With so many options to restore damaged teeth, it is important to understand what is the appropriate treatment for each type of dental damage. In the dental armory of procedures, we have dental bondings, ceramic onlays and inlays, dental crowns, and porcelain veneers to re-establish the vast majority of the harm brought about by decay or cracks or to enhance one’s smile.
Prosthetic crowns(metal ceramic)
Prosthetic crowns are almost indistinguishable from natural teeth. They are used for severely damaged teeth, teeth root canal treatment and to replace one or several missing teeth – as a bridge.
Zirconium Porcelain Crowns (Zirconia)
In the news some time ago, Cubic Zirconia was reported as the latest material being used to simulate diamonds. It is the same base substance of Zirconium Dioxide, in its white crystalline form that is used in the creation of Zirconium Crowns. Zirconium Porcelain Crowns are renowned for being incredibly tough, extremely durable and aesthetically pleasing. Zirconium Crowns consist of a pure white metal core with porcelain fused to the outside, creating the look of a natural tooth which makes this so popular with patients across the globe. In some instances, Crowns are created from 100% Zirconium without the need for Porcelain. The real positive to this kind of Crown is that you will never see a black line should your gums recede over time, the Crown will always appear white at the gum line no matter what. The tooth has a much better transparency as the Crown is made up from 100% white materials. Zirconium Porcelain Crowns are also a healthy option compared to Metal Porcelain, as they are free from Nickel. The look is more aesthetically pleasing when you smile and therefore Zirconium/ Porcelain Crowns are recommended for your front teeth (6-8 upper/ 6-8 lower) or the number of teeth that are shown when you smile.
At our clinic Dentestetica the Zirconium Porcelain Crowns are crafted from A grade Zirconium in a laboratory known for dental excellence and accuracy. It is important to remember, that the skills of our Cosmetic Specialist are only one aspect of your treatment. The quality of the Crowns themselves, combined with the skills of the Dental Technician is also vitally important to ensure a good end result. In all cases, our laboratory use only the very best in materials that are sourced from across the globe.
Emax Veneers (porcelain)
The Emax veneer is considered as the ultimate solution in today’s market, Emax offers a colour and a durability that is unparalleled. No other veneer can compete or replicate the Emax veneer. It is an all-porcelain veneer with an attractive translucent colour which combines with a high level of strength and durability.
The Emax veneer is an important milestone in terms of technology advancement in modern dentistry. The porcelain veneer glass is hard and durable but at the same time, delicate in its appearance.
A seamless match with the existing teeth, the transparent colour and realistic form make it undistinguishable from one’s own teeth and by far the best choice veneer.
Inlay / Onlay
Inlays and onlays are “customized” fillings made in a prosthetic laboratory. They are more durable, tighter and more abrasion-resistant than traditional composite fillings.
At our DENTestetica clinic, we make full acrylic dentures (for full teeth replacement) and frame dentures with various fitting options. They can be placed on natural teeth, prosthetic crowns and also on implants, using special clips.
Regardless of the choice of a given type of crown/Veneer or bridge, all our patients have the possibility of an individual characterization of prosthetic restorations, e.g. some patients wish to have much brighter and flawless crowns, compared to their natural teeth, whereas other patients sometimes like to have some artificial discolourations and cracks, so that the crowns look like natural teeth. If our patients have doubts which option to choose, we enable them to visit our dental laboratory, where a high-qualified technician will choose the colour using the laser spectrophotometer (electronical device which measures the shade of adjoining natural teeth, to which the artificial crown will be made).
