Dental crowns – Fixed dentures – Removable dentures – Total dentures
(Dental prosthesis offers a 7 year warranty)
When the tooth crown is severely damaged by the carious process or accidental trauma and its reconstruction with composite is unstable, the need arises for the crown of the tooth to be reinforced with a dental crown which will be a fixed one. Dental crowns are made from different materials. The most used are porcelain metal crowns, all ceramic, all zirconia, ceramic gold, and palladium ceramic.
The most beautiful crowns for a tooth are Zirconia Crowns and All Ceramic Crowns :
One of the biggest advantages of zirconia is its strength and durability. Zirconia crowns are translucent – perfect natural color, metal-free so less allergic, 100% biocompatible, extremely durable, no dark gingival margin, and bond well with your teeth. They do not transmit temperature so more biologic. These make zirconia crowns one of the most famous crown types. Patients prefer to use them, for posterior crowns and especially for front teeth. They are often used in restorative dentistry to restore a broken/damaged tooth and esthetic dentistry also. (CAD/CAM) technology)
All Ceramic Crowns
A ceramic dental crown is a crown that is made entirely out of a ceramic material such as porcelain. It is white and very hard, making it a good choice for use in a crown. They mimic the translucency of natural teeth. Only with pure porcelain or pure ceramic can you have such translucency. Benefits of all ceramic crowns are: Strength and durability, natural look, no allergic reactions, no metal absorption, no MRI interference (ceramic crowns will not react to the magnetic field), reduced sensitivity – no thermal/ temperature conduction. All-ceramic crowns can be used for front and back teeth. (CAD/CAM) technology)
Zirconia dental crowns and All Ceramic Crowns fit perfectly due to (CAD/CAM) technology.
New Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) materials and systems have been developed and evolved in the last decade for fabrication of all-ceramic restorations. Dental CAD/CAM technology is gaining popularity because of its benefits in terms of time consuming, materials savings, standardization of the fabrication process, and predictability of the restorations.

When one or more teeth are missing in the dental arch, both maxillary and mandibular, it becomes necessary to replace the missing tooth or teeth with artificial ones.
A fixed prosthesis is an optimal solution that restores function, aesthetics, and phonetics with more comfort for the patient since it is immovable.
The fixed prosthesis consists of artificial teeth that will be placed in the space and the two dental crowns that will wear the supporting teeth which stay at the edges of the space. The supporting teeth can be natural, dental implants, or a combination of both.
Prosthetic considerations vary by the area where space is located, the number of missing teeth, the condition of the teeth at the edges of the space (the supporting teeth), the condition of the periodontium that includes the gums and the jaw bone as well. All these evaluations are analyzed by the doctor and then he determines the most sustainable and optimal treatment plan in each case.
To make a fixed prosthesis, the supporting teeth must meet certain criteria. When they are not suitable to ensure stability, do not have a crown root ratio at least equal, are very inclined, when we have periodontal problems and the teeth have mobility, or when space where the missing teeth are too large, they come to our aid dental implants as an excellent solution for the successful realization of fixed prosthesis.

Removable partial dentures
These types of dentures are used when we lack one or more teeth. When we say removable prostheses this means that they can be removed and reset, which is seen as a small disadvantage compared to other types. They come as a solution when it is impossible to place a fixed prosthesis. Removable partial dentures connect to existing teeth through wires or attachments that are integrated connecting devices. The types of removable dentures are: Simple plastic/acrylic dentures, Skeleton metal prosthesis, specific dentures (when we have a missing tooth at the edge of the dental arch), flexible partial dentures (dental company VALPLAST)
Total removable prosthesis
When the patient no longer has any teeth left in the mouth, we must perform a total replacement of all teeth in the dental arcade to restore his function and aesthetics. For many years has been used a total removable prosthesis. It is made of plastic/acrylic material and the patient has no difficulty in placing it and removing it from the mouth. The use of this prosthesis also requires a healthy jaw bone where the prosthesis will be supported.
If the patient chooses to have a total removable prosthesis but the jaw bone where the prosthesis will be supported does not provide stability, then we suggest as an excellent solution the placement of 2 dental implants to support this prosthesis. See Dental Implants
ALL ON 4 – 6 – 8
Since the implantation of dental implants became possible, most patients prefer fixed bridges that are placed over 4,6, or 8 implants. Using this formula the patient regains the feeling of natural teeth, even more aesthetic, even whiter.
A wonderful smile in the simplest way ever!
