Applications made on the gums are called pink aesthetics.
In the treatments applied in the aesthetic field of dentistry, the aim is to provide a perfect and aesthetic smile.
For the perfect smile, gum aesthetics are extremely important.
In the case of gum aesthetics, operation methods are used according to the presence of the problem.
With laser and botox, you can change your smile without touching your teeth.
Orthodontics Dentofacial Orthopedics, as the specialty is called, is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, preventiontreatment of dentalfacial irregularities.
OrthodontistThe technical term for these problems is “malocclusion,” which means “bad bite.” The practice of orthodontics requires professional skill in the design, application and control of corrective appliances (braces) to bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment and achieve facial balance.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is an Orthodontist?
An Orthodontist is a highly trained specialist who has not only graduated as a dental surgeon but has returned to University for post-graduate training on a full-time basis. Post-graduate training lasts a minimum of 24 consecutive months and often will last in excess of 36 – 48 months for those dedicated to extensive research projects. Your orthodontist will work with your dentist to provide you with the best treatment plan to suit your needs.
Why Choose an Orthodontist?
Orthodontists are the most hiOrthodontistghly trained specialists in the field of orthodontics. They are trained in a wide range of techniques and limit their practice exclusively to orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. They are therefore in the best position to provide optimal care to treat orthodontic problems.
Orthodontics and Children
At what age should my child first see an Orthodontist?
The Orthodontists authoroties recommends that all children have an orthodontic screening no later than age 7.
Why screen by age 7?
The posterior occlusion (bite) is established when the first 6-year permanent molars erupt. At that time, one can evaluate the antero-Orthodontistposterior and transverse relationships of the occlusion, as well as discover any abnormal shifting of the lower jaw during function. Incisors have begun to erupt and problems can be detected such as crowding, adverse habits, overbites, openbites, and some facial asymmetries. For some, a timely screening will lead to significant treatment benefits; for some, an immediate benefit is a parent’s peace of mind.
What are the benefits of early treatment?
For those patients who have clear indications for early intervention, early treatment presents the opportunity to:
It is one of the aims of dentistry to restore lost tooth tissue, aesthetics and function, to provide biological harmony. Porcelain is the most used restorative material with its aesthetic, tissue-friendly and appropriate physical properties. However, metal-supported porcelains developed to strengthen the physical properties of porcelain, the presence of metal infrastructure It does not have sufficient aesthetic and biological compatibility as porcelains without metal support.
It is the technique of bonding a specially prepared porcelain layer in nail thickness, desired color, size and form to the front face of the tooth. In this method, unlike porcelain crown application, healthy teeth are not prepared much. Instead, a very thin tooth layer is removed only from the front of the tooth and the prepared porcelain lamina is adhered to the front of the tooth with special bonding techniques.
Scope of application:
With this technique called ‘laminate veneers’, only the front surfaces of our teeth are removed less than the amount of material taken in a filling and to make perfect color and texture compatible applications.
When the destruction of the teeth is excessive, the entire tooth is covered with a porcelain crown, porcelain crowns can be full porcelain or metal supported. Full porcelain crowns look more aesthetic and natural than metal-supported porcelains.
How are aesthetic fillings made? Aesthetic fillings are placed in prepared cavities layer by layer and each layer is cured with a special light. When this process is finished, the aesthetic fillings are shaped and corrected according to the tooth. All these processes take longer than amalgam filling. However, it is at least twice as expensive as amalgam. The duration of aesthetic fillings in the mouth is 7-10 years, which is close to the life of amalgam. However, amalgam is in favor of very large fillings.
Advantages and disadvantages: The biggest advantage of these fillings is their aesthetics. In addition, since these fillings are well connected to the teeth, they support the dental tissues and prevent fractures and heat. Composites can be used not only to restore caries, but also for their cosmetic effects by changing the color and shape of teeth. The most important disadvantage is the post-procedure sensitivity. The colors of the fillings may change slightly with coloring foods such as coffee and tea.
Zirconium crowns and bridges use zirconium, which is a white material instead of metal, as the substructure. Aesthetically beautiful, durable crowns and bridges are obtained by processing porcelain on it.
