As you know when you lose a tooth or several teeth, your appearance changes in a way that you do not desire. You are negatively affected and you lose your confidence and self-esteem, which may lead to further neglection and future oral health complications. With implant dentistry those who are missing teeth no longer have to accept a lifetime of embarrassment or inconvenience. The dental implants are small, strong and durable titanium posts that are rooted in the jawbone to serve as anchors for replacement synthetic teeth. Dental implants provide a highly bio-compatible surface, which enables bone to completely fill in around the implant and provide long-term stability. This type of procedure can be used to replace a single tooth or all of the teeth. For all patients who have lost their teeth we recommend dental implants, this kind of procedure being one of the most comprehensive and durable restorative dentistry treatments.
Dental crowns are restorations that protect broken, cracked or damaged teeth. A crown is a type of dental restoration which caps or encircles a tooth or a dental implant completely. Porcelain crowns resemble the natural teeth in shape and color. Permanent crowns can be made from metal, ceramic, steel orresin. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement.
Tooth-colored Fillings are dental filings that are used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of the natural appearance of tooth structure. You can use this kind of procedure to change color, size and shape of teeth. The development of tooth-colored fillings has provided dentists and patients with a safer and more attractive alternative to silver amalgam fillings. Dentistry uses a variety of tooth-like materials that are safe to use like composite resins and porcelains. After this kind of procedure the patients’ teeth look and react more like natural teeth.
Tooth Whitening is a procedure in the field of the cosmetic dentistry. Tooth Whitening restores natural tooth color and bleaching whitens beyond the natural color. As you know there are a lot of methods for whitening like laser bleaching, natural bleaching, bleaching pen, bleaching gel. This kind of procedure is an effective way of lightening the natural white of your teeth and we don’t need to remove any of the tooth surface.
Dental Veneers refer to dental porcelain laminates, they are a layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface to protect a damaged, misaligned or discolored tooth or to improve the aesthetic of a tooth. They can be made of resin composite materials or porcelain. If they are made of porcelain they will resist better. They are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their length, color, shape, and size and therefore enhancing your smile.
Porcelain Bridges is a dental restoration method and is used to replace a missing tooth. Bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants and are typically made of porcelain, gold, porcelain fused to metal.
