Prosthetic dentistry

Belldent offers a wide range of prosthetic services at the highest level. Prosthetic treatments focus on restoration and replacement of missing teeth or tooth parts. However, tooth loss is not just a matter of aesthetics, but also a practical issue. Patients are often not aware of the bite disorders the loss of teeth can lead to. Possible consequences can include, among others, tooth decay, excessive pathological wear of tooth surfaces, loosening of teeth and incorrect functioning of joints. Missing teeth have also a negative impact on neighbouring teeth. They become overworked and can deviate from their correct positions.

Depending on the degree of tooth tissue destruction, various methods of dental restoration are possible. Today’s dental prosthetics draws on the latest technological and material advances (such as implants, computer aided veneers and ceramic crowns) as well as tried and tested solutions, such as precious metals (gold and platinum). They are used, among others, for endodontic posts and metal-ceramic crowns. Before choosing any prosthetic treatment the patient needs to take care of their oral hygiene. This has a fundamental, decisive impact on achieving long lasting, high quality results.

In our Kraków and Katowice surgeries, our professional dentists specialising in prosthetics carry out reconstruction treatments using crowns, endodontic posts, bridges, dental implants, dentures and porcelain veneers. Our highly qualified staff and modern equipment ensure high quality dental prosthetics services and patient satisfaction. All prosthetic services are performed to the highest quality standards and carried out without delays.

We encourage you to familiarise yourself with our price list and the detailed list of prosthetic services that we offer.

Crowns – permanent restoration of parts of individual teeth

A crown restores the correct physiological shape of the tooth and its proper occlusal function. Fitting a crown prevents damage or breaking of a tooth or its root. Crowns are made of metal, metal veneered with ceramic or can be fully ceramic. In order to protect teeth that have undergone root canal treatment from fracture, they need to be further strengthened by cast metal or fibreglass posts.

Cast post and core

Cast post-and-cores are made of metal alloys (using precious or non-precious metals) and used for core build up.

Bridges – fixed replacements of one or several missing teeth

A dental bridge replaces missing teeth. It consists of prosthetic crowns fitted on the abutments to which replacement teeth (called ‘pontics’) are attached. In order to fit a bridge the dentist must file the abutment teeth to reduce them in size in order to be able to cement the bridge over them.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are cemented onto teeth in order to improve their shape and colour. The advantages of such veneers include impeccable aesthetics and minimising the loss of hard tissues of the tooth.

Dental prostheses

Removable dentures can be taken out from the mouth, while fixed dentures are fitted permanently.

  • Acrylic full dentures – used mainly in the case of toothlessness, large number of missing teeth and where the economic factor plays a major role.
  • Partial dentures – supported by the gums, alveolar mucosa and teeth. They can serve the patient for many years.
  • Overdentures – they fit well thanks to a system of clips connecting the denture with the roots or implants inside the patient’s mouth.
  • Nylon dentures – an excellent alternative to traditional acrylic dentures, with greatly improved fracture resistance. These dentures are thinner than the standard ones, fit better and do not cause allergic reactions. These properties make the nylon dentures more comfortable for patients and more aesthetically pleasing.
