FIXED HYBRID DENTURE
WHAT IS A FIXED HYBRID DENTURE?
The fixed hybrid denture is designed for patients missing all their teeth but, wanting something more similar to their natural teeth. A hybrid overdenture is a full denture (including prosthetic teeth and gum tissue) that completely covers the upper (maxillary) or lower (mandibular) alveolar ridge and is firmly anchored to the jawbone with dental implants. This type of denture can only be removed by a dentist. Along with possessing superior stability, hybrid dentures are less bulky than overdentures. The decrease in bulk allows more room for the tongue but at the same time provides less support for the lips.
“ WHAT SEPARATES DENTISTRY FROM ART IS THAT DENTISTRY IS MEANT TO BE… FUNCTIONAL”
The composite is not harmful to your teeth, it does not damage them. Normally the preparation of the teeth is minimally invasive, which means that the treatment is not agressive at all. Most of the times composite veneers strenghen the structure of your teeth.
Ceramic veneers are produced in a dental laboratory and then permanently cemented on the teeth in a clinic. It requires 4-5 appointments and meanwhile the patient wears provisional veneers. Normally it takes up to 1 month to get them done.
Ceramic is a very strong and very aesthetic material, but does not require more maintenance than your natural teeth. You need to have excellent oral hygiene and avoid biting veryy hard objects (for example bones). In case of chipping a porcelain veneer cannot be fixed, it has to be removed by drilling and a new veneer has to be placed. Normally porcelain veneers maintain the aesthetics and function up to 10-15 years or more.
This treatment requires comprehensive knowledge of dental aesthetics and oclusion, thourough analysis of the bite and accurate treatment plan. To ensure excellent results and durability of veneers we always recommend that it should be performed by highly specialized and experienced Dental Aesthetics Specialist.
The main pros are: excellent very natural looking aesthetics, long life span, durability, easy maintenance.
The main cons are: it is a more time and money consuming treatment. In case of fracture, a new veneer is necessary.
Due to its complex production porcelain veneers ar more expensive. Normally it costs around 300-400eur per tooth.
