What are Lava Crowns & Bridges?
Lava crowns and bridges are used to restore damaged teeth. These are long-lasting tooth overlays that are placed over your teeth to enhance their function and appearance. They can be dyed before being placed on your teeth. This way they match all your other teeth. You can also have translucent lava crowns. Your natural tooth color shines through.
Lava restorations offer excellent long-term stability with no allergenic potential. Lava restoration demonstrates exceptional marginal fit, lifelike translucency, and long-term durability.
Lava teeth do not require cement. This means your natural tooth does not get damaged in the process.
Lava zirconia material can be used for front and back dental crowns, wing-type bridges, cantilever, inlays, onlays, overlays, and implant copings.
What Are Lava Crowns Made of?
Lava crowns and bridges are made of Lava zirconia. This porcelain material gives Lava crowns their natural look, without compromising on strength. Zirconia is durable and translucent. The color of your own teeth shines through for a natural look, creating a great alternative for those concerned about how metal crowns will affect their smile.
Lava zirconia does not stain, chip, or break and has a low rate of heat transfer, considerably reducing any risk of tissue irritation. In addition to unmatched aesthetic results, Lava zirconia is insusceptible to allergic reactions and known to reduce sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures, which can significantly increase your quality of life.
Who Can Get Lava Crowns and Bridges?
Teeth are naturally prone to wear and tear. If you have periodontitis or experienced an injury, your teeth are likely to decay. Lava dental crowns can restore your teeth to look better than ever. A Lava crown can prevent a weak tooth from getting further damage or restore a broken tooth. Lava crowns can be highly beneficial if you have any of the following dental problems:
- Stained or discolored teeth;
- Teeth treated with root canal;
- Uneven teeth;
- Fractured or chipped teeth.
To restore or strengthen your compromised teeth with highly fracture-resistant and life-like translucent lava crowns or bridges, book an evaluation with one of our expertly trained specialists in Brooklyn, NY.
How Long Do Lava Crowns and Bridges Last For?
Lava crowns and bridges last for an average of 15 years. If you take good care of them, your lava crowns can last up to 30 years. The benefit of lava zirconia material is that they have outstanding mechanical properties. The translucent tooth-like material is strong and crack resistant.
While providing you the most aesthetic and strong teeth available in cosmetic dentistry, Lava crowns and bridges do not damage your natural teeth. Only a small amount of your tooth will be trimmed to accommodate the thickness of the crown. Most of your natural tooth structure is preserved. Because Lava zirconia is highly durable even on the microstructural level, it makes lava crown and bridge maintenance significantly easier and helps predict and establish preservation plans.
