We take care of your oral health and
Dr. Alvaro Medina and Dr. Ana Cabrera are in charge of the treatments that restore the patient’s comfort to eat and smile.
Nowadays, a beautiful smile is associated with health and well-being, which is why our professionals take care of satisfying, together, all these expectations of the patient.
The following are some of the Dental Aesthetic treatments that we perform:
We perform Smile Design for all our patients.
DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN (DSD)
With this tool we simulate the changes we want to make in a virtual model of our patient’s mouth in order to show it to them and test it in their mouth.
It is at this moment, through the test called Mock up, when the patient visualizes and the doctor evaluates how the final result will look in the patient’s mouth and we plan the execution of the treatment in the least possible number of visits.
They are small sheets of porcelain that cover the external surface of the tooth and require minimal preparation of the tooth.
They are among the so-called minimally invasive treatments since we work by means of adhesion to the tooth. They are able to correct dental malpositions and change the color and shape of the tooth without losing its naturalness.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry treatment, whose objective is to eliminate external stains caused by different reasons, such as tobacco, food and beverages that stain the tooth enamel.
First of all, the teeth are cleaned and then the gums are protected. Then a gel (hydrogen peroxide) is applied to the teeth. An LED or laser light makes the whitening work faster.
The approximate duration of a whitening session is usually 45 – 60 minutes.
In cases of generalized wear, it may be necessary to resort to a complete rehabilitation to restore the dental tissue that the patient has lost due to pathologies such as bruxism or gastrointestinal reflux or simply the wear that occurs in the teeth to a greater or lesser extent over time.
In these cases, it is common that problems occur in the temporomandibular joint responsible for the opening and closing of our mouth can also cause problems in speaking and chewing properly, even the appearance of wrinkles at the level of lips and nasolabial fold.
To correct these problems we perform a minimally invasive Vertical Dimension Augmentation, adding to the tooth, through adhesion, lithium disilicate inlays in posterior sectors and veneers in the anterior front. Thus recovering the correct shape and size of our teeth.
In this way we conserve the remaining tissue that the patient keeps and prevent further wear.
FIXED PROSTHESIS ON TOOTH
Although we are using less and less the so-called full veneer crowns, their use is still indicated for badly destroyed teeth, fixed bridges or replacement of old crowns.
They can be used to correct crowding, change the color of teeth and replace missing teeth.
