A dental bridge is created from multiple units or crowns merged into a single unit.
Bridges are commonly used when teeth in dental arch should be replaced or some teeth are very weak which means the others need to carry them. In order for the dentist to assess this situation and propose making the bridge, it is necessary to come in for an examination during which detailed diagnostics is performed and after this, the doctor can suggest to the patient what the best solution would be.Ask the doctor
In Dental center Štimac we use the latest technology and methods for making dental bridges, and the dental laboratory in the polyclinic itself accelerates the process of creation and allows faster modifications if they are necessary.
Bridges are a fixed prosthetic replacement and are made in situations when the patient suffers from one or more missing teeth but at the same time has a number of teeth which can be carriers and support the entire bridge. Bridges, as well as dental crowns, are made in our dental laboratory.
In Dental center Štimac, bridges are made of the same material as the crown since a bridge is made of more members or a greater number of crowns.
Material for creating bridges are:
- Non-metal ceramic (zircon, e-max and empress)
Metal-ceramic bridges represent the type of prosthetic work where ceramics is connected with a metal base and today such crowns and bridges are standard in dental prosthetics because of their reasonable prices, excellent properties such as strength and durability and a solid aesthetic component. The metal base provides stability and strength to the teeth and ceramics imitate the shape and color of teeth.
Bridges made entirely of ceramic represent the best solution for perfect aesthetics of teeth. Completely ceramic or zirconium bridges with their color, translucency, and transparency (way of deflecting and reflecting light) validate all optical characteristics of real teeth, resulting in a bridge that cannot be distinguished from the natural teeth. E-max and Empress ceramics which is used in the frontal (front) regions have a strength three times greater than tooth enamel so the possibility of such bridges cracking is minimal.
Metal-ceramic and full ceramic (zircon) bridges, equally functionally meet the needs of patients, but if the patient desires aesthetic perfection, then the best choice is a non-metal, zircon bridge that meets the highest standards when it comes to the aesthetic dentistry.
Thanks to today's achievements in dentistry, fixed work is possible in toothless jaws.
By installing four or six implants in one toothless jaw, it is possible to create a fixed work or a fixed bridge of 10 or 12 pieces (crowns) where the patient is given a full sense of naturalness and functionality of natural teeth and can normally eat and drink after the work is completed.
Great thanks to Dr. Štimac and her team! A wonderful person, a beautiful smile and kind and ready to listen and give honest advice to what is the best and most long-term option for her patients! I had to replace my old bridges a year ago and I was at the first annual control since the work was done and I cannot describe how happy I was with their work! All recommendations to her and her team.
I am registered with the doctor through national health insurance but I had larger work done in the same office. Very professional! She is ready to answer any of my questions which is actually the reason I have been going only to her for years. I had problems with my teeth and was forced to have a fixed bridge placed in order to protect my teeth and the job was done perfectly. Three years have passed since then and a few days ago I had a control examination and I have absolutely no objections whatsoever! All thanks to the doctor and her team.
