All the information you need about fillings, inlays, crowns, bridges and prostheses

Losing or doing harm to your teeth due to small cavities and/or caries usually leads to a noticeable reduction in your quality of life. You may no longer be able to eat with pleasure, may feel insecure about your appearance, or suffer from pain.

For this reason, the RHEIN WEISS team will be happy to give you detailed advice about suitable dentures and the costs involved – so that you will soon be symptom-free again and can show off your beautiful teeth.


Smaller teeth defects are treated with fillings. In the posterior region as well as the visible teeth areas, we work with ceramic and plastic (composite) as filling materials. We only provide composite fillings. Inferior filling materials such as cement or amalgam do not meet our quality standards and are not offered by us for this reason. As a metal alloy, amalgam is a mixture of heavy metals that is difficult to degrade and represents a great burden for nature. For reasons of environmental protection and durability for our patients, our dental surgery in Mainz does not work with amalgam, nor with cement as a material for dental fillings.

Composite fillings are made of plastic with ceramic particles. This material can be used for all fillings on all tooth areas. Using composite fillings, your Mainz dentist will exactly replicate the appearance of your teeth in shape and colour. Even larger defects, such as broken teeth in the posterior region, can be rebuilt using natural composite fillings. The good durability of this type of partial denture is achieved through special curing under UV light.



Inlays are fillings that are made to fit precisely in our Mainz dental surgery’s dental laboratory and then bonded in place by our dental surgeon. Gold or ceramic inlays are available. Ceramic inlays, with their customised tooth colour, are visually and aesthetically most similar to the natural tooth. In our dental surgery in Mainz, you will receive custom-made inlays according to your wishes.

The treatment procedure for gold & ceramic inlays:

To make an inlay, an impression of the defective tooth is taken after the tooth has been prepared and forwarded to our dental laboratory to produce the inlay. Completing the inlay in the laboratory usually takes a few days. Until your ceramic or gold inlay is inserted, your tooth is thus sealed using a temporary filling.



Whether a defect in your natural teeth should be restored using an inlay or a dental filling is sufficient depends mainly on the degree of destruction of the tooth. The larger the defect, the more there is to be said for an inlay to ensure a long-lasting restoration. If you would like a comparison of the two solutions for your individual situation, visit our dental surgery and let your dentist advise you.

The costs for inlays are not covered by statutory health insurance. Health insurance companies only reimburse the standard amount for an amalgam filling. The difference must be paid by the patient.

Patients with private health insurance or supplementary dental insurance are usually reimbursed for inlays in full if this is compatible with their concluded contract.

"We offer a high quality and aesthetically pleasing solution for your fixed dentures."


Crowns, bridges or dentures are made and fitted to restore the form and function of severely damaged teeth, or to replace missing teeth.

 Veneers are often requested as a solution, but they do not solve the problem of tooth damage – rather, they only cover it up.

A well-fitting and good quality replacement of your teeth is very important for your mouth and your overall health. If the gaps are not closed soon, disturbances in your masticatory system, bone recession and shifting or tilting of your other teeth may occur.

If a natural tooth has been severely destroyed by caries, for instance, it can be preserved with an artificial dental crown. However, the prerequisite for this is the presence of the natural tooth root and some remaining tooth substance to attach the crown.

Even after root canal treatment, the tooth is usually crowned with an artificial crown to protect it from fracture. Dental crowns are usually made of gold, metal or ceramic (zirconium).


A dental bridge is used to close gaps between teeth.
If neighbouring teeth are still present, they are ground down by your dentist during treatment so that a dental bridge can be attached to them.

Dental bridges can be made of metal or ceramic, just like dental crowns. Whether gaps between teeth are closed by bridges or implant-supported dentures should be decided on an individual basis. Dental bridges are usually a cheaper replacement for broken teeth.

Dental prostheses or partial dentures are mainly necessary as tooth replacements when there is no longer any possibility of anchoring bridges to teeth. This is the case when there are only a few or no teeth left.

The materials used in denture manufacture are plastics, metals or ceramics, whereby the visible artificial teeth are made of either plastic or ceramics.

Dental implants can improve the support.

With multiple implants, fixed dentures can also be reintegrated.
(e.g. "all on Four")

"Metal-free dentures offer better compatibility."

BIO dentures

Dental materials are in contact with the human body for a long time, therefore they should be biocompatible.

In medicine, “biocompatible” refers to materials that are biologically compatible and do not trigger any reactions in the body when in direct contact with living tissue.

The materials ceramics, zirconium oxide and Peek should be mentioned here as absolutely biocompatible. They have no allergy potential, are compatible with mucous membranes and tissues, and the materials have no measurable solubility – that is they doesn’t release any substances into the surrounding tissue.

We at RHEIN WEISS specialise in metal-free dentures.
