Cosmetic dentistry

Aesthetic fillings are recommended for people whose teeth are decayed, discoloured, worn down, irregularly germinated, or who have suffered a trauma to the teeth that has resulted in chipped teeth, etc. Aesthetic fillings on molars restore the ridges on the chewing surface, which are particularly important for chewing efficiency, for maintaining bite height and for protecting the teeth from wear and tear.

Nowadays, people want to have not only healthy teeth, but also beautiful teeth. A new field of aesthetic dentistry has emerged, combining art and science. Using the latest technologies and treatments, it is possible to create the ideal smile for most people.

We can help you if your teeth are decayed or worn down, if you have irregular tooth positions (gaps, crowding) or an ugly tooth shape, if you want whiter teeth or if you’ve suffered a dental trauma and your teeth are chipped etc.

The combination of composites and ceramics is suitable for restoring both the natural stiffness of the teeth and the strength of the teeth. For this reason, the modern approach to restorative dentistry has opened up the possibility of new solutions for applying pressure-distributing bonded porcelain restorations to the crown of the tooth, while preserving the bite force and the chewing function. The adhesive response of an anterior surface porcelain veneer to the tooth has been widely recognised and clinically validated. The ever-advancing bonded restoration technique has significantly expanded the initial range of applications of bonded porcelain restorations in restoring the anterior tooth line. It is the maintenance of maximum preservation of healthy tooth structure and vitality in teeth that need to be restored (cost reduction compared to traditional, more invasive prosthetic methods). Bonded porcelain restorations can also be used in more hazardous situations (worn, non-vital teeth or teeth with broken crowns).

Effective chewing of food requires the correct interaction between the front and back teeth and the temporomandibular joint.

The functional interaction of these parameters has a decisive influence on dental aesthetics. If the vertical relationship of the posterior teeth is low (e.g. due to inadequate restorations), then the lowering will be compensated for in the anterior/rear teeth or in the temporomandibular joint.

Abrasions occurring in the dentin or enamel (calcified biting margins) are the result of compensatory overcrowding in the anterior/lateral teeth at the “leading points”. Increased overcrowding in these contact areas can lead to fractures of anterior restorations or root fractures.
