Dental Prosthesis

(Also called as Artificial Teeth, Fake Teeth and False Teeth)

A dental prosthesis is an artificial tooth that replaces a missing tooth, a broken tooth, or an infected tooth. A dental prosthesis (artificial tooth) can be fixed or removable.

A fixed dental prosthesis (dental implant, dental bridge, tooth crown, dental veneers) is permanently fixed in the mouth, while a removable dental prosthesis (denture) has to be removed and cleaned daily.

Denture

A fixed dental prosthesis is better and stronger than a removable dental prosthesis. But it is more expensive.

Equipment Used to Make Tooth Crowns, Veneers, Dental Bridge

CAD / CAM Machine

Equipment

A CAD / CAM (Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing) machine is used to manufacture tooth crown, veneers, lumineers and dental bridge from zirconia (ceramic) material. This machine has high accuracy and is completely automatic.

Intraoral Scanner

An intraoral scanner takes a 3D image of the mouth. This 3D image is directly sent to the CAD / CAM machine that makes tooth crown, veneers, lumineers and dental bridge from zirconia (ceramic) material, that fits perfectly on the tooth.
