What are dentures?

But you are not alone! According to the fourth German oral health study, every adult  has 2.7 teeth missing. Due to this high demand, a large number of different techniques for dentures have already been developed. With CASA DENTALIS, your dentists in Berlin in Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf and Steglitz-Zehlendorf, you are in safe hands.

We generally divide dentures at CASA DENTALIS, your dentist from Berlin, into three categories:

  • Fixed dentures
  • Removable dentures
  • Combined dentures
veneers in Berlin

Fixed dentures

Veneers

What are veneers?

Veneers at CASA DENTALIS consist of wafer-thin special ceramics, which the dentist applies with an adhesive onto the anterior region to conceal aesthetic defects.

The procedure begins with your dentist removing a thin layer of the enamel. Afterwards, an impression is taken from the tooth so that one of our Berlin dental technicians can create a precisely fitting veneer. Finally, the veneer shell is glued to the tooth using a special adhesive.

Your CASA DENTALIS dentists in Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf and Steglitz-Zehlendorf offer  two types of veneers: prep veneers and non-prep veneers. With the latter, the veneer shell can be glued directly onto the tooth – without prior removal of tooth enamel.

Veneers are used at CASA DENTALIS in Berlin in the following cases:

  • Discoloration of the tooth
  • Minor tooth shape correction
  • Minor tooth position correction
  • Damaged corners
  • Accidental damage
  • Tooth gaps
  • The protection of the tooth nerve from external stimuli

The high-quality veneers from CASA DENTALIS are to impress with numerous advantages:

  • Natural transparency of the ceramic material enables individual color adjustment
  • High biocompatibility, therefore no health risks
  • Difficult collection of deposits on or under the veneer, thus protection against caries and periodontitis
  • Longevity of shells of 10 years

Dental crown

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is actually the part of the natural tooth that protrudes from the gums and is, therefore, visible. In informal terms, however, the term crown is mostly used for the artificial replacement of this natural dental crown.

In the invisible area: metal alloys with a high proportion of gold or platinum.

In the visible area: veneers that are made of ceramic or all-ceramic (for highly allergic patients).

Your local dentists at CASA DENTALIS will be happy to advise you on the type of material to be used for your individual crown. Simply come to one of our practices in Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf or Steglitz-Zehlendorf or contact us by phone.

Dental crowns are used by your CASA DENTALIS dentist as follows:

  • to cover implants
  • for fastening a bridge (link)
  • to protect a tooth from breaking
  • as dental filling for a tooth with insufficient substance

Dental bridges

What is a bridge?

A bridge is a dental prosthesis that serves as a support for the teeth, tooth roots or dental implants. The term bridge stems from their function of bridging missing teeth. Another important task of the bridge is to prevent adjacent teeth from shifting into the gap. At the dental practices of CASA DENTALIS in Berlin, we offer our patients the highest level of modern, quality dental crowns.

Authenticity: A crown / bridge is perceived both visually and functionally as a natural tooth. The chewing and speaking functions of your teeth are retained by a crown / bridge from CASA DENTALIS, whereas no visual changes are to be observed.
The solid cementation of the dentures invalidate their incorrect usage.

If you have any questions about “Fixed dentures”, you can contact your Berlin dental team from CASA DENTALIS at any of our locations in Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf or Steglitz-Zehlendorf.

In order to create a precisely fitting denture, an impression of the jaw must first be taken by your dentist. For this purpose, the teeth are carefully ground down at  our dental practice. Around 60% of the hard substance of the tooth is removed.

Based on this impression, the CASA DENTALIS dental laboratory creates your crown / bridge. In the meantime, a temporary restoration replaces the crown / bridge to protect the tooth.

Finally, the finished crown / bridge is cemented onto the polished teeth.

In most cases, the treatment at CASA DENTALIS is carried out under local anesthesia.

Although the longevity of crowns / bridges can be maintained with good oral hygiene, they may eventually loosen. For this reason, it is important to visit our specialists at CASA DENTALIS, your dentists for dentures in Berlin Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf or Steglitz-Zehlendorf, twice a year for a check-up.

Removable dentures

If your dentist from Berlin at CASA DENTALIS is no longer able to fit a bridge or crown, for example because there is insufficient tooth substance left for anchoring,  the so-called prostheses are used. Here at CASA DENTALIS we differentiate between a partial denture and a full denture.

A partial denture is used when there are still a few natural teeth left that can be used, for example, to attach the denture. Depending on the type of anchorage, there are different types of partial dentures. Your dentist will use a full denture if all teeth in the denture have to be replaced.

Partial plastic prosthesis

The plastic partial denture is attached to the teeth by your dentist using prefabricated retaining and support elements. This type of prosthesis causes long-term damage to the tooth bed because it is pressed into the gums the chewing mechanisms are active. For this reason, your dentist at CASA DENTALIS uses this type of prosthesis only as temporary,  provisional prosthesis.

Model cast prosthesis

The model cast prosthesis is attached to the remaining teeth with clips and is made of a non-precious metal alloy. Although, it may be very easy to put them on or remove them,  they are  still noticeable when laughing or talking.

What is a full denture?

A full denture consists of two parts: the replacement teeth and a gum-colored plastic base that encloses the edentulous jaw when worn. Through various factors such as suction effects and the natural muscles, it adapts to the jaw and prevents the prosthesis from falling out.

Many patients feel ashamed that the prosthesis is noticeable and visible. At CASA DENTALIS, our experienced dentists in Berlin, work with the latest technologies in dentistry. This allows us to create your dentition, its functions and aesthetics including the color and shape as authentic as possible in Berlin.

Talk to us – your CASA DENTALIS dentist in Berlin will be happy to advise you at any of our locations in Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf and Steglitz-Zehlendorf, in order to provide you with dentures that meet your personal wishes and requirements. We strive to find the right solution for you, so that you can soon smile and live carefree again.

Our experienced dentists at CASA DENTALIS first discuss your individual wishes and needs and carry out an extensive examination at one of our locations in Berlin Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf or Steglitz-Zehlendorf.

Your dentist at CASA DENTALIS will then make an impression of the denture.To do this, we apply a special plastic to the teeth, which then solidifies in a few minutes with the mouth closed.

In our dental laboratory in Berlin, we produce your custom-fit prosthesis based on this impression. We, your dental team from CASA DENTALIS, work with the highest degree of precision and quality in order to guarantee our patients the best possible results.

When you put on your denture for the first time, it is highly possible that your speaking skills will be restricted. Many patients also feel that the prosthesis may be too large. However, this is quite normal and there is nothing to worry about. Your lips, tongue, and muscles usually take up to 30 days to get used to your prosthesis. If speaking is difficult for you at the beginning, our dentists Berlin at CASA DENTALIS recommend simple speaking exercises. Just read aloud. If you find that certain words are more difficult for you to pronounce,  repeat them as often as possible.

Irritation in the oral cavity, as well as gagging when inserted, is a normal reaction of your body to this “foreign object”. You get used to it within the first few week,  every day you  your new teeth will start feeling more and more natural. However, if your complaints persist after the first few weeks, please contact your dentist in Berlin at CASA DENTALIS. The denture may need to be adjusted by your Berlin dentist. Talk to us – we will be happy to help you at any time, because your well-being and satisfaction are our top priority.

Combined dentures

What are combined dentures?

The combined dentures from CASA DENTALIS are dentures that have a fixed and a removable part, for example, implants (connection) and some prostheses.

What is a telescopic prosthesis?

The telescopic prosthesis is a very high-quality denture due to it is authenticity and durability

The fixed part of the prosthesis consists of the so-called telescopic crowns. These consist of a primary crown (inner telescope) made of metal on the prepared tooth and a second removable crown (outer telescope). The denture is incorporated into the second crown by your dentist. It can therefore be removed at any time.

What is a precisional attachment?

With the precisional attachment, our dentists attach the crowns to the teeth that border the gap. In addition, attachments are fit to both the tooth crown and the prosthesis. If the prosthesis is inserted, the two parts of the attachment are pushed firmly onto each other.

What is a bar prosthesis?

The bar prosthesis most often replaces the four lower incisors. For this purpose, the canine teeth are supplied with crowns by our experts for dentures and connected with a fixed bar on which the prosthesis can snap when inserted.
