Cosmetic dentistry

Beautiful, healthy, and well-aligned teeth help radiate harmony. More and more of our patients come to us with this thought in mind. Others are looking for dental restorations that do not merely give them back their original chewing ability but that also give them an attractive smile. When professional, functional, and aesthetic considerations are given equal importance during the design, production, and fitting of dental prosthetics, we talk about cosmetic dentistry.

Smile planning

During smile planning, you and your dentist work together to decide what your beautiful new smile will look like. This takes place before any treatment is done.

Smile planning helps more accurately define your and your dentist’s ideas as it involves images rather than just words.

Before smile planning technology existed, any of the following scenarios could easily lead to misunderstandings:

  • the patient couldn’t exactly put his or her ideas and expectations into words;
  • the patient may not have understood the technical jargon of dentistry; and
  • in trying to deliver what the client or the dentist imagined, the dental laboratory could only rely on words said or unsaid.

In view of the above, the following issues are discussed during dental consultation:

  • What is your real dental problem?
  • What is the optimum solution for your problem?
  • What will your smile be like once you have received your treatment?

We recommend smile planning when you have any of the following dental problems:

  • Your teeth are misaligned and you would like to change this.
  • You believe your teeth are not white enough and teeth whitening does not bring the re-sults you desire.
  • Your teeth have worn off or chipped and this bothers you aesthetically.
  • You do not like your old restorations and would like to have them replaced.

The stages of smile planning

  1. During the consultation, your and your dentist thoroughly discuss your dental problems, if any, and your needs and expectations.
  2. Your dentist thoroughly examines you, takes a digital panoramic radiograph (X-ray) of your teeth, and then you agree on a treatment plan.
  3. Based on a number of photos taken, and using a special computer programme (Smylist Professional®), you and your dentist design your ideal new smile. Your involvement at this stage is strongly encouraged so we can learn more about your ideas – after all, this is what we will base our work on.
  4. Your dentist will prepare the price quotation, and if you consider it acceptable, your dentist will start the interventions based on the plans.
  5. The design drawings of the dental prosthetics are sent out to the dental laboratory, and the technicians produce the dental restorations that have the exact shape, colour, and size that you and your dentist planned together.
  6. During the try-in, the dentist makes sure that the cosmetic restorations manufactured meet all your expectations, and if this is the case, he will proceed to cement them in po-sition permanently.

From your decision to go ahead, your cosmetic dental restorations may take less than a week to manufacture! (The time actually needed is, of course, subject to the complexity of the intervention.)

What is so different about aesthetic filling?

Filling a tooth may seem a simple and fast procedure. It is the most commonly performed inter-vention at our dentistry. However, today’s high aesthetic expectations mean that even a simple filling should look just perfect. Are you thinking about fillings that meet the highest standards in terms of their aesthetic appearance? Thanks to scientific progress in dentistry, today we can offer sophisticated solutions to our patients that were unheard of even just a few years ago.

There are three criteria that aesthetic fillings must meet:

  • durable and solid filling materials that match the colour of natural teeth;
  • professionals specialised in cosmetic dentistry;
  • state of the art technology for producing aesthetic fillings.

As a result of our lifestyle and nutritional habits, dental caries (tooth decay) is a common phe-nomenon. The earlier it is treated the easier it is to prevent bacteria from proliferating and causing inflammations. Thanks to aesthetic fillings, the chewing ability of the tooth will be the same as it was in its original healthy state; at the same time, they match the original colour of your tooth so your filling will be invisible.

Often, there may be more than one solution to a dental problem. Call our dentistry at +36 62 317 818 for a consultation to find out about the possible alternatives and to chose the one that is best for you.

Fillings that match the colour of your tooth

Light-curing fillings matching the colour of your tooth are made of a special composite material, a resin reinforced with glass or ceramic beads. Once he has removed any dental decay, the dentist uses this soft filling material to restore your tooth to a lifelike shape. Thanks to this material, the surface of the decayed and restored tooth, as well as its chewing ability, will be exactly like those of a healthy tooth. This composite material is as hard as natural dental enamel, which makes it a durable and aesthetically appealing solution.

These photos demonstrate the spectacular change in the appearance of a tooth when the amalgam is replaced with an aesthetic composite filling.

Inlays and onlays

Occasionally, tooth decay may be so extensive that composite fillings are not any more an op-tion. In such cases, the solution may be one of two types of indirect restoration: inlays and onlays.

Inlays and onlays are a special type of filling that are normally made in a dental laboratory in about a week’s time. However, Dentha Dentistry has the special machinery that helps solve this problem in as little time as an hour. You may read more about this later in this section.

Additional advantages of inlays and onlays:

  • They are lifelike and beautiful.
  • They are highly resistant to wear and chipping.
  • They do not provoke allergic reactions.
  • These photos demonstrate how perfectly an inlay or onlay matches the shape, colour, and tex-ture of the existing natural teeth.

The procedure

In the case of inlays and onlays, the dentist removes all dental decay from the tooth, then takes an impression using dental putty and sends it out to the dental laboratory. The technicians at the lab produce your inlay or onlay on the basis of the impression. Your dentist prepares your tooth and tries in the restoration, and if it is perfect in every sense, cements it in position per-manently.

Zirconium ceramic crowns and bridges

Some dental problems may not be possible to solve using a filling or an inlay. In such cases, we will propose a crown or a bridge as the solution to restore your tooth or teeth. Our zirconium ceramic crowns and bridges offer a host of advantages over the traditional metal ceramic solu-tion because they are metal free, they do not provoke allergic reactions, they have great aes-thetic appeal, and they can be fitted with extreme precision in the range of a thousandth of a millimetre. No wonder they are becoming ever more popular with our patients.

Restorations that fit naturally

Zirconium crowns and bridges blend in with your existing teeth – no one will be able to tell that you even have them fitted. The dark tone of the crown or bridge and the grey line around the edge of the gums, typical of metal ceramics, are now things of the past. Zirconium crowns and bridges match the natural colour of your existing teeth.

Of high aesthetic appeal, metal free zirconium ceramic crowns and bridges are prepared simi-larly to traditional metal ceramic dental restorations. Your dentist will remove any damage or decay, then take an impression of your affected teeth using dental putty and send it off to the dental laboratory. Instead of casting it in metal, the dental laboratory will mill the interior of your future dental prosthesis in zirconium, using CAD/CAM technology.

This technology allows us to achieve the greatest possible precision. As the first step, the dental lab will use a special laser scanner to obtain a 3D image of the impression taken of your tooth. Then, with the help of a computer, a restoration is custom-designed and manufactured for you. Your dentist will check how well the interior of the restoration fits your tooth. If the fit is per-fect, the dental lab proceeds to fuse the porcelain to the zirconium interior. This grants your restoration great aesthetic appeal. If the zirconium crown or bridge is to your satisfaction both in terms of appearance and comfort, your dentist will cement it in position permanently. The result is a perfect fit, great durability, and great natural appearance.

Metal ceramic crowns and bridges

Even today, metal ceramic crowns and bridges continue to be the most popular type of dental restoration. With all pros and cons considered, traditional metal ceramic crowns and bridges have for decades offered a lasting solution to certain dental problems:

  • they restore your chewing ability;
  • they replace your missing teeth when implants are not an option;
  • they offer a solution to treat extensive tooth decay when a filling or an inlay is not an option any more.

Metal ceramic restorations – The pros and the cons

Metal ceramic restorations – The pros:

  • Cost efficiency
  • Strength and durability
  • Restored chewing ability
  • A full set of dental restoration can be made within just a week

Metal ceramic restorations – The cons:

  • Less lifelike and less translucent than metal free solutions
  • A darkish tone
  • A grey line may appear around the edges of the crown
  • The metal may cause allergic reactions

Metal ceramic crowns are made in a similar way to metal free restorations, the difference being in how the dental laboratory produces them:

  • Your dentist will remove any decay, then take an impression of your affected teeth using dental putty and send it off to the dental laboratory.
  • The dental lab prepares the metal interior using traditional technology. Once the inte-rior has been checked for a good fit, the porcelain exterior is fused to it, making sure that the ceramic has the same colour as your own teeth.
  • Your dentist will once again check the appearance and fit of your crown or bridge, and if everything is fine, the restoration is cemented permanently in position.

Ceramic veneers

Ceramic veneers offer outstanding advantages both in terms of aesthetic appeal and functionality. A lot less of the tooth matter is drilled away than in the case of a having a crown fitted. The aesthetic result they deliver is lasting, and they are resistant to wear.

What is a pressed ceramic veneer?

A pressed ceramic veneer is a layer of porcelain as thin as a contact lens that is fitted over the front of the tooth. Veneers give a renewed, beautiful appearance to your incisors. Because of their unparalleled properties, veneers are extremely popular with celebrities all over the world. We recommend that you consider dental veneers for making your smile more beautiful if:

  • You are unsatisfied with the shape or the size of your teeth.
  • Your teeth are misaligned and this makes you feel awkward.
  • Your teeth have worn off or chipped.
  • Your teeth have become discoloured because of certain medications and whitening does not help.
  • You would like to reduce a wide gap (diastema) between your teeth.
  • You would like to modify your bite by applying veneers fitted to the chewing surface.

Tartar removal and regular dental check-ups

Tartar or calculus is the calcified, hardened version of the dental plaque that generates in your mouth. It causes a lot of problems, so it is a good idea to get it periodically removed since it always builds up again. If you do not remove the plaque from your saliva by brushing your teeth correctly and by using dental floss, calcium crystal deposits form on your teeth creating tartar.

Tartar is not always visible. If it builds up above your gum line, its yellowish-white colour will make it apparent. However, if it is accumulating under your gum, you often do not even notice it. If you ignore tartar because it is invisible, it may lead to gingivitis or periodontitis.

Your teeth may become stained as a result of smoking or consuming certain types of food. Building up on your teeth, this apparent brownish layer cannot be removed by home remedies.

Accordingly, it is very important to make sure that you have your teeth checked regularly, once every six months, and if your dentist recommends it or considers it necessary, have your tartar or stains removed by our qualified assistants specialised in dental hygiene. Such health aware behaviour can save you a lot of discomfort and pain.

Dental hygiene treatment is a 30 to 40 minute pain-free intervention offered at our dentistry that consists of the following stages:

  • First, your dentist examines you and, if necessary, refers you to a dental hygienist. The dental hygienist, who is a qualified assistant, uses an ultrasonic scaler to gently remove any tartar or stains from your teeth.
  • As an extra option completing ultrasonic scaling, the dental hygienist offers to clean the most difficult-to-reach gaps between the surfaces of your teeth by spraying high-pressure water and a very fine salt mixture onto your teeth.
  • Finally, the dental hygienist will polish the surface of your teeth using a special polishing paste developed for professional use. This slows down plaque formation and staining.

Visit our dentistry and ask for dental hygiene treatment to prevent unpleasant periodontitis and to give back your teeth their vibrant glow! Call +36 62 317 818 for a dental hygiene treatment appointment.
