Cosmetic dentistry is needed if a piece of the patient’s tooth or the whole tooth is missing, even if the tooth itself is in such a bad condition that needs to be extracted.
There are more types of dentures, it can be fixed or detachable (or fixed removable denture). Fixed replacements are mostly bridges, crowns or dentures.
What does dental implant mean?
The artificial replacement of the tooth root is called tooth implant, which takes places in the jaw bone. The crown, the entire bridge, or the removable fixed denture are placed on it. The material of the implant is titanium, which does not irritate the surrounding tissues, and it is 100% biocompatible.
What is the dental crown and what types can we distinguish?
The crownis a fixed artificial dental restoration, located on the tooth piece above the gum, optionally can be attached to a tooth implant. If the tooth itself is too damaged that it can’t be applied to dentures, the crown may be a viable solution. The most common types of material are porcelain crowns and zirconium crowns.
Our dentists suggest dental crown if there is a large amount of tooth missing due to neglected dental caries or fillings. The crown can also be attached for general correction of the teeth – or for aesthetic reasons (tangled teeth, large gaps between teeth).
