Dental prostheses are used to restore a tooth or replace one or more missing teeth.
These are prostheses fixed on teeth or dental implants.
These prostheses are at the same time aesthetic, resistant and comfortable. Crowns, bridges and inlays are fixed prostheses.
A crown is an element that covers the visible part of a tooth.
After a very large cavity or fracture, your tooth may have been devitalized.
Because of the loss of tooth tissue and devitalization (which dries and weakens the tooth), your tooth must be crowned.
Crown placement Crown in place
The crown can be made of different materials, the most common being ceramic, more aesthetic, and metal alloys.
A bridge is a means of replacing one or more missing teeth, using the remaining teeth.
A bridge can be made in different materials, the most common are metal alloys and ceramics.
It is important to replace missing teeth, especially because of the movement of adjacent or opposite teeth that are looking for support. The missing tooth (s) can also be replaced by dental implants.
A tooth missing Bridge placement
Inlay/onlay: Composite element made by the dental laboratory, which is embedded exactly in a previously cleaned and cut tooth cavity, following a caries or major fracture, in order to reconstitute the anatomical shape of the tooth.
The inlay/onlay therefore makes it possible to consolidate the rest of the tooth permanently. Contrary to traditional filling techniques (amalgam, sealing…) it does not exert any pressure on the tooth walls, thus preventing them from fracturing.
With this technique, it will be possible to treat weak to moderately dilapidated teeth, in the event of greater damage, a ceramic crown will be considered.
Cavity Inlay/Onlay in place
They consist of replacing missing teeth with a device that can be complete or partial depending on the missing teeth. These prostheses rest on both the gums and the remaining teeth.
Full top and bottom prosthesis
The holding is done by a suction cup phenomenon, thanks to the saliva film between the prosthesis and the gingiva.
Partial prosthesis of the lower jaw with a metal base, or stellite.
Removable prosthesis holding problems can be solved with dental implants.
Our crowns and prostheses are all manufactured by laboratories located in Villeurbanne (69), Bron (69) and Tigneu (38).
They have a “Label D” quality label and comply with the EN ISO 13485 standard with Annex II..
