Inlays and Onlays

When the decay or the fracture of the tooth is too extensive to be restored with the conventional composite tooth coloured filling we choose the inlay which offers the least invasive treatment option and in addition offers more strength for the longevity of the restoration.

The tooth is prepared in such a way that the indirect restoration is done in the laboratory and later cemented on the tooth. In the meantime while the inlay is being fabricated in the lab the cavity is being filled with a temporary material to protect the tooth and the nerve. As materials we use ceramic or zirconium depending on the situation. The shade of the restoration is chosen to blend in with the natural colour of your teeth.

Metal Free Crowns

A crown, as its name suggests, is a covering that sits over the top of the tooth. Crowns are used in many different scenarios as they protect, cover, seal and strengthen your teeth. We use only crowns that have no metal content. We use Zirconia and ceramic as materials.

Emax is a type of all-ceramic crown with an appealing translucent color which is combined with extra strength and durability. This crown is made of lithium disilicate ceramic: this is a top grade material which has been harvested for its toughness, durability and opaque qualities which makes it great choice for strength and aesthetics plus it is considered a breakthrough in dental crown technology. You get a glass ceramic crown which is tough and enduring but delicate in appearance.

Metal Free Bridges

Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth. The two posts on either side have to be prepared (reduced in size) enough to fit a crown on each one. Models are made for the lab to fabricate the restoration. In the meantime if possible and necessary the prepared teeth and the gap are being temporarily covered until the final restoration is ready. The bridge is made to blend in with the natural look of the patients teeth and after thorough examination of the fit and the shade is cemented with a final cement.
