There are some common ways in cosmetic dentistry to correct the smile design, including Inlays and Onlays, bonding, laminate, teeth whitening, and implant.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays or Onlays are the intermediates between the filling and dental crown. In cases where there is not enough tooth density to support the dental filling and at the same time, the tooth is not severely damaged, Inlays and Onlays are used. By having good oral hygiene, their duration is relatively long. It can be made either directly or indirectly. The direct form is done in emergency dental clinic and is made using resin composite. The indirect one is made in the laboratory and can be made of ceramic gold.
There are several causes of teeth discoloration, for example, eating teeth-staining food and drinks, antibiotics, tobacco, age increasing, regular drinking tea and coffee, and so on. When the color of the teeth changes over time, it influences self-esteem. One of the most basic dentistry techniques is teeth whitening which helps in building self-confidence and improves smiles. Intense and deep stains are eliminated only by specialized methods. Home-made products do not have enough penetration to remove deep stains. A specialized teeth whitening method is the best treatment that has the best result in less time.
Dental veneersare used to restoring cosmetic problems such as discoloration, fractures, filling the gap between the teeth, and so on. The porcelain veneers is a kind of layer on the teeth that makes the teeth look beautiful in color and shape and improve smiles. The dental veneers are made of ceramic and composite. There is no need for tooth shaving in dental laminate. One of the advantages of dental laminate is that the tooth retains its natural shape and is not damaged.
Dental bonding is a process in which the composite is used to restore tooth decay and cracked teeth, hardened by a special light and eventually adhered to the teeth, these steps are performed in one session and are one of the lowest costly methods. It is restorative.
A dental implant is a type of titanium base compatible with body cells. Dental implants are used as a suitable and permanent replacement for one or more missing teeth. After choosing the type of implant, the dentist inserts a metal pin (Fixture) into the jawbone, depending on the patient’s condition. The prosthesis which is placed on the fixture is different and may be fixed or removable. After the dentist inserts the implant into the jawbone, the jawbone adheres to the implant.
