  • Fixed Prosthodontics

These are fixed restorations including crowns ( a cap covering a single tooth), bridges ( to replace missing teeth ), inlays and on lays ( to restore decayed and destructed teeth ) and veneers ( layer of restorative mat).

Composite or porcelain on the tooth surface, done to make you achieve an aesthetic smile and restore your normal masticatory habits.

Fixed Prosthodontics

Fixed prosthodontics is concerned with restoring teeth using restorations that are fixed into the patient's mouth. They are typically made in a laboratory after taking impressions (moulds) for the technician to work with. They are also known as 'indirect restorations'.

Indirect restorations can be used to restore and repair single or multiple teeth, and can be used to restore relatively small spaces between the teeth. Indirect restorations are relatively strong compared to fillings that can be placed at the chair side. Often the indirect restorations can be made to look better (superior aesthetics). It is difficult to say how long fixed restorations should last. If they are planned, executed and maintained correctly, they could last anywhere up to 10-12 years, and perhaps longer. The main types of indirect restoration are shown below:

Crown

Crowns are often referred to as 'caps'. They cover the remaining parts of the natural tooth when a large amount of structure has been lost. As such, they provide what is known as 'full coverage'. Crowns can be constructed from many different materials, ranging from an all-metal gold crown, through to a high strength ceramic crown. The type of crown depends on the amount of tooth left, the tooth type and the patient preference.

Bridge

 

Bridges are made to restore gaps between natural teeth. They can be held in place by a crowned adjacent tooth, or they can be stuck onto the adjacent tooth by a metal wing, with a special adhesive. Sometimes bridges are held in place on either side of the gap (conventional), sometimes on just one side (cantilever); it depends on the size of the gap and how the teeth function. Bridges can look very good, but sometimes the bridges that are stuck on with a metal wing darken the adjacent tooth a little. They are, however, much more conservative of tooth structure than if the adjacent tooth is crowned in order to hold the bridge.
