Aesthetic dentistry

Aesthetic dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that seeks to improve the patient’s smile by modifying the shape, color and position of the teeth and gums.

To do this, it is necessary to perform a preliminary diagnosis of each case with which a treatment plan is carried out, which can combine different specialties such as orthodontics or periodontics, to achieve the desired goal.

There are several treatment options when it comes to improving the patient’s smile. Sometimes, the starting point is a smile design that can be tried directly in your mouth, without the need to touch the teeth beforehand, through which it will be possible to determine which option or options are suitable for you.

  • Tooth whitening: This treatment that can improve the tone of the tooth providing greater brightness. It is achieved by applying a product on the surface of the tooth for a certain time. It can be performed in office and / or at home, being, in both cases, controlled by a professional. The result will also depend on genetic factors and on the patient’s habits.
  • Composite veneers: These are thin layers of resin that are applied to the surface of the tooth. They generally do not require tooth preparation and are manually shaped in the mouth to improve the shape and color of the teeth.
  • Ceramic veneers: These are very thin sheets of porcelain that cover the outside of the tooth and that in most cases require minimal preparation of the tooth. They can correct alterations in shape, color and position of the teeth. They are made of more mechanically resistant to wear and tear material than composite, and it is a material that is more stable over time and does not vary in color.
  • Full-ceramic crowns: These are metal-free restorations that are used to cover the teeth around their entire perimeter, so they require previous preparation of the tooth.

Your professional will recommend the best personalized option for each case.
