We strongly advise our clients to make an initial appointment to draw up a treatment plan and a quote for the following treatments:
- Dental veneers
- Fixed prosthesis (crown, bridge)
Apart from dental veneers, which are not covered by basic or supplementary health insurance, fixed and removable prostheses may be reimbursed by your supplementary dental insurance.
This is why you can submit the estimate drawn up by the dentist to your insurance company to find out how much you will be reimbursed.
If the estimate is approved and you are happy with the amount you will be reimbursed, you can make an appointment with your dentist to begin treatment.
The latest major advance in dental care is the integration of digital technology into every stage of dental treatment. As part of our ongoing drive to make the latest technology available to our patients, our centre now offers an intra-oral scanning system.
The intra-oral 3D scanner creates a digital 3D image of your teeth, which the laboratory can then use to create your fixed dental prosthesis (veneers, crowns and bridges) by computer. A 3D scanner is accurate to within a few hundredths of a millimetre.
Undeniable comfort for the patient
A digital impression of the teeth, more accurate and faster than an impression taken with paste in the mouth.
- Saves time: session duration is reduced
- Greater comfort than a conventional impression > high-quality digital impressions*
- 3D computer design
*With digital impressions, health safety is reinforced.
If a tooth is missing or too damaged, it must be replaced or restored to give patients their smile back, but also to restore oral function and prevent tooth displacement. This is where prosthodontics is used to restore natural teeth or replace missing teeth with prostheses, bridges or crowns.
Full and partial dentures
Partial dentures can replace one or more teeth and are attached to adjacent healthy teeth using small hooks. Full dentures tend to be used to replace all natural teeth. Both types of prostheses are removable.
Crowns and bridges
Crowns are an aesthetically pleasing and proven restoration solution and are used to cover and protect damaged teeth, while bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Both treatments are permanently fixed in the mouth. They can be made of metals, porcelain or metal-ceramic alloys.
The Ixelles dental practice aims to give you access to the most recent technologies.
Fixed or removable prosthesis on dental implants
Two types of prostheses are placed on implants: fixed and removable. Fixed prostheses, such as crowns, are permanently placed on implants, while removable dentures must be removed when cleaning or sleeping.
The choice of one or the other is determined by several factors, which we will be pleased to discuss with you.
