Restorative therapy

Today it is possible to keep your own teeth for life. This success is based on patient-oriented individual prophylaxis and well-performed oral hygiene at home. We can help our patients by providing individualized consultation with appropriate findings, diagnostics, therapy and care. If your teeth suffer from loss of tooth substance, e.g. due to caries (one of the most common human diseases), they need to be restored. This is not only necessary for aesthetic reasons, but also in terms of mastication and phonetics.

Sometimes nature produces unusual tooth shapes or gaps between teeth that are perceived as unattractive. In this case, reshaping of the teeth (odontoplasty) with tooth-coloured composites may be necessary. In modern dentistry, various materials are used for restorative therapy. The size of the defect, the masticatory load, the general state of health, age, and the individual aesthetic needs of the patient play a decisive role in the selection of the appropriate material. Of course, time and financial expenditure must also be taken into account when selecting a material.

Direct restorations

With the direct method, the defect can be filled "directly" in one appointment, usually with composite materials. The focus here is on tooth-coloured composite restorations.

Very small, initial carious lesions can also be treated by the novel method of so-called caries infiltration, i.e. without drilling.

Composite Restorations

Tooth-coloured compounds of high-quality composites with glass-based fillers.

Indirect restorations

If so-called indirect restorations in the form of partial or full crowns are required, it usually concerns more extensive dental defects. In that case, at least two appointments are normally necessary for the restoration of a single tooth, since the restoration is made "indirectly" (outside the mouth) by means of a dental impression. For these types of restorations, the materials used are metal alloys containing gold, ceramics but also special composites.

Ceramics & Metal Alloy restorations

Laboratory fabricated restorations made of metal alloys (e.g. cast metal) or ceramics.

CAD/CAM restoration

With the help of an optical impression, the restoration is constructed on a 3D model on the computer.
