Aesthetic Dentistry sometimes takes place with a single operation, sometimes with a multiple treatment plan.
Each person is different in appearance and character, so the restoration of the front teeth should be designed specifically in accordance with the individual's special wishes, characteristics and way of speaking.
Although smile is the biggest factor in design, it would be wrong to talk about dental treatments only.
Gums, lips, chin and even nose are very effective factors in smile design, and gum aesthetics (pink aesthetics) shaping on the lips and chin is necessary when necessary.

They are prostheses made by getting support from the teeth and also the gums and bones left in the lost teeth area. Usually they are done if the number and location of the teeth in the mouth does not allow to make fixed dentures. In cases where teeth are partially lost, prostheses attached to existing teeth by means of hooks or sensitive holders are called removable partial dentures. In cases where teeth are completely lost, full (total) prostheses are made, which sit on the gum and bone in the toothless areas.
Implant applications are carried out in order to increase the retention of removable dentures in completely edentulous mouths. With the implants in the jaw placed in the slots inside the movable full denture, chewing and speech functions can be made much more effective with the prosthesis, which has increased stability and retention. Implant prostheses applied according to the patient's mouth structure and problem can be applied in a way that they can be removed by the patient or they can be applied only by the doctor. Patients who have to use a removable prosthesis with implant prostheses can be converted into fixed prosthesis. Implants can also be used to reduce the movement of full dentures in the mouth and increase their retention.
While designing the smile, it is evaluated whether the area created by the gums (pink aesthetics) and the area formed by the teeth (white aesthetics) are in harmony with each other. Pink and white aesthetics should complement each other and be in harmony. In order to design a perfect aesthetic smile, personalized smile and tooth structure are analyzed.
If the gum is not healthy, the teeth are aesthetically incompatible, no matter how white and their arrangement is beautiful. First of all, if gingival bleeding and gingival swelling, gingivitis is eliminated with professional dentist cleaning. Pink and white aesthetic harmony is provided. The appearance of gums more than 2 mm in the upper jaw during smile is called 'gummy smile'. This is a situation that disrupts the aesthetics of the smile. Gummy smile is often caused by the effect of the hypermobile upper lip muscle (levator labi superioris) due to the upper lip rising higher than normal during laughing. The gum smile can be treated by applying this hypermobile muscle botox injection. In people with enlarged gums, gum lengths can be shortened by laser treatment and gums can be made less visible in smiling.
If the root surfaces are opened as a result of withdrawal of the gums due to bone resorption, tissue can be transferred to the area where the withdrawal is taken from the palate. Thus, gum levels seen in ups and downs are corrected and health and aesthetic gain are provided.
If there is a calculus under the gum, purple is reflected on the surface. The gums appear bruised. After the cleaning of the calculus, the gums appear healthy light pink color.
Aesthetic smile design; It is a treatment method used to correct the person's teeth and existing deformities. The gold ratio base is taken into consideration when planning the alignment between the tooth dimensions. According to this principle, each tooth has a size and visibility that should be relative to other teeth.
In the smile design, which we call “Hollywood smile”, 4 golden rules are taken into consideration. According to this; upper incisors should be ahead, longer and more prominent, tooth alignment should be done in a way that no dark gap is formed during smile, the lip muscle on one side during speech and smile should not pull more and upper gums should appear maximum 2 mm.
Porcelain laminae are aesthetic restorations that we do not only need to cover the teeth completely, but only in front of them in the form of leaves. It is the method where the intact tooth tissue is lost the least. Porcelain tooth lamina is adhered to this thinned area. In highly colored teeth that do not result in bleaching, if there are color differences or structural deformity between the teeth, joining the split teeth (diastema closure), restoration of broken or worn teeth, correction of old fillings with distorted color and structure (orthodontic treatment alternative) ) and it is an ideal form of restoration that can be applied to any individual who is dissatisfied with the appearance of their front teeth.
In particular, it is the protection of a tooth with a loss of substance by covering it with a material in the form of a tooth. When aesthetic reasons are desired to change the color and form of the teeth, if there is little tooth texture left behind due to canal treatment or when the old porcelain coatings need to be replaced, zirconium crowns are applied. Porcelain crowns, which are also known as 'veneers' among the people, can now be made entirely from porcelain, with their reinforced infrastructure, with the strengthened infrastructure of dental technology and adhesive materials.
Bonding method, which can be applied to almost all age groups, is a method that can be used to close the gaps between the teeth, repair your caries and broken teeth, get rid of your permanent coloration problems, make the tooth lengths to the desired level and create a shape change in the teeth. The composite dental material in the appearance of enamel and dentin layers of the tooth is applied to the cavities on the tooth or the prepared surfaces with the help of binding agents and after the form of the tooth is given, it is hardened with a laser beam device. In this method, the duration of the session can vary between 15 minutes and 1 hour depending on the dental structure and condition of the person.
