Porcelain Veneers
In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. The advantages of using a veneer to restore a tooth are many. Very good aesthetics can be obtained, with minimal tooth preparation (i.e. drilling). Normally a reduction of around 0,5 mm is required for a porcelain veneer on a labial tooth surface.

Veneers may be used cosmetically to resurface teeth such as to make them appear straighter and possess a more aesthetically pleasing alignment. This may be a quick way to improve the appearance of malposed teeth without need to use orthodontics. However, the amount of malposition of the teeth may be such that veneers alone may not be enough to correct the esthetic imbalance. Instead, orthodontics would need to be used, or orthodontics combined with veneers.

White fillings
Tooth decay is one of the most common illnesses affecting people in the developed world. It can take smile off any face! It is caused by plague formed on the surface of the tooth caused by bacteria.

Tooth decay doesn’t always hurt but it must be alleviated. That means it has to be discovered first. That is why regular check-ups at dentist are essential.

Up to 80% of tooth decay can be discovered by bitewing(X-ray method).This or other method called Diagnodent (laser based) is used by our dentists. It can show any damage to enamel even between the teeth or underneath the fillings.

An Intra-oral camera is used in our clinic so the client can see what is going on inside their mouth while any procedure is being done (of course this is optional). This way client is more able to decide if the procedure is really needed or to check the results.





Dental restorations made using ultra hi-tech computer technology (CAD/CAM)

The CEREC® method (this is the world's first and only chair side CAD/CAM restorative procedure): first of all, the dentist examines the tooth and determines the appropriate treatment. It could be a simple filling, an in-lay or a full crown, depending on how much healthy tooth structure is remaining. Then he/she takes an optical impression of the prepared tooth by using a camera. Next, the specific software takes the digital picture and converts it into a 3D virtual model on the computer screen. After that, the restoration design data is sent to a separate milling machine in the office. A ceramic block that matches your tooth shade is placed in the milling machine. About 10-20 minutes later, your all-ceramic, tooth-colored restoration is finished and ready to bond in place.

Cerec Before and After

CEREC® is the world's only system for the fabrication of all ceramic dental restorations in one office visit. With CEREC® at your dentist's side, you can be in and out in a single visit with a permanent, all ceramic crown, onlay, or veneer!

Teeth Whitening
Whitening is the most commonly prescribed cosmetic dental procedure. While many whitening options are now available, dentist-supervised treatments remain the recommended procedures for lightening discolored teeth.

More and more people are not satisfied with colour of their teeth. It’s not about looking like a celebrity anymore, customers these days think about teeth whitening as a part of standard dental care.  Cigarettes, coffee, wine, some kinds of food  or drugs are to blame for off colour or yellowish stained teeth.

Professional depuration (teeth cleaning)  can often help. Our Dentist will clean off all pigmentation formed on the surface of teeth by special rotating tools or by ultrasound or by Air Flow machine. Your hygienist will then instruct you how to look after your teeth going forward.

Professional teeth whitening is based on use of up to 35% peroxide or cerbamide peroxide. Gums are protected by special silicone. This procedure might take 1 or 2 hrs.

The use of a  Rembrant lamp and its blue light  multiply the effect of peroxide.
