5 Dental Treatments That Can Enhance Your SMILE

Don't you know there are 5 dental treatments that can Enhance your smile?

Cosmetic dentistry was invented to help us make good first impressions, and nothing does first impressions like a beautiful smile. So if you are thinking about sprucing up your smile, you’re in the right place.

To get you started with your smile makeover, here are 5 dental treatments to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry.

Teeth Whitening / Teeth Bleaching

The first dental treatments are Teeth Whitening. Professional in-office whitening is performed by a qualified dental practitioner, with the use of a specially formulated whitening solution that is applied to your teeth. A high-intensity lamp is used to activate the solution and begin to lift the stains from the outer layer of enamel as well as the dentine beneath.

A session will usually last for about an hour, and many patients are able to see visible results, even within a short period of time. This treatment is often supplemented by a take-home whitening kit, to further aid in the brightening process.

Pros

Some patients may be able to see a noticeable difference, even after one session. In addition, in-office whitening is a time efficient method of working towards the smile you want, only taking up an hour of your day.

If your teeth are healthy, and in otherwise good condition, whitening could be right for you.

Cons

Like any whitening treatment, even the results from an in-chair session are not guaranteed to be the same for everyone. The effectiveness of whitening depends a lot on the nature of your teeth, as well any stains. In addition, post-whitening, some patients' teeth may have an increased sensitivity

It's best to speak to Lumina Dentist about your eligibility for whitening.

Cost

At Lumina Dental Clinic, For Teeth Whitening cost will be explained after you have a consultation with our Dentist.

Veneers

Veneers are an ultra-thin shell that fits over your natural teeth, designed to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. They can not only give you a whiter, brighter set of teeth, but they can also create a straighter, even smile. Beloved by celebrities for creating a camera-ready smile, veneers are an almost instant transformation to your teeth.

Pros

Veneers are custom made for a patient's teeth, meaning they can be very natural looking, in addition to being reasonably durable. They can correct not only colour, but the shape of your teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

If you are looking for a total transformation of your smile, you may want to look into veneers.

Cons

Depending on the individual patient, veneers require that some part of the original tooth be filed down to prepare the surface for the bonding procedure. Whether you go for porcelain or composite veneers, their longevity will vary, meaning at some point you will have to get them replaced.

Cost

As veneers need to be custom made, it is difficult to estimate a general cost, but Lumina dentist will be better able to provide you with a rough estimate. Book your consultation NOW [+6281228888837] to find out more.

What’s the difference between Porcelain Veneers & Composite Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers : Porcelain veneers create a very life-like and natural tooth appearance. The translucent properties of the porcelain allow the veneers to mimic the light handling characteristics of enamel giving it a sense of depth.  Porcelain veneers are used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers are durable and can last for many years, usually 10-15 years, if you take good care of them using a good oral hygiene home care routine.

Composite Veneers : Composite veneers are used in situations in which there is chipping or discoloration of natural teeth.  They are also used where there are minor misalignments of teeth, to give the appearance of straighter teeth. Composite veneers will need to be refreshed or replaced more frequently, as the resin material used is not as strong as porcelain.

Tooth Scaling / Dental Clining

Brushing and flossing helps to clean and remove the plaque from your teeth but you can’t remove tartar at home. During the cleaning, Our professional Dentist will use special dental tools to remove tartar. This process is called scaling.

By visiting your dentists regularly here at Lumina Dental Clinic for a routine dental cleaning usually lasts about one hour and will usually include scaling and polishing.

Cost

At Lumina Dental Clinic Bali, For Dental Clining cost start from IDR 600.000,- (Scaling & Polishing) after you have a consultation with our Dentist.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an alternative solution for patients who do not wish to wear removable dentures or for those who can no longer wear them. Made of titanium, the dental implant itself acts as an artificial root for your replacement tooth.

Before the treatment commences, a thorough medical history is taken to ensure suitability. A 3d scan is essential to assess bone quality/quantity and to plan for the implant placement. a computerised-aided surgical guide is now a standard practice to ensure more accurate placement of the implant.

A local anaesthetic is administered before surgery begins. The dental implant is then placed into the bone socket and jaw during surgery. The jawbone then naturally fuses to the dental implant over a course of approximately three to four months, through a process called osseointegration.

Once the jawbone is completely fused, a carefully sculpted replacement tooth (an abutment) is attached on the implant to support the crown, bridge or fixed denture. Full functionality is restored creating a natural-looking tooth that won’t come loose.

When properly cared for, dental implants can last you a lifetime. Below is a non-exhaustive list of the pros and cons for dental implants:

Pros Of Dental Implants:

  • A permanent tooth replacement solution that poses no risk of moving or dislodging
  • May look or feel more like a natural tooth
  • Require less maintenance than dentures, once implanted
  • Easily incorporates into your regular oral health routine with brushing twice a day and flossing once a day
  • Assist in protecting the jawbone by preventing further deterioration
  • Less risk of cavities developing. Since dental implants are made with titanium and affixed with a crown, bridge or fixed denture, cavities cannot occur.

Cons Of Dental Implants:

  • The process requires more consultation and time, than with dentures
  • Less cost-effective than dentures
  • Not recommended for patients with weak or unsuitable gums or jaws
  • Like all surgical procedures, it carries the risk of complications such as excessive bleeding, nerve trauma, post-operative pain and rejections

Dental Implants Not suitable if you are a smoker!

Root Canal

Root canal therapy can save an infected or badly damaged tooth so it doesn't need to be pulled.

Root canals have an undeserved reputation as a scary dental procedure, but the truth is, they're not usually more painful than a normal filling.

When might you need a root canal?

The root canals are the hollow spaces in the centre of your teeth that lead down to the roots. These contain the dental pulp, soft tissue with nerve endings that lets your teeth sense temperature. If the pulp is infected by bacteria or damaged, this can be extremely painful and cause your tooth to feel extra sensitive when you eat or drink something hot, cold, sweet or sour.

A tooth pulp infection can happen if tooth decay or erosion wears down your tooth or if your tooth is chipped or cracked, exposing the centre. If it's not treated, the infection could spread to other teeth or cause a dental abscess below the tooth.

Our dentist might recommend root canal therapy if you have these symptoms:

  • have severe toothache, especially when chewing
  • tooth feels more sensitive to temperature
  • tooth looks dark
  • tooth feels loose
  • have swelling in your gum, face or neck (possible dental abscess)

Cost

At Lumina Dental Clinic, For Root Canal cost will be explained after you have a consultation with our Dentist.
