Aesthetic dentistry is a procedure that has been applied frequently in recent years, aiming to make the person's smile perfect and to correct the defects in the teeth. A beautiful smile helps people to regain their self-confidence and to feel better. For this reason, people who think that there are defects in their teeth want to have more elegant and perfect teeth by applying to aesthetic dentistry.
Aims of Dental Aesthetics;
Considering your personal wishes, it is to plan the most beautiful smile that combines function, aesthetics and naturalness. Generally, one or more procedures such as whitening, porcelain lamina, implant or gingival leveling are applied together. In the smile design, factors such as the person's face shape, skin color, gender, age, lips, color of teeth, alignment and gum form are taken into consideration.
Some individuals complain that their gums appear too much or their teeth look short, especially when they laugh. These cases, which we call "gummy smile", can be treated with a simple gum shaping operation. The permanent aesthetic result in the gums left to heal after the operation can be obtained in a very short time.
Tooth color is very important for individuals in providing dental aesthetics. In some cases, professional cleaning, such as tooth surface cleaning and polishing, to remove stains and tartar, is insufficient to optimize tooth color. In this case, the tooth color can be made desired with a correct whitening treatment. Bleaching is the most recommended and used cosmetic dentistry procedure all over the world. Its safety has been proven, and no side effects or complications have been encountered in the long term. It is a method that is easy to apply, practical and satisfies patients in a very short time with its fast results.
The composite tooth material, which is in the appearance of the enamel and dentine layers of the tooth, is applied to the cavities on the tooth or the prepared surfaces with the help of binding agents and the tooth is formed and then hardened with a high intensity beam device. The result is a healthy and bright smile that complements other teeth and surrounding tissues with its natural appearance.
Inlay and onlay restorations made of composite or porcelain materials to fill a tooth decayed or a similar structural disorder are also called indirect fillings. It is prepared by technicians in laboratories with special systems, not by the physician in the clinic.
Dental implants are titanium parts that are placed in the jawbone in the place of lost teeth and fused with the bone and serve as a natural tooth root. These structures are made of tissue-friendly titanium and are easily accepted by the body. It has no side effects. The result is not only a beautiful smile but also a younger look.
For these restorations, which are applied especially on the front teeth, only a small amount of tooth tissue is removed by thinning 0.3-0.7 mm from the front surfaces of the teeth. Consistency is provided by making a very light roughening. It is a highly preferred type of coating in aesthetic dentistry. It provides a beautiful smile to the person with its perfect color and texture harmony. They are restorations that maintain their aesthetic appearance for a long time. They look natural because of their good light permeability. Porcelain laminates are quite transparent and thin. With this application, the tooth color, shape, size and length of the patient are redesigned and all aesthetic concerns of the patient are eliminated.
Zirconium is one of the best quality dental materials used with its strength, tissue compatibility and natural appearance. Its white color allows zirconium to imitate natural tooth tissue very well. Today, very successful results are obtained in dental and implant supported crown bridge applications made using zirconium material.
