The gap between the upper one, discoloration or crooked teeth is very often the reason why we are ashamed to smile.On International Day of Smile, which this year falls on October 7, dentists have good news for patients – these defects can be easily and quickly eliminated.A quick way to improve tooth aesthetics is the use of porcelain veneers.They allow you to change the shape, size and color of your teeth.Thanks to them, it is also possible to correct small bite defects, such as displacement, deflection or diastema, i.e. a gap between the upper ones.
In some cases, you can even avoid orthodontic treatment.- Veneers are thin, porcelain overlays that are attached to the surfaces prepared for this tooth.The condition of using this method is the lack of large fillings in the teeth.The entire procedure is spread over 3 – 4 treatments and is completely painless.
A beautiful smile in 30 minutes
A composite material is sometimes used to patch smaller gaps or to give broken or distorted teeth a nice appearance.Typically, light-curing composites are used to fill cavities.However, in some cases, this material can be used for aesthetic tooth restoration.- In the dental office there are different shades of composites available, thanks to which the beautified tooth does not stand out from the others .The treatment is short, takes about 30 minutes and usually does not need to be repeated.However, it can not be carried out in a person with badly damaged or weakened teeth.Then it is recommended to make porcelain crowns.
You want to have a white smile – avoid red wine
A more beautiful and healthier smile can also be obtained by using a whitening gel.In the dental office, he is applied to cleansed teeth.Very often, the effect of this treatment is visible after the first visit.Slight longer for a snow-white smile can wait people whose teeth have a shade of gray.This method is completely safe and does not affect the structure of the tooth in any way.- Ingredients of the gel penetrate deep into the dental tubules.When they get inside the tooth, compounds that cause discoloration oxidize.
Discoloration is most often the result of inadequate oral hygiene and smoking, drinking coffee, tea, red wine and eating foods containing large amounts of dyes, such as cherries and blueberries.Keep away from them for a few days after the procedure.
Whitening during sleep
Bleaching gel, although with a lower concentration of active substances, can also be used at home.Earlier, however, it is necessary to visit a dentist, who is made of individually matched dental pads.At home, the patient applies a gel to them and puts them on all night.- The whole whitening process takes about 8-10 nights, and the first effects are noticeable on the first morning.Color stabilization lasts another 2 weeks.If a person does not smoke, he will be able to enjoy a white smile for up to 5 years.
Whitening toothpastes do not give such effective effects.They only remove plaque from coffee or cigarettes, giving the impression of lightening teeth.They should not be used for a long period of time, as the abrasive particles contained in them can affect the enamel.Sludge and tartar should be regularly removed in the dental hygienist office, which has specialist equipment, includingultrasounds, and preparations allowing to thoroughly clean the tooth surfaces.It is recommended that you visit a dental hygienist at least once every 6 months.Such visits not only improve the aesthetics of teeth, but also protect against gum disease, which over time can lead to tooth loss.
