The dental implant is an artificial tooth root, made of appropriate materials and placed in the jawbone so as to provide the function and aesthetic of the missing teeth

The quality of the available bone is one of the factors affecting the success of the implant. Also, before the treatment and during the implant’s staying in the mouth, the gingivas should be completely healthy.
There is not any upper age limit as long as the patient is fine in terms of general health condition. Still, implants are not recommended for very young patients as their bone development is not complete.
The implant can be applied to any person who is fine in terms of general heath conditions

In general, the proceeding is done in the second month after the first operation. You can go on your daily life with the temporary dental dentures within this period

Your doctor will not leave you without teeth, providing a temporary denture for you. Then, the permanent teeth will be installed on your implants and the treatment will be completed

4-6 implants are required for All-on-Four procedure. This is an high-quality procedure that is easier compared to implementing a full set of implants in the mouth.

Perfectly aligned attractive looking teeth... It takes the skin color, the gum position, the front teeth color and size, and of course the position of the upper teeth with the lower lip into consideration
It is medical steps that help you realize brighter teeth and their correct alignment according to shape of your face. This gives a more confident smile to you
First, the dentist surgically places the implant into the jawbone. There may be some swelling and/or tenderness after the surgery, so pain medication is usually prescribed.
Next comes osseointegration. What makes an implant so strong is that the bone actually grows around it and holds it in place. Osseointegration means “combines with the bone” and takes time.
Finally, it’s time for the placement of the artificial tooth/teeth. The doctors will customize a new tooth for you, called a dental crown. The crown will be based on size, shape, color and fit and will be designed to blend in with your other teeth. Implant-supported bridges or dentures are also made to fit your mouth and your implants. Once completed, the man-made teeth are attached to the implant posts
Laminate veneer is the most preferred treatment method for smile design. Eliminating gaps between teeth, changing tooth color, removing erosion and even re-alignment is possible by this treatment.
Veneers are nail thick, thin, porcelain, small leaves. Firstly, front sides of teeth are roughened little bit, then porcelain veneers are stuck and a very natural aesthetic appearance is gained. You don`t have to roughen all sides of teeth. You can reach maximum aesthetic with minimum roughening just on the front sides
In the situations without tooth loss but with a lot ravage or where laminate crown practice result inadequate, empress or zirconium crown can be used. In this system white color zirconium compound is used as base instead of metal.
There are many factors which affect the appearance of crowns and bridges; among them the most important one is their reaction for light. Natural teeth are transparent for light. This comes up with depth and vividness on teeth as a result. Because of their transparency feature, porcelain crowns without metal supports (empress-zirconium) have more depth and vividness. Thus, the most nature tooth like results is obtained.
However, in situations with tooth loss only zirconium crowns should be preferred
Composite veneer means that the tooth is not abraded, there is no imprint and no dental technician needed, but the entire treatment is performed within the dental office in one or maximum 2 steps. After removing the old fillings and the soiled parts, the dentist sets up the tooth and then covers it with an aesthetic composite shell. This requires special techniques and the artistic sensibility of the dentist. During the treatment, the dentist uses composite materials of different tone and color from the deep layers to the surface. The result is a beautiful restoration that resembles the natural
Composite veneers can be made in all cases where no tooth is missing or if only a little bit of a tooth is missing. This is often the case when tooth decay or larger fillings occur. Composite veneers can also change the shape and color of the teeth. It may also be that a tooth whitening is made prior to building the composite veneer so that a new tooth color can be formed that is much whiter than the previous one. The teeth whitening and the composite veneer together meet the expected result. In some cases, patients opt for composite veneers when they are reluctant to wait for porcelain veneers, as they also require the work of a dental technician, and therefore take longer to complete
Porcelain veneers are the ideal solution to hide minor flaws, discoloration and aesthetic imperfections. Porcelain veneers are the most elegant achievement of aesthetic dentistry. Careful design, extremely precise preparation by the doctor and aesthetically demanding work by the dental technician are required. However, the work and energy that comes into play are rewarded – bright, natural-looking gorgeous teeth. Of course, it is also important that the entire crown does not need to be polished and a lot of valuable dentures don’t need to be removed, work appears only on the front of the tooth
First, the patient participates in a dental consultation. He / she is thoroughly examined by the dentist, then they discuss the treatment together.
Then the dentist removes a minimal layer of about 0.5 mm from the anterior surface of the tooth. Thereafter, a precise imprint is taken from the patient’s teeth, so the dental technicians can make the porcelain veneer.
When the veneer is being made, the patient will receive a temporary veneer to preserve the aesthetics of the teeth and avoid any discomfort.
The porcelain veneer is fixed at the next meeting with the dentist with a very strong special adhesive
