AESTHETIC DENTISTRY  |  PROSTHETICS

Bleaching | Teeth whitening

Your aspiration is for whiter teeth? Consider teeth whitening, whereby the process of bleaching teeth lightens your normal tooth colour. We offer at-home teeth whitening treatments, where the patient applies bleach onto a custom-made, prefabricated whitening tray, and wears it overnight until the desired result is obtained. This usually requires 2-3 applications.

Veneers | Crown

In the case of advanced tooth damage, a dental crown is needed to restore the tooth. This may be necessary in a number of situations. For example, in the case of chipped teeth (dental injury), extensive caries, advanced acid damage, root-treated teeth, or when the anterior region of the teeth has an unattractive appearance.

 

If an improved aesthetic is your main concern, we can occasionally only achieve this by applying ceramic shells or veneers to the anterior teeth.

CEREC

CEREC is a computer-assisted process used to produce durable and highly aesthetic ceramic fillings, or ceramic crowns. The acronym CEREC stands for CEramic REConstrution, a method developed in 1980 by Professor W. Mörmann and Dr. Med. M. Brandestini at the University of Zurich. Unique to the CEREC method is the ability to produce restorative ceramic parts for the patient’s immediate use in a single treatment session. This eliminates the need for a dental impression and a temporary crown, thereby reducing the cost of treatment by almost half. Initially, three-dimensional images of the teeth are created with a camera. Afterwards, the images are displayed on a computer screen, using computer-aided design (CAD) processes, and the fillings or crowns are software generated. Subsequently, a milling unit carves the restorative piece completely automatically from a prefabricated ceramic block using CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) processes. Finally, the ceramic restorative piece can be fitted and bonded at once.

Bridges

In dentistry, a bridge refers to a fixed, orthodontic replacement of missing teeth. A gap in your teeth can be closed by using a bridge, which spans the space. In this case, the adjacent teeth serve as abutment teeth to which the missing tooth (intermediate member) is secured by crowning.

Prerequisites for the longevity of a crown, or a bridge, are a healthy foundation and good oral hygiene.

Prostheses

If numerous teeth have been lost or replaced, a removable denture can help. Partial dentures are attached to the remaining teeth by a choice of anchoring systems, for example, by means of a clasp or a denture push-button system.

 

In the completely edentulous (toothless) jaw, full dentures are employed to restore function and aesthetics. Stabilization in the upper jaw is achieved by way of suction. It can be difficult to support a full denture in the lower jaw, even if the jaw has well-shaped ridges, due to its anatomical shape. In these cases, adequate support can be provided by inserting a small number of implants, to which the prosthesis can be anchored.

 

The advantages of a prosthesis are, firstly, the relatively low costs, and secondly, cleaning the prosthesis and teeth is uncomplicated. Disadvantages, however, include a reduced degree of comfort for the wearer, and an increased susceptibility to caries in the abutment teeth.
