Zähnebleichen hat an Popularität gewonnen, zumal der Markt jetzt auch Produkte für die schnelle Anwendung zuhause bietet. Wer seine Zähne selbst aufhellen will, sollte jedoch nicht auf den Rat des Fachmannes verzichten. Ein zu sorgloser Gebrauch der Bleichmittel kann nämlich nicht nur zu Schönheitsfehlern führen, sondern auch Zähne und Zahnfleisch nachhaltig angreifen.

Methoden, die Zähne aufzuhellen, gibt es viele. Dazu gehören Verfahren, die nur der Zahnarzt vornehmen kann, solche, die der Zahnarzt vorbereitet und der Patient zuhause fortführt und diejenigen, die jeder alleine zuhause anwenden kann. Bei allen Verfahren wirkt ein Bleichmittel auf die Zähne ein und lässt sie heller werden. Die im Handel frei erhältlichen Mittel besitzen eine geringere Wirkstoffkonzentration als diejenigen, die der Zahnarzt anwendet. Dennoch ist ihr Einsatz nicht unproblematisch und sollte vorher mit dem Zahnarzt abgeklärt werden.

Restorative Dentistry

Tooth reconstruction – measures for tooth preservation

Restorative measures are an important part of tooth preservation. The aim of tooth restoration is to preserve the patient’s own tooth with its natural root. When the tooth is restored, the defective areas are repaired. Thus, the original function of the tooth can be restored. Which also leads to a better quality of life again.

Restorative Dentistry is all measures to preserve the tooth in its form and function.

If a tooth is defective, it should be repaired as soon as possible. Conservative measures preserve the function and shape of the teeth. Plaque, caries and / or periodontitis can cause diseases or damage to the tooth substance.

Dental Restoration measures in our Dental Clinic are:

  • Fillings
  • Pin abutments
  • Inlays & crowns

Tooth preservation through restoration

Dental Restoration is always necessary when defects in the crown of the tooth need to be repaired. This is the only way to prevent the progression of tooth damage and to reconstruct the function of the tooth.

 

Defects in the crown area can be caused by:

  • Caries (in the fissures, interdental spaces, neck of the tooth, …)
  • Periodontitis (gum disease)
  • Erosions (loss of enamel due to acids, medication, …)
  • Tooth wear (due to pressing, grinding, brushing defects, …)
  • Lost Dental Restorations (fillings, inlays, posts and crowns)

When it comes to restorative tooth preservation, there are many options in modern dentistry to restore the defects in the dental crown area to form and function. Our focus is always minimally invasive dental treatment to leave the healthy tooth substance in place. This way, the healthy tooth substance can continue to be used to stabilise the tooth.

Restoration with high-quality fillings

Advanced dental technology has developed materials that offer high-quality aesthetics, stability and durability. The high-quality filling materials enable minimally invasive therapy. This means that defects in the tooth substance can be removed without damaging the tooth.

Specially developed adhesives are applied to the tooth substance for this purpose. This allows the filling material to adhere to the tooth surface without the need for time-consuming grinding of the cavity into shape.

High-quality fillings have a lifespan of many years with good oral hygiene. In contrast to simple cement or plastic fillings, this has the advantage that tooth substance is also preserved. Another advantage is that these fillings can be loaded immediately.

Dental Restoration with Pin Abutments

Pin abutments become necessary when the tooth defects have progressed so far that the natural tooth crown is largely or completely missing. With the help of posts, a durable connection between the root and the tooth crown can be constructed.

Parapulpal posts

If a tooth is vital and still has enough tooth structure, parapulpal posts can also be used. These posts are then anchored around the pulp cavity to stabilise a filling.

Root posts

Root posts are posts that are anchored directly into the root. Such posts are used for root-treated teeth.

The root posts are made of different materials, such as titanium, zirconium, glass fibre… The appropriate pre-drill provides the optimal space so that the post gets a good hold in the tooth root. With a special bonding agent, the root post is then firmly inserted.

High-quality root posts have a good bending elasticity, which corresponds to the natural tooth. In this way, the naturally occurring forces and tensions of the tooth crown and root can be balanced out.

An abutment is placed on the post and then a dental crown is made in the dental laboratory to completely restore the function and shape of the tooth. This restorative measure is also considered a minimally invasive treatment method, as the only alternative would be tooth removal.

Restoration with ceramic inlays and crowns

Inlays are an alternative to fillings. Where fillings can no longer hold up due to the size of the defect, inlays are the alternative. Inlays have the advantage of higher pressure stability in case of strong chewing loads in the posterior region.

However, if tooth defects are so large that a filling or even an inlay is no longer sufficient, the tooth is restored with a partial crown or crown. In this way, the function and shape of the tooth can be restored to ensure stable and strong chewing or biting in the long term.

The aim is to reconstruct the function of the chewing plane and the bite position of the natural dentition. Aesthetics are also taken into account in order to make the denture look naturally beautiful and unobtrusive for the individual patient. This is especially important in the anterior region.

Larger tooth defects can be restored with inlays and crowns as long as there is enough healthy tooth substance. The restoration of missing teeth is achieved by making and fitting dentures.

The aim of a dental prosthesis is to restore the aesthetics and function of the natural dentition. Each dental prosthesis is a custom-made dental prosthesis made only for the respective patient.
