What Is Aesthetic Dentistry ?
Aesthetic dentistry is a group of dentistry that is consist of technics to improve your smile appearance, shape and color as well as its health and function. People sometimes refer it as cosmetic dentistry but there is a specific difference between tthem. While cosmetic dentistry focuses on appearance of your smile only, aesthetic dentistry aims for an improved appearance with functionally and oral health. We approach aesthetic dentistry here because our patients can choose a variety of dental solutions from porcelain veneers to fillings with us.
Pocelain Laminate Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that provide strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel and recreate the natural look of teeth. These porcelains are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size or length. A very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed to apply a veneer, usually less than a millimeter. This is essential because a room for the porcelain veneer should be created to fit within the mouth and most accurately restore natural tooth function while creating a better appearance than the original tooth. Porcelain veneer may also be a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth, and in some situations where the tooth position is compromised and there are minor bite-related problems. Tooth whitening or bleaching are useless for superficial stains for some people. In these situations, a porcelain veneer may be the best option.
Zirconium (Zirconia) Teeth
Zirconium is a very strong material which is compatible with the human body. Zirconia is already used in many other medical applications such as artificial joints because of its strength and durability. It is safe to use and preferred by many people to porcelain fused to metal crowns.
Zirconia crowns are very strong and can withstand most chewing and biting activities. They are very resistible to high temperatures and don’t cause teeth hypersensitivity. Zirconium crowns are much stronger than porcelain and porcelain-fused-to-metal ones. Furthermore this acid-proof material prevents the absorption of pollutants and makes cleaning easier and can last longer than other type of crowns. As Zirconia can be modified according to the size and shape of your teeth, it will be easily placed alongside with. They are also smooth,matching the size , color and shade of your orijinal teeth and a perfect choice for attractive teeth restoration. Zirconia crowns rarely provoke allergic reaction or gum irritation.
Dental porcelain can be sculpted to replicate the look of your natural tooth enamel. It also provides desirable strength and resilience. Porcelain dental crowns are an excellent choice when recreating the form and function of a damaged tooth, as a crown basically replaces the entire external portion of the tooth down to the gum level. Crowns are not only limited to simply replacing the original tooth, but can be designed to create an even better appearance. A porcelain crown is thicker than a veneer and, in some cases, this thickness is needed.
Aesthetic filling is replacing and restoring your tooth structure that is damaged due to decay or fracture with a material. The aesthetic filling matches with the color of the teeth and well-functioning on a long-time period.
Composite filling material that is used for aesthetic fillings can be used both in the front and molar teeths. During the removal of the decayed tooth dentists removes a very minimal healthy tooth-tissue that the filling will have a strong hold. During the making of the filling materials dentists use special adhesives, wherby the filling will be chemically attached to tooth tissues.
Gum Contouring and Teeth Reshaping
Gum contouring is a purely cosmetic dental treatment that reshapes the gums look around the teeth. If your teeth sit low in your gum line or are nonuniform in shape or the gum tissue has been damaged or infected, it may need to be removed or reshaped to promote better recovery and this gum contouring procedure can give you a better look. Not only can our dentists make the teeth look more healthy, but they can also repair the gum line to make your teeth more secure.
A dental implant, that is composed of a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails, is used to support one or more false teeth. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.
Implants are safe and much like natural teeth and last for as long as you care for them.
How well you look after your implants will have the biggest impact on how long they will last. If your implants are well looked after, and if the bone they are fitted to is strong and healthy, you can expect them to last for many years.
Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to the long lasting structure of implant-supported full bridges or dentures, dental implants have more natural teeth appearence. They also are more comfortable and stable than conventional dentures. Dental implants allow you to retain a more natural biting and chewing capacity as they integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact and because they replace some of your tooth roots, your bone is better preserved.
Laser teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that is used in dental medicine to lighten the shade of the teeth to make them look whiter, younger, healthier and more beautiful.
There are many factors that affect the tooth color. Inner factors can be the proportion of the inner, more yellow dental tissue- dentin, and the outer, lighter dental tissue- enamel and discolorations due to the assumption of medicines. These factors cannot be influenced and they determine the basic tooth colour. Whitening affects the tooth discoloration caused by outer factors such as smoking and coloured food or liquids or tooth discoloration caused by tooth devitalisation.
Laser teeth whitening is completely painless and safe and doesn’t cause tooth enamel damage. After the teeth whitening procedure, especially spicy and coloured food and liquids are not allowed patients to eat and drink. Patients should quit smoking for a certain period of time and detailed instructions on a correct oral hygiene in order to extend the benefits of the treatment are given to patients.
