Dental hygiene treatment
It is undisputedly a highly important treatment as if teeth are regularly controlled and professionally cleaned most of the dental problems such as gingivitis, which is inflammation of the gums, and particularly periodontal diseases, which is long-lasting gingivitis that can affect the tissues supporting teeth and lead to the loss of the bone anchoring the teeth, can be avoided. All gum diseases are caused by plaque which is a film of bacteria forming on the surface of the teeth. Dental hygienists can give you advice how to remove plaque successfully yourself, cleaning all surfaces of your teeth thoroughly and effectively. We offer our patients a full scale and polishing treatment which means that tartar, infected deposits and minor discolorations are removed from the teeth. This treatment is recommended once a year.
Nowadays more and more people are conscious about the way they look, there is a great demand of using only white fillings, therefore we always recommend only white fillings to our patients. We can also change old metal fillings to up-to-date color matching ones.
Inlay and onlay techniques are essentially large sized fillings that are custom made in dental laboratories after impressions made of your tooth. The inlays/onlays are to be bonded permanently to the tooth. Golden inlay is the best as well as the safest and oldest type of filling and it also lasts the longest. Its disadvantage is the aesthetic effect, therefore it is not recommended to be put into front teeth.
Endodontics is the area which includes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the pulp.
In our clinic all the general endodontic treatments such as root canal treatments, resections and post and core solutions are performed.
As for root canal treatment it is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth is infected due to decay or injury. During this treatment the root is cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection.
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is an area which aims to improve smiles and the looks of teeth. A perfect smile can be provided by different tooth whitening treatments and tooth veneer treatments.
Tooth whitening can be a highly effective way of lightening the natural color of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. Although it cannot make a complete color change it will lighten the existing shade.
Our teeth can become more discolored as we get older and they can also be stained on the surface through food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine etc. as well as smoking. The results are achieved with highly specialized chemical whitening bleach agents.
We have tried several up-to-date solutions and found that the ZOOM! Teeth Whitening System is the most effective solution for teeth whitening. Although we can offer home kits as well at a lower cost , but according to our dentists it is a more complicated procedure that is highly recommended to be done by a specialist.
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. They can improve the color, shape and position of your teeth. Veneers can also be used to cover small gaps, which orthodontics can not cope with. Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy. The other advantage of veneers is that only little preparation of the tooth is required. They last for many years, but can chip or break the same way as our own teeth can.
