Replacing Amalgam Filligs With Resin-Composite Ones

Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

Once the tooth has been prepared, the resin is applied in layers on the tooth. Each layer of the resin will then be hardened using a special curing light. Next, the composite will be smoothed out and polished to help prevent future staining and premature wear and tear.

Composite fillings do not require that as much of the tooth be removed compared to other types of fillings. Once the filling has had the opportunity to bond with the natural tooth, the entire tooth becomes stronger overall. On the other hand, with amalgam fillings, for example, a large portion of your natural tooth must be removed along with any sections that have decayed. This can weaken the overall structure of the tooth.

Dental Bonding / Lifting

This is one of the most common interventions in Cosmetic Dentistry. They are conservative restorations with resin composite placed in layers, which are usually carried out with no drilling of the teeth. Dental Bonding / Lifting is for anyone wishing to correct, brighten, renew, or perfect their smile.
It is a fact that, over time, teeth are grinded and subjected to natural wear and tear. With Dental Bonding / Lifting the Cosmetic Dentist can restore this damage, and also reduce or eliminate gaps between teeth, change the length of the teeth or cover discolorations, micro fractures, or fractures. It is worth noting that these interventions are completely painless and are carried out in a single visit.
Moreover, the latest technology in composite resins provides an excellent range, which allows the perfect matching of each tooth regarding colour and transparency, so that the end result is completely natural.
For these reasons, the results of Bonding / Lifting are immediate, spectacular, and can – subject to the proper care – last for years. Another of its benefits is the relatively low cost and the possibility for corrective work to be performed.
It is important, in any case, for the Cosmetic Dentist to perform the correct overall design that takes into account all smile design rules, such as the smile line, the gum line and, of course, the occlusion of the teeth, in order to avoid wear and tear and fractures.

Porcelain Veneers And Crowns

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are attached to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. They’re often made from porcelain or resin-composite materials and are permanently bonded to your teeth.
Veneers can be used to treat a number of different cosmetic concerns, including chipped, broken, discolored, or smaller-than-average teeth.
Some people may only get one veneer in the case of a broken or chipped tooth, but many get between six to eight veneers in order to create an even, symmetrical smile. The top front eight teeth are the most commonly applied veneers.
PORCELAIN CROWNS or dental crowns (also referred to as tooth or dental caps) can give you that dazzling smile that you wish for, and it can be easier than you think.
Crowns are made by taking impressions of your tooth or teeth and then place a porcelain or metal cap – or a blend of both – and then adhere that cap to your tooth.
Dental crowns are fixed prosthetics that are permanently cemented onto your natural teeth with the purpose of covering a damaged or chipped tooth; that said, crowns also strengthen the tooth, improve the alignment of your mouth, and porcelain crowns can definitely improve the overall aesthetic appearance of your teeth and smile in general.
People get a porcelain crown or a dental crown for a variety of reasons, but mainly to fix or cover damaged teeth and to have a better smile.

Full-mouth rehabilitation using combination of porcelain restorations and bonding techniques

Adhesive dentistry has changed the face of traditional dentistry and has the potential to improve esthetics and reduce tooth preparation. However, the materials and techniques used in adhesive dentistry are generally more technique sensitive than those used in traditional dentistry. It is, therefore, important that strict guidelines and protocols are followed to ensure long-term success.

There appears to be an increasing trend of young to middle-aged patients presenting with advanced generalized tooth surface loss. These dentitions are conducive to treatment that combines traditional and adhesive treatment , involved in the full-mouth rehabilitation , using a combination of all-ceramic crowns, porcelain and bonding techniques.

Complete or partial, flexible invisible cosmetic dentures

Despite all of the advances in modern dentistry, your natural teeth may not last forever. Invisible partial dentures are one of the many options for replacing lost or extracted teeth. Invisible partial dentures are held in place by attaching them to the remaining natural teeth. They can fabricated without the use of a metal frame (in most cases), using a strong and durable material. The partial snaps securely and comfortably into place around your existing natural teeth and gums.
