Fixed prosthesis

This dental service consists of:

The dental prosthesis is a dental brach which specializes in obtaining balanced teeth from both functional and aesthetic point of view. The guaranteed lifespan for all prosthesis performed in the Swiss Ecodent clinic is 10 years so long as the hygienic and prevention conditions recommended by the dentist are met.

Our clinic has its’ own dental technique lab which has the special equipment needed for creating the constructions to be applied over the teeth’s or the implant’s surfaces and ceramic works on a zirconium biocompatible bed by applying the computerized technology CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacturing).

The Swiss Ecodent dentists are internationally specialized and certified in dental prosthesis and aesthetic.

Types of prosthesis:

  • prosthesis works – dental crowns and tooth bridges
  • dental incrustations (inlay, onlay)
  • dentures (fixed/mobile, with or without special systems)
  • dental dressings (lumineers, veneers)

Inlay /onlay is a treatment ceramical solution which is made in the lab and which takes the tooth’s form in an obturation place where up to 3 sides of the side teeth can be involved. The solutions can made of gold, zirconium, acrylic or pressed ceramic. Their average lifespan is up to 20 years. These restorations are beneficial from a functional and aesthetic point of view.

Before – Traditional seal
Dupa – Inlay & Onlay
The procedure is called “onlay” when the deterioration is extensive and it includes one or more cusps (tooth crowns) or totally covering the oclusion surface and the side walls.

They are used for the front teeth which need their whole visible surface to be restored because of a cavity or a defect. Those made in Romania last between 5 and 10 years while those made in Switzerland last 25 years.
Veneers pros:
  • aesthetic
  • predictable results
  • lack of post surgery sensitivity
  • comfortable
Lumineers are by far superior to any of their kind and they have become popular in the last 30 years, being the favourites of the Hollywood stars. They are made of durable, long lasting porcelain and they can be as thin as contact lenses.

Lumineers pros:
  • aesthetics
  • predictible results
  • lack of post surgery sensivity
  • comfortable

The crowns are prosthesis which cover or wrap around the visible part of the tooth. They are used in cases when the cavity/enamel/dentin tooth destruction is greater and it can only be redone through an obturation or inlay/onlay. In general they are used when over 60% of the tooth surface is destroyed.

Crown pros:

  • restoring the tooth from an aesthetic and functional point of view
  • it requires a few sessions for building
  • the patient gets easily accustomed to the crowns

The tooth bridges can be built from several materials:

  • metallic ceramic
  • zirconium
  • acrylic

The tooth bridges are fixed prostheses which are being used for a long time. They are made of 2 parts. Each of them plays a role in making the prosthesis and allowing it to function.

The aggregation elements are the pieces which ensure the tooth bridges. They are basically crowns attached to the bridge. They will be cemented on the especially prepaired teeth, sustaining the body of the bridge. They are built from one piece for the durability of the prosthesis.

The body is the part of the tooth bridge which ensures the replacing of the missing teeth. A bridge can have several bodies depending on the number of breaches which it is restoring.

  • Special bridges:
  • Implant bridges: they are supported on the jaw bone dentures.
  • Bridges with special systems: they are movable bridges which use special anchoring systems which are similar to the moving prosthesis: eyelets, grooves and telescopes.
  • Inlay bridges: they have agregation elements instead of crowns, incrustations or inlays.
  • Bridges on dental pivots: they are not different from the natural teeth bridges, with the exception of the start of the bridge.
