A veneer is an extremely thin, translucent ceramic mould that is fixed to the front surface of the tooth to correct troublesome changes in colour or shape. Compared to crowns, treatment with veneers is much more gentle on the tooth structure.
With the innovative Invisalign treatment portfolio, we can correct various cases of malpositioned teeth – from crowded teeth and gap teeth to crossbite, overbite and underbite.
Crowns are used to treat individual teeth with crowns that are damaged or no longer aesthetically satisfactory for the patient, for example following an accident. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth; the gap is bridged using an artificial tooth that is bonded to the remaining teeth on either side.
Deep discolouration that cannot be removed by dental hygiene can easily be lightened with bleaching.
Using the Cerec method (computer-generated porcelain filling), we can replace missing tooth structure with a high-quality filling made from industrially prepared porcelain, all in just one appointment.
Artificial teeth and implantology
The simplest way to fill a gap or an edentulous (toothless) jaw is to make a partial or full prosthesis to replace or supplement the missing teeth.
Bridges are used to fill gaps between teeth. This method involves grinding down the neighbouring teeth so that the bridge can be fixed to them.
With implants, a kind of artificial tooth, we can replace individual or multiple missing teeth and fill gaps without having to grind down the neighbouring teeth.
Oral health and periodontics
Regular, professional teeth cleaning keeps your teeth and gums healthy. It also allows us to identify any tooth decay early on, which means we can treat and stop it at an early stage. During the cleaning, we also examine the periodontium, which is the specialised tissue that surrounds and supports the teeth, enabling us to preserve your teeth in the long term.
Composite (tooth-coloured) fillings
We replace damaged or missing tooth structure with light-curing plastic by attaching it to the healthy tooth structure. This is a relatively cheap and yet long-lasting treatment for tooth decay.
Root canal treatment
If the tooth decay is too deep, it may require a root canal treatment. In this treatment, the blood and nerve tissue inside the tooth is removed and the resulting cavity is sealed with what is called a ‘root filling’.
In the past, it took several appointments to replace large quantities of amalgam fillings or reconstruct broken teeth.
Thanks to the Cerec method, this treatment is complete in just one appointment; the result is a high-quality replacement that is gentle on the tooth structure and improves the appearance of the teeth.
In cases of deep periodontal pockets, cleaning the roots and removing the inflamed tissue under visual inspection is often unavoidable in order to save the tooth. To do this, the patient is given a local anaesthetic and, in a small operation in the affected area, everything is cleaned and then stitched up.
Parodontitis is an inflammation of the periodontium, which can be caused by aggressive bacteria. The resulting tooth loss and inflammation of the gums can be contained or even stopped by professional cleaning (dental hygiene) of the root surfaces.
Feeling nervous about your dental treatment? Nitrous oxide, or ‘laughing gas’, is a calming substance that helps to reduce anxiety. This makes it ideal for treating nervous patients, children and patients with a strong gag reflex.
