Cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever before. Today we are all looking for a beautiful smile that reflects a healthy life and social position.
Our smile is one of the first things we show about us, and makes us feel comfortable and confident with ourselves in front of other people.
Luckily today there are many ways to achieve that smile that we want for us, thanks to all the many advances in the aesthetic dental treatments.
In Barcelona you can find the latest techniques and great professionals to perform them.
Aesthetic dental procedures respond to specific needs of every patient.
One of the most common problems is the alignment of the teeth, which not only is part of a beautiful smile, but it is also important to have a good dental health overall. To tackle this problem today there are different procedures:
Orthodontic treatments and Invisalign.
Previously, procedures used to be visible, invasive, and painful. Although today metal braces are still used and might be used in some cases according to what the specialist determines, the science and technique have improved so much that invisible orthodontics are a reality.
Invisalign is the most popular choice for invisible orthodontics on the market. These orthodontics are tailored to every patient (just like the regular metal braces), and to achieve that alignment correctly.
The set of Invisalign aligners are adjusted weekly until you reach the smile you were looking for.
Dental veneers are thin covers that adhere to teeth to give them a more classically shaped look.
Typically manufactured, dental veneers are made individually for each patient to resemble one’s natural teeth. They are used in case that there is a missing tooth or gap between two teeth, cracked or damaged enamel, or a tooth discoloration.
There are different types of veneers: porcelain, composite or micro veneers, and it will be the specialist who should determine which one would be the best for each case and patient, as each is designed to tackle different situations.
A few important considerations before getting dental veneers are having healthy teeth and gums. Also remember to share with your dentist if you clench or grind your teeth since that might make the veneers to chip or break.
We all know that having white teeth is a synonym of an attractive and healthy smile. As much as there are currently products and domestic treatments that promise to give us that white color, the best and safest way to “bleach” our teeth is when a professional does it.
A big reason to go to your dentist instead of buying an at home treatment is because any whitening procedure should only be done after our teeth have been professionally cleaned and there is no plaque or tartar on our teeth and gums.
With the daily use of our teeth, eating and chewing and external factors like drinking coffee or tea or smoking, our teeth can lose their color and tend to become more orange or simply darker. This can be solved with teeth whitening, but it not only can give us back our original teeth color, it can also make it lighter to meet our aesthetic wishes.
We should nevertheless remember that although the results might last a few months they are only temporary and we should apply the treatment again at some point if we want to maintain a specific teeth color.
Regardless of the aesthetic dental treatments we are interested in, the most important thing is to find a dental clinic that we feel comfortable with to trust in them with our dental health and appearance.
