Crowns, bridges, implants and dentures

What is a proshetic dentistry?

A dental prosthesis is a crown, an inlay, an onlay, a bridge, an implant or a denture.

What is the process like with crowns, inlays, onlays and bridges?

After clarification, the affected tooth or teeth are milled. Then an impression is taken of the milled tooth or teeth and the opposite side. Based on these impressions, the crown, inlay, onlay or bridge are made in the dental laboratory and inserted in the surgery after 1-2 weeks. With our new procedure, we can save ourselves the annoying impression of the patient with crowns and inlays, because we take a picture of the milled tooth with a digital camera and the all-ceramic crown or inlay will be milled by a machine in the surgery according to the design in only 9- 16 minutes and can be used immediately. For the patient this means only one session that lasts about 90 minutes. In addition, an all-ceramic crown is always much more beautiful than a crown with metal and porcelain veneer. Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to manufacture entire bridge parts, but this will also be developed in the foreseeable future.

ALL-CERAMIC CROWNS AND INLAYS CEREC CAD / CAM technology (partial or complete)

Modern computer technology enables our dental surgery in Javea on the Costa Blanca to create your crown, inlay or veneer in just one session.

We can save you the need to take an impression, a temporary crown and the otherwise usual second appointment with possibly renewed anesthesia. In addition, the costs are lower because the dental technician is no longer necessary.

As a natural material, CEREC ceramic is absolutely body-friendly, tooth-colored,color stabil and extremely chewable.

Tooth-colored fillings, porcelain inlays, CEREC restorations

Ceramic inlays: highly aesthetic, minimally invasive restorations

Inlays, veneers or partial crowns made of all-ceramic are the measure of all things in aesthetic dentistry. This means that your dentist or dentists can almost completely replace carious, crunched or broken tooth substance. The small dental workpieces are translucent and are individually adapted in color and surface structure to the natural tooth substance by our dental technician. The treated teeth appear completely intact despite the inlay, veneer or partial crown – a great advantage, especially with restorations on the anterior teeth.

The Cerec method was developed at the Dental Institute of the University of Zurich and has proven its worth in dental practice since 1985. Since then, numerous studies have shown that CEREC restorations have the same survival rates as gold if they are carefully processed.

When do you use crowns, inlays and bridges?

Crowns and inlays are used on severely damaged teeth. Implants and bridges are used when teeth are missing.

What is the process like with dentures?

In the case of prostheses, impressions are still made and the dentures is made by the dental laboratory. There are 2 different types of dentures either made of plastic or with metal and plastic. The choice depends on the condition of the remaining teeth and the wishes of the patient. Also mentioned here is that loose dentures can be made with more retention by using implants.

One often speaks of implants, what actually is an implant?

An implant is a screw that is inserted,screwed, into the bone so that a denture or crowns or bridges can then be attached to it.

When do you use an implant?

When the root is no longer there and then logically there is no longer a tooth. Several teeth can be missing. Even if a normal bridge is an undesirable or impossible solution.

What is the process like with an implant?

First it is clarified whether it is even possible to insert an implant. This depends on the quality and quantity of the bone, as well as the general personal state of health, but also on dependencies. If an implant is possible, an implant is inserted under local anesthesia in a first phase, which is followed by a healing phase and the implant grows with the bone. In a further phase, the screw is then exposed again and an attachment is screwed on so that the gum grows around it. And in a third phase, any structure (such as crown, bridge or push-button structures for removable prosthesis) is attached.

We are talking about different phases, how long does it take for the implant to grow into place?

Under normal circumstances 3 months in the lower jaw and 6 months in the upper jaw. We can now reduce this time thanks to a new technology that processes autologous blood to accelerate the healing process. This new technology can also be used in other dental procedures for bone augmentation such as periodontal disease.

The healing process in the upper jaw always takes longer than in the lower jaw.

But how long does the whole procedure take?

Thanks to the use of the latest technology, the growth process takes 9-10 weeks in the lower jaw and 8-20 weeks in the upper jaw.

This actually means an enormous reduction in healing time.
