Digital Smile Design

A perfect smile for a perfect life

Smile on the other hand betrays your age and expresses your inner character. Esthetic Dentistry became part of our contemporary generation. Esthetics is an important factor in many peoples lives and demands are dramatically increasing every day. Therefore dentistry found an innovative way to provide the best possible result by taking under consideration several factors such as facial parameters as well as functional and personal preferences of the patient. Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a tool that helps the dentist (smile designer) use all the above factors along with a series of intraoral and extraoral photographs or videos to create the final desired smile that corresponds to the patients needs/wills and of course follows the golden guidelines to reach an “esthetic smile”.

DSD is taking several criteria like age, facial characteristics, patient’s desire and expectations under consideration and tries to execute the best fitted smile outcome to reflects each personality.

So its time for you to test yourself. Evaluate you smile, and find what you don’t like. This will definitely help your dentist to create the best possible outcome that will fulfill your personal expectations. Let your dentist take you to the “next level”.

Preventive Dentistry

Prevent your teeth from damage over time

Nowadays A to Z importance is to preserve teeth. This starts from very young age and continues though years. New generation dentistry strongly believes on prevention that can be achieved by regular hygienic visits which can detect and restore at an early stage. These visits contribute to prevent any undesired bacterial invasion (cavities) and preserve the vital nature of teeth.

“It takes two to tango” and so does preventive dentistry. Patient’s devotion to the directions plus dentist’s services can only achieve prevention.

Preventive dentistry consists of several dental procedures such as regular scaling and polishing (teeth cleaning), series of intraoral x-rays, brushing techniques demonstration, fluoride application and last but not least preventive sealants.

Techniques

  • Scaling and polishing: regular check ups approximately every 6 mouths depending on the patient’s needs
  • Intraoral X-rays: show the interproximal spaces between teeth. These areas can be easily decayed due to poor oral hygiene.Usually are repeated every 1,5 – 2years

  • Brushing technique: each patient’s oral needs are different and therefore requires different brushing approach.
  • Fluoride application: fluoride is a substance that helps the tooth to become stronger by bonding on the tooth’s structure. It can be applied as a gel or paste. Usually is applied every 4-6 months. Uncontrolled use of fluoride can reach undesirable result called as fluorosis.
  • Preventive Sealants: is a preventive filling and without removing any tooth structure it covers the fissures of mainly posterior teeth to prevent any occlusal cavities

“Hand to hand” work though the years can achieve an outstanding and enviable results that you will be proud of.

Endodontic Therapy

Root Canal Treatment

Information you need to know

Root canal treatment is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury. The aim of the treatment is to remove any infection that may be present in the root canal. The root canal is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection.

The tooth will be filled with a special material and sealed using either a dental filling or a dental crown.

Material

Use highly aesthetic material to ensure that the restoration is very natural looking, comfortable and long lasting.

Bleaching Treatment (Teeth Whitening)

Information you need to know

Bleaching is the procedure that lightens the existing tooth colour. The result gives the sense of hygienic clean and healthy result. It makes people look younger and it can easily boost their confidence.

  • Performed or administered by a dental professional

External Bleaching Techniques

Office Bleaching Technique

IT is simple and fast one visit procedure that consists up to 4 cycles of bleaching material application that is activated by using a UV light during each cycle. During this procedure the first thing to do is to isolated the soft tissues so only the hard tissues (teeth) can be showed. The bleaching material is applied all over the fontal teeth surfaces. The approximately working time is an hour following by 5 min fluoride application to relieve the possible teeth post treatment sensitivity.

Home Bleaching Technique

Is an also a simple procedure where the dentist take an upper and lower impressions that are used afterwards to fabricate the bleaching custom made trays. These trays are then given to the patient that are going to be used as a “host” for the bleaching material always after the dentist instructions and demonstration. The bleaching gel is stronger and tends to be more effective. Patient is recommended to use these trays from an hour up to the whole night during sleep. The procedure it usually takes 7 to 30 days.

Combination of bleaching techniques

This may also be known as “power” teeth bleaching. Here, the home and office teeth whitening treatments are used in combination to obtain the desired result. The home bleaching stage may occur before or after office treatment, depending on the type of product used.

Internal Bleaching Technique

Is a very easy and painless procedure that is only be used by the dentist on a discoloured endodontically treated tooth. The gel of the bleaching material is placed inside the tooth. During this procedure the dentist drills on the posterior part on the tooth an access hole where it can reach the endodontic material filled the root canal and be able to remove approximately 0.5-1mm and applied the bleaching material. Then the tooth access hole is covered by a temporary filling. The material stays there approximately for a week and afterwards is been evaluated by the dentist. In case that the result is  not the desired one the procedure may repeated. When the tooth reach the desired shade tone then the tooth is restored closing the access hole by composite and sometime for even higher esthetic results a ceramic veneer may be recommended. Occasionally, internal bleaching needs to be combined with other whitening techniques to achieve the desired effect.

Periodontal Therapy
