Aesthetics and functionality

Dental prosthetics are characterized by biocompatible materials, and are divided into fixed and mobile. If you are wondering which solution is better, it is almost always fixed prosthetics - due to better aesthetics and functionality.

Dental crowns, dental bridges, dental veneers or dental prostheses are the most common solutions for replacing a natural or damaged dental crown.

Before the procedure, the dentist will advise you on the best solution.

Frequently asked questions

Dental bridge - what is it and when do you need one?

A dental bridge is a minimum of three dental crowns joined together to replace missing teeth (to bridge the space with no teeth), or to improve the smile aesthetics. Because of its appearance and the way it replaces teeth, it is called a dental bridge.

Dental crowns (covers) - what types are there?

There are several types of dental crowns:

  • Ceramic crowns - the art of modern dental medicine. They most faithfully imitate a natural tooth and are the best solution in terms of gums.
  • Metal ceramic crown – a dark metal base covered with ceramic. So, the tooth is white on the outside and dark on the inside.
  • Ceramic crown on gold - the base is gold. The tooth is white on the outside, with gold on the inside.
  • Composite crowns - in modern dentistry, composite material, which until recently was used exclusively for fillings, is now also used to create crowns.
  • Zirconia ceramic crown - zirconia is a white material, so the zirconia ceramic crown is completely white, inside and out. A zirconia ceramic crown best imitates a natural tooth because it is transparent
  • EMAX crown - full ceramic, right next to zirconia ceramic in terms of aesthetics. More transparent than zirconia crowns, so the natural color of the teeth cannot be changed to such an extent.

“Teeth are prepared for crowns in case of serious tooth destruction caused by caries, abrasion or treatment, when it is necessary to change the bite height, or when we need to replace an existing worn crown or bridge. If we assess that there is a possibility of a tooth fracture, we will definitely go for a dental crown instead of fillings. With a dental crown, the remaining tooth structure is fully protected.”
