As our age progresses the distance between pogonion/gnathion and nose become shorter due to erosion of teeth over time and the lines occur on the lip edge. Marionette lines that run from the nose to bottom become clearer. Our cheeks move downward with the effect of gravity. All of these changes continue very slowly but steadily and become evident. We can make our teeth better and younger with our aesthetic dental laminates and whitening treatment. We are able to recover desired smile with aesthetic porcelain laminates and Veneers.
Laminates are very fine porcelains that are permanently affixed to the surface of the front teeth by making very little erosion on the teeth. In some cases we do this application without even touching the teeth. Discoloration (antibiotics, fluoride, genetic disorders), split teeth, old and colored fillings, deformity, broken or eroded teeth (bruxism) can be restored with laminates. Despite being very pretty slim laminates are capable of giving natural beauty and function to teeth with their tough and durable structure and their non-perishable colors. Before initiating laminate treatment a special mock-up model is prepared according to the measures taken from the patient and we define the restoration type by applying that on this model. Then we apply this model orally. So before having any dental operation, our patient decides to the shape and color of the laminate by seeing them orally. After this preliminary proof teeth are prepared for laminate veneers and teeth measures are taken. Teeth are placed into your mouth smoothly in the next session. In this way, you have a healthy and aesthetically smile within 1 week. You can use laminate teeth with good oral care and regular doctor visits for a lifetime.
The tooth surface cleaning is the mostly applied method to remove discoloration and bleaching of the teeth. It should be done once a year for healthy teeth and gums. We treat cigars, cigarettes, coffee and tea stains in half an hour. For those who prefer to have their teeth naturally whiter we apply bleaching process. We can whiten the color of teeth with special teeth whitening device up 5 to 10 color tone. Bleaching is the natural whitening of teeth color procedure up 5 to 10 color tone. In This treatment we do not apply any procedure that lead to any material loss or painting over the teeth. Therefore, it is harmless to the teeth. System is applied as follows. Tooth structure consists of interconnected channels. Teeth continuously absorb fluid orally through these channels. Since our nutrition mostly consists of colored foods and drinks, teeth become darker over time. The colored fluid in these channels is thrown out and replaced with colorless liquid in the bleaching process. We can think of this process as cleaning of contaminated pipes. We recommend staying away from all colored food and drinking after 48 hours of this process because in this time period teeth absorb oral fluid to the maximum degree. Food and beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine, cola, soy sauce and smoking should be avoided.
Bonding application is an easy and inexpensive treatment without even touching your teeth. We use special filling materials especially produced for this method. This application is an alternative treatment to porcelain laminates. We use them for the correction of small deformations, the elimination of coloration and for filling the gaps between the teeth. This practice is rarely done with anesthesia. First tooth surface is roughening up with special agents so that bonding material can hold on the surface. Then, we place the bonding material on the tooth surface and we harden the material with UV light. After this, the material is polished until it gets smooth. If you make regular visits to your dentist every 6 months and you made the necessary arrangements, it is a long-term application.
