Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are tooth-shaped caps which fit over your teeth. Crowns can be used over teeth with large heavily filled, blackened or root-filled teeth. They can also be used cosmetically to improve the appearance of your front teeth. Your dentist can tell you which of your teeth would best be protected by crowns before problems develop. Crowns provide strong, attractive, long term protection for your mouth.

They are usually made of porcelain, and the porcelain "tooth" may have a gold or metal core for added strength. Where a natural appearance is not essential (e.g. at the back of your mouth), a gold or other metal crown may be used.

A bridge is an artificial tooth supported by the teeth on either side of the space. Your dentist prepares your teeth on either side of the gap, and takes a mould which is sent to a dental technician. The dental technician makes the complete structure, using porcelain (for appearance) and a metal core (for strength). Your dentist then places the bridge into your mouth. Bonded bridges that do not require shaping of the neighbouring teeth are sometimes used.

Stronger materials are sometimes necessary for bridges used in back teeth. A bridge is a long term, very attractive way of helping you fill the gap!
PFM Crowns
Porcelain fused to metal (PFM) dental crowns is one of dentistry's primary restorations of choice because, when properly constructed and seated, they are strong, reliable and esthetic and a good choice for either front or back teeth.

These crowns are strong enough to withstand heavy biting force, and at the same time can have an excellent cosmetic appearance.

Some of their advantages are that they have a lot of strength and stability provided by the underlying metal, they have a nearly natural appearance, and they are used in single units to roundhouse bridges. They also have a very high rate of long term success.
Implants
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don't feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing.

If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news! Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own! Under proper conditions, such as placement by a periodontist and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for implants.
Captek™
Captek™ are crowns and bridges that mimic and surpass natural teeth in esthetic and function. The basis for Captek™ esthetics is duplicating the color of the inner structures of a natural tooth, the pulp and dentin. Captek™ structural basis is a strong, shock absorbing and biocompatible internal structure for a crown or bridge.

A unique advanced nano technology of gold composites provides the desired color background as well as a complex mechanism that protects natural teeth and implants, and not less importantly - the porcelain. The gold composite is a highly biocompatible material with no base metal and oxides, that protects the gingiva from harmful bacteria.
IPS Empress™
The IPS Empress™ System is continuously being further developed to keep abreast of the latest trends. As a consequence, decisive enhancements have been made with regard to its aesthetics and function and its processing properties. With more than 33 million restorations fabricated with the leucite glass-ceramic throughout the world, the system has gained a reputation for producing long-lasting, natural-looking results and maintaining high quality standards.

IPS e.max is a modern and innovative system which covers the entire spectrum of all-ceramic indications ranging from thin veneers to 10-unit bridges. IPS e.max allows you to offer your patients impeccable esthetic restorations, which are also characterized by high mechanical strength. Depending on the case at hand and the required strength, you can choose the most suitable all-ceramic material. Lithium disilicate (LS2), which demonstrates superb esthetic properties, is used to restore single teeth in the anterior and posterior region.
Zirconia
Zirconium crowns and bridges are so strong they can be used anywhere in the mouth. Zirconium crowns can withstand the biting pressure of the front teeth as well as back teeth grinding.

The look of zirconium crowns and bridges is so close to natural teeth that it is hard to tell the difference and it is this quality which makes it very useable within dental work. Zirconium crowns can be fixed using traditional dental cements.

Zirconium crowns have quickly become the preferred material for dental crowns. Zirconium is a very strong substance that can endure wear and tear of everyday use. When looking at Zirconium crowns from an aesthetic point it is clear and very similar to a natural tooth and reflects light the same way. This may be important if your new crowns are on the front of your mouth and it is particularly relevant in cases where the crown will be seen next to the natural teeth.
Removables
Removable dental appliances are often used to replace missing teeth. It is incredibly important to restore missing teeth as they can cause your existing teeth to shift and lead to bite problems, speech impediments and bone loss.

Another type of removable dental restorations are partial dentures which are designed to replace one or several teeth. Unlike a dental bridge, removable partial dentures can be removed for cleaning.

Flexible partial dentures are flexible partial dentures use a flexible base to adjust to the movements of your mouth. Flexible partial dentures do not contain the metal found in traditional partial dentures and provide a better fit to feel more like your natural teeth.

Full dentures are issued if you have lost all your teeth, full dentures are needed to restore basic mouth functions and slow down bone loss. Full dentures have been around for many years but have seen some changes recently. Removable dentures can now be secured with magnets attached to dental implants to help keep them in place.
