We may have a coating on our jobs for different reasons. Sometimes a broken tooth may be needed to cover for a tooth that is sometimes channel-treated. Dental bridges are also applied in cases where the implant is not preferred in order to complete the missing tooth cavities. As with many other treatments, work coatings have a certain lifetime. In this article, we will learn how to understand the time of change for the old dental coverings from Dentist Sertaç Kızılkaya, who has more than 25 years of professional experience, and how long a tooth cover or tooth bridge is to be used.

We follow with you that you have been working on dental treatments especially in recent years. In this direction, we are looking for answers to the questions that our tooth coating has become obsolete and need to be replaced. As a patient, how do we know that tooth coverings need to be replaced?


Before answering this question, I would like to focus on how to increase the life of dental coatings that I think are more important. Treatments that treat people as psychological and economical. For this reason, to prevent tooth problems and tooth extraction, as far as possible to prevent dental problems. Even if they are sometimes treated with aesthetic purposes, they need to be done within a certain logic and plan.

For our own teeth, as well as the implant we do, aesthetic dental coating, zirconium and laminate veneer applications for daily dental care is extremely important. No matter how much cleaning is done in the dentist, the patient’s own daily dental care is no substitute. Tooth care, toothpaste, interface brushes and mouthwash are used to create a whole dental care.



Biodent Dental Coating Life

Dental coverings which cover the teeth like a sheath can be produced from different materials. Among these, the most used material in the past was biodent material on metal. This plastic-based material was a short-lived dental coating product which had to be replaced over time with both color changes and abrasions. It is no longer used in new dental closures. In addition to the wear and discoloration, there is a loss of food residues in the under body part of the tooth bridges. The life of these coatings does not exceed 3 to 5 years, especially for patients with tooth tightening and squeaking problems. The loss of vertical dimension along with wear causes damage to the jaw joint called the TMJ joint.

The average life for Biodent tooth coating can be three to five years. The biggest problem is the wear problem. The discoloration of the material also creates a change for the front tooth coverings.

Porcelain Tooth Coating Life

Instead of metal-based coatings applied with biodent materials, porcelain coatings were started to be applied over time. With the porcelain tooth coating, the old section of the crown and the bridge has been removed from the disadvantages of the part. However, the negative features of porcelain in time has led to the search for new materials. What were the disadvantages of porcelain?

Firstly, they were easily deformed by the metal and porcelain joints which were used as support when they first came out. This situation, called porcelain throw, was a very important problem. The problem of attachment to the aesthetic white porcelain layer on the substructure material caused breakage in hard food or in case of tooth tightening and separation of metal and porcelain. This problem was soon resolved with better binding chemicals and opaque materials.

Porcelain cast is no problem when quality material is used. However, tooth decay and gum problems continued under the porcelain tooth coating. This problem was the problem of application of the material. The metal was oxidized after the casting and during the casting the expansion was losing its harmony with the shrinkage. For the purpose of adaptation, it was ensured that the model could be eroded by metal etching. This should be between the teeth and the metalmeans more space than a. The space required to be kept equal and small with the purpose of bonding was increased by abrasions. This situation creates a favorable environment for the dissolution of the cement between the teeth and metal in time and the tooth decay, and prepares the ground for dental caries under dental coatings.

Even today, porcelain tooth finishes are still in use. Because they have aesthetic disadvantages. They also have biological disadvantages. A light-permeable material must be used to create a natural tooth color. Porcelain is extremely aesthetic and light-permeable even if the metal under the color tone because of the natural tone.

It is possible to use a good porcelain tooth coating for 10 to 20 years. With regular dentist checks. This period is reasonable with the correct daily dental care. However, changes in the color of the gums for the allergy or anterior teeth aesthetic region create a significant problem. The dark color of the metal color in the gums is a valid reason for changing the coating. Mr. Kizilkaya, we would appreciate if you give us information about this. Now your patient is here. At any other time we would like to know about this allergy. Is it possible?

 I would also like to inform you about allergy to porcelain metal. In our next meeting, we will give you an allergy to porcelain metal.


You can use your own teeth when the tooth finishes are done well. But there will be a certain material life. When our teeth are pulled out, the root surface is exposed and we continue to use it. Gum withdrawal for natural teeth, which is a one-piece structure, is not a big problem. It should not be forgotten that gum withdrawal is a natural biological process in every human being. On the other hand, gingival recessions due to gum disease should be evaluated differently.

The better the tooth coating is applied, the more difficult it can be in the gum. These draws are not a problem for the well-made tooth finish 10 years . However, it may be necessary for the dentist to replace the old tooth coating for longer periods of time.
