In many cases of different prosthetic methods, the biggest drawback of such procedures – tooth grinding – is unavoidable. The amount of tooth grinding depends on the choice of prosthetic materials, their strength and mechanical properties. The more material is necessary to ensure reliability of the restoration, the more tooth tissues need to be removed. Thankfully, there are new techniques. These days, minimally invasive preparation techniques are often used to grind the teeth as little as possible, and some times even not touch the tooth at all. Using this technique very thin all-ceramic restorations are manufactured and later on fixed to the teeth – they are very durable, ensure excellent aesthetics and conservation of tooth structure. All-ceramic restorations may be made from different types of ceramic: glass, feldspathic ceramics, etc. The type of ceramic also determines its properties, such as translucency and resistance. The most translucent (and aesthetic) ceramic is feldspathic; glass ceramic is not as translucent, but it is more durable. We recommend a thorough examination and digital smile design before any aesthetic restorative procedures. Advanced digital technology is used for these tasks.
We at ProDentum clinic always strive for the best results, therefore we specialize in manufacture of all-ceramic restorations.
To help patients picture the final result and evaluate it, before aesthetic restorations, the planned restorations are shaped digitally and the shape is transferred into the mouth. To make the predicted result as precise as possible, we use digital technologies to plan the treatment virtually.
Sometimes to create an attractive smile, tooth treatment alone is not enough. Incisal edge line, smile height, lip to tooth ratio and other facial parameters are closely linked to tooth aesthetics, therefore aesthetic restorative procedures sometimes require additional orthodontic treatment, corrective gum surgery, etc. All procedures necessary for a perfect smile are planned and discussed during the first consultation visit. Thanks to digital technology, the visual information is easy to understand, so that the patient and the dental team know exactly what needs to be done to create a beautiful smile.
Tooth and smile analysis, treatment planning and other examinations are performed by our prosthodontists.

Other recommended treatments
The ProDentum clinic has a wide range of services and provides patients with the highest level of professionalism.
TFW protocol includes digital and analog technology used for everything from diagnostic imaging, implant planning to final restoration using special devices for measuring accuracy.
Implant placement using dynamic navigation
Dental implant placement is a surgical procedure where high precision is of greatest importance. Extra-precise dental implant positioning has a lower risk of complications, and occasionally allows us to avoid bone augmentation.
Often large scale tooth crown defects cannot be restored using fillings. In these cases, inlays, onlays or crowns may be used to restore damaged teeth.
Fillings help to remove damage caused by tooth decay. The cause of this damage is plaque.

The goal of orthodontic treatment is an effective correction of improper bite. During treatment, tooth and whole arch anomalies are corrected.
A child’s first encounter with a dentist should be after the first primary tooth has erupted, when it is generally recommended to bring a child for a check-up.
Sinus lift surgery
During the maxillary sinus lift surgery, sinus mucosa is lifted, then protected using a special membrane, and the sinus floor is filled using bone substitute.
Professional tooth cleaning
During the procedure ultrasonic, manual and rotary instruments are used to clean mineralized plaque (calculus) and to polish tooth surfaces.
Digital smile design
It is great that today dentistry can use digital technology and visualization to provide an approximate image of the planned result.
Sports mouth guards
Sports and injuries go hand to hand. Injuries of the face and teeth are some of the most traumatizing.
Tests and consultations
The goal of all consultations in the ProDentum clinic is to create the most detailed treatment plan which is acceptable in all aspects, taking in consideration patient's general health and the condition of the masticatory system, patient's complaints, financial ability and preferences.
