Cosmetic (esthetic) dentistry is a branch of dentistry which unites almost all fields of dental care and which has been brought to perfection esthetically, as well as functionally. It includes oral rehabilitation which offers esthetic results that fulfill all of the patients’ wishes. Thanks to state-of-the art technology and our team’s professional skills, we will take care of not only your dental health, but also the beauty of your smile.
A sparkling smile that reveals white and shiny teeth is truly beautiful, and it allows us to smile confidently. A smile is also the first thing we notice when meeting someone new. However, many factors can lead to tooth discoloration – age combined with our lifestyle can discolor and darken our teeth, and everyday activities and habits such as drinking coffee, tea, soft drinks, red wine, smoking, taking certain antibiotics can also stain our teeth.
There are various teeth whitening methods available. Although it is possible to use teeth whitening products at home, we recommend that you choose an in-office solution in order to get optimal results and avoid any unwanted effects of unprofessional use at home.
Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed is the tooth whitening procedure we use and can only be done in dental offices. The Zoom system is a dentist-supervised, safe and effective procedure. It is the quickest and most effective way to whiten your teeth up to eight shades and will give you a lasting brighter smile.
After meeting and speaking with our dentist, he will determine the state of your teeth and proceed with cleaning and polishing your teeth. Then the whitening process will begin and can last 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes and can achieve up to eight shades lighter, depending on your wishes. The LED light technology with the application of a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel enables minimal chair time and gives great results.
After the treatment, it is recommended that patients stay away from foods and beverages that can stain the teeth for a few days. The only disadvantage of the Zoom whitening treatment is that some patients can experience sensitivity of the teeth, which usually disappears within 48 hours. Philips Zoom’s priority is eliminating any side-effects and sensitivity after receiving treatment, while achieving the best possible results. It is no wonder that this is one of the most popular teeth whitening procedures in the world.
Veneers are thin ceramic shells that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of the teeth, and they require minimal tooth shaping, providing a natural look to your teeth. Veneers can be used to fix chipped, misaligned, worn down, uneven, slightly stained or abnormally spaced teeth.
Veneers require less tooth structure to be removed, usually only 0.5 mm of the enamel surface is required to be removed, which is an advantage over dental crown replacements, since they require more tooth restructuring.
Since veneers are thin, they are more susceptible to breakage or fracturing than crowns are, and patients should be careful when biting hard foods. People who grind their teeth are not recommended to get veneers.
Veneers are an important part of cosmetic dentistry today and are one of the most popular esthetic tooth procedures in the world, giving you the Hollywood smile you deserve.
