Metal free Crowns and Bridges in Germany

2010-06-25 08:31

If you have lost one or several teeth, crown and bridgework may be the solution for you.


Often referred to as a 'cap', crowns completely cover the affected tooth to rebuild its strength and enhance its shape and contour. This may be the case after a tooth has been broken or weakened by decay or a large filling. Other reasons a crown may be needed:

  • Strengthen Teeth after root canal treatment
  • Realign crooked teeth
  • Improve tooth shape and reduce food traps
  • Improve discolouration
  • Repair chips
  • Improve biting abilities
  • Amend damage from excessive grinding

Crowns provide aesthetic and functional benefits to patients and can be made from a variety of different materials. Previously traditional metal-based crowns were used to strengthen and rebuild teeth; today there are many aesthetically pleasing options available. Crowns can be made to match the exact colour, texture and translucency of your existing teeth.

A bridge is essentially a device used to replace one or more missing teeth. This treatment can dramatically improve the health and appearance of your smile after tooth loss.

Bridges are permanent solutions which are natural and discrete. This treatment uses a false tooth to 'bridge' the gap between two healthy teeth. A bridge can fill a gap of up to four teeth, if you have healthy teeth on either side. In Cemented bridgework, these teeth are prepared as crowns to serve as abutments and hold the bridge permanently in place.

Bridges help to eliminate the cycle of problems which can occur when your natural teeth are lost. They will prevent shifting and drifting of remaining teeth, decay, and further tooth loss.

In our practice, we use a special technique based on the high-end Sirona CEREC system. With CEREC, teeth can be restored in a single session with the patient, rather than the multiple sessions required with earlier techniques. As a result, taking the patient's dental impression becomes redundant (as well as the usual provisional care procedure). Moreover, ceramic is the material which is most similar to dental enamel.

 Additionally, with the latest software and hardware updates, crowns, veneers, and inlays can be prepared, using different types of ceramic material.

By the way, experience has shown that CEREC inlays are far more durable than an average German marriage!
