We understand that a visit to the dentist can sometimes seem intimidating and become stressful. But it’s not really worth worrying about. We work with the latest equipment and technology to ensure the best quality of results, while protecting You from discomfort and pain as much as possible.
IMPORTANT! We follow the principles of proper prosthetics. First of all, during a detailed consultation and interview, we find out Your expectations and wishes, and then we produce a project of future functional teeth that meets this vision.
A dental project is like a visualization of what Your new smile would look like. It can be adjusted until You finally decide that the aesthetic image is great. What is more, an orthopedic dentist can try this dental project on Your teeth without grinding them. This way You can try Your future smile. Only when You are completely satisfied with the future dental project does the dental prosthesis itself begin.
This precise planning of the prosthetic work allows You to feel at ease knowing what the end result will be.
Our clinic’s doctors can offer a wide range of prosthetic services. To help, we not only provide micro-prosthetic services that can restore impeccable dental aesthetics, but also solve extremely complex problems by restoring the functions of chewing or speech.
Dental prosthesis is the restoration of tooth tissue and occlusion.
Dental restoration methods used for prosthetics:
Metal-free ceramics, “E. max” veneers.
- zirconium ceramic crowns;
- zirconium ceramic crowns on implants;
- Cermet crowns.
- Complete dentures – a full-arch restoration on 4 or more implants;
- removable dentures.
Materials used in our clinic for prosthetics:
- zirconia ceramics,
- ,,E. max“ glass ceramics.
Zirconium oxide ceramics is a high-class option of prosthetic material that has been used for many years in the production of joints, teeth and other prostheses. It is found in the earth, in the form of the mineral badelite. This substance is biologically inert, so the body accepts it as natural, its own.
Advantages of zirconium ceramic prostheses:
- extremely strong,
- wear resistant,
- characterized by bio-inertness,
- helps to restore the natural anatomical shape of the tooth,
- resistant to high chewing loads,
- requires less grinding of hard tissues,
- has no gray line on the edge of the gums,
- does not cause gingivitis,
- suitable for both anterior and molar prosthetics,
- perfect for the production of crowns on implants,
- has excellent aesthetic qualities,
- does not cause allergies,
- ensures adequate retention of the prosthesis.
Aesthetic prosthetics with “E. max” pressed ceramics
These pressed ceramics are several times stronger than metal or purely ceramic crowns. ‘E. max’ ceramic materials have outstanding physical and chemical properties – resistance to wear, reaction to temperature changes, etc. Prosthetics with this crown type boast exceptional aesthetics and precision.
Advantages of “E. max” ceramics:
- long-lasting aesthetics;
- accuracy of restoration;
- excellent aesthetic properties;
- longevity of restorations;
- suitable for restoring individual teeth;
- plaque does not stick;
- biocompatibility – no side effects in the oral cavity;
- greater resistance to fractures;
- the color and shine do not change over time.
Important to know
Having our own laboratory of dental technicians allows us to guarantee the highest quality and aesthetic appeal of dental prosthetics.
What are dental prostheses?
If one or more teeth are lost or the tooth has broken off, there are two treatment methods to restore the chewing function and aesthetic appearance - dental implantation and prosthetics. If You choose a prosthetic method, Your doctor may offer a removable prosthesis (plate) or a fixed prosthesis (bridge).
Fixed dentures are attached to the remaining teeth or implants. Removable dentures (plates) are usually offered when some teeth are lost or when it is not possible to fix the dentures on existing teeth or implants.
How do I know if I need dental prosthesis?
Only a dentist can advise and assess the need for prosthetics. If the tooth is deeply damaged by caries, the root canals were previously treated, the remaining walls of the tooth are thin or partial, as well as other common causes, You may need a dental crown to restore the tooth anatomy.
What is a dental crown?
It is a specific tooth casing created in the clinic to replicate the damaged part of Your tooth. Dental crowns are sometimes called dental crowns or shells - because an artificial shell is placed on the visible part of the tooth like a crown. If several teeth are restored at the same time, this is the so-called "dental bridge".
How thick are dental crowns?
The thickness of the dental crowns on the lateral surfaces ranges from 0.1 to 1.5 mm, and on the chewing surface is about 1.5 mm.
When are dental crowns used for prosthetics?
Whenever there is a need to restore a broken-off tooth, that is, when there is a remaining healthy part of tooth. Also - when You want to mask tooth discoloration (for example, due to caries). Veneers or dental fillings can sometimes be used to restore a tooth.
Crowns are usually placed after injuries, due to age-related tooth decay, tooth extraction, or when the teeth have been used for improper purposes (such as opening bottle caps). During the procedure, the dentist tries to preserve as much of the remaining tooth and tooth roots as possible.
How are dental crowns attached?
Artificial shell or crown is cemented to a slightly polished remaining tooth. It is given a natural shape for chewing and smiling. This crown placement procedure is usually performed on permanent teeth, but in rare cases can also be performed on deciduous teeth if a tooth defect interferes with, for example, singing.
What are the types of dental crowns?
Dental crowns are divided into partial and full. As the name suggests, partial crowns or dental crowns are attached to individual defective teeth. The so-called micro-prosthesis allows to restore the hard tissues of the tooth, chewing function and aesthetic appearance.
The crowns are stronger, harder, more resistant to wear and tear and more durable than conventional seals. After the procedure, the color and overall appearance of the mouth will be no different from natural teeth.
Full dental crowns are attached to the treated individual tooth or its preserved part. If the tooth was not treated properly, it could continue to decay inside, so a repeat procedure would be needed.
What materials are dental crowns made of?
Dental crowns can be made of porcelain, gold, cermet, zirconium oxide with ceramic coating. The latter material is the most advanced, extremely strong and suitable for teeth with the highest chewing load. Gold crowns are becoming obsolete because they do not give the desired natural look.

Will the dental crowns be different from the color of my natural teeth, or will I feel them chewing?
When choosing materials, the dentist will adapt the color, design the crowns so that they have a natural look. Depending on which tooth the crown is for, an appropriate relief will be created. So after 1-3 days You should not feel any discomfort when chewing. By choosing a porcelain coating or zirconium oxide with a ceramic coating, it will be impossible to determine from appearance which teeth are real and which are with a crown.
What is the difference between a dental crown, a full dental crown and a dental bridge?
A dental crown or crown is a method of prosthetics where not all teeth are covered with a tooth replacement. A full dental crown covers the entire tooth, ie there is no natural tooth in the visible part. Dental bridges are a restoration technique in which several dental crowns are connected in succession instead of several broken and sometimes lost teeth. Sometimes such a procedure is called a simple denture.
If You have a lot of worn teeth (such as chews), a dental bridge is recommended. The price will depend on how many teeth will need to be covered with artificial material. In order for the dental bridge to be stable, it is necessary to preserve as many of Your own teeth or parts of the teeth as possible.
Jei turite daug nusidėvėjusių dantų (pvz., kramtomųjų), rekomenduojamas dantų tiltas. Kaina priklausys nuo to, kiek dantų reikės padengti dirbtine medžiaga. Norint, kad dantų tiltas stabiliai laikytųsi, būtina išsaugoti kuo daugiau nuosavų dantų ar dantų dalių.
