If you are missing one or more teeth or you do not like the appearance of your teeth, they can be replaced or modified with prosthetic substitutes in the form of implants, veneers, crowns or bridges.
After examining the condition of your teeth and x-rays, we will suggest the best solution for your smile.
Composite veneers are thin pieces of composite material specially designed and affixed to the front of teeth to improve the appearance, colour and shape of the tooth. If you have severely discoloured tooth/teeth, chipped edges, if they are unevenly placed in the dental arch, have holes, dents, or there are spaces between the teeth, one of the possible solutions are composite veneers.
Composite veneers require minimal or no drilling of teeth, they are finished in one visit, they are aesthetically satisfactory and are cheaper than ceramic.
Ceramic veneers are specially formed thin pieces of highly aesthetic ceramic adhesively cemented on the front of the tooth in order to improve the appearance, colour and form of the tooth.
Is this a solution for me?
The creation of veneers saves the tooth because in comparison to classic crowns, only the front side of the tooth is drilled and this is done at a minimum level (no-prep veneers). According to the newest research, the duration of a veneer is 5-15 years. Furthermore, the ceramic veneers completely mimic the natural colour of the tooth, which the composite ones cannot always do. They do not lose their colour as the composite ones, and are much stronger and durable.
Ceramic crowns (coverings)
Ceramic crowns are "caps" placed on the polished tooth to protect it from cracking and to return it to being functional and make a more beautiful smile.
There is a difference between metal-ceramic crowns and crowns of non-metal ceramics (zirconium, e.max etc.). Metal ceramic crowns are stronger and aesthetically acceptable. Non-metal crowns are an aesthetically flawless solution which also avoids potential future occurrences of black or dark edges along the gums.
If you have a tooth that has a large filling, or which has been weakened by cavities and fillings and if the filling itself cannot resolve the situation, metal or non-metal crowns come into consideration, depending on the situation in your mouth and your preferences, requirements and capabilities. If there are more of these teeth, and if some are missing, a metal ceramic or non-metal ceramic bridge and implants can be considered.
A bridge is a structure that is placed over the drilled teeth to make them stronger, strengthened and beautified, and with the primary purpose of replacing one or more teeth. The bridge may be a metal-ceramic or non-metal ceramic. A metal-ceramic bridge is solid and aesthetically acceptable aid that is financially favourable. Non-metal ceramics are aesthetically more beautiful and are created using a special technique; a CAD / CAM computer-driven system with specially adapted apparatus, and are thus more accurate and avoid the factor of human error.
