Dental aesthetics in A Coruña
To improve dental aesthetics there are many treatments that can be performed depending on the needs and personal characteristics of each patient.
We can have teeth that, being perfectly aligned in the mouth, present alterations in color or shape, which cause us problems when it comes to smiling.
To solve these problems there are different techniques and each one has its precise indications.
Orthodontics:It consists of placing a series of appliances on the teeth that will generate a series of movements in them in order to correct their position in the mouth and achieve a stable occlusion (bite shape) and an aesthetic improvement.
- Teeth whitening: It is used to achieve lighter tooth shades, in cases of yellowish or dark teeth.
- Veneers or facets: They partially cover the tooth and with them small changes in tooth shape, size and color can be achieved. They can be made of different materials such as composite or porcelain.
- Crowns: They cover the entire contour of the tooth that has previously been worn, and changes in size, shape and color can be achieved with them.
- Reconstructions (fillings) and inlays: They are another way to reconstruct teeth that have been affected either by cavities or fractures.
We must not forget that any basic problem (tooth decay, periodontal disease, etc.) must be previously treated before correcting the aesthetics. Obviously, and whenever possible, we seek that function and aesthetics go hand in hand.
