Porcelain Veneers, Crowns and Bridges
Description of the procedure and the resulting effect
A veneer, which can be imagined as such a thin sheath, is a thin lamella made of dental porcelain, which can be used to change the shape and colour of teeth, to close gaps between teeth (diastema, tremata formation), to cover stains caused by hypoplasia, hypomineralisation of enamel or when tetracycline antibiotics are administered in childhood, so-called tetracycline teeth.
A crown is made in the laboratory and is an artificial replacement of the original dental crown . The most common reason for making and using a crown is the massive loss of the original dental crown, which no longer allows to solve the defect by a filling. There are several types with different quality and especially aesthetics. We will recommend a suitable type of crown during the online consultation and specify it in a personal consultation before the intervention.
A fixed bridge replaces a group of lost teeth, or it can replace an entire dental arch with a toothless jaw. It varies in size depending on the number of teeth to be replaced. It consists of artificial crowns, which are supported by implants, and of connectors, which link these artificial crowns to each other to prevent them from resting on the implants. Short bridges (e.g. 3-membered ones) are usually glued with cement, large bridges are more often connected with screws. In both cases, these are fixed prostheses that the patient cannot remove.
