Esthetic fillings are made when there is no need for significant restorations of the dental tissue. They are made in the studio in one visit only.
We are all familiar with amalgam fillings that are nowadays substituted with esthetic composite fillings due to health and cosmetic motives. With these fillings, made out of top materials, the components of esthetic and natural appearance are maintained.
To make that kind of filling it is necessary to remove the cariated part of the tooth, unlike the amalgam fillings where it is also necessary to remove and reduce certain amount of healthy tooth tissue for better retention of the amalgam filling.
Esthetic fillings are made when there are no significant restorations needed, it is made in the studio, in one visit only. The wide spectre of the colors provides us with the chameleon effect, the result is perfectly matched color of the filling which makes it literally invisible.
Veneers are one of the most popular esthetic procedures. The difference between a crown and a veneer is that veneer serves the purpose of resolving an esthetic problem only while the crowns can also repair malfunctions.
Tooth preparation for a crown includes trimming only the front part of your tooth whereas for a crown the dentist needs to trim the entire tooth.
Preparing the tooth for a veneer includes using a special technique where only 0,03 mm of the tooth surface is being removed.
Today, veneers are made of ceramic. The best technology is CAD/CAM technology that doesn’t involve metals. By using veneers a number of problems can be solved: space gaps between the teeth, making bigger or smaller teeth, shape, size, color and the position of the tooth can be changed by using veneers too. They are one of the best solutions when we want to improve esthetic of our teeth.
One of the first things to notice about the other person is the smile and the teeth. Teeth mirror our health. Beautiful and white teeth make us feel more self-conscious and cheerful. To make your smile beautiful and white, we use Zoom Philips whitening technology. Zoom is the safe method that will restore the whiteness to your teeth.
The whitening procedure, if preformed by a professional, is completely harmless. If you decide to repeat the procedure, the second procedure should be at least a year apart from the first one.
Before teeth whitening, a thorough examination of your oral cavity is necessary. If you have dental calculus it should be removed to obtain the best results possible. The procedure itself is very simple. First of all, gums and the surrounding tissue should be protected. The procedure is made in three series, each 15 minutes long.
Our everyday habits (coffee, cigarettes, colored drinks…) affect the color of our teeth. If you would like to restore the color you once had you make an ideal candidate. Whitening won’t change the color of veneers, dental crowns or bridges. If the surrounding tissue is well protected, the procedure is painless (90%). Some people experience sensitivity to cold air or water. These symptoms shouldn’t last more than one day. After the procedure, you will be given oral hygiene instructions. You should avoid colored drinks (coke, coffee, colored juices, red wine, smoking…) and cold beverages.
To make your white teeth last longer first of all you should maintain good oral hygiene. If you drink coffee, red wine, tea, soft or colored drinks or if you smoke, the effect of the whitening will not last long.
Each smile is one of the kind, unique and personal. To achieve this when creating a smile we use Digital Smile design technology.
Smile design is the perfect means of communication between the patient and the dentist, the expectations are met by using all the medical and technological possibilities. The procedure of designing the new smile consists of taking photos of the current situation of the patient’s mouth; then the analysis of esthetic parameters is digitally conducted. Based on these parameters one or more simulations of your final smile are made. Thanks to this innovative technology patient, prior to any intervention, can visualize how certain changes will affect the smile esthetic and the harmony of the smile with the rest of the face.
By using this method, misunderstandings and dissatisfaction by the final prosthetic solution are avoided. Simple smile design became an irreplaceable step in planning dental prosthetic solutions.
