DENTAL PROSTHESES

Dental Protheses

Dental protheses are removable or fixed dental parts that replace the lost teeth.

Fixed and Removable Dentures

Fixed and removable prostheses are prosthetic restorations applied in partial or total edentulous mouth conditions. Fixed dentures are restorations applied in case of partial missing teeth, and are designed by getting support from the remaining teeth to fill the cavity of the lost tooth. The removable dentures is the prosthesis that the patient can attach and remove by himself/herself, that holds on the jaw by getting support from the existing teeth, and applied in cases where it is not possible to regain all the teeth in the mouth with fixed prostheses.

Zirconium Porcelain Veneers

In dentistry, metal-supported porcelains have been used for many years. However, it is an important disadvantage that metal porcelains cause discoloration of the gingiva tissue and also the reflection of the metallic color from the gingiva. Therefore, zircon porcelains that ensure a more aesthetic, more natural look are preferred in recent years. With regards to gum health, the compatibility of Zirconia with gums, its natural and aesthetic appearance are also extremely important. For this reason, Zirconia porcelain veneers are the treatments that can be used safely in the back regions, as well as in the front regions.

Full Porcelain Veneers

Full porcelain, also known as full ceramic and Empress veneers, are systems obtained with the implementation of porcelain on ceramic core instead of zirconia substructure used in zirconia porceleins. Full porcelains produced in laboratories with the help of special techniques and computers, are mostly used in the front regions due to their high light transmittance, biological compatibility and aesthetic appearance. Also, it is easily used in the back regions. These systems, which were introduced to the market both as an alternative to metal porcelain and zirconium veneers and to eliminate the disadvantages of metal porcelain and zirconia porcelain, have been used as an aesthetic treatment option in dentistry for many years.
