Dentures at Zahnpoint Mainz
- natural in function and aesthetics
Aesthetic problems and tooth defects often go hand in hand. A chipped edge or an old filling not only looks unattractive, but also makes your tooth susceptible to further damage. And quality of life also suffers as gaps between the teeth or poorly fitting or constantly falling out dentures impair communication with other people.
Unfortunately, teeth cannot always be preserved. If you have lost teeth, we will provide you with high-quality dentures at Zahnpoint Mainz. Modern dentistry offers a variety of solutions for achieving optimal chewing function and good pronunciation when there are gaps between the teeth or when the teeth are severely damaged. Together with you, we will develop the right denture solution individually tailored to your needs. These include crowns, bridges, telescopic bridges, crowns on toothimplants and dentures. If an adjustment of the bite is necessary, this is done using functional analysis and/or functional therapy and, if necessary, in consultation with an orthodontist or physiotherapist.

Metal-free aesthetic dentures
made of high-performance ceramic zirconium oxide
Today, full ceramic dentures offer the highest level of aesthetics. In the past, conventional crowns and bridges were usually constructed as a combination of metal base framework and ceramic veneer. With zirconium oxide, we have a high-tech ceramic available which, while being completely metal-free, can still withstand the same stresses as conventional restorations made of alloys and has a long life.
Zirconium oxide is a ceramic material that originally comes from space research. The material, which is used as a heat shield in the space shuttle, is also used for brake discs and has been used for years in the production of artificial hip joints.
Zirconium oxide full ceramic is so similar to the hard tooth substance in terms of its properties that it can hardly be distinguished from natural teeth. It is an excellent alternative to crowns and bridges made of metal ceramics. Metal-ceramic dentures, or veneering metal-ceramics, are made of a metal framework that is veneered with ceramic. With full ceramic crowns and bridges, the substructure is also made of ceramic, which means that there is no risk of allergic reactions or metal edges. We can also use it to make removable dentures completely metal-free.
As the gums are optimally bonded to the restoration, full ceramics not only meet the highest aesthetic requirements, but also have oral hygiene advantages over metal. The extremely smooth surface of the ceramic prevents bacteria and food residues (coffee, tea, red wine) from adhering.
