Cosmetic Dentristry

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your mouth, teeth and smile always respecting the function. These procedures are usually elective rather than essential. However, some cases of treatment also provide restorative benefits. We believe that esthetic dentistry must complement the overall general and oral health of the patient always respecting the function.

See below the Cosmetic Dentistry procedures offered by Odontoklinik:

1.1 Dental Veneers: Porcelain laminates designed in a cad cam machine or 3D printer to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, texture or length.

1.2 DSD – Digital Smile Design: Multi-use conceptual dental treatment planning tool that is used in esthetic dentistry to strengthen diagnostic vision, improve communication and enhance predictability throughout the treatment.

1.3 Smile Makeover: Process of improving ones smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, white fillings, Lumineers, crowns, dental caps, or bridges.

1.4 Teeth Whitening: one of the most basic cosmetic dentistry procedures, teeth whitening or teeth bleaching can be performed at Odontoklinik using 2 different methods.

  • Zoom® (1-2 cycles / guards + gel) à high-powered laser
  • Boost® (1-3 cycles) à combination of chemical that includes fluoride and potassium nitrate that strengthens enamel and increases cavity resistance while whitening

The Doctors may recommend the best method for each patient based on their teeth color, historical, age, habits, health and quality of enamel.

1.5 Full mouth reconstruction: describes the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. general or restorative dentists (performing procedures like crowns, bridges and veneers), and can incorporate dental specialists like periodontists (specializing in the gums), oral surgeons, orthodontists (specializing in tooth movements and positions) and endodontists (specializing in the tooth pulp).

The need for full mouth reconstruction may result from:

  • Teeth that have been lost due to decay or trauma.
  • Teeth that have been injured or fractured.
  • Teeth that have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding.
  • Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain requiring adjustments to the bite (occlusion).
  • Lost of vertical dimension of the face

 

1.6 Composite Bonding: refers to the repair of decayed, damaged or discolored teeth using material that resembles the color of tooth enamel. This treatment effectively covers the damage to the tooth and gives the appearance of a healthy tooth in its place. Usually recommended to patients with tooth decay, chipped or cracked teeth and worn-down edges.

1.7 Inlays and Onlays: also known as indirect fillings, Inlays and Onlays are made of porcelain or composite resin materials and are a long-lasting yet aesthetically pleasing way to provide a “filling” to teeth with tooth decay or similar structural damage.

When there is no damage to the tooth cusps, the Inlay is placed directly onto the tooth surface. When the cusp or a greater portion of the tooth is damaged, an Onlay is used instead to cover the tooth’s entire surface.
Both options provide support to strengthen teeth, restore their shape and avoid any further decay or deterioration.

We are dedicated to giving each of our patients the healthy smile they deserve!
