What is considered aesthetic is highly subjective, but in the course of the history of dentistry there are already a few set rules to follow. We aim to do our work with these rules in mind, while always taking into consideration the taste and wishes of the patients as well. Many various interventions fall into this category, all aiming to make restorations without aesthetic compromises.
When we say ’fillings’ in the everyday language, we mean restorations. We are proud of the fact, that the filling we do is not simply a white spot on the tooth; it is more of a restoration, in colour and form mimicking the anatomic and optical qualities of the original tooth. During the preparation of these, with different colours and layered structure -when needed by placing artificial ‘flaws’ we try to make a tooth that fits into its surroundings.
Besides what the dentist manually creates, dental pieces may also be necessary. In place of fillings inlays (or onlays) may be applied. With the help of porcelain or zirconia inlays even the seriously damaged, fractured teeth can be restored.
Out of these inlays we can make inlay bridges with the help of glass fibre, with which we can restore an absent teeth without grinding. Even when they are cared for perfectly, it can happen that for some reason (e.g. accident) a tooth has to be removed. If you have healthy teeth next to the absence, of course you would not want them grinded for the restoration. This is when the without grinding fixable inlay bridge - together with insertion- is a good solution.
The porcelain shells/porcelain jacket crowns serve mainly for correction of the upper frontal teeth. During the preparation of the teeth we grind away some of the teeth’s own material to make space for the dental piece made after an impression, which we fix by sticking. We are able to correct irregularities of surface, colour, shape or position. The long process to correct the apertures between the teeth can also be replaced by this method.
