Porcelain Laminates

If you are not satisfied with your teeth, consider having your teeth covered with porcelain laminates.

Made from porcelain, porcelain laminates mimics the teeth thoroughly; they are easy to clean and lightweight. Porcelain laminates can be used as a straightening method for crowded teeth, to correct protruding teeth, to close gaps, improve the color of teeth, and make lasting changes to your smile.

With porcelain laminates, you can achieve a natural look and restore a dazzling smile quickly.

Utilizing a revolutionary treatment that provides porcelain laminates to patients without any need for drilling whatsoever, we can use them to correct your embarrassing teeth problem without any enamel removal effectively.

This is the perfect treatment for those who wish to avoid pain and drilling.

To apply them, a thin layer on the surface of the tooth enamel is ground off. Then carefully taking data from your affected teeth or tooth, a porcelain facing is made. It is this thin porcelain shield that your dentist will then “stick” to the tooth with tooth-colored “glue” (composite cement).

The result is beautiful, radiant teeth, without having your teeth noticeably altered. Many celebrities and VIPs use this method to wow their audience. You too can now without fuss!

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained or have spaces between them. Even so-called perfect rows of teeth sometimes have minor defects: disturbing gaps between the teeth, chinks, or minor tooth decay. With bonding, they can be treated effectively and cheaply.

In dental bonding, tooth-colored materials are applied, or bonded, to the tooth surface, giving it a “like-new” appearance.

A significant advantage of bonding is that it is less invasive and does not affect healthy teeth, substance or enamel. That’s why this procedure can be performed without anesthesia.

The dentist first cleans the tooth surface. Then prepared the surface with a slightly acidic material – this preparatory step promotes the binding and hardening of the composite bonding material that will be applied later. After the preparation, the dentist applies the composite material to the tooth and shapes it using appropriate professional dental instruments.

Lastly, the composite material is hardened with UV or laser light and polished.

After such treatment, you can achieve a perfect smile and regain the peace of mind you lacked because of damaged teeth.

Dental Bleaching

White teeth do not just radiate a good deal of self-confidence; they usually make you look younger and attractive. With advancing age, stubborn discolorations develop on the teeth surface, which tends to draw negative stares that are embarrassing. Also, nicotine stains from smoking, prolonged drinking of coffee, black tea or red wine may lead to unsightly yellows or brown teeth staining. A discoloring effect can also develop from the use of certain drugs like tetracycline.

So what do you do to regain the coveted sparkling white teeth?

Whatever the cause, with our incredibly effective methods and safe active ingredients, we can now whiten your teeth in a flash! With a teeth bleaching, we can whiten your teeth by a few shades in one sitting without damaging your hard tooth substance.

Dental bleaching is harmless and very well tolerated by the enamel and gums since we adhere to the gentle and expert implementation of each step of the bleaching process.

Before use, it is important to exclude carious areas and leaking dental fillings to achieve the best result and protect your overall wellbeing. If dental defects are discovered, we will advise they are treated before whitening.

Ceramics Crowns

Aesthetic and functional tooth corrections can nowadays be implemented using ceramic crowns.

The all-ceramic crown today represents excellence in cosmetic dentistry and can hardly be distinguished from one’s teeth.

Ceramic crowns are prosthetic replacements that are permanently placed on the prepared teeth or dental implants to restore the lost function and aesthetics of teeth.

We can use them to restore beauty and function of a severely damaged tooth in which filling is no longer possible, when a tooth is weakened by large cavities, or in teeth that have suffered significant damage as a result of endodontic treatment or deterioration in prosthetic replacement.

For individuals with twisted or crooked teeth, the condition is best remedied with ceramics crowns. Crowns can be used to get rid of tooth discoloration, which is discolored especially by endodontic treatment.

Because we provide 100% metal-free, laser-graded and computer-milled ceramic crowns the perfect optimal edge density and non-irritation to the gums is assured. The material is biologically neutral, very well tolerated by mucous membranes and has near-natural hardness thus eliminating the fear of such crowns breaking.

Plus, the weight is almost identical to that of natural teeth, so you won’t feel like you’re carrying extra weight in your mouth.

Ceramics crowns can perfectly imitate the optical properties of natural teeth. Features such as translucency, opalescence, transparency and fluorescence are fully achieved with dental crowns made of ceramics. However, here is the trick – to achieve the desired results, you can count on the experience of our dentist or dental technician to help you choose the right crown best suited for your needs and case.
