TREATMENTS


PREVENTIVE TREATMENT

Initially, small tooth decays can be stopped without drilling and filling the tooth. To achieve that, it is possible to use systematic fluoride “in office “application. A dentist applies high concentrated fluorides on tooth surfaces and as a result, small decays could be stopped.

RESTORATIVE TREATMENT

Teeth with great decays need to be repaired with fillings. Old and fractured fillings need to be replaced with new ones. Today, almost all filling treatments are based on restorations with contemporary, “high technology”, tooth colored, plastic materials - aesthetically and functionally sovereign, so called composite fillings.

ROOT TREATMENT

If the tooth decay is so huge and deep that spreads to the tooth nerve (nerve is normally in channels in the middle of the tooth), it is essential to do the root treatment before definitive composite reparation. A dentist takes out the nerve, cleans up and permanently fills the root channels. After this, everything is ready and permanent composite filling or porcelain crown on the top of the tooth can be set.

CROWN / BRIDGES / REMOVABLE PROSTHODONTICS

If a tooth is so destructed that it is impossible to repair it with simple filling, a dentist has to make porcelain crown. In cases where several teeth are missing, these can be replaced with a porcelain bridge or some removable appliance. Nowadays, there are many different types of porcelain crowns and bridges. Almost all dentists, as standard; produce porcelain – gold crowns/bridges and full ceramic crown / bridges.

TOOTH WHITENING / PORCELAIN VENEERS

If you have crowded teeth or visible spaces between teeth...

* In these cases a dentist can grind down 0,5 – 0,7 mm from visible teeth surfaces and make thin porcelain laminates.
* As a result, a patient gets aesthetically perfect teeth, ideally lined together.


If you are not satisfied with tooth color...

* Nowadays, a dentist can perform different tooth whitening procedures. Tooth whitening can be performed with individualized whitening splint and whitening gel, which a patient uses for several weeks while sleeping, called the slowly home whitening.
* Whitening procedure can also be performed in dental office, with high concentrated whitening material, so called fast, “in office” tooth whitening (usually it takes 1-2 dental appointments).
