Dental crowns are the most common prosthetic solution in case of a functional or aesthetical tooth damage. They are made of ceramics which imitates the colour of the tooth well, and the crown protects the tooth from further damaging in order to prevent possible tooth decay. The crown may also correct the appearance and the colour of the tooth with the aim of returning a nice natural smile and getting back self-confidence.
Inlay, Onlay and Overlay are dental prosthetic implants. They are used for the reconstruction of a tooth damaged by caries or trauma and they are similar to usual fillings. They are an excellent alternative to crowns for those who prefer a minimally invasive treatment. They are made in a dental laboratory and are a superior solution to classical fillings, from both the aesthetic and functional point of view.
If a greater loss of teeth occurs and fixed prosthetic implants are not possible, removable prosthetics or dentures gives the opportunity to bring back a healthy bite and a beautiful smile. Removable or combined prosthetics offers an excellent jaw rehabilitation and recovers compromised functionality of speech and bite, in addition to giving a great aesthetic solution.
CAD/CAM technology is becoming a gold standard which enables quick and precise production of prosthetic replacements (crowns, veneers, bridges, inlay). With our Planmeca CAD/CAM system you can get the new tooth or have new veneers fit in only one visit.
