Cosmetic Dentistry

A good cosmetic dentist in Dublin

Have you ever heard the saying that “your eyes are the widow to your soul”?
Well, your mouth is the window to your overall health and wellness.
The state of your oral health can offer a lot of hints about your overall health, while the state of your smile its instantly portrays your personality, self confidence, joy and vitality.

If you have excess decay or badly broken down tooth, you may need a crown to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size.
A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance.
A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It’s also used to cover a dental implant.
Crowns can also be used to align a crowded mouth or disguise protruding teeth as well as closing gaps or lightening your tooth color.
Crowns are as strong and comfortable as natural teeth, and these days, a porcelain crown can look every bit as natural as your original teeth with no unsightly black line at gum level.

 

Porcelain Crown Post Treatment Expectations

After the successful completion of the crown it is not uncommon to feel some discomfort, mild pain when you chew, or sensitivity to temperature changes for a few days. A follow up appointment is usually scheduled after your new crown cementation, just in order to make sure that your newly cemented porcelain crown doesn’t feels too tall or your bite doesn’t feel right.

Cleaning Your Crown

Please keep in mind that the longevity of your crown depends in large part on your oral hygiene, diet and the health of the supporting tooth and gums.  It is important to maintain all of your teeth with proper brushing and flossing

dental-examination

Dental bridge is an artificial tooth which is fused between two porcelain  crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth.
This method is very common for replacing one or more missing teeth.

Bridges are permanently fixed in your mouth so you cannot take it out of your mouth.
Placing crown or bridge is very reliable to solve severe dental problems to permanently restore the missing tooth/teeth, functional and aesthetic
appearance.

If you are missing some of your teeth, contact our dentist to schedule an appointment and learn more about the tooth replacement options that are available to you.

The dentist will examine your remaining teeth and gums to determine if you are a good candidate for dental bridges, dentures, or dental implants.

Customized Porcelain Veneers. Combined Art and Science to Give You Astonishing Results !

 

The only regret is that you should have done it sooner!

 

A Porcelain veneer is an ultra thin shell of porcelain that is bonded to your teeth.
They enable you to change the color, shape, and alignment of your teeth to match your lips and your face.

With an unique technique we deliver veneers with their unique shape and color to match the patient’s face and personality.

Veneers are typically bonded to your teeth and not cemented for lasting results.Veneer bonding is typically used to describe a method of adding tooth-colored resin material inside the veneers to permanently bond the porcelain shell to your prepared teeth. It is desirable that minimum preparation be done on your tooth since the longevity of the procedure, depends on how much enamel (the outer layer of your tooth structure) is preserved. Ideally careful case planning is done before Veneers procedure to rejuvenate your smile your personality and your life.

Porcelain Veneers are recommended for a variety of dental conditions such as: uneven spaces, causing food impaction or food stuck between your teeth, worn or chipped fractured teeth, stained or discolored teeth, misshapen teeth, short teeth that are too small or long teeth which are too prominent, crooked teeth etc.

Many options exist to replace missing teeth but only one – dental implants – can provide the feel, function and appearance of natural teeth

Dental implants may be the best option to replace a missing tooth.

Dental implants can improve your appearance, self-confidence, and give you new peace of mind.
They look and feel similar to natural teeth, and the securely attached implant can give you the confidence of eating what you like, speaking easily and clearly, and a new sense of security.
By working together with Novadent , your dental practitioner can offer you the most advanced implants and prosthetic available today.

 

Dental implant treatment – how it works
Undergoing dental implant treatment might seem a little daunting.

Preliminary consultation (non-clinical)
Here you will discuss your dental problems and discover the treatment options available to you, plus get an idea about costs, payment options and time frames.

Next step – Clinical assessment

Your dentist will carry out a thorough clinical examination. Based on the results of these examinations, your dentist will assess your suitability for dental implant treatment. Treatment options and costs are then carefully planned before the treatment begins, and you’ll receive an outline of the proposed program in writing.

Preparation – for some cases

In some cases you might require preparatory treatment before your implant treatment can begin. For example, teeth that are beyond recovery may need extracting, or you could require bone grafting or some other preliminary surgery like sinus lift . Most of these were already explained to you during the clinical assessment and be detailed in your treatment plan.

Fitting the replacement tooth/teeth (implant restoration)

The restoration of a dental implant is similar to the restoration of a conventional crown, bridge or denture:

  • Once the implant has fused with the bone the implants are uncovered and abutments – the posts on which the replacement tooth/teeth will rest – are fitted
  • An impression (similar to a plaster cast) is taken of your gum and abutments and is then sent to dental lab for prosthetic teeth to be manufactured
  • Once produced, your crown, bridge or denture is fitted and checked
  • After a few weeks, you’ll be invited for a review to confirm that everything is satisfactory – they will look to see if there is any movement and of course make sure that there is no pain and you are comfortable with your new teeth.

Inlays /Onlays

Inlays/Onlays  are custom fit fillings made in a laboratory. First, the decay is cleaned from your tooth and then an impression of the tooth is made and sent to the lab. In the interim a temporary filling is used to fill in the space and protect your tooth from fracture or further deterioration. It’s important that you avoid chewing or applying any stress to the temporary filling, as it may be fragile.

When the lab receives the impression from your dentist they will custom make your filling for your tooth. There are several types of materials they can use for the inlay.

 

Porcelain Inlays

The first type of inlay is porcelain or ceramic material colored to match your tooth. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing the other benefits of porcelain or ceramic inlays are that they are also quite stain resistant and hard.

 

Metal Inlays

The second type of inlay is made of a metal, such as gold. Metallic inlays are well known for their durability.

 

Composite Inlays

The final type of inlay is made of tooth colored composites.  Like the porcelain inlays, composites are also very aesthetically pleasing. All three types of inlays are bonded or glued to your teeth with a special cement or glue. Keep in mind that you should stay away from eating on the site of the newly cemented inlay for at least 24 hours.

Like many things in life, the importance of something is never truly appreciated until it is gone. If you’ve lost your teeth, whether due to injury, tooth decay or gum disease, you surely understand.  The good news is that you have options to replace them.  Dentures can help restore your way of life by helping you with day-to-day functions, such as eating and speaking, as well as help restore your confidence by improving your appearance and smile.

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues.

 

The denture process
Firstly the dentist will make a series of impressions of the jaw and take some measurements.

Next they will cast some exact moulds of the dentures to be used.
You, the patient will “try on” the mould several times providing feedback on shape, fit, colour etc.
When the mould has got to a perfect fit the final denture is cast.
After that the final denture is fitted to the patient and if any adjustments are needed they are made there and then
Types of dentures

There are 2 main types: full dentures and partial dentures. Full as the name suggests are used when no teeth remain in the arch. Partial dentures are used when you have one or more existing teeth that are strong enough to stay. You also have upper arch dentures and lower arch dentures.
Advantages of dentures : They help get your smile and confidence back  and
Improve oral hygiene and speech problems.

 

Denture Complications

While every effort is made to make a good and functional denture, please keep in mind that there is no such thing as a perfect denture. After delivery of the denture, it may require a few adjustment visits and some time for you and your new denture to adapt to each other. The most important point to remember is that adjusting to your new dentures is a process; it sometimes takes a little time to get used to.

A new denture can also alter your eating and speaking habits and it may require a bit of practicing before you get comfortable.

Finally, due to differences in the shapes of the jaws and the strong muscle movement of the tongue and cheek, a lower denture may be harder to keep in the mouth compared to an upper denture.

False Teeth (Denture, Crown, Bridge)

If the condition of your teeth are preventing you from eating, smiling, and biting properly due to severe decay, severe periodontal disease, or if you no longer wish to have dentures and missing teeth, then you may be a candidate for a “full-mouth makeover”. A treatment plan will be created that will address your concerns using the latest technologies available in advanced specialized dentistry that will enable you to look and feel great and allow you to eat comfortably. Our team of specialists will meet with you and review your unique situation and address each of your concerns and goals.
At NovaDent you will be treated by dental specialist who have the training, the skill and the judgment to create a beautiful, comfortable, and everlasting smile.

Most full mouth reconstructions involve multiple phases and office visits. It is not unreasonable to expect treatment to take 12 months or more, depending on your situation. The following procedures may be involved, depending on your needs:

  • Prophylactic teeth cleaning and periodontal care.
  • If your gums are not healthy, you will most likely need scaling and root planing to treat periodontal disease. You may require more intensive treatments from a periodontist to ensure that your newly reconstructed teeth will have a solid foundation. Such treatments could involve soft tissue or bone grafts to build up your gums and underlying jaw bone. The dentist will look for deep pockets, excessive or insufficient gum tissue, periodontal disease and bone density irregularities.
  • Crown lengthening to expose healthy, sound tooth structure for possible crowns or bridges
  • Orthognathic surgery to reposition the jaw.
  • Contouring of the gum tissue to create balance and harmony in your smile.
  • Preparation (reduction) of your natural tooth structure so crowns, bridges or veneers can be placed.
  • Placement of temporary restorations so you can become accustomed to your new teeth and the feel of your new mouth or bite alignment.
  • Placement of permanent restorations, such as crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays or bridges, made from ceramic, ceramic supported by metal or a combination of both.
  • Orthodontics (braces) in order to move your teeth into the optimal position for reconstruction.
  • Implant placement and restoration to replace missing teeth and/or anchor bridge restorations.
  • Bone or soft tissue grafting to enhance the stability of your teeth, proposed implants and/or other restorations.

The examination process requires records of your mouth, such as X-rays and photographs, impressions of your upper and lower teeth, models of your teeth that are made from the impressions and a model of your bite. Our dentist may also refer you to specialists (periodontist, orthodontist, oral surgeon) for a consultation in order to develop a treatment plan that is best for you.
Once our dentist has obtained all information relevant to your case, he will develop a comprehensive, step-by-step treatment plan to correct all of the problems in your mouth and complete your full mouth reconstruction.

Cosmetic Bonding

Even the smallest dental imperfections can seriously tarnish your beautiful smile. Chips, cracks, or discolorations cause others to focus on your teeth, rather than what you’re saying. Fortunately, minor imperfections can easily be treated through cosmetic bonding

Bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth.
Home Care

Same as for your natural teeth, tea, coffee, cigarette smoke and other substances can stain the resin used in bonding.

To prevent or minimize stains, respect dentist post treatment instructions and avoid eating or drinking these types of foods and drinks during the first 48 hours after any composite procedure. In addition, brush your teeth often and have them cleaned every six months.
