Veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of your teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured tooth or to lighten the front teeth.
A veneer can make a chipped tooth look intact again. The porcelain covers the whole of the front of the tooth with a thicker section replacing the broken part.
Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.
A pretty, white and bright smile, is certainly a good cover letter. But the fact is that, largely, to have or not beautiful teeth depends on genetic issues. The tone is determined by the color of the dentin. It darkens with age because the enamel becomes more translucent and also it is strongly influenced by our eating habits , besides the fact if we are smokers or not.
The good thing is that we have choices according to your need, the office whitening (1 hour) or conventional whitening gel with covers that you can use at the house, both grant very good aesthetic results.
An orthodontist -specialist in orthodontia, is limited to practice orthodontia only. Whereas general dentists can provide orthodontic treatment along with other treatments for teeth like fillings, cleanings, crowns, etc.
Orthodontists are concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity and/or disproportionate jaw relationships.
Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth.
A root canal is a treatment of the pulp of the tooth that is inflamed, infected, or dead. The pulp is a soft substance in the center of the tooth that consists of nerve, blood vessels, and connective tissue. The pulp chamber is the hollow part in the center of the tooth that contains the pulp, and it continues down canals that extend through the roots of teeth and into the surrounding bone. Some roots have more than one root canal, but all have at least one canal.
Root canal treatment (RCT), or endodontic treatment, are the more correct terms for a procedure that treats the nerve of the tooth. Endodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals specifically with the tooth pulp and tissues surrounding the root of the tooth.
A root canal problem may be treated by a general dentist or by an endodontist.
An endodontist is a dentist who has gone to multiple years of specialty training after dental school to focus particularly on root canal treatments. General dentists are qualified to perform root canals but may refer a patient to an endodontist if the tooth is particularly complicated or is being treated for the second time.
It is a surgical specialty that includes diagnosis, surgery and treatment of diseases related to injuries and aesthetic aspects of the mouth, head and neck, among which we mention the following:
- Surgery of cleft lip – palate.
- Management of skull-maxillofacial injuries (bone, teeth and soft parts), including acute trauma and treatment of long term physical damage.
- Management of intra-operative anxiety, sedation and life support.
- Management of congenital anomalies of the head and neck.
- Surgical and non-surgical management of diseases and temporo-mandibular joint dysfunction.
- Management of infections of the head and neck.
- Surgery of impacted third molars and teeth.
- Orthognathic surgery and facial orthopedics.
- Preprosthetic surgery, including intra and extra implant.
- Reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.
Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials and new materials are being introduced all the time.
Here are some of the most popular options:
- Porcelain bonded to precious or non-precious metal: this is what most crowns are made from. A precious or non-precious metal base is made and then porcelain is applied in layers over it.
- Porcelain crowns: these crowns are made entirely out of porcelain and are not as strong as bonded crowns, but they can look very natural and are most often used for front teeth.
- All-ceramic crowns: this modern material is metal free. It can give the strength of a bonded crown and the appearance of a porcelain crown. This makes it suitable for use in all areas of the mouth.
- Glass: these crowns look very natural and are used on both front and back teeth.
- Gold alloy crowns: gold is one of the oldest filling materials. Today it is used with other metals to increase its strength, which makes it a very hard-wearing restoration. These crowns are silver or gold in colour.
Implants allow us to comfortably chew, smile and talk with the same security that natural teeth give us. In this regard it is important to understand that an implant is nothing but an artificial root. They are useful to support the different types of existing dentures.
The main benefits of implants are:
- Replace removable dentures by fixed teeth, improving the functionality and at the same time serve as anchors for this type of dentures increasing stability .
- To replace teeth without wearing the natural teeth next to the missing one.
- Preventing bone loss after tooth extraction.
The major goal in a prosthesis is to restore the functionality of the mouth for the patient’s welfare, the role of the mouth that primarily need to be retrieve are: first, an effective chewing without the interference of the prosthesis for swallowing, since both functions directly affect something as fundamental as is the food, and second, the adequate phonetics to allow the patient to have a proper communication.
The other equally important part is confidence, self-esteem and personal development in the society of a person who can smile and speak normally and calmly.
The prosthesis can be:
- Tooth-supported: supported by abutment teeth that the patient still have.
- Muco -supported: supported by the alveolar process and gums.
- Tooth -muco-supported: supported by teeth and gums.
- Implant: supported by dental implants.
Dental Bridges are usually made of porcelain bonded to precious metal. Sometimes, there are other non-precious metals used in the base for strength. There are also new bridges made entirely of a special type of strong porcelain.
What will a bridge cost?
Costs will vary according to the size and type of bridge you need. Always get a written estimate and treatment plan before beginning any dental treatment. Although a bridge may seem expensive it should last many years.
How do I look after my bridge?
You need to clean your bridge every day, to prevent problems such as bad breath and gum disease. You also have to clean under the false tooth every day. Your dentist or hygienist will show you how to use a bridge needle or special floss, as a normal toothbrush cannot reach.
Dental check up
You may assume you should have a dental check-up every six months, but some people may not need to go so often and others may need more frequent checks.
Your dentist will suggest when you should have your next dental check-up based on how good your oral health is. The time between check-ups can vary from three months to two years depending on how healthy your teeth and gums are and your risk of future problems.
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.
The white fillings are the safer and more attractive alternative to the old silver amalgam fillings.
A qualified cosmetic dentist is able to provide you with white fillings that are virtually invisible. The removal of the amalgam fillings enables us to deliver to the patients white fillings to provide a more pleasant smile, teeth without silver look.
