Preservative, aesthetic and prosthetic solutions

Restorative dentistry is the process of repairing or replacing broken down and worn out tooth structure. This aspect of dentistry includes fillings, inlays, crowns, bridges, partial and complete removable dentures and implants. If you miss one or more natural teeth you know how much this reduces your ability to chew food. Today there are many ways to repair or replace missing tooth structure. We are able to restore proper function, even improve upon the original esthetics of your smile.

What is a composite resin (white filling)?

A composite resin is a tooth colored plastic mixture filled with glass (silicon dioxide). Composite fillings are ideal to replace old amalgam fillings.and may also be used to close gaps between front teeth.Composite fillings can be successfully placed in the back teeth as well.

How is a composite placed?

Following preparation we place the composite in layers, using a light specialized to harden each layer.When the process is finished, the dentist will shape the composite to the tooth.

What are the advantages of composites?

Esthetics are the main advantage, since dentists can blend shades to create a colour nearly identical to that of the actual tooth.Composites bond to the tooth to support the remaining tooth structure, which helps to prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from the excessive temperature changes.

What are the disadvantages?

After receiving a composite, a patient may experience minor post operative sensitivity.Should this happen, it usually dissipates within a few weeks.

What are the disadvantages?

Studies have shown that composite last 7-10 years.

In our dental office we use only composite filling material (3M ESPE)
Composite fillings are ideal to replace old amalgam fillings.

Dental inlays are used to treat tooth that had root canal therapy or bigger damage. In such cases inlays are the best solutions rather than using simple fillings. Inlays are made in a dental laboratory after an impression is taken by the dentist. Inlays can be made from gold, porcelain or Bell glass (ceramic resin).

Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, cover damaged or discoloured teeth. Its purpose is to strengthen or improve the appearance of a tooth. A crown is places for a number of reasons:

– to support a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remainingű
– to attach a bridge
– to protect weak teeth from fracturing
– to restore fractured teeth
– to cover badly shaped or discoloured teeth
– to cover a dental implant

Ideal for single crowns, bridges. Dental crowns made of porcelain fused to metal are strong enough to anchor bridges as well. As the metal shell is fully covered with porcelain the estetic appearance is good.

These type of crowns are made of porcelain and are metal free. They create an extremely natural looking appearance and are typically used on front teeth but do not function on bridges.

This innovative system combines the durability of porcelain fused to metal bridges with the aesthetic appearance of metal–free crowns. This system is based on the material zirconium-oxide (cercon).

What is zirconium oxide?

Nowadays we can hear more and more about the probable allergic effects of metals applied in dentistry. Therefore the use of a material having the same good mechanical properties as metals but doesn’t affect allergic reactions in human organism became necessary. While zirconium oxide does not have any allergic effects described in scientific publications, this material can be told as “biocompatible”. It appertains to his good qualities that it conducts heat very badly, so the patients do not complain about cold or heat sensitiveness. This material is produced with the help of the most modern CAD/CAM computer technologies. Zirconium oxide crowns and bridges are the most aesthetic solutions.

The traditional crowns have a porcelain layer burnt on a metal cap, so its light permeability is weak. The light permeability of porcelain crowns burnt on zirconium oxide look like the own natural teeth. Because there aren’t any metal caps, the dark metal frame-edge of the crown will not be visible if the gums may draw back in after years.

These type of crowns have excellent physical properties and as gold has antiseptic and antibacterial characteristics these crowns probably have the greatest potential to last the longest.

When teeth are missing and there are teeth on either side of the space a bridge can replace the missing teeth.

What is a bridge?

A bridge is a dental appliance that replaces one or more natural missing teeth, thereby bridging the space between two teeth.When teeth are missing and there are teeth on either side of the space a bridge can replace the missing teeth.

Who should get a bridge?

If you miss any teeth and are committed to maintaining good oral hygiene practices, you may be a good candidate for a bridge.A bridge is a great choice to fill a space in the mouth left by missing teeth.If left unfilled, this space can cause the surrounding teeth to go out of position and can cause the surronding teeth to go out of position and can cause teeth and gums to become more susceptible to tooth decay, and gum disease that can cause further tooth loss. Fixed bridges not only enhance the appearance of your smile,but they also improve your chewing ability and speech.They can also safeguard you appearance by preventing the collapse of your facial features that can cause premature wrinkles and age lines.

What procedures are involved?

For a traditional fixed bridge, the first appointment consists of the dentist reducing the adjacent abutment teeth that will act as anchors.Impressions are made, from which a metal framewotk, including the pontic, is created. By the second appointment, the final bridge is fitted over the teeth.The total treatment time is usually two weeks, depending on the type of bridge.

Veneers are a way to change the appearance of your teeth. Veneers are thin porcelain made coveringsshells of tooth-coloured material which are bonded to the front of the tooth. Veneers are fabricated by a dental technician in the dental laboratory from the impression provided by the dental office.Veneers are used to cover gaps or teeth that are stained, poorly shaped or crooked.Veneers may last from 3 to 12 years or longer.
