In our consultations we do not only perform dental rehabilitation with implants, the aesthetic rehabilitation of natural teeth using ceramic crowns is also an important part of our clinical work.
These prostheses often have a metal skeleton that will eventually be covered with porcelain, which is why it is called metal-ceramic.
It has enormous advantages: resistance, durability and aesthetics that make it a very stable prosthesis.
These prostheses are designed to last more than ten years.
In this case the metallic structures and crowns are replaced by zirconium, which, being white and having translucency, allows us to obtain a natural and aesthetic result. Incomparable with respect to the original metallic prosthesis, also having a total biocompatibility.

Teeth whitening is currently one of the most requested dental procedures and increasingly considered part of the usual routine of care and beauty. Teeth whitening has become a mandatory requirement for those who want to show off a beautiful and really radiant smile.
The teeth can have an infinite variety of colors for different reasons, but basically the color of the teeth is determined genetically (that is, we are born with a certain color), which means that the color of the teeth is an innate characteristic like the color of the skin.
The color is given by the set of structures that constitute the teeth encased in the enamel which thickness, and quality, define the color.
The color changes can be by:
Stains inside the tooth
Stains by tetracycline
Stains by fluorine
– Primarily stains are caused by:
Tannins for tea, coffee, wine, nicotine, food coloring, etc.
