Prosthetic dentistry


A Crown is a strong cover that entirely lies over the top of a tooth, restoring broken down teeth to their ideal anatomical shape and colour, while protecting the remaining tooth structure underneath. It is an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or weakened by decay or a very large filling. Crowns can be made of metal-ceramic, zirconia-, gold-ceramic, titan-ceramic and porcelain.

Until the permanent crown is prepared temporary crown made of plastic is put over the tooth.







When a tooth ismissing, a bridge can be used. It is made up of artificial teeth which are permanently fixed to healthy supporting teeth by crowns.





Dentures are removable false teeth. They are typically made from impressions (molds) that are taken of the inside of the mouth and they are made of a type of plastic or porcelain that duplicates the shape, size and function of the teeth. When only some teeth are replaced, it is called a "partial denture". The special type of the partial denture is the combined denture with hidden anchorage.
