Aesthetic Dentistry covers a process in which general dentistry and some basic procedures are applied together in order to provide a healthy and beautiful smile. Dental Aesthetic treatment services include porcelain laminates, metal-free porcelain veneers or bridges, tooth whitening methods, onlay fillings, zirconium bridges or over-implant porcelains.
Tooth whitening, one of the simplest and most well-known cosmetic procedures, is the most effective method for teeth with yellow, brown or orange stains.
Teeth can be bleached in the dentist’s office, or your dentist can recommend a home-use kit that includes a mouth guard tailored to your mouth. Both options use a form of hydrogen peroxide to clean stains and polish teeth.
Porcelain veneers are specially made, nail-thick tooth-colored shells that are adhered to your natural teeth. They are colorless and close to transparent and therefore give a natural appearance in accordance with the shape, size, color and length of the tooth adhered on. Porcelain veneers are the solution to problems such as discolored, worn or bent teeth.
Bonding is used to repair fractures and cracks in teeth or to change shape and color, especially in front teeth. First, the color of the composite material to be bonded is matched with the color of your natural tooth. Then, your tooth is lightly filed and a gel is applied to ensure the bonding material adheres here. After the composite material is applied, it is placed on the tooth and hardened with high intensity light. It is then polished for a natural look. Bonding is effective on small areas because larger areas are susceptible to breakage.
Inlay-Onlay Fillings or White Composite Fillings
Dark metal amalgam fillings must be replaced as they wear out over time; They can also cause the tooth to crack and split. Since tooth-colored fillings are very compatible in color with your natural teeth, they are almost not noticeable. In addition, they are stronger and longer lasting than silver fillings.
