4 - Types of Prosthetic Teeth

There are different types of prostheses that may be attached to teeth implants, such as single teeth, bridges, and fixed dentures. Below are some materials, which are commonly used in the manufacture of prosthetic teeth:

 - Acrylic: Prostheses made from acrylic resins are usually the best option for patients, who want an aesthetic-looking restoration. Acrylic crowns are flexible, and easily blend with the colour of a person's natural teeth and gums. They are usually more economical than other types of prosthetic teeth. However, acrylic is not as durable as other materials, and may break under chewing pressure, if not cared for properly.
- Metal: A number of metals and alloys may be used in the manufacture of prosthetic crowns, such as gold, chromium, cobalt, nickel and titanium. In some cases, a patient may display sensitivity to metals like chromium and cobalt, for which crowns made of other materials may be advised.
- Porcelain: This was one of the earliest materials used for manufacturing artificial teeth. Though they are more sturdy than acrylic, they are not stronger than metal. Crowns made from ceramic generally cost less than other materials, and are preferred by dental implantologists for a majority of cases.
- Hybrid: Hybrid crowns are a combination of metal interiors, with either acrylic or porcelain exteriors. They are stronger than acrylic or porcelain teeth, but generally cost more.

Prosthetic teeth offer patients a strong and aesthetically pleasing replacement, which can generally withstand the same chewing pressures as regular teeth. After dental implant treatment is completed, patients will be able to enjoy the convenience of eating, speaking and smiling comfortably, once again.
