THE SMILE

The most powerful form of expression

The smile represents a beautiful form of human expression. When people are unhappy with their smile, they often limit their smiles or may not smile at all. This can make them become shy, undermining their confidence and self-esteem. Restoring a smile means restoring the freedom to smile and laugh, allowing you to express your happiness without anything holding you back.


Over time, teeth tend to darken due to pigments from food and drinks. They can wear down, chip, or shift due to bruxism. They may also lose their texture through brushing or when orthodontic braces are removed. All these changes can significantly impact the appearance of the smile.

SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR SMILE

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is very effective for pigmented teeth, and it doesn’t affect the structure of teeth.

Composite Veneers

 Composite veneers involve the use of resin composites to restore the shape, color, and texture of teeth. This treatment can rejuvenate the smile and enhance the appearance of teeth, resulting in a more youthful and radiant smile. These veneers are highly conservative. They are significantly more cost-effective than porcelain veneers. However, a drawback is that they may change color and lose their shine over time, necessitating polishing and maintenance. The longevity and appearance depend on the quality of materials and technique used, as well as the dentist’s knowledge, skills, and attention to detail.

Porcelain Veneers


This procedure uses porcelain shells to improve the shape, color, and texture of teeth, resulting in a naturally shiny smile. It is a conservative and minimalistic approach to treatment.
One significant advantage over composite resin veneers, apart from not changing color and losing their shine over time, is the material’s ability to reflect light more closely, similar to a natural tooth. The beautiful, natural appearance and longevity of these veneers are directly tied to the artistic skills, knowledge, and attention to detail of the ceramist, as well as the dentist.

Crowns

It is indicated on broken teeth, or with multiple or large filings when it is necessary to restore tooth strength, color, shape and function. Can be done in different materials which can provide more or less strength and natural appearance. The beautiful, natural real appearance and the longevity of this kind of work are directly related to the artistic skills, knowledge, and attention to details of the ceramist, as well as to the dentist. The downside is that it requires more time, higher costs and that if it breaks, it cannot be repaired.

Aesthetic Gum Surgery

This is a procedure where gum tissue can be added or removed to achieve the right balance between teeth and gums, creating a more symmetrical and pleasing smile. It’s used for teeth that seem small because they’re covered by too much gum, or for teeth that look long due to gum recession.

Orthodontics

Orthodontics provides the best solution for enhancing both the smile and the function of the masticatory system, achieved through the correct bite that harmonizes with the joints and muscles. However, when teeth alignment ignores function, there is a risk of subsequent shifting, and neglecting the use of retainers can be a doctor’s justification for not having integrated function. Unfortunately, this is the prevalent approach in modern dentistry.
When function is restored, aesthetics are always restored as well, but aesthetics can be improved without restoring function, leading to teeth shifting, TMJ disorders, and other problems related to bruxism
