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 Aesthetics treatment services include porcelain laminates, metal-free porcelain veneers or bridges, teeth whitening methods, onlay fillings, zirconium bridges or porcelain on implants.
Teeth 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 whitened in the dentist’s office or your dentist can recommend you a kit that can be used at home and includes a mouth guard that is suitable for your mouth. Both options use some form of hydrogen peroxide to remove stains and brighten teeth.
Porcelain veneers are specially made, nail-thick tooth-colored shells that are adhered to your natural tooth. 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 bonded on it. Porcelain veneers are the solution to problems such as discolored, worn or crooked 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 and the color of your natural tooth are harmonized. Afterwards, your tooth is gently filed and a gel is applied to ensure tight adhesion of the bonding material. After the composite material is applied, it is placed on the tooth and cured with high-intensity light. It is then polished for a natural look. Bonding is effective on small areas because larger areas are prone to breakage.
Inlay-Onlay Fillers or White Composite Fillers
Dark metal amalgam fillings should be replaced as they wear out over time; They can also cause the tooth to crack and split. Tooth-colored fillings are almost unnoticeable, as they are very color-matched to your natural teeth. In addition, they are stronger and longer lasting than silver fillings.
