A dentist helps you regain beautiful, white and healthy teeth

   Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dentistry designed so that the teeth are not only healthy, but also aesthetically beautiful. A tooth crack, chips, gaps between teeth or other cosmetic defects are the task of modern cosmetic dentistry. Currently, there are restorative techniques that can change the entire dentition directly in the patient’s mouth. The dentist can use innovative materials for reconstruction, which allows you to get closer to recreating the natural structure of the teeth and their surfaces.

The essence of cosmetic dentistry procedures is:

  • Restoring the position of the teeth
  • Shape and color customization
  • Elimination of mechanical damage.

  The methods of aesthetic tooth reconstruction are divided into direct and indirect. In the case of the direct method, reconstruction and modeling takes place in the patient’s mouth. When choosing the indirect restoration method, the dentist uses an innovative photopolymer that can provide:

  • The possibility of obtaining the desired tooth shape during one visit
  • Long-lasting shine
  • A wear-resistant surface
  • Save time
  • Possibility to choose shades close to natural.

   Aesthetic dentistry is a solution that allows you to fix many defects, the dentist carrying out selected methods of tooth reconstruction makes it impossible to distinguish them from real teeth. Indirect tooth restoration (micro-prosthetics) takes place in two or three stages. It differs from direct restoration in that the patient receives a product (crown) made according to an individual parameter in a dental laboratory. The indirect restorations are made by a dentist-prosthetist.

Teeth cleaning in the dentist’s office

   The dentist uses the most advanced professional tooth cleaning technologies. Good oral hygiene is the key to a healthy smile and fresh breath. After each meal, plaque forms on the surface of the teeth and around the edges of the gums, made of bacteria, toxins and food debris. It causes inflammatory processes that destroy the soft tissues around the teeth. If plaque is not removed with daily tooth brushing, it becomes harder and turns into tartar, which can only be removed with professional oral hygiene at a dental office.

Professional oral hygiene – what are the indications for the treatment?

   It is important to understand that in the modern world, professional hygienic tooth cleaning is a tool that a person needs from early childhood. Professional tooth cleaning by a dentist makes the teeth lightened by a few tones, and one of the main causes of bleeding gums, i.e. tartar, is removed. The number of bacteria in the mouth is reduced and it is known to be one of the leading causes of bad breath. There is also a chance to detect hidden caries and apply treatment.

To achieve better results and to prevent oral disease, your dentist may recommend that you perform a remineralization procedure after professional hygiene:

  • Tooth enamel will be strengthened
  • The tissues will be saturated with minerals
  • The risk of caries will decrease.

Teeth whitening

   Teeth whitening is a dream smile. The dentist performs whitening that is convenient, safe and fast enough. The available teeth whitening systems allow you to obtain a stable result for a long time. In addition to whitening in the dental office, it is possible to carry out a similar procedure at home. The dentist makes an impression of the jaw, from which overlays are made for a specific person. A gel purchased from a dentist is applied to such an overlay, which will allow you to achieve a spectacular end result.

More professional teeth whitening methods that are carried out by a dentist include:

  • Irradiation with the use of polymerization lamps. The protected gums are not injured during the procedure, the teeth are whitened with a whitening substance and the irradiation begins.
  • Laser whitening is similar to the previous procedure, but the irradiation is performed with a laser.

Teeth whitening: advantages and disadvantages

   When talking about the effectiveness of the whitening procedure, it is difficult to predict what result will be obtained. Unfortunately, the same drug can give a completely different shade in different patients. It is believed that a good effect is obtained in people with natural yellowing. But owners of teeth with a grayish tinge are likely to get less effect. The obtained effect may last from six months to several years. If someone wants to enjoy a snow-white smile for as long as possible, they should avoid coloring products, use special pastes and rinses, and regularly brush their teeth. Unfortunately, the whitening procedure is not always possible. It is not possible to change the color of crowns, fillings, implants or veneers. In this case, they should be completely replaced with new ones. There are also many complicated cases
