Quality and Aesthetics
Teeth replacements should achieve the same functions as your own teeth:
- natural and good looking
- allign properly within the teeth rows
- biologically compartible
- strong, stable and resistant
- restore natural chewing functionality
- guarantie optimum mouth hygiene
We offer aesthetically high-quality solutions.
Ceramic crowns and bridges
We may restore teeth completely and metal-free by using ceramic crowns or bridges. Full functionality is restored to achieve a natural feeling.
High content gold alloys with ceramic lining offer favourable optimal characteristics in terms of aesthetics, biocompatibility and longevity. Which material is applicable for you, depends on your personal situation and desires
If removable dentures are needed, several methods for fixing the dentures in the mouth are possible. We offer invisible supports for dentures.
There different possibilities for fitting in removable dentures depending on whether they should be partial or complete removal is required.
Minimal invasive treatment during tooth repairs
The minimal invasive treatment is central point during tooth preservation. If tooth repairs are necessary, we drill off as little as required of the of healthy tooth to safely remove the decayed tooth or reshaping of the tooth outlines.
We avoid to use amalgam for fillings if possible. Modern and compatible alternative fillings are used in place of amalgam. High-quality synthetics of the newest generation cause neither allergies nor electro-chemical reactions.
Teeth matched coloured composite fillings
It is particularly important that the colour of the fillings used on the visible part the front teeth is matched to the colour of the teeth so that the filling can hardly be seen. We use high-quality coloured composite fillings for this purpose.
Veneers – uncomplicated and invisible
Dental veneers are thin shells of tooth-like ceramic material that, when applied over the surface of a tooth, can cover worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing and discoloured teeth or cracks.
Ceramic Inlays are particularly durable and represent the most optimal tooth-aesthetic alternatives for fillings. Ceramic resembles the natural tooth substance and can be custom made to match the colour of the teeth easily to make the inlay almost invisible.
Gold-coloured Inlays are the best, safest, oldest and longest lasting dental restorations.
We are happy to advise you on the alternatives which are applicable for you.
Crown implants, bridges and dentures
No other method replaces a missing tooth so naturally and highly-aesthetic than implants. Additionally, they offer the advantage that healthy adjacent teeth are preserved and allow dentures to fit firmly and stable.
Dental implants are artificial teeth roots that are anchored into the jawbone to hold crowns or dentures in place. They offer an optimum solution for closing up teeth gaps and stabilize removable or permanent dentures.
Dental implants are usually fitted under local anaesthesia and thus without pain. An appropriate a healing time of approximately four to six months is necessary for the bone to heal. During the healing process an interim solution to make chewing and speaking possible is provided.
Each implantation is an individual case, which must be planned and prepared carefully. Not all patients and not all jaws are suitable for implants. The jaw bones may require further development if the existing bone mass is not sufficient to perform an implantation.
Discuss your personal requirements with us.
If the „bite“ does not fit
The muscles that control the chewing process are connected with the neck and spinal column musculature. Chewing problems occur when the upper and lower jaws are not properly aligned. Even the slightest deviations – caused by e.g. a badly fitted tooth replacement - would result in different complaints:
- Head aches affecting the jaws and face
- Ear pains with Tinnitus
- Neck, shoulder and back pains
- Spinal cord and bone joints problems
Jaw bone Treatment
We analyze malfunctions and offer appropriate therapies to relieve the pain. Different measures for aligning the upper and lower jaws to alleviate these problems are available:
- Orthodontic treatment
- Physiotherapeutical treatment
In most cases complaints disappear completely and at the same time permanent damage to the jaw bones and wearing of the teeth are prevented.
