Describe:

Root canals are common procedures and can help save your tooth from extraction.

Used For:

Root canal treatment is done when decay will likely damage or has already killed a tooth.

Timescale:

1 Day

Detailed Info:

What is root canal treatment?

The primary objective of dentistry is to keep teeth in the mouth to maintain masticatory (chewing) functions of patient. The dental pulp may be inflated by various causes, or infected by invasion of microorganisms. In this case, the dental pulp tissue has to be removed to clean and shape the canal space and fill with the tissue-friendly filling materials. All these steps are defined as root canal treatment.

The endodontics is a discipline of science dealing with root canal treatment in particular. The root canal treatment is often the most feared treatment among procedures of dental treatment. The root canal treatment can be performed without pain and more quickly thanks to currently developed technological instruments. The root canal treatment lasts in one visit for vital teeth and usually in two visits for non-vital teeth.

What is?

WHAT IS THE LIFE OF A TOOTH UNDERGOING ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?

None of the dentures can exactly replace a natural tooth. It is more important for oral health to perform root canal treatment on an inflamed tooth and restore it properly instead of removing that tooth and inserting an implant or dental bridgework in place. The teeth undergoing root canal treatment stay in the mouth for long years and help maintenance of chewing functions and aesthetics. A tooth with good root canal treatment can be used for entire life with proper oral and dental care.

Factors affecting long-life of a tooth treated with root canal:

The root canal treatment must be performed by a dentist specialized in root canal.

The tooth treated with root canal must be veneered to prevent any leak.

Individuals must care for their teeth after root canal treatment and should not eat too hard food. Although this is required for all the teeth, a special care is needed for a tooth treated with root canal and veneered.

WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS OF RESTORATION AFTER ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?

Canal Fill Fiber Post: Sometimes support from the tooth root to securely hold the restoration in place for the teeth with crown highly damaged. This procedures can be completed within 15-20 minutes with “fiber-post” that can transmit the light developed as a result of advanced technology. This procedure requires precise technique and gives very successful results when performed with proper equipment and correct techniques..

ARE ANY OTHER PROCEDURES NEEDED AFTER ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?

The success rate is around 90%-95% for root canal treatment performed well. However, the root canal may become infected again if bacteria get into the canal due to a tooth recently decayed subject to oral hygiene of patient or due to fracture of the tooth filling.

WOULD I HAVE PAIN AFTER ROOT CANAL TREATMENT?

The root canal treatment is often completed in 1-2 visits depending on the problem with teeth. It is normal for a patient to feel discomfort with the treated tooth for the first 2-3 days after treatment. The patient may use analgesics in accordance with recommendations of dentist. In some cases, it may be necessary to use antibiotics in support of the therapy. The patient may return to daily life after treatment but should not eat anything before numbness of tooth and operative site is relieved. In addition, patients should avoid chewing hard food before upper restoration of teeth is completed.

HOW IS PULP TISSUE INFLAMED OR INFECTED?

Another factor damaging the pulp is a tooth suffering from trauma. A severe impact on the tooth may stop the blood circulation and the pulp tissue losses vitality in time as a result. Again, the chronic trauma suffered by tooth (high restoration, trauma associated with grinding and clenching of teeth) may cause inflammation of pulp or loss of vitality.

Another factor threatening the pulp is presence of periodontal (gum and its surrounding) diseases around the tooth that have not been treated for a long time. The bacteria may cause damage to the dental pulp through tiny side canals to the root surface via gingival pocket.

Bacteria are the major factor for development of diseases of pulp. Every one of se has bacteria in our mouths and they don’t cause harm in normal conditions. However, the acid generated by bacteria colonized on the tooth surface that cannot be cleaned damages the enamel and dentine, resulting in decayed tooth. If such decayed tooth is untreated, bacteria move to the pulp tissue underneath the dentin and cause inflammation of pulp.

HOW DO I RECOGNIZE AN INFECTED TOOTH?

If you have pain and sensitivity induced by any external stimulus such as cold, hot and chewing, or if you have a spontaneous pain for no reason, it is likely for you to have inflammation or onset of inflammation. Furthermore, excessive discoloration of teeth may be a sign of inflammation. The infection extends from the root end to the jawbone and results in small or large facial swelling in cases of teeth where decay reaches to pulp but cannot be treated.



Describe:

A dental filling is a type of restorative dentistry treatment used to repair minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay or otherwise damaged surfaces of the teeth. Filling materials, which include composite, porcelain and silver amalgam, may be used to even out tooth surfaces for better biting or chewing.

Used For:

To restore your teeth in cases where they are broken, chipped or a cavity is present.

Timescale:

1 Day

Detailed Info:

Enamel loss is a common component of tooth decay, and may result in tooth sensitivity. In many cases, sensitivity caused by enamel loss will be significantly improved or completely eliminated once an appropriate dental filling material is placed. But in some cases, depending on the extent of tooth decay or damage, the affected tooth may require additional or alternative procedures, including:

  • Dental Crowns: Teeth requiring more support than offered by a traditional filling may require a dental crown.
  • Dental Implants and Dental Bridges: Irreparable tooth damage requiring tooth extraction may require an implant or bridge.
  • Root Canals (perhaps along with antibiotic treatment): Infected, abscessed or nerve damaged teeth may require a root canal procedure.

What is?

The Procedure

The dentist begins the procedure by preparing the tooth and necessary surrounding areas in order to restore the decay or damage. The decay or damage is removed with a dental hand-piece or laser, and the area is cleansed to remove bacteria or debris before the restoration is completed.

The first step in performing a composite filling procedure involves isolation of the tooth. Tooth isolation is critical in a composite restoration because it prevents moisture from interfering with the bonding process. This requires the placement of various adhesives followed by the composite material, which is then hardened with a special bonding light. The completed composite restoration is both functional and natural looking.



Describe:

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations used by a select number of dentists. In certain cases, they are a more conservative alternative to full coverage dental crowns.

Used For:

Inlays and Onlays are used to restore your teeth in cases where they are broken, chipped or a cavity is present.

Timescale:

1-4 Days

Detailed Info:

Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays offer a well-fitting, stronger, longer lasting reparative solution to tooth decay or similar damage. These restorations are beneficial from both an esthetic and functional point of view.

Inlays and onlays can often be used in place of traditional dental fillings to treat tooth decay or similar structural damage. Whereas dental fillings are molded into place within the mouth during a dental visit, inlays and onlays are fabricated indirectly in a dental lab before being fitted and bonded to the damaged tooth by your dentist.

The restoration is dubbed an “inlay” when the material is bonded within the center of a tooth. Conversely, the restoration is dubbed an “onlay” when the extent of the damage requires inclusion of one or more cusps (points) of the tooth or full coverage of the biting surface.

The Benefits of the Conservative Approach

Superior Fit: They offer a conservative preparation that preserves as much healthy tooth as possible. They are a great choice if you have minimal to moderate tooth decay that extends into a flossing area, offering an excellent alternative to full coverage crowns.

Tooth Color: Boasting esthetic longevity, they are not likely to discolor over time as tooth-colored resin fillings often do.

Tooth Structure Safeguard: They preserve the maximum amount of healthy tooth structure while restoring decayed or damaged areas, helping to ensure functional longevity.

Easy Tooth Cleaning: Because the fit is tailored at all edges and the preparation minimal, your tooth can be easier to clean than it would be with full coverage restorative alternatives such as a dental crown. Composite fillings can shrink during the curing process, whereas prefabricated porcelain or gold inlays/onlays will not (ensuring a precise fit).

Tight Space Fulfillments: If you have a cavity between your teeth, consider an inlay rather than a direct composite filling. They are better at sealing teeth to keep out bacteria; they are easy to clean, will not stain and offer exceptional longevity.

Strength and Stability: They are extremely stable restorative solutions for the treatment of decay. The superior fit and durable material make them a stable choice that can actually strengthen a damaged tooth.

Weak Tooth Protector: An onlay can protect the weak areas of the tooth. The procedure does not require the complete reshaping of the tooth.

What is?

The Procedure

Typically, an inlay or onlay procedure is completed in two dental visits.

During your first visit, your dentist must prepare the damaged tooth. A molded impression of the tooth is then taken and sent to a dental laboratory, where the restoration is fabricated.

Inlays and onlays can be made from gold, porcelain or resin materials. The difference is in the appearance of the finished restoration. A fitted, provisional restoration (sometimes known as a temporary or “temp” for short) in the shape of the final restoration can be created during this visit to protect the tooth while the final restoration is being fabricated.

During your second visit, the provisional temporary is removed and your inlay or onlay is placed.

They are extremely stable restorations that seldom fail. Your dentist will check all margins to ensure a smooth fit with tight adjacent contacts. Your dentist will also check your bite to ensure that there are no occlusion-related problems affecting the margins of the restoration. Once fitted, the restoration is bonded onto the tooth and the margins are polished.

A Few Simple Guidelines

Sometimes, teeth need to be removed due to decay, disease or trauma. Having a tooth removed or “pulled” is called a tooth extraction.

When you have an extraction, it’s natural that changes will occur in your mouth afterward. Your dentist may give you instructions to follow after the extraction, and it’s important to talk to your dentist if you have any questions or problems. Here are some general guidelines to help promote healing, prevent complications, and make you more comfortable.

Anesthetics

Before the extraction, you will be given an anesthetic to reduce your discomfort. Your mouth will remain numb for a few hours after the extraction. While your mouth is numb, you’ll want to be careful not to bite your cheek, lip or tongue. After the extraction, do not eat any foods that require chewing while your mouth is numb. The numbness should go away within a few hours.



Describe:

If your gums rest too low or too high on your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile, you may be a candidate for gum contouring surgery. Also called gum reshaping or tissue sculpting, this cosmetic dental procedure can even out an uneven gum line and give you a smile you can be proud of.

Used For:

To reshape the gum line, creating a more attractive smile line.

Timescale:

5 Days

Detailed Info:

we can correct your smile if you are unhappy about the amount of gum tissue that shows. Too much gum, uneven gum levels or gum recession can detract from an otherwise great looking smile. Since our lips frame the smile they too play an important role in your smile’s appearance. The lips and gums should be in harmony. If your lip comes up too much it may give you a “gummy smile”. The solution is to reshape the gums to reveal more of your teeth. Artistic sculpting of gum tissue can make a dramatic improvement in one’s smile. The healing time is very rapid and predictable. 

Why would gum contouring be suitable for me?

Gum contouring is a way of achieving symmetry of tooth proportions and gum line. It is a perfect option if you are suffering from:Teeth that appear too short or too square

  • Teeth with gum recession
  • Uneven gum line
  • Excessive gum on display when smiling (so-called”gummy smile”)
  • Gaps between the teeth that will be closed with cosmetic dentistry
  • Teeth with gum disease


Describe:

As we age unfortunate things can start to happen inside our mouths. Gums can recede, teeth wear down, your teeth can start to get a bit wobbly and overall the smile line starts to look a bit tired.

Used For:

To restore, repair or reshape your smile line in order to create a youthful smile line.

Timescale:

5 Days

Detailed Info:

As we age unfortunate things can start to happen inside our mouths. Gums can recede, teeth wear down, your teeth can start to get a bit wobbly and overall the smile line starts to give an indication that it is not as good looking as good or as youthful as we would like it to be. It’s all starting to look a bit…old and tired. Not so long ago finding an acceptable and affordable solution was not available to everyone. A grin and bear it approach seemed to be the only option and it was the norm to accept the teeth’s ageing process.

At Aesthetic Centre Turkey we can offer you a helping hand back to that more youthful look. Although not a definitive anti-aging procedure the added benefits of a full Smile Makeover are such that many of the effects of a traditional facelift are achieved, and without the traumas associated with additional surgery. A set of nice looking teeth can take years off your appearance and leave you looking healthier too. When determining the best results for our patients our Cosmetic Dentists and Oral Surgeons take a great many things into account, and overall facial aesthetics are one of the most important. It’s not just the shape of individual teeth or even just how they sit within your mouth that is taken into consideration. Your whole face, front and side profile will be assessed with a view to making sure that the optimum result is achieved.

Say goodbye to those sunken cheeks, the pinched or thinning lip lines or the concaved look that is sometimes inflicted upon us as we advance in years. With a relatively few tweaks and additions in terms of style, shape, colour, length and positioning of the teeth, your new smile can wipe years from your face. All this is achieved during our comprehensive Dental Facelift procedure. For full details and an explanation of the process please do not hesitate to contact a member of our Team (some of whom have had the Dental Facelift themselves). For those of you that are looking for Dental Implants alongside your Dental Facelift you will be pleased to hear that the same techniques can be applied to your treatment plan with exactly the same aesthetic results.



Describe:

Teeth naturally darken with age and their appearance can also be affected by consuming certain foods which contain colorants or by the accumulation of surface stains produced by tobacco.

Used For:

To whiten the appearance of your teeth, restoring the original shade of white in a very short space of time.

Timescale:

1 Day

Detailed Info:

Teeth naturally darken with age and their appearance can also be affected by consuming certain foods which contain colorants or by the accumulation of surface stains produced by tobacco. Teeth whitening is the classic technique to create a beautiful smile with bright white teeth. It is a quick treatment with immediate results, which is one of the reasons for its surge in popularity. Our professional whitening systems are far more effective than anything you will find at your local store. All the products we offer have been proven safe and effective, and they provide long-lasting results. The procedure can be done either in-office or at home and it is completely painless. Our recommended treatment consists of the combination of one whitening LED-based session in our dental clinics, followed by night splints at home for several days. This double action will improve the bleaching results, while also maintaining the whiteness for longer.

The Process of Professional Teeth Whitening

  • The dentist will first assess you to ensure that the bleaching process is suitable for your teeth and then decide between the different options available.
  • The dentist will clean the plaque and tartar if necessary and also check up if all of your teeth are healed, all cavities are treated and filled.
  • The dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect your gums. Bleach is then applied to the teeth.
  • A special light or laser might be used to enhance the action of the whitening agent.
  • The dentists cleans the gel, removes the protective layer from your gums and rinses your mouth.

After a whitening treatment, some people may find that their teeth become sensitive to hot or cold products during the ensuing days. These symptoms are temporary and tend to disappear after a few days. Remember that tooth whitening should be done only under a dentist’s care. Moreover, using whitening treatments without a dentist’s care can lead to some undesirable side effects.

What is?

Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

  • It’s painless. Because we use an impulse laser beam, the enamel and the deep layers of the tissue do not heat up. Gums ( gingiva ) don’t get irritated as the laser beam is pointed directly at the tooth and the gum area is protected with a special gel.
  • It’s safe. At every moment the doctor has full control of the length and the power of the laser beam, and surrounding tissue is not affected.
  • It’s effective. The procedure is quick and the results visible within 24 hours.


Describe:

Dental Lumineers are a popular veneer option because they are a “minimal preparation” or “no-preparation” procedure that is attractive to both dentists and patients who benefit from the concept of tooth preservation.

Used For:

To cover the front surface of your tooth in order to enhance it’s cosmetic appearance in terms of shape and colour.

Timescale:

5 Days

Detailed Info:

Lumineers are Designed to Deliver a Beautiful Result with a Simple, Painless Process.

With our proprietary technology , you can have the smile you’ve always wanted in less time and with far more comfort than you ever imagined. Lumineers are digitally designed to be ultra-thin (about as thin as a contact lens), so they can be applied seamlessly over your teeth to deliver a natural looking smile. That’s why Lumineers is the #1 patient-requested veneer system in the world.

This technique is best used with patients who have spacing in their smile and only minor tooth rotations. Most cosmetic dentists employ conservative bonding techniques in which they only remove enough surface enamel to allow a ceramist to make life-like teeth for patients. Often Lumineers do not require the dentist to grind, cut or file down any tooth structure for proper placement. The veneers are adhesively bonded to the”facial (front) surface” of the teeth, making the process as much of a minimally invasive procedure as possible.

Lumineers vs. Traditional Veneers

Traditional veneers and their thick nature require the grinding down of your original tooth structure. This can be a painful, anxious experience that many patients would prefer to avoid. Lumineers are unique in that they are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and highly translucent, allowing them to replicate the natural appearance of enamel. Lumineers are so thin they require little to no tooth reduction and no shots. Once the procedure is completed, there is no tooth sensitivity or placement discomfort, so they look and feel natural from the moment they are placed. With Lumineers you can eat and drink anything you want with confidence because they are applied in the most durable way possible.

With Lumineers you get:

  • A painless procedure
  • Sensitivity-free results
  • Permanently white results that last
  • A quick and easy process

Your Lumineers can be installed in two easy visits to bring out a beautiful new smile. During the first visit a precision custom mold will be taken so that personalized veneers can be created, then you and your dentist will choose the shade you think works best for your new, permanently white smile. On your second visit, your Lumineers are checked for fit and shade then painlessly attached giving you a healthy, natural smile.

Lumineers May be Suitable for the Following Cosmetic Dental Motives:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Spaced teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Slightly crowded teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Small teeth
