Nowadays, prosthetics is much more than making the benefits for the patient. Modern prosthetic remedies also aim at superior aesthetics, which implies a completely natural appearance of teeth. This is made possible by the exceptional development of dental materials and the use of modern computer systems.
After a detailed dental examination and insight into the condition of your teeth, a decision is made as to what kind of prosthetic care would be the best in your case. In our dental office - Panakeia you get everything in one place, fast, efficient and quality.

They reconstruct the complete tooth both functionally and aesthetically, reinforce it, shape it and fit in with the dental row. They are applied in heavily damaged teeth, devitalized or teeth with high volumes or irregularities. Also, they are made in the teeth that will be bridge supports. The examination determines whether it is necessary to prepare teeth endodontic (nerve extraction) or periodontal. It is also assessed whether the endodontically treated tooth will need to be reinforced with a fiberglass anchor.
After preparation for crowns (preparation-grinding), temporary crowns are made. There is a printout, making a crown in a dental laboratory, tests and, when satisfied both the dentist and the patient, the cementing of the toothbrush is approached.
Until recently, metal-ceramic crowns were more commonly chosen than non-metallic crowns.
Metal-ceramic crowns as the basis have a metal through which the ceramics are applied in the appropriate color. They fulfil all functional and aesthetic requirements.
However, in the case of front teeth, the best choice are ceramic (non-metallic) crowns, which satisfy even the highest aesthetic standards. Unlike metallic - ceramic, non - metallic crowns transmit light, which gives them a much more natural appearance. Then, there is no danger of the appearance of the dark edge on the right, which sometimes happens with metal - ceramic crowns. They are much better fitting into the dental row, which is very important when only a few crowns are made, because they are hard to distinguish from natural teeth. Today's choice of ceramics (primarily zirconium) allows for durability in the lateral region, not only in the front.
Bridges are one of the solutions when one or more teeth are missing. The carriers are adjacent teeth, which must be prepared, (grind for crowns). This makes them an inferior solution in relation to a bridge with implants, especially if there are 3 or more teeth missing. The reason is the overload of the tooth carrier.
Bridges are made in the final phase of treatment of periodontitis, when they serve to fix moving, loose teeth. They can also be combined with prostheses. Similar to crowns, bridges can be metal - ceramic and non-metallic. Prices of crowns can be found in our price list.
Thin ceramic tiles that are fixed to the outside surface of your teeth are a great solution to achieve a perfect smile. They are used for mild irregularities in the position and shape of the teeth, sputtered, worn, cracked teeth... The great advantage of the facets is that they require minimal grinding (removal of the tooth substance), and sometimes they are made without any grinding (non-prep veneers). They can also be made of composites (white seals), but ceramics are a much better solution in terms of aesthetics and durability. They are perfectly combined with non-metallic crowns and bridges.
Another situation where the facets are the ideal solution is when there are the spaces between the teeth (diastemas), where the teeth get a completely natural, new look. Whether they are made on a smaller number of teeth or to reconstruct the entire smile, the facets always look natural and beautiful.
In the event of a greater destruction of the tooth crown, fill- seals are often not satisfactory. Patients complain of food retaining and often plowing the edges of the filling. In these cases, inlays or onlays are a far better solution. They look like seals, but they are made using CAD technology.
If the patient is left without all his teeth, one of the solutions is making complete dentures. Their aesthetics most often meets all the criteria, but as far as comfort is concerned, they are not ideal solutions. But, in spite of their shortcomings and initial difficulties, patients are adapted after some time. Of course, a better solution is the concept of all on four, which, with the help of four implants, reconstructs the entire tooth arch, a bridge that is fixed on the implants.
If the patient retains some of the teeth, the dentures are partial skeletal prostheses, the so-called -wisil. Their base is made of metal skeleton, and the surface is minimally reduced, which means greater comfort for patients, less sense of foreign body in the mouth and better stability during the function. The great advantage of skeletal prosthesis is in the fact that it performs a physiological transfer of pressure while chewing over the remaining teeth, while relieving jaw bones and preventing their resorption.
Skeletal partial prostheses can also be combined with fixed prosthetics, where the connection between the prosthesis and the bridge is made of precise bonding elements, the so-called attachments. These combined works satisfy all aesthetic and functional requirements.
