Ceramic dental veneers

Ceramic veneers consist of very thin ceramic "chips" and are applied to the front teeth, after a slight preparation of the enamel.
This minimally invasive technique can be used in different situations such as:

  • Teeth with structural changes in enamel;

  • pigmented teeth;

  • Corrections of slight dental malpositions;

  • Closure of diastemas (space between two teeth);

  • abraded teeth;

  • Teeth resistant to bleaching techniques;

  • Morphological changes in the teeth.

Careful assessment by the dentist is necessary in order to identify the exact needs of each patient and to identify possible contraindications, such as bruxism, insufficient coronal height or absence of surface enamel. Veneers have the considerable advantage of being made entirely of ceramic material, with no metal. This gives the product an exceptional transparency and shine, so that it blends perfectly with the surrounding teeth. The surface remains pleasantly smooth and shiny throughout the life of the product. The experience we have gained in this field has allowed us to ensure exceptional quality work, making use of highly qualified dental technicians with decades of experience in the field.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment that allows you to lighten the colour of your teeth. It is done by applying a gel based on hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide depending on the patient’s needs. This treatment can be done at home or, if you would like to save time, it is increasingly common for your dentist to do the treatment for you. We have selected for you the revolutionary whitening system developed by the world-renowned brand Philips.

The new Zoom 2 whitening system is clinically proven to whiten teeth of different shades in just 60 minutes. The new LED lighting technology emits an optimal spectrum of light and allows a whitening effect of 40% more than a system without light activation. The light activates a photocatalyst in the hydrogen peroxide-based Zoom product and allows significantly faster and better whitening results.

Application of gemstones to teeth

Often young patients request the application of gemstones to the surface of the tooth. In most cases this is done by gluing a polycarbonate gemstone using a simple adhesive treatment that does not harm the tooth. The new collection of Swarovski gemstones gives our patients’ smiles a strikingly eye-catching appearance. If desired, it is also possible to apply a real diamond to the tooth: this inevitably involves creating a small cavity to accommodate the tip of the small diamond.
