(a) Non removable (fixed) prosthodontics
Crowns (caps) are dental restorations that are placed over a tooth when conservative restorations are insufficient to restore form and function. Dental bridges serve to replace missing teeth. At Smalto Dental Clinic, we offer porcelain fused-to-metal crowns and bridges, as well as all-ceramic ones. They both allow for excellent aesthetic results in front and posterior teeth.

Full mouth rehabilitation
Full mouth rehabilitations are probably the most difficult dental cases to manage. They involve not only the replacement of lost tooth structure but also the restoration of lost vertical dimensions. Multiple tooth loss, excessive wear from grinding or severe breakage may require a full mouth restoration. Replacing missing teeth will correct other related problems such as loss of lip support and distorted facial contours which affect one’s appearance and create difficulties in both speaking and eating. Full mouth rehabilitation may involve implants, crowns or dental bridges, composite restorations and, if necessary, gum treatment.

(b) Removable prosthodontics
These include partial or complete dentures. Removable partial dentures are prostheses that can be attached to existing teeth or implants. At Smalto Dental Clinic, we use modern materials in order to accomplish the best aesthetic and functional results. Options range from telescopic attachments, tooth-born attachments, implant over-dentures, or prostheses on dental implants. However, in line with the current trend in modern dentistry, we strongly encourage the use of fixed prosthetics on implants instead of removable partial dentures.
