BONDING

We mention bonding a lot in many of our procedures. All white fillings, veneers, CEREC restorations and some crowns are bonded into place. This is in contrast to cementing crowns and onlays. In cementation placement we are relying on the retentive factors built into the restoration and the adhesive properties of the cement. With bonding we are relying on a chemical adhesion of restoration to the underlying tooth structure.

 

 

 

IMPLANTS

Implants are artificial roots to support a crown, a fixed bridge or an overlying denture. They are made of titanium. After placement several months are required for the implants to fuse with the surrounding bone (osseointegration). After this waiting period the new roots are able to support a restoration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CROWNING

A crown (cap) is a restoration that completely surrounds and protects a tooth. It is used when there is an extensive filling, tooth fractures, on top of an implant, for esthetics, following a root canal procedure or to anchor a fixed bridge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CEREC RESTORATION

CEREC; CAD/CAM technology. Stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. With this technology we can offer an indirect tooth restoration such as full crowns, ¾ crowns, onlays and inlays made of solid porcelain, all in one appointment.
