Sometimes cosmetic dentist is compared with a sculptor, who uses clay to create beauty. Cosmetic dentist’s clay is said to be a dental composite resin, which is used in the dental bonding procedure. By using that your dentist can restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolor your smile.

Bonding is a composite resin filling placed in the back teeth as well as the front teeth. Composites are the most suitable solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color of your teeth or the reshaping of teeth. Bonding will lighten any stains you may might have, close up minor gaps and can be used to correct crooked teeth. Accepting dental bonding, you can be sure that the result of this procedure will last one decade minimum.

There are two types of bonding. These types of dental bonding differ in area which requires a smaller or larger area of correction. For small corrections there are one appointment fillings which are color-matched to the tooth and are bonded to the surface for added strength. For larger corrections there are dental lab-created tooth-colored fillings that require minimum two appointments and involve making a mold of your teeth and placing a temporary filling. Then a very durable filling is being created to custom-fit the mold made from your teeth. All these fillings basically are made from porcelain. The custom-fit filling is then bonded to your tooth on your return visit. This type is even more natural looking, more durable and more stain resistant.

It is not difficult to realize whether you are right candidate for dental bonding or wrong. If you have small gaps between your front teeth, or if you have chipped or cracked teeth, you may be the right candidate for bonding. Bonding is also used for patients who have discolored teeth, jagged teeth, gum recession or tooth decay. Smokers might be the wrong candidates for dental bonding, because soon after procedure they will find that their bonding is yellowing. It is because bonding material is porous. In any case it is advised to discuss your position for dental bonding with your dentist.

Dental bonding seems to be the enemy of the silver filling. Unlike silver fillings, composite bonding expands just like your teeth and no cracks are likely to appear in your tooth. Composites can be used to fill in cracks, chips and gaps – and will match the color of your other teeth. Of course, it might cost more than to have simple silver filling, but the advantages are also obvious.

The cost of dental bonding is not as high as the effect of the procedure. As with all procedures, prices may vary depending on your location. Many dental insurance plans cover most of the cost of the bonding, particularly when it is done for structural reasons. Anyway, you are always welcome to enquire Health & Tourism, LLC in Latvia.

To lose a friend or to lose a tooth – these losses are incomparable. When a friend is irreplaceable, then a tooth can be replaced by an implant. Dental implants substitute your teeth and look like your own.

Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that substitute your teeth which were lost due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Dental implants are an ideal option not only for people who have become the victims of tooth decay, root canal failure, periodontitis, trauma of the mouth, excessive wear and tear or congenital defects, but also for those who are not satisfied with their own teeth and have decided to change them to the new ones. There is a big number of restorative options for the treatment of missing teeth, but none of them has demonstrated themselves as functionally effective and durable as implants. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, that you may forget you ever lost a tooth. Dental implants can replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth, support a bridge and reduce the need for a removable partial denture and even supply a denture, making it more secure and comfortable. There are two types of the implants that are used today: endosteal (in the bone) and subperiosteal (on the bone). Endosteal implants are the most commonly used type of implants. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, your periodontist will generate a treatment plan customized exactly to your needs. While being an easy affair, the treatment may differ in its character. It depends on the quantity of teeth you decide to replace: one, several or all.

Modern dental implants are hardly distinguished from the native teeth. Implants are normally placed in a single sitting but require a period of osseointegration. Osseointegration is the process by which direct port of a dental implant root and the bone of the jaw occurs. An osseointegrated implant takes anywhere from three to six months to attach and heal, at which point your dentist can complete the procedure with the placement of a crown. Once the implant has anchored with the jawbone, artificial prosthesis may be attached and the process is done. If osseointegration does not occur, the implant will fail.

Dental implants are among the most successful procedures in dentistry. But you should remember that dental implants are like your own teeth and need oral care and regular dental visits. In order to keep your implant clean and in good physical shape, brushing and flossing still apply. Periodic follow-up visits will be programmed to supervise your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy. In case of positive decision upon the dental implants it would be reasonable to consult your dentist or Health & Tourism, LLC in Latvia which will provide all necessary information about this type of teeth treatment and advice the proper program to restore your teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry is always ready to provide something new for you. Exactly tooth reshaping is one of few instant treatments now available for individuals who have chipped, cracked or irregularly shaped teeth. The dental contouring procedure can even be an alternative for braces under certain circumstances. It is also a procedure of delicate changes. A few millimeters of reduction and a few millimeters of tooth-colored cover can create a beautiful smile when performed by a cosmetic dentist without causing any discomfort to you. Tooth reshaping, or dental contouring, is commonly used to alter the length, shape or position of your teeth.

A patient might doubt whether he is suitable for dental coloring or not. But if you want your teeth to appear less crowded, lack chips and fractures, have decreased overlaps or to be without pits or grooves in the enamel, this procedure should be the right one for you after you discuss it with your cosmetic dentist. With a modest dental contouring, you can make a huge difference in the way you feel about your smile. Good cosmetic dentistry can give you a smile that is the envy of others and the reason of self-confidence. When you simply want to have normal and health teeth, it is logically to do tooth contouring by a cosmetic dentist. Tooth reshaping, or tooth sculpting, is a safe and conservative way to improve your smile.

Tooth contouring and reshaping sometimes is used in conjunction with veneers or bonding. Although dental veneers and tooth bonding are the variations of dental coloring and tooth reshaping.

The reshaping of your teeth is a procedure that involves the removal of a very small amount of tooth structure to help achieve a more attractive smile. Chipped or fractured areas are smoothed out and definite angles or edges can be rounded or squared. Contouring creates better arrangement and can create a more feminine or masculine smile. It is sometimes done to avoid chipped areas from getting worse. Since teeth can become weaker if large amounts of enamel are removed, this procedure is limited to minor changes or combined with veneers or bonding for a marvelous smile.

Despite the title of a procedure, tooth contouring and reshaping is quick, simple, painless, and inexpensive. Your dental insurance is likely to cover tooth contouring and reshaping only if it is needed as a result of an accident. Though dental coloring and tooth reshaping is not luxurious dental service, it does not mean that it has to be performed by a non-professional dentist or that it does not have to be discussed with your cosmetic dentist. Please get a consult with your local dentist or simply contact Health & Tourism, LLC in Latvia. Do not pay much of attention to the location of this health medical tourism agency, because soon it can become your home remote doctor.

To understand endodontic treatment, it is not necessary to know much about the anatomy of the tooth. If we simply translate endodontic treatment from Greek, we will get the inside tooth treatment. Root canal therapy refers to the process by which a dentist treats the inner parts of a tooth, specifically that area inside a tooth that is occupied by its “pulp tissue.” Most people would probably refer to a tooth’s pulp tissue as its “nerve.” While a tooth’s pulp tissue does contain nerve fibers it is also composed of arteries, veins, lymph vessels, and connective tissue.

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, an injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an eruption.

To avoid all these misfortunes simply accept root canal therapy, which is performed by a professional endodontist, who will remove the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully clean and contour the inside of the canal, a channel inside the root, then fill and seal the space. Afterwards you will be given back to your dentist, who will restore your tooth to full function. Many endodontic procedures are performed to relieve the pain of toothaches caused by pulp inflammation or infection. With modern techniques and anesthetics, most patients report that they are comfortable during the procedure.

The cost of endodontic treatment varies depending on how complex the problem is and which tooth is affected. Generally, endodontic therapy and restoration of the natural tooth are less expensive than the alternative of having the tooth extracted. An extracted tooth must be replaced with a bridge or implant to restore chewing function and prevent neighboring teeth from shifting.

Don’t forget to miss special care after root canal treatment! You should not chew or bite on the treated tooth until you have had it restored by your dentist. The unrestored tooth is at risk to fracture, so you should see your dentist for a full restoration as soon as possible. Otherwise, you need only practice good oral hygiene, which includes brushing, flossing, and regular checkups and cleanings.

Your native teeth will become close friends with the restored ones. Endodontically treated teeth will last as long as other natural teeth. In a few cases, a tooth that has undergone endodontic treatment does not heal or the pain continues, but in most of the cases endodontic therapy ends up successfully.

Of course, not all the teeth can be treated endodontically. Occasionally, a tooth can’t be saved because the root canals are not accessible, the root is cruelly fractured, the tooth doesn’t have enough bone support, or the tooth cannot be restored. However, it is advisable to consult your dentist or endodontist, but if you don’t want to waste your time or suffer from root canal infection, simply ask Health & Tourism, LLC – health and traditional medical tourism agency in Latvia.

Everybody loves a white bright smile, even if it is not from Hollywood. And this white has to look natural and healthy. There are various procedures which could help you not only to enjoy other white smiles but to possess your own. You might try and be satisfied with regular procedures such as brushing twice daily, cleaning between the teeth at least once a day plus regular cleanings at the dentist’s. Actually, this is hard daily routine which is complicated with the choice of brush and paste. But do the Hollywood stars go through this hell, too? Who knows, but at least they might have tried teeth whitening.

You might have heard about whitening in washing. Some kind of this technique is used in dentistry. Namely teeth whitening is the process of removing stains and improving their colour through a bleaching process in order to make them look whiter. Only 15 percent of the population has tried the cosmetic procedure yet, but everyone must know that teeth whitening is not a permanent solution and requires maintenance for a prolonged effect.

Teeth whitening’s goal is to remove the stains from enamel, which is being word down over the years. Yellow color comes from dentin which is the core material of the enamel. In everyday mouth routine millions of micro-cracks occur in the enamel and fill up with stains and debris. In other words, teeth whitening is the high-class professional cleaning of the jaws.

Most of the people might think that they do not need this teeth whitening, because their teeth look more or less white and are not stained. But it is not the color, yellow or purple, which causes tooth staining – it is age, starting color, translucency or thinness, eating and smoking habits, drugs with chemicals, grinding and trauma. All of us are getting older, some of us have genetic traits, we have different habits and addictions and it affects our white bright smiles.

If you are really aware of your teeth looking unhealthy or damaged, then you have to decide between in-office and at-home whitening. At-home whitening sounds a bit like heathen chemistry, but it exists. In-office process is characterized by the significant color change in a short period of time. Teeth whitening is a procedure that is advised to be performed by a professional dentist in the appropriate atmosphere.

There are two specific and popular types of teeth whitening: ZOOM whitening and BRITE SMILE whitening. For instance, Zoom teeth whitening is safe, effective, very fast, and, of course, performed only by professional dentist. This type of whitening features proprietary whitening gel, which was designed to be used specifically with the Zoom light. The light and gel work together to penetrate the teeth and remove stains and discoloration.

Accepting the teeth whitening, the color of your teeth won’t go beyond the frame of healthy/natural white. And don’t be afraid of whitening – teeth whitening treatments are considered to be safe, when procedures are followed as directed. In extra cases whitening could cause sensitivity or gum irritation for a short period. To extend the longevity of newly whitened teeth, dentists are likely to recommend avoiding dark-colored foods and beverages for at least a week after whitening, but Health & Tourism, LLC would recommend you to undertake teeth whitening regularly.

It does not really matter if you drink a bottle of cola or a cup of coffee per day. The sequences might be the same and it is discoloration of the teeth. Teeth enamel discoloration is commonly supported by coffee, cigarettes and medicals. All kinds of staining can lead to discoloration; aging and chemical damage to the teeth can do the same. Staining might play a smaller role, if genetics show up to be the prime factor of your teeth’s color. Nature could provide you bright enamel or curse with the dark one. No one is insured from having a disease which can affect the discoloration of the teeth. In such circumstances, when the teeth are in danger because of everyday staining, it would be useful to know about porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers, also known as tooth veneers, are used to correct the color and the shape of the teeth. These problems occur because of reasons described above and veneers can solve it resulting with bright smile. They are placed over the front teeth to change color shape of the teeth. Veneers will perfectly fit teeth that are too small, too big, or have uneven surfaces. In our imperfect world we have already used to say that imperfection is natural and such things as oddly shaped teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, teeth with small holes in them, or an inappropriate sized teeth are common. Still veneers solve such irregularities and create a durable and pleasing smile for you making it more perfect.

Tooth veneers are very thin pieces of specially-shaped porcelain or plastic. They are glued over the front of your teeth. Sometimes a small amount of anesthesia is needed. Veneers also are being compared with crowns, but unlike the crowns, veneers won’t require the dentist to remove much of the tooth itself in most cases. It is important to ask your cosmetic dentist how much tooth will be removed. Veneers are designed according to an impression produced in your cosmetic dentist’s office. Your custom veneer is then glued directly onto your tooth. Typically costing less than crowns, veneers won’t stain. Thus veneers are a very popular solution for most of the people who are seeking perfect smile. Strong and very durable, veneers last from ten to fifteen years, and come in colors that will brighten dark teeth without a shadow of worry of them changing color.

There are two tooth veneers procedures available that correct discoloration of the teeth by removing the brown and yellow staining. The type of a procedure should be discussed with your cosmetic dentist, and the doctor will recommend the most appropriate tooth veneers procedure for you. Composite veneers procedure is normally performed in a single visit to your cosmetic dentist, while porcelain veneers, being a very thin porcelain material, usually require two visits plus a dental laboratory to create the final tooth restoration piece. There are also lumineer porcelain veneers procedures available. Being a new type of porcelain veneers and made of cerninate porcelain, they are 2mm thick.

Now, when all the necessary information is given, it is not a big deal to decide which type of veneers procedure to choose. For other information on medical tourism, prices and availability of veneers procedure feel free to contact Health & Tourism, LLC in Latvia.
