They do not only restore teeth but also strengthens them. Good option for restoration of teeth wear, chipped teeth or teeth damaged by caries.

Long functioning time
Important facts about dental crowns
A dental crown can only be placed on a healthy and strong root of the tooth; otherwise (or if the root is not present) dental implant is necessary. Patient has two options – Zirconia or metal ceramics crowns. Zirconia will ensure high-quality aesthetics and will also prevent electric-galvanic connection between metals and the human body.
However, dental crowns require preparation of the tooth, which could vary from almost none to significant loss of healthy tooth tissue. Also when preparing for bridge prostheses, healthy teeth on both sides of defect have to be prepared for covering with dental crowns, which also means that there will be some level of healthy tooth tissue loss.
How does the procedure go?
During the consultation, x-ray pictures are taken, the condition of tooth or root is evaluated and suitability for a dental crown is determined. Then therapeutic and endodontic (root canal) treatment is provided if necessary. When teeth are ready for prosthetic treatment, dental impressions are taken – they will be used for the production of dental crowns or other kinds of fixed or removable prostheses. Lastly, when the prosthesis is ready, it is checked for any kind of flaws and then given to the patient.
How much does the prosthetic treatment cost?
Price of the service always plays an important role when choosing the treatment plan. It is important for every patient. However, the price is very different and depends on individual case. Preliminary prices are available at our site’s pricing list, whilst more accurate prices will be available during the consultation.
How to prepare for the procedure?
Prosthetic treatment does not require any special preparation. Firstly, the patient has to make an appointment for a consultation, then the status of oral health will be determined and the dentist will offer a treatment plan.
When a friend of mine told me he had travelled to Kaunas to fix his teeth, I was kind of sceptical about it. His main motivation was that it is way cheaper than in Germany. When I got serious issues with my teeth that my german insurance was not willing to cover and counted me an estimated "infinity" for my procedures i started really thinking about doing the same. So, after a short Email correspondency with the clinics administrator, Ieva, i decided to give it a chance. I got very cheap flights to Vilnius (70 € there and back to Berlin), Getting to Kaunas was just about a 1 h train trip. Very easy and comfortable. I stayed in a lovely hotel. The personell in the PROCESSUS clinic was very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
I found out that german doctors had given me diagnoses that weren't even there to make more money of me.
Dr. Baltrusaitiene showed me exactly what is she about to do and why. With the help of a 3D-X-Ray of my jaw, before she started her work. The procedure was as pleasant and as painless as possible. Afterwards I had gotten clear advices on what i could do and what not. When I saw the price at the end I was positively surprised. It was almost 3 times less than what i would have paid in Germany. Also I feel like a person now. Not living in pain everyday anymore. All in all i can only recommend visiting PROCESSUS.
Competent and friendly personell, the most modern appliances and a fair price is definitely worth travelling europe for your health. 5/5 Stars, Well done!
