Aesthetic dentistry is a branch that gives the lost or needed aesthetic appearance with various applications on teeth and gums.
Aesthetic dentists aim to bring the structure and harmony of teeth, gums, face and jaws to the best.
One of the important aesthetic details in our face is that our teeth are natural, white and properly aligned with aesthetic corrections. It is a fact that teeth that have a pleasant appearance and fulfill their essential function contribute positively to a person’s life.
Dental Aesthetics aims not only to make the person look nice and well-groomed, but also to perform the basic functions of their teeth in a healthy way.
Aesthetic dentistry is a mixture of science, technology and art. Its aim is to capture “Health and natural beauty”. Natural appearance is the most important thing for aesthetic teeth, dental aesthetics and aesthetic smiles.
They are porcelain leaves that adhere to the front faces of the teeth. It is one of the most conservative (protective) treatments that can be done. This is due to the fact that there is very little tissue removed from the tooth that veneers can be made. It is sufficient to remove an average of 0.3-0.7 mm of dental tissue. Then the veneers are prepared in the desired color and form and adhered. They are very successful aesthetically because they are very thin and do not contain metal. Laminate veneers have a unique ability that allows light to pass through, making the teeth they are applied look completely real. With this feature, it looks like a real tooth in flash and disco lights. (In these lights, the coatings with metal inside appear as black stains as if they were absent in the mouth).
The treatment process is short. In the first examination, a measurement is taken from the patient before the teeth are cut. With this model, a mock-up (proofing) application is made from a special material in the laboratory. The doctor and patient get the chance to reach a consensus on this 3D model. Thus, you will have the chance to see how you will be in 3 dimensions before your teeth are cut.
Then the teeth are prepared with a short and painless procedure and the impression is taken. Plastic temporary veneers made in the form and length decided by you and your physician are adhered. These are also important in terms of protecting your teeth until the porcelain veneers arrive. At the same time, these temporaries act as a second 3D model for the necessary corrections. The harmony of the teeth with the face is checked, the ideal smile suitable for the face is determined with the necessary abrasion and additions. Porcelain veneers are prepared and adhered in the laboratory according to this model.
Although porcelain veneers are very thin, they are very resistant to breakage when adhered. The bonding process takes place with a special method (bonding resin) and it is not possible to separate the laminate veneer from the tooth after it is adhered. However, they can be removed by abrasion like natural teeth.
Laminas cannot be distinguished from natural teeth by requiring minimum preparation, not being dyed with agents such as cigarettes, tea, coffee, and light transmission. Therefore, it has become the most ideal aesthetic treatment method applied today.
Full Porcelain Aesthetic Crowns Without Metal Support
The most basic rule of making an aesthetic tooth is that the tooth we make is the closest to nature. So we can also say,
Let’s make such a tooth that it looks natural despite all its flawlessness and it is not clear that it is artificial.
Porcelain teeth have been a preferred material in dentistry for a long time due to their proximity to natural structure and durability.
However, when compared to natural teeth and metal-supported porcelains, light transmittance, color formation, opacity in appearance, color changes in the gums, etc. It has been observed that it has disadvantages during the long implementation years and solutions have been sought for this problem. The metal substructure under the ceramic superstructure was seen as the reason for these disadvantages and instead, new alternatives that were similarly robust but more aesthetic were produced.
Ceramics without metal support have begun to be used as a result of this search.
Although many things affect the appearance of crowns, the most important is their reaction to light. Natural teeth are translucent. As a result, depth and vitality appear in the tooth. Due to the light transmission properties of porcelain crowns without metal support, their depth and vitality are more, so that the closest visual results to natural teeth are obtained.
