While the main goals of traditional dental medicine are healthy teeth and removal of caries and toothache, aesthetic dental medicine approaches the problem in a different manner. Bearing in mind its primary purpose, aesthetic dental medicine perceives even the simplest fillings as an opportunity to improve your smile.
People say a beautiful smile opens all doors. A smile is the first thing the person in front of you will notice. Therefore, it is not surprising that a large number of people undergo corrective and aesthetic interventions in order to improve their smile.
What is more important: health, function or aesthetics?
At the Dental Clinic Rident we believe that health must not be jeopardized because of aesthetics, but also aesthetics must not suffer due to a doctor’s oversight to consider all aesthetic possibilities.
At our Dental Clinic we have all kinds of dental medicine specialists and top educated technicians. Your smile is our concern.
Creating a smile
The perception of a beautiful smile is personal; however, there are mathematical and geometrical concepts and ratio analyses of lips and teeth and their compliance with the rules of structural beauty and harmonious fitting creating an attractive facial appearance.
Only if a team of primary care doctors of dental medicine, dental technicians, orthodontist, periodontologists, implantologists and surgeons know the rules of the smile analyses and clinical protocols, and respect the individuality of each patient, shall the results be superior.
Rident’s dental medicine doctors and dental technicians work each day on the creation and modification of smiles.
Ceramic facings – Veneers
One of the most popular aesthetic dental interventions is the placement of ceramic facings. We whet only 0,5 mm of enamel to create the right conditions for beautiful teeth. Not only are we able to change the color of teeth, but also the shape and the size, while dental sequence can be harmonized. Even though we are dealing with the reduction of only 0,5 mm of healthy tooth substance, these interventions should be left exclusively to highly educated doctors of dental medicine, that know the rules of smile analyses, as well as clinical protocols applied for the correction of white (firm teeth substance) and red (gums) aesthetics.
When dental medicine doctors and technicians govern the laws of smile aesthetics, two visits are sufficient for breathtaking changes.
Often whitening of the remaining teeth is recommended. As for red (gums) aesthetics harmonization, a consultation with the periodontologist is required.
At our Dental Clinic oral surgeon specialists and top educated technicians collaborate closely together.
Your smile is our concern.
Polyclinic Rident puts your health in the first place. Accordingly, our clinic uses latest dental methods and technologies combined with the ‘state-of-the-art’ materials, that makes no exceptions in creation of aesthetic restorations, too.
In the process of reconstruction of damaged teeth due to caries or fractured tooth crown and in the aesthetic correction of the color and shape of teeth, we use the most sophisticated composite fillings, as opposed to amalgam-based fillings.
Contemporary research has shown the amalgam as recently common form of fillings, as potentially harmful to the health of patients, due to the presence of substances like copper, mercury, silver or tin, which can consequently cause a variety of health issues by entering into the human body. On the other hand, anytime when amalgam fillings are set, part of a healthy tooth structure has to be removed, which isn’t the case with the composite aesthetic fillings, that removes the diseased part of the tooth merely. For those reasons, Polyclinic Rident uses modern composite fillings made of superb materials, resulting with the tooth that looks entirely natural.
By using composite aesthetic restorations we also fulfill high aesthetic requirements, adjusting modern aesthetic fillings to the shape and color of the natural tooth, making it imperceptible inside the oral cavity, that creates a so-called ‘chameleon’ effect.
Cosmetic gum surgery
It is beautiful to see a pretty smile. Like beautiful architecture, nature or pretty details that arouse a feeling of comfort, a beautiful smile gives pleasure to the eye. Just as a house or a cathedral, a flower or a monument are aesthetic experiences only in adequately beautiful surroundings, so are the whiteness, the shape and the size of a harmonious tooth sequence noticed only if accompanied by good and healthy gums.
Gums (gingiva) are, in the aesthetics of a smile, the frame of a picture. Can a modern painting appear beautiful if placed in a baroque frame? Can a slanted, torn or inappropriately painted frame rightly frame a picture?
Red, swollen gums, long, bare, tooth necks, jaw defects following teeth loss – give way to an unpleasant smile.
Today, most of these imperfections can be removed or reduced with cosmetic gum surgery.
Implants in the aesthetic sphere
After decades of application, dental implants have become a standard in dental medicine. Routinely the implants work when placed in a good quality jawbone that has sufficient volume. Implantologists are faced with two main challenges nowadays: implants in the aesthetic sphere and implants in a bone of insufficient height/width and of poor quality.
The Dental Clinic Rident’s top educated surgeons successfully apply implantology protocols in the aesthetic sphere. Thanks to the rich experience and knowledge that our surgeons transfer as lecturers on congresses, and especially thanks to the close collaboration with prosthetic specialists and technicians, splendid aesthetics of dental implants in our Clinic is not a coincidence but a rule.
One of the area of aesthetic dental medicine is teeth whitening. Different approaches are applied, depending on the situation. At the Dental Clinic Rident you can whiten your teeth with a Beyond system that uses high intensity blue light that activates a special whitening gel placed on the teeth. The entire treatment is carried out during a single visit and guarantees perfect whitening.
Professional teeth cleaning and sand blasting
Teeth whitening should be performed only after having thoroughly cleaned the teeth, and after having given the patients thorough instruction on optimal daily hygiene of the oral cavity.
For an optimal hygiene of the oral cavity, professional teeth cleaning is recommended twice a year.
Our Dental Clinic has an exemplary organized prophylactic centre. Our best dental medicine doctors highly educated in the area perform thorough professional cleaning, which consists in:
- Instruction, motivation and correction of the oral cavity hygiene
- Removal of hard and soft teeth deposits (with “sound” instruments, manual instruments, sandblasting)
- Polishing and fluoride treatment
Uobičajeno se provodi bez anestezije. Kod osjetljivih zubi je naravno moguće anestezirati senzibilna područja.
