A smile is an essential element that affects personal attractiveness and our social relationships. An increasing number of patients are becoming concerned about having not only a healthy mouth, but also a beautiful smile.
Aesthetic dentistry is a branch of odontology that focuses on treating changes in teeth shape, colour, position and pathologies.
At Platón Dental, we have the latest technology and use techniques, such as teeth whitening, aesthetic fillings, veneers and orthodontic treatments, to give our patients back their beautiful smile.
How can we improve your smile?
- Tooth decay treatment
Tooth decay is one of the main oral health problems. It destroys dental tissue and can lead to tooth loss.
Restorative dentistry helps us to prevent, stop and cure tooth decay, regardless of the extent of tooth tissue destroyed.
Minimally invasive techniques are now available that aesthetically reconstruct tooth tissue. The treatment blends in with the adjacent teeth and is long-lasting.
Teeth whitening is the least invasive treatment used by patients who want to restore the natural colour of their teeth for aesthetical reasons.
The technique consists of clinically applying an oxidizing gel onto the surface of the teeth. The gel is activated by light and takes the teeth several tones closer to their natural colour.
Dental veneers is a type of restoration that is carried out on teeth. Veneers are small laminates that are stuck to the front teeth.
The treatment is mainly aesthetical, giving patients back their beautiful smile.
The most common examples are:
– Covering up tooth fractures
– Covering up interdental spaces
– Correcting the shape of teeth
– Teething whitening
Dental crowns are both an aesthetical treatment, as they visually substitute patients’ natural teeth, and a functional treatment, unlike veneers, as they strengthen the teeth. So not only do crowns make teeth more attractive, but they also become a part of more ‘useful’ teeth.
They are more commonly used on the more hidden back teeth, such as the premolars and molars, as they are the ones most used for chewing. Because of that, they are more exposed to erosion and need greater firmness.
Dental crowns can be made from different materials, although the most commonly used are metal-porcelain, porcelain and zirconia.
