We know that beauty and attractiveness are relative and vary from person to person, society to society, and even period to period. However, the only factor that has not changed is the golden ratio.
Teeth are the most important and complementary element of facial aesthetics. When the golden ratio is achieved in the teeth, the aesthetic smile design will be completed after the necessary interventions along with other factors.
1-Home type: A special plaque is prepared for the mouth according to the measurement taken from the mouth. The special gel given to the patient by the physician is applied periodically. In our clinic, opalescence boost brand is used for home whitening.
2-Office (clinical) type: It is performed by activating a special gel applied to the teeth with a light device after the gums are isolated in the clinical environment. Zoom device and kit are used in the whitening process in our clinic.
Pink Aesthetics (Gingivoplasty)
An aesthetic smile in people cannot be achieved only with white and straight teeth. Gums should also be in harmony with these teeth. Aesthetic procedures performed on the gums are called pink aesthetics. Among the elements that complement dental aesthetics, the healthy gums, their color and the level of the gums with the teeth come to mind.
The first step in obtaining a pleasant, clean and harmonious smile consists of ensuring the necessary harmony between teeth and gums. In order for the gums to be defined as healthy, it should be light pink in color, adhere tightly to the tooth and bone, and have a dull and rough appearance resembling an orange peel. The aim of the treatments in aesthetic dentistry is to enable the patient have a perfect smile. Gingivoplasty is very important for smile that can be defined as a perfect smile. To make a pleasant smile, teeth, gums, chin and lips must be in harmony. Depending on the nature of the problem, different operation methods of gingivoplasty can be used. While shaping the gums that appear excessively while smiling, some parts of the gums also need to be reduced a little. (Gummy Smile)
Laminate veneer treatment, popularly known as leaf porcelain, has an important place among aesthetic dentistry applications. It enables to achieve superior aesthetic results with minimal intervention on the teeth. Only the front surface of the teeth is etched.
Laminate veneers, which are almost as thin as a lens, are adapted to the tooth by bonding agents. It ensures that your teeth come to the shape we want, in both color and form.
Since it is polished in porcelain ovens of approximately 900 degrees, it does not allow staining and food retention. In order to prolong their life, it is necessary to avoid biting very hard foods and bad habits such as biting nails.
Zirconium teeth are preferred by dentists and patients because of their durability as well as being aesthetic. Zirconium is an infrastructure material used to support porcelain.
Metal supported crowns, which used to be used for a long time, are no longer sufficient to meet aesthetic expectations in our age. The opaque appearance, which occurs due to the fact the material cannot transmit light, remains insufficient to give the vivid appearance of natural teeth. Other disadvantages such as the formation of a dark shadow in the parts close to the gums has also led to the need for the use of porcelain without metal support and Zirconium material in aesthetic dentistry applications. Zirconium is not allergic. It does not interact with oral fluids. Since the zirconium coating does not transmit heat and cold, there is no sensitivity due to thermal conductivity.
Full Ceramic Coating
A material has both a ceramic base and a superstructure, and provides the closest restoration opportunity to the natural tooth appearance and aesthetics thanks to its light transmittance. We use ivoclar brand ceramics in our clinic.
Porcelain Fillings (Inley-Onlay)
Compared to composite fillings, they are much more compatible with the tooth to which they are applied and adjacent teeth. Just like lamina veneers, ceramic inlays and onlays preserve the intact part of the tooth in its natural shape. Such fillings are preferred in patients with aesthetic concerns and expectation of comfort, instead of metallic and dark colored amalgam fillings in the back teeth.In addition, in cases where a large number of fillings are required, after the tooth preparation and measurement stage in a single session, ceramic fillings prepared in the laboratory are placed in the second session. This ensures timesaving to a large extent. Unlike conventional fillings, these fillings prepared in the laboratory, not in the mouth, perfectly match with the teeth. The cure life of ceramic fillings is longer than composite fillings. Since the porcelain filling has the same hardness as the tooth, it prevents fractures in the bite force and contributes to the health of the tooth as in the past. In addition, since ceramic filling is prepared in tooth color, it look so natural that it cannot be distinguished from the outside with the naked eye. These fillings, which have a natural appearance that cannot be distinguished with the naked eye, have a structure that prevents discoloration caused by cigarettes or other dyeing substances that may occur over time, thanks to improved polishing techniques. People can act freely as if there was no filling in their teeth, and they can have healthy and aesthetic teeth for many years.
Composite Laminate (Bonding)
Bonding is a procedure that does not harm the teeth at all and is performed to eliminate minor problems in the teeth. It is tried to contribute to smile aesthetics by giving the tooth a more beautiful appearance.
Sometimes the teeth may be too large or small than they should be. The color may not be what we want. In these cases, it is possible with Bonding to give the tooth a new appearance with small additions to the tooth.
Bonding can be easily applied in closing the unwanted gaps between the teeth, in the shape and color changes in the teeth. It is a method used to close the gaps between two teeth or more than one tooth. In addition, it is preferred in cases where the person’s tooth is broken due to any impact or falling in people at young ages, and where porcelain application cannot be performed. Even in cases where half of the tooth is broken, it can be applied successfully.
If there is no problem (such as caries) in the teeth, there is no need for anesthesia. During this procedure, no pain is felt. There is no need to abrade the teeth before the procedure. This procedure, which will bring aesthetics to the smile of the person and eliminate minor problems in the teeth, is often applied in a single session. The period of a session varies between 15 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the size of the aesthetic procedure to be performed. However, the number of sessions to be applied may vary from person to person and depending on the procedure to be applied.
