In which cases fixed dental prostheses are recommended?
This treatment is indicated for patients with the following dental diseases:
Broken teeth that need to be repaired
To replace missing teeth.
Strengthening a tooth that has been weakened or broken.
To strengthen teeth with very large composite restorations.
To provide stability and functionality to the bite.
Aesthetically, you can fix permanent stains.
If you are in any of these situations ask for your first free medical visit for a review of the teeth and to detect if it is necessary to place a fixed prosthesis to restore function and dental aesthetics.

The placement of fixed prosthodontics involves a series of steps to be performed in the clinic
1. Carving the tooth to make room for the crown, taking measurements and placement of a temporary prosthesis
2. One week after a test of the metal core or the zirconium or aluminum oxide core is performed and 7 days later the color is tested (in the case of metal ceramic)
