COSMETIC DENTISTRY

Aesthetic Restorations

Beautiful smile does not only consist of pearly white and well-formed teeth. Cosmetic demands have increased in recent years, and it is the dentist's responsibility to clearly analyze the expectations of their patients, but also to compose those in such way so as lead to an aesthetically pleasant result, harmoniously incorporated with the rest of the face.

The overall treatment of the dental patient is essential in order to achieve an excellent aesthetic result, and this is a basic principle of our practice.

dental examination

The aesthetic analysis in dentistry is the methodology by which the dentist analyzes all the parameters and elements that are gathered from the clinical examination of the patient, the x-rays, plaster casts and highlights the potential disharmony in the smile, in color, the position and teeth dimensions, as well as to the correct or excessive exposure of the gingival tissues.

All the above mentioned parameters are evaluated, so much as to dynamics (the smile) as well as to the resting position of the jaw bone.

The aesthetic analysis is an essential step in every cosmetic intervention that takes place in our practice. The use of all information from the aesthetic analysis has a common denominator: the output of the final result must restore or maintain harmony throughout the face.

Although the field of aesthetics has a subjective character, the aesthetic analysis is designed for the final desired outcome based on specific rules and proportions and even pre-invasive, that is, before any therapeutic action begins.
The ideal analogy is the proportion between the individual elements that constitute a pretty image, a nice face, a well-shaped idem, a charming smile and this is applied from the arts in the classic era, up to today in industrial designs, in architecture and so on.

Thus, a highly aesthetic result is achieved in a predictable and sure manner, which will satisfy the most stringent aesthetic requirements. The final aesthetic effect is designed and presented to the patient either externally on models made from the mouth or intraorally in elastic casts. These casts are constructed on the basis of the proposed design and the patient places them on his teeth and can see the end result before any therapeutic action begins.
Thus, the patient immediately understands the proposed shape and size of the teeth, makes possible modifications, and based on the final picture in the models or in the casts, the treatment plan is drawn up and carried out in all subsequent stages.

In other words, the patient knows the end result from the beginning before any treatment is started.

Some of the basic techniques applied in our practice in order to achieve a predictable aesthetic result are diagnostic wax, transient state restorations, and diagnostic and surgical casts.

All the individual areas of aesthetic dentistry, from the aesthetic biomaterials to the aesthetic surgery of soft and hard tissues of the mouth, should maintain or restore the ideal proportion to the face, smile and teeth and be within the boundaries defined by tissue biology .

In Medicine, as in nature, beauty is identified with harmony.

Aesthetic Smile Analysis

A beautiful smile builds up our confidence and boosts our personality. Cosmetic dentistry can perform miracles. It consists of a range of techniques in order to ensure a beautiful smile, which is a vital element to a successful personal and professional life.

Our main concern is to design the smile according to our patient’s requirements, the possibilities in each case, the long-term preservation of the end result and the minimal interference to the dental tissues.

After taking into account several factors, such as the rule of proportion, the facial symmetries, the age and muscle movements, we then move onto the designing of your smile. Our goal is the ultimate result to give a sense of naturalness that fits your character and personality. To us, our patient’s opinion is very important, this is why we discuss together about the shape, size, position and color of your teeth, but also how they are surrounded by soft tissues, the gums. The degree of contrasts of these elements gives out the image of youthfulness, tranquility, serenity, liveliness, and above all beauty.

We propose to our patients a range of alternative solutions using incident photographs, software training, wax specimens of their casts so as to choose together the technique which best suits them. By only making a joint decision, we can then proceed to the construction of permanent work.
