Aesthetics is a branch of philosophy that deals with art, beauty and taste. It deals with the creation and evaluation of beauty. In the field of dentistry, there is a constant change and development to contribute to personal beauty. These changes have revealed aesthetic dentistry.
Aesthetic dentistry aims to provide a healthy and aesthetic smile in line with the expectations of the individual. While your dentist is performing aesthetic applications; It aims to maximize its harmony with the shape of the gums, lips, cheeks, jaws and facial features.
Leaf Porcelain (Laminate Veneer)
It is one of the most important aesthetic applications. It is the coating of the teeth with leaf-shaped porcelain with 0.3 mm abrasion on the front surfaces or without any abrasion.
Since laminate veneers do not contain metal, they have a semi-transparent structure like our natural teeth, transmit light and therefore look close to nature.
To whom laminate veneers are applied:
- For those who have broken front teeth
- Those who have colored old fillings in their front teeth
- Those with diestema (opening) between the teeth
- Colored teeth that do not get sufficient results with the whitening process
In porcelain crown applications, zirconiums offer us the highest performance in terms of naturalness, durability and tissue compatibility. Today, with the developing technology and the increasing aesthetic expectations of individuals, zirconium supported porcelains are replacing metal supported porcelains. Aesthetic appearance and durable structure can be counted among the reasons why they are preferred both in the anterior and posterior molar regions.
Unlike metal-backed porcelain:
- It is tissue-friendly and does not cause allergies (metal-supported porcelains may cause allergies in some patients, although rare)
- Does not cause any discoloration on the gums even after many years
- It has a light transmitting feature like natural teeth, so it looks natural.
What is Composite Bonding (Composite Veneers)?
Direct composite veneers, which have a very important place in cosmetic dentistry, are applications made to make the colors, shapes and positions of the teeth more aesthetically attractive. Composite bonding is a cheaper alternative to porcelain laminates.
What are the advantages?
The procedure is completed in a single session, there is no laboratory requirement. There is no rehearsal, it is the only alternative for those with time problems. Our teeth stay healthy as there is minimal preparation on the teeth. We recommend composite bonding for big changes and beautiful smiles with small touches.
