Hollywood Smile

Hollywood Smile allows us to achieve a perfect smile by ensuring gum, tooth and lip harmony. With porcelain veneers, color differences, tooth fractures and tissue loss are eliminated. It is then aimed to eliminate the disproportions in the gums. Finally, there is the process of teeth whitening. When designing a Hollywood smile, factors such as the type of smile the person should have, gender, age, facial features, lips are taken into consideration.

Porcelain Lamina (Leaf Porcelain)

Lamina dental veneers are applied for color differences in teeth, tooth cracks and fractures, discoloration caused by filling. Compared to other applications, fewer teeth are cut. Sometimes it can be applied without cutting at all. Lamina porcelain is the material that provides the most natural appearance and reflects the light transmittance of the natural tooth. It is used for joining teeth with gaps between them, for those whose front teeth are worn and discolored, for the correction of crooked and crooked teeth, and for the replacement of broken or worn teeth. With good care, it can last for years.

Teeth Whitening (Bleaching)

It is done after yellowing of the teeth caused by various reasons. It allows the tooth to open 2-3 tons. While this procedure gives a very successful result after yellowing caused by smoking, tea, coffee consumption, it does not provide great success in yellowing caused by medications. Depending on the use, we can see the effect between 3 months and 4 years. It can be done in 2 different ways as Office Bleaching or Home Bleaching.

Porcelain Crown

Porcelain crown is the process of covering the tops of the person’s teeth with tooth-shaped materials in order to protect the teeth when the destruction and tissue loss is high for different reasons. When you want to change the form and color of the teeth, porcelain crown method is used if porcelain does not achieve the desired result.

Implant

Implants are screws made of titanium that are inserted into the jawbone after tooth loss. The tooth acts as a root. It does not damage the teeth next to it. It can be performed on individuals over 18 years of age who have completed their jaw and facial development. It is permanent.

Zirconium Veneer

It is a method applied to remove stains and decay on the teeth. It can also be applied to broken and crooked teeth. Suitable for all ages. The average duration is between 5-15 years. Zirconium veneers are available in two forms: with or without metal support. It has white color and light transmittance. The patient’s mouth impression is taken and prepared according to the tooth color. It is the type of veneer with the highest compatibility with the structure of natural teeth. Zirconium veneers may rarely cause pain during chewing and biting. If the coverings are placed incorrectly, they can cause falls.

Aesthetic Filling

Aesthetic filling is the process of designing a natural and aesthetic smile with the same composite material as the person’s own tooth color. When oral hygiene is not performed at an adequate level, it is a method used to return it to its former form in case of decay, fracture and abrasion. Aesthetic filling, which does not cause the uncomfortable appearance of black fillings, can also be applied for tooth lengthening and tooth shape change. The fact that the fillings are in the form of natural teeth in shape and color, that the filling borders are not obvious, and that the person cannot distinguish the filling from his/her own tooth are the main desired conditions in aesthetic filling. It is also long-lasting, depending on the person’s use.

Braces

Braces are aesthetic dental devices used to correct crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth. The wires attached to the teeth are made of metal or bonding material. Braces treatment is performed by orthodontists. How long it stays in the tooth depends on the person’s oral structure and the healing process. In general, it is suitable for all ages after 10 years.
