In addition to lifelong dental health, a beautiful smile is a personal concern for us. For this reason, our work is also based on the highest aesthetic standards, regardless of whether it is the teeth themselves or the surrounding gums. Both contribute to a harmonious smile.
Even in adulthood, malpositioned teeth can be corrected at any time. What is particularly nice is that today we can make use of invisible helpers. Transparent aligners are the magic word when it comes to invisible braces.
The conventional way of straightening front teeth was a lengthy, costly, and visually unappealing orthodontic treatment. One alternative has been the treatment with crowns, which may involve unnecessary grinding of healthy tooth structure. A second option is a treatment with veneers, which are only of an optical nature. So if teeth are misaligned, only orthodontics can provide lasting help. With barely visible braces, we can show you a way to gently realign your teeth.
The most modern orthodontic method works with transparent splints, the so-called aligners. For successful therapy, the dental situation is first thoroughly examined. Then we scan your teeth with a special high-performance scanner. The annoying impressions are a thing of the past. We immediately see your situation on the screen in 3D and can immediately simulate a possible result. The scan is now the basis for planning. On this basis, several transparent, thin and therefore hardly visible aligners are created. These are changed every one to two weeks. In just a few months, you can achieve your goal of beautiful and straight teeth with this method. Dr. Mortazavi is a certified Invisalign user.
There are many products and techniques available for patients who want to achieve a brighter smile, and with so many options available, it can be difficult to choose the method that is right for you. The best way to begin any teeth-whitening regimen is to schedule an appointment and talk to your doctor about the differences between in-office professional whitening and at-home whitening.
Irregular tooth surfaces, teeth that are too far apart or too dark – there are many reasons why you want to beautify your own smile. So-called veneers (wafer-thin, ceramic veneers) are then a safe and effective solution.
By the way: if correctly indicated and handled, veneers are among the most durable forms of restoration for teeth.
Since veneers are made very thin, the tooth only has to be ground minimally – sometimes only approx. 0.7 mm, or sometimes not at all – on the front side. The procedure can therefore be described as very gentle on the teeth.
Basically, we apply the principle of biomimetics to ceramic restorations. This means that the natural, intact tooth is not only copied optically, but also in its function, mechanics and biology. The tooth regains its bio-mechanical properties through a special bonding technique when the veneers are inserted.
An all-ceramic crown is always the solution when the loss of substance of the tooth is so great that the occlusal surface has to be redesigned. The crown is placed on the remaining tooth like a coping and fixed in place.
Aesthetic gum correction
Not only the teeth, but also the gums are responsible for a harmonious facial expression. With a plastic-aesthetic gum correction we can make your smile even brighter.
Gum aesthetics consider the appearance and course of the gums in relation to the teeth. Too much or too little gum can disturb the harmonious appearance.
With plastic-aesthetic oral surgery we can improve the appearance of your smile. Because a beautiful smile not only needs beautiful teeth, but also healthy, pink and symmetrical gums. It is often only small details that make the teeth and gums and thus the whole face appear more harmonious.
The decline of gums – also known as recession – results in exposed tooth necks, which lead to hot/cold hypersensitivity and also make the teeth look longer. Black triangles between the teeth are also an unattractive side effect. With this topic, as with very thin gums, we can remove tissue from the palate using a microsurgical procedure and insert it in the appropriate place. In individual cases, artificial materials can also be used. This treatment method is called recession coverage.
Too much gum
If the gums are too long, the teeth will appear too short. In technical jargon, this condition is called “gummy smile”. Aesthetic-plastic oral surgery offers the possibility of removing excess gum in order to create an aesthetically harmonious relationship between teeth and gums. If the gum line is not symmetrical, this can also be compensated and straightened by simple means. In both cases, the newly obtained gingival line will appear much more natural than nature had arranged it.
