Dental prosthetics

It is intended to appear and function just as a natural tooth would, and it solves a problem of lost teeth.

A beautiful natural smile today is a must, and new materials and techniques enable high quality and performance of modern prosthetics.

CAD/CAM – computer design is an advanced technology which we use at Zara Dental Centre on daily basis. By using CAD/CAM, we are able to produce perfectly shaped prosthetics.

CAD/CAM enables creative design and very precise construction of prosthetic work (inlay, onlay, veneers, crowns and bridges)

1. Aesthetic veneers

Aesthetic veneers are one of the most popular aesthetic corrections. They represent superior aesthetic therapy with a natural and beautiful smile as a main goal.


Veneers are the least invasive prosthetic solutions that covers the aesthetic defects on the front of the teeth, with minimal or no preparation at all. They are made of full ceramics or composites. Most often it’s ceramic, because it is strong enough, stable and has a natural appearance.

Ceramic veneers are thin "leafs" of ceramics attached to the front surface of the tooth. Depending on the necessity of correction, some teeth do not need to be abraded (non prep venneers) or the front of the tooth surface is minimally abraded

Veneers – before and after

Who is a perfect candidate for dental veneers? Anyone with healthy teeth and good oral hygene, who wishes to have a more appealing smile, hide the imperfections, crooked position or teeth color, wide gap between teeth etc.

*The difference between the ceramic crown and the veneer is that the veneer has only the front tooth surface abraded.

2. Ceramical crowns and bridges

Ceramical crowns and bridges ideal solution in prosthetics which mimic look, feel and function of natural teeth.

Cearmic bridges are made when teeth are extremely damaged (fractured, teeth with RCT, etc), when aesthetics aren’t up to standard (large gaps, change in color), or when many teeth are missing

Modern materials and technology enable natural appearance and longevity of ceramical crowns and bridges

Ceramical crowns – natural look, longevity and firmness

Today, crowns and bridges are most commonly made from three materials:

Glass ceramics

Zirconium ceramics

Metal ceramics

The decision which material to use for the creation of ceramic crowns and bridges depends on current state of the tooth (teeth), as well as on aesthetics and function required.

Integral ceramics (Emax, Empress)

Integral ceramics (Emax, Empress) is used in making first-class aesthetic crowns. Due to its transparency and homogenious structure, it is no different than a natural tooth.

They are used mostly when high level of aesthetics is required (front teeth)


Zirconium ceramics

Zirconium ceramics is currently the toughest aesthetic (completely white) material. Its characateristics include extreme firmness, biocompability (no chance of allergic reactions) and beautifl aesthetical appeal.

Zirconium base under ceramics is white and it reflects light similar to natural tooth. It can be applied in all regions of the jaw.


Metal ceramics

Metal ceramics is exceptionaly firm and elastic material, however it does not satisfy all aesthetic criteria, since it isn’t transparent.

Today, it is mostly used in the back region of the jaw

3. Dental prosthesis

Zubne proteze

Dentures / dental prosthesis is a substitute for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. There are two types available – complete and partial prosthesis
