What are dentures?
If it happens that you lose a tooth or it is really not possible for your dentist to keep one of your natural teeth, you will need a tooth replacement in Berlin. As the name suggests, this is all types of replacement of natural teeth.
You are not alone! After the fourth German Oral Health Study, every adult is missing 2.7 teeth.
Due to this high demand, a large number of different techniques for tooth replacement have already been developed.
What are the types of dentures?
- Fixed dentures
- Removable dentures
- Combined denture
The procedure begins with the removal of a thin layer of enamel by your dentist. Then an impression is taken of the tooth so that a custom-fit veneer can be created by one of our Berlin dental technicians. Finally, the veneer is bonded to the tooth using a special adhesive.
Your dentists at CASA DENTALIS in Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf and Steglitz-Zehlendorf offer you two types of veneers: Prep veneers and non-prep veneers. With the latter, the veneer can be bonded directly to the tooth – without prior removal of enamel.

A dental crown is actually the part of the natural tooth that protrudes from the gum and is therefore visible. In colloquial usage, however, the term crown is most often used for the artificial replacement of this very natural tooth crown.
What are dental crowns?
In the non-visible range: metal alloys with a high gold or platinum content.
In the visible area: ceramic or all-ceramic veneers (for highly allergic patients).
Your local dentists at CASA DENTALIS will be happy to advise you on the type of material that can be used for your individual crown. Simply come to one of our locations in Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf or Steglitz-Zehlendorf or contact us by phone.
Naturalness: A crown/bridge is perceived as a natural tooth both visually and functionally. The chewing and speaking function of your teeth is retained by a crown/bridge from CASA DENTALIS and no changes are visually apparent.
The fixed cementation of the denture additionally excludes the possibility of incorrect use.
Although the crowns/bridges promise a long durability with good oral hygiene, it can happen that they become loose. For this reason, it is important to visit our specialists at CASA DENTALIS, your dentists for tooth replacement in Berlin, twice a year in Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf or Steglitz-Zehlendorf, for a checkup and prophylaxis.

If it is no longer possible for your dentist from CASA DENTALIS in Berlin to attach a bridge or crown because, for example, there is not enough tooth substance left for an anchorage, so-called prostheses are used. Here at CASA DENTALIS we distinguish between a Partial prosthesis and a full prosthesis.
Partial denturesInterim prosthesis The plastic partial denture is attached to the teeth by your dentist using prefabricated retaining and support elements. This type of denture causes damage to the tooth bed in the longer term, as it is pressed into the gums by chewing. For this reason, your dentist at CASA DENTALIS uses this type of denture exclusively as a temporary, provisional denture. Model casting prosthesis The cast model denture is attached to the remaining teeth by clasps and is made of a non-precious metal alloy. It is very easy to insert and remove, but may be noticeable when laughing or talking (depending on which teeth the clasps are attached to).
What is a full denture?
A full denture consists of two parts: the replacement teeth, and a gum-colored acrylic base that encloses the edentulous jaw when worn. Due to various influences such as suction effects and the natural musculature, this adapts to the jaw and prevents the denture from falling out.
Many patients fear that the denture will be noticeable and visible. At CASA DENTALIS, our experienced dentists in Berlin work with the most modern technology in dentistry. As a result, we have many options available to us in Berlin to faithfully reproduce your dentures as well as their function and aesthetics in color and shape.
