What is dental prosthetics?
Dental prosthetics represents that branch of dentistry that aims to restore severely damaged teeth, replace missing ones or restore the full or partial dentition of the arch.
This branch also acts independently to treat the previously mentioned problems, but also complements other branches of dentistry.
A good example of this is implantology, where dental crowns or fixed prostheses on implants represent the final stage of treatment.
Technology takes prosthetics to another level
The evolution of technology means that dental prosthetics have evolved a lot recently, this evolution bringing numerous benefits.
Cad-Cam technology is what makes dental prosthetics extremely safe, precise, giving the modern technician the possibility to model and mill the teeth with the help of the computer.
The first step in this process is the digital impression of the teeth with the help of a scanner, the main benefit being to get rid of uncomfortable casts.
The images obtained after scanning are transmitted to the computer and to the milling machine, which starts the execution of the work with just a few clicks.
Thus, the time required to obtain the result is only 2-4 days, compared to the classic version that can take several weeks, and the results are exceptional, characterized by the precision of a computer.
Dental crowns are prosthetic parts that aim to reconstruct a tooth, restoring both its functionality and aesthetics.
These prosthetic parts are needed when fillings cannot solve the problem (teeth severely affected by decay, broken, chipped, etc.)
Depending on the material from which they are made, there are several types of crowns, including:
They represent the most aesthetic prosthetic option, the material being able to imitate even the translucency of the natural tooth. In addition, it is possible to work with the color of the material so that the result is identical to other natural teeth.
Also in the case of this type of dental crowns Bucharest, it is very important to mention that they are biocompatible, but also extremely resistant, the patients’ accommodation with the final result being extremely fast.
Porcelain crowns on metal framework
Crowns of this type represent a prosthetic option with numerous benefits such as durability, strength and aesthetics. The success of the treatment also depends on the grinding of the remaining tooth, as sufficient space is required to allow the thickness of the selected material.
It should be specified that over time, these types of Bucharest dental crowns can reveal the metal line at the base of the tooth, once the gums recede. For those who want to avoid this disadvantage that can appear over time, there is the option of a porcelain collar that covers the metal part.
The golden crowns
They are less aesthetic options for reconstruction, but they are used in special cases where other types of materials are not indicated.
The very high durability makes them ideal for patients who have habits such as teeth grinding, for those with strong bites or for teeth that need strong support.
Dental bridges represent prosthetic elements that aim to replace some gaps on the arch, covering the missing space through the connection with the aging teeth on which this bridge will rest.
The elements that make up the dental bridge are the body of the bridge and aggregation elements, the body having the role of covering the missing space, and the aggregation elements being those through which the bridge is fixed to the neighboring teeth.
The teeth on which the bridge will be fixed must be ground, but it can also be fixed on implants.
Even if you face simple problems or more complex ones, both the doctors and the technicians of our clinic are prepared to offer you the right solutions to restore your teeth and obtain an aesthetic, but also functional smile.
