Cosmetic Dentistry adds the ideal finish to your journey towards a new, prettier face. A nice smile is a natural ornament on the face and is synonymous to good health, youthfulness and good quality of life. Today, there are practically unlimited options available for reinstating or creating the smile that best meets your aesthetic demands, eliminating the signs of age. Your doctor will propose certain options helping you find a solution that will best suit you, and together you shall define the exact treatment plan. The doctor will give you all necessary details before treatment begins.
Porcelain Veneers: A choice of option: a minor intervention, about 0,6mm thick, on the enamel at the front of the existing teeth will give you the maximum aesthetic result. Veneers give great stability overtime thanks to the porcelain’s high endurance and as of the first day of treatment you will no longer have to hide your teeth during your everyday activities. In a few days your smile can be transformed in many levels according to your plan of action. You may get a permanent whiter appearance or an improvement of the shape and size of your teeth. Veneers are used both on separate teeth or a group of teeth, or can be applied on all teeth that show when you smile. Bonding – Resin coating: Similar to veneers application, using resin instead of porcelain.

Full Ceramic Crowns: Restoration with integrated aesthetic intervention. They are selected when, apart from cosmetic improvement, natural teeth require strength support or when previous prosthesis needs replacement. They are often combined with veneers or with other restoration methods, depending on the case. Your doctor shall determine which types of restoration are suitable for your treatment plan.
Dental Implants: Implants provide restorative solution for missing teeth with results that are closest to natural appearance. They ensure functionality and high aesthetics while they are user-friendly and only require a short recovery time. The main advantage of dental implants is the preservation of existing natural teeth since these are not sculpted to support bridges, as well as the exceptional natural look of the teeth and gums following a dental implants procedure.
Implants are made of titanium and are not just simple “screws” as many may think. This type of metal is biocompatible with the human body and the bone on which it is placed.
Before placing an implant, a detailed study of each patient case must be performed (not all cases are the same and not all patients are eligible for implant placement). Options vary. The type of implant to be selected for a patient depends on a number of factors, such as the functional (chewing) and aesthetic (appearance) needs of each patient, the available jaw bone, the quality and number of existing teeth, the person’s emotional idiosyncrasy and his/her finances. In general, every person who is healthy enough to be submitted to a tooth extraction and a surgical procedure inside the mouth could be eligible for implant placement. Moreover, age is irrelevant. In case of certain heavy and chronic systemic conditions, a detailed evaluation of the patient must be performed as to his/her ability to undergo surgery.
Modern materials in dental implants as well as the much evolved fixation techniques allow for high success rates. However, in the rare case where implant fixation shall fail, it can be usually replaced by another!
