What is dental aesthetics and smile design?

Dental aesthetics are a set of treatments that allow us to improve your smile, making you like smiling more.

The dental aesthetic treatments that we perform at Ondarreta Dental Clinic are minimally invasive, which means that we minimally manipulate the tooth to perform the treatment, giving rise to very natural and organic results.

In addition, through digital technology and "mock up" you will be able to see the design of your smile for yourself before starting the treatment. A perfect, and above all, natural smile is possible.

There are different types of treatments to improve your smile. Each one has to be indicated by our specialist and individualized for each patient:

– Teeth whitening (in the clinic and at home).

– Ceramic and composite veneers.

– Closing of black spaces - embrasures - between the teeth and gums.

– Closure of diastemas -separation between teeth-.

Teeth whitening | Dental aesthetics in Ondarreta

Teeth whitening allows you to achieve a notable improvement in the color of your teeth, lightening their tone and giving them a whiter and brighter appearance. They are indicated for those patients who notice their teeth dark due to repeated consumption of coffee, tobacco, red wine, etc., cases of staining due to medications or simply for those patients who want to show off a movie-like smile.

Teeth whitening is not an abrasive treatment for the tooth as long as quality whitening products are used and applied in an appropriate and controlled manner by a qualified professional. That is why it is important to obtain prior advice for each case and avoid any product or treatment on the market, supposedly whitening and with instant and magical action.

In general, there are 2 types of whitening: those that are performed in the office and those that can be done at home. Treatments performed in the office usually require 1 or 2 sessions, and treatments performed at home require more sessions and are performed through the use of splints.

As it is an aesthetic treatment, it is very important to have good oral health before performing it, and it is contraindicated in patients who have untreated pathology.

Dental veneers in Ondarreta

Dental veneers are very thin sheets of composite or ceramic designed in a personalized way for each patient that are placed on the tooth to improve its appearance and give it a more beautiful aesthetic. Nowadays, and thanks to advances in dentistry, the placement of veneers does not always involve carving - lowering - the tooth, but rather through the application of minimally invasive dentistry techniques, the surface is only slightly prepared to be able to adhere the veneer properly. more effective.

The objective of veneers is to improve the aesthetics of the smile, creating natural smiles according to each person.

There are two main types of veneers depending on the material they are made from:

Composite veneers which can be done directly in the mouth in one or two sessions.

ceramic veneers which are carried out in a minimum of 2 sessions because it requires personalized manufacturing in a laboratory.

All the materials we use at Clínica Dental Ondarreta meet the highest quality standards and we work with the best laboratories.

Closure of black spaces and diastemas

Embrasures: black spaces between the gums and teeth. Sometimes small black spaces appear between the bases of the teeth due to gum recession, usually caused by periodontal disease. Generally, they are very annoying because food is usually packed in them and because they are not aesthetically pleasing. These spaces, after periodontal treatment and through minimally invasive dentistry, can be filled in a healthy, aesthetic and simple way, thus improving the aesthetics and functionality of the mouth.

Through the mock-up test you will be able to see how it will look before starting the treatment.

Diastemas: Sometimes there are spaces or separations between teeth naturally. These spaces are called diastemas and sometimes they may not be aesthetic. Through minimally invasive dentistry and without harming your natural tooth, they can be sealed by adding dental materials, resulting in a harmonious, natural, beautiful tooth without spaces and, above all, respecting the proportionality and harmony of your smile.

They are distinguished in the following:

Porcelain veneers are designed in dental laboratories, are fixed to the front part of the teeth using a special resin, covering the piece and offering a new appearance to the patients' teeth.

Composite veneers are a type of direct reconstruction what the dentist does on the damaged tooth. The dentist models layer by layer by layering resins or composites.

It is not recommended, since The effect of Teeth Whitening occurs on the natural enamel of the teeth and not in the material of the veneers.

Patients with porcelain or composite veneers, if they want to maintain optimal dental aesthetics, must avoid breaking hard things with your mouth, bite certain objects and be more careful with your oral health in general.

Additionally, composite veneers can be easily repaired, but in the case of porcelain veneers, they require an overnight release to protect the treatment.

It is a very common mistake to believe that this type of treatment is repeated continuously. In reality, porcelain veneers last, on average, between 15-20 years without suffering wear or losing its color. Even so, it will depend on the patient's habits (continued consumption of tobacco, coffee, tea...).

It is generally carried out in one or two sessions of less than 4 hours. Composite veneers are a painless and non-invasive technique for the teeth.

In short, dental veneers are a Dental Aesthetic treatment consisting of layer fixation on top of a damaged tooth, as if they were false nails, to then outline each model and achieve optimal dental aesthetics. They may be porcelain or composite.
