Cosmetic Dental Treatment
1. Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that is used to make the surface of the teeth appear whiter. Although teeth whitening cannot turn the teeth brilliant white, it can be a very effective way of lightening the existing color, without causing any damage to the tooth’s surface.
The effects of teeth whitening are not permanent and can last anywhere from a few months to three years. The duration of the effects varies between individuals; however, in general, the effects do not last as long if a person stains their teeth through smoking or drinking tea, coffee, or red wine, for example.
In Europe and some other countries, only a qualified dental professional is allowed to carry out teeth whitening. In fact, when teeth whitening is performed in beauty salons by people with no dental qualifications, the procedure not only poses a risk to oral health but is also illegal.
2. Dental Laminates / Veneers
Dental laminate (Porcelain laminate which are known as Porcelain veneers) is a thin shell which is designed by tooth colored material based on the individual’s need. These shells are bonded to the front surface of the teeth in order to change their color, shape, size, or length and improve the appearance.
Porcelain laminate is made of different thin porcelain layers which are replaced by natural teeth enamel and a sticky layer. Unlike public perceptions, for making porcelain laminate, there is no need to scrape teeth and in the case of choosing the appropriate treatment methods by the special dentist, only some limit preparation needs for embedding laminates without any damage to natural teeth.
Alongside the beauty aspect, the correct laminate function is important, too and correct and strong attachment of natural teeth and porcelain laminate is essential. The dentist will use of resins that are sensitive to lights until the laminate be strong by flashing a special ray, after installation.
