Complete Dentures

Complete dentures or full dentures are a removable device that can be used to replace missing teeth. The denture teeth are made out of porcelain or acrylic and held together by an acrylic base. Partial dentures are similar but only used to replace some teeth, while a complete denture is a replacement for the full set. Full dentures may be required when you lose all of your teeth and they can help fill out your appearance again, and leaving you feeling more confident to smile.

Flexi Dentures

Flexible dentures are a kind of partial denture, but these ones are made of different materials than ordinary partial dentures. Most flexible dentures are made of a thin thermoplastic such as nylon, compared to the thicker, more rigid acrylic used in full dentures.

You may find that flexible partial dentures are a more comfortable fit than other removable partials, especially if you’re still new to wearing replacement teeth. Not only that, but most partial dentures are usually made with metal parts which can sometimes show. Flexible dentures do not use any metal parts so tend to look and feel a lot more natural.

Over dentures

Over dentures are replacement teeth retained by dental implants. They were developed to help both partial and fully edentulous patients regain a quality of life, which most likely has been missing since they lost their teeth.

Benefits of Over Dentures are:
  1. Promotes Better Digestion.
  2. Slows Bone loss by stimulating the bone in your jaw.

  4. Dentures worn on the upper and lower jaw are more comfortable .

Fixed Partial Dentures

Fixed partial dentures are dental prostheses that are luted, screwed, or mechanically attached or otherwise securely retained to natural teeth, tooth roots, and/or dental implant abutments. During the past decades, many types of FPDs or "bridges" have been used to replace missing teeth. With the introduction and widespread use of osseointegrated implants, many missing teeth are now being replaced in this manner rather than with FPDs. Dental bridges can, of course, still be used successfully. These will include: cast-gold, stress-broken bridges; resin-bonded, etched retainers; porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) bridges; and all-ceramic bridges, including zirconia.

Metal-free crowns

Metal-free crowns are a type of highly aesthetic restorations entirely made of ceramic. They can imitate natural characteristics of teeth, transmitting light like natural teeth. They fit in alignment much better, particularly if only some teeth are restored, rather than all of them. In such cases it is impossible to make a difference between Metal-free crowns and natural teeth. Their interior is made of materials described as biocompatible, which means that they do not cause any reaction of the surrounding tissue, enabling the gingiva to shape around them as if they were natural teeth. Metal-free crowns are a combination of supreme quality and durability.

CAD CAM

Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) are terms describing software that make it possible for dentists to perform complex procedures faster, more easily and more accurately. CAD/CAM technology constructs restorations, like crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays and bridges, from a single block of ceramics, which makes the final product more precise compared to traditional fabrication methods.

Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia is a metal classified as a member of the titanium family and is mined around the world. It is found in dinnerware and electrical fixtures among other products. It's known for its durability, making it an ideal product to use in dental crowns, especially posterior crowns that require a lot of strength for chewing and grinding food.

Over the past few years, Zirconia crowns have grown more popular for good reasons. They’re extremely durable, and match the look of natural teeth well. Despite the hype, most patients do not know much about this type of dental crown.
