There are various restorative options which we can consider to replace a broken edge, improve tooth proportions & forms or to redesign your smile completely. Whatever the treatment you require, we will help you find the most conservative and effective solution for your functional and aesthetic needs.
Resin composites are made of a fine glass-ceramic powder mixed with a small amount of light-curing resin, to allow the material to be applied, shaped and hardened directly on the tooth, whose surface has been previously treated with a special adhesive system. The latest composite generation offers a wear resistance similar to natural enamel, a range of shades which fit any tooth color and excellent long-term colour stability
Porcelain veneers are thin restorations which replace enamel on the buccal surface of anterior teeth. They allow major tooth color & shape corrections to be performed with minimal tissue sacrifice or risk for the vitality of the tooth. Another advantage of porcelain veneers is the absence of framework, which allows for optimal light transmission and therefore superb aesthetic results. Veneers are however to be placed mainly on vital, non or only slightly discoloured teeth.
Full ceramic crowns
When teeth are more severely decayed due to existing restorations, carious diseases or wear and erosion, a full tooth coverage might be necessary. Most anterior crowns are made today of mere ceramic. According to functional parameters and the remaining hard tissue conditions (amount and color), different systems can be used in order to maximize restoration strength and aesthetics
Tooth coloured materials are nowadays applied on posterior teeth, either in the form of direct composites, inlays or onlays for larger decays and also full crowns. The office specializes in the replacement of metal fillings by tooth colored restorations.
