form that offers strength and is ideal for front teeth.
  • Non-metal lava: a type of ceramic resin that looks as natural as a regular tooth while being very hard, making it suitable for front or back teeth.
  • Non-metal full zirconia: which is a porcelain crown that is a hard non-metal. It is used for back teeth, particularly a crown placed on an implant, due to its superior chewing properties.
  • Crystal ultraporcelain: . Utilised for crowns on implants and three-unit bridges, it is the strongest of ceramic and ceramic hybrids and can be completed within a day.
  • Precious metal: Crowns created from gold, palladium, plating and more are covered with layers of porcelain for a pleasing aesthetic with biocompatibility and strength.
  • Titanium:  If you require a crown, bridge or crown on implant, this restoration is natural-looking, made from a titanium frame covered by layers of cosmetic porcelain.

All Restorations Created On-site

Our in-house laboratory offers CAD/CAM technology to ensure high quality and incredible accuracy that fits in seamlessly with your other teeth. All equipment is imported from the U.S., Germany or Japan with the most up-to-date techniques available. The materials used are Dentsply’s Ceramco® 3 or Noritake porcelain.

When your dentist gathered the necessary information, it’s sent to the laboratory to be digitally designed. It’s formed, then put into a furnace and sculpted, stained and glazed. The completed restoration is then returned to your dentist to be fitted in your mouth.

The Step-by-step Appointment Procedure

When you receive veneers, a crown or a bridge, 4-5 appointments are necessary, taking place over 5-7 days.

  • First appointment: Intra-oral examination, CT X-rays and taking impressions; advanced software is used so that you and your dentist can design your ideal smile.
  • Second or third appointment: The restoration is prepared, the colour selected and a temporary crown placed while the data is sent to the laboratory to create your permanent device.
  • Third or fourth appointment: Trying the restoration in your mouth and installing it.
  • Fourth or fifth appointment: A re-examination of your device and making any needed adjustments.
