Five Types Of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Cosmetic dentistry has been around for multiple years. It has grown in popularity, however, over the past few years. It is also known that the dental industry is constantly evolving with the development at the cutting edge of technology. And the use of advanced equipment. Here are five of the common procedures you can receive today.
Whitening or whitening of teeth is understood to mean either the restoration or the lightening of the natural tooth color with the help of bleaching agents. These may include carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide) to remove tooth discoloration. When does bleaching help against discoloration? If color particles get into the enamel, they can no longer be removed by brushing your teeth and taking care of your teeth. Even professional teeth cleaning often no longer works. Teeth bleaching (or whitening), is the only way to regain the natural color of your teeth. Certain foods, such as red wine or coffee, are often responsible for the unsightly discoloration. In addition, taking certain iron and nitrate medications can lead to the accumulation of color pigments.
Veneers improve your smile by adding new teeth to your pre-existing teeth. Veneers are completely inconspicuous and in many cases an excellent high-quality alternative to more complex dentures – or to lengthy orthodontic treatment. The aim is, on the one hand, the cosmetic improvement of the teeth in the aesthetic zone: Tooth gaps or gaps are covered. Beautification of the tooth color for a radiant smile is achieved and any defects on the tooth surface, e.g. caused by teeth grinding or a tooth accident, are hidden. In addition to the aesthetic appearance, the focus is of course on durability and function and lasts many years.
Root Canal Treatment & Apicectomy
If revision treatment for a problem with a root canal is unsuccessful, an apicoectomy is the last resort to save the tooth. This surgical intervention is indicated if the root canal system cannot otherwise be adequately treated, if the root is so damaged. To do this, the dentist has to loosen the gums in the area of the root tip and expose part of the bone. Then the tip of the root and other inflamed or infected tissue are removed. Then the inside of the root must be cleaned from the tip and filled from there. After the procedure, the bone around the end of the root must heal again.
Very similar to a natural tooth, the dental implant is anchored in the jaw. For this purpose, a screw made of high-quality titanium or all-ceramic is inserted into the jaw. After the healing phase, during which it is possible to wear a provisional denture that is also aesthetically and functionally appealing, the artificial tooth root is firmly anchored in the jaw.
Tooth bondings are like a kind of transparent plaster that is applied to the surface of the tooth with a special adhesive. The material is not hard and firm, rather it is soft, extremely fine foils, the color of which corresponds to the natural tooth whiteness of the respective patient and therefore visually merges with the natural tooth. They can no longer be seen with the naked eye. Tooth bondings ensure natural-looking, much more even teeth whitening.
