It is advisable to make a crown in case of a bigger damage. The tooth is being prepared and an impression is taken and the definite crown is made in one week’s time. A temporary crown is also be made if needed. By making the crown keeping the vitality of the tooth is very important. Nevertheless, root canal treatment is necessary in some cases. We provide metal-free crowns – like gradia or zirconia –and metal-based crowns covered with ceramic. The metal can be precious – gold or titanium – or non-precious metal.
Bridgeworks / Dental Bridges
A bridge is needed to replace missing teeth. The neighbouring teeth or roots will be prepared and used as pillars.The most important advantage is its size: it is as big as the original teeth and it is easier to get used to a fixed restoration.
Inlay / Onlay
Inlay – which is a type of filling – is made to make the missing part of the tooth up by restoring its anatomical form, chewing-ability and function. For this treatment you must visit your dentist twice. The tooth is being prepared and an impression is taken on the first occasion.
It takes about five days for the technician to make the inlay. For this transition period you are getting a temporary filling. A largely damaged tooth can be saved with the help of this treatment without preparing the whole tooth for a crown. It is reasonable to change your amalgam fillings or to supply the broken or destroyed margins this way.
We offer you inlays in several materials:
Gradia is a type of synthetic resin strengthened with glass fiber. It is aesthetic and available in the colours of your own teeth. This material is similar to the tooth in many ways. It does not abrade the surface of the opposite tooth, it is not stiff and does not break. Its life expectancy is about 8-12 years.
Ceramic is really beautiful and aesthetic, but its physical properties are more unfavorable. It is stiffer and much more breakable than gradia. It has to be thick to avoid breaking, therefor a bigger part of the tooth has to be polished. Its life expectancy is about 8-12 years, as well.
We offer Gold inlays for those, who are looking for a long-term solution, as its life expectancy is about 15-20 years. Its advantage is the complete marginal close, the correct chewing-stability and that it does not cause allergy.
Dental restorations – also called dental prosthesises – are the fixed or removable replacements of missing teeth. Losing teeth has an effect on the appearance, behaviour, nourishment and self-confidence.The most important disadvantage of having less teeth is the decrease of the chewing-ability.
A person, who does not have enough teeth can not chew food properly and this may cause disorders of the digestive system. The primary function of dental prosthesises is to restore chewing-ability and to eliminate speech defects. Nevertheless, its aesthetic value is also very important.
Even one missing tooth can reduce the facility of mastication and cause disharmony. It has an other detriment in addition. The neighboring teeth will start to slant and move from their original position. So the opposite tooth in the other jawbone will rise and get loose. This can be avoided by replacing the missing tooth in time.
Combined restorations consist of a fixed and a removable part that are joined with a clasp not seen from outside.
Usually they are made of the combination of plastic and metal. If the missing teeth can not be replaced only by a fixed bridgework, a removable prosthesis is also necessary.
The remaining teeth are covered with a crown for their own protection and to assure the perfect connection with the removable part.
This completion can be placed on the surface by the lips only by front teeth. Most of the times it is made because of aesthetic reasons, like a dark tooth-colour, unfavorable form or big space between teeth.
It can be made by the dentist or the technician on the grounds of an impression. It is fixed with a special cement and can be made of gradia or ceramic.
