Esteettinen hammashoito

For the treatment team at Ogadent and especially for the dentist Olga Svid, aesthetic dentistry is a very dear area that has accumulated experience over the years through several repetitions.

Aesthetic dentistry refers to dental care not related to oral diseases, aimed at improving the appearance of a person’s mouth and teeth. Aesthetic dentistry can include teeth whitening, making dental veneers and crowns for front teeth, and/or orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign treatment

Invisalign is an orthodontic method that corrects misalignments without the need for fixed appliances. The treatment uses transparent aligners that gradually move the teeth towards the desired position. Modern technology allows patients to find out during a free consultation if Invisalign treatment is possible for them. However, not all dental misalignments, especially bite issues, can be corrected using Invisalign.

During a free consultation, our dentist Olga Svid conducts an examination of the bite and assesses whether Invisalign treatment is suitable. If necessary, patients can be referred to an orthodontic specialist.

Invisalign treatment is beneficial for many people

Invisalign is beneficial for many people, particularly for aesthetic treatments like correcting the positioning of front teeth. Before starting, patients receive a treatment plan showing the stages and the desired end result, allowing them to see how their teeth will look post-treatment.

The treatment involves a series of clear, removable aligners that are changed every two weeks, gradually moving the teeth to their final position. Each aligner is custom-made to move the teeth a precise amount.

How does Invisalign treatment differ from traditional braces?

Invisalign differs significantly from traditional braces. The clear aligners are less noticeable and don’t cause discomfort or cleaning problems like metal braces. They should be removed for eating and brushing.

Who is Invisalign treatment suitable for and how much does it cost?

Invisalign is suitable for adults and requires the mouth and teeth to be in good health before starting. The duration of the treatment depends on the complexity of the dental misalignment, ranging from 3-4 months to 18 months. Post-treatment, a retention phase is necessary to prevent teeth from moving back and to ensure the results last.

Retention usually involves a thin wire attached to the back of the teeth or a clear retainer similar to the aligners. The cost of Invisalign varies depending on the complexity and duration, starting from around 2000 euros. The price includes all standard treatment expenses, such as examinations, x-rays, photographs, treatment planning, aligners, visits during the treatment, post-treatment retention, and a follow-up visit after the treatment.

Ceramic Veneers and Crowns

Ceramic dental veneers and crowns, as well as composite materials, can be used to correct aesthetic flaws in teeth and restore dental tissue lost due to decay or wear. Typically, they are used for correcting the color, shape, or position of front teeth and for restoring a root-canaled tooth. A ceramic veneer or crown adheres well to the tooth and can withstand biting forces effectively. The optical properties of glass-ceramic are close to those of tooth enamel, which is why well-made veneers look very natural and do not change color over the years.

Dental veneers are shells attached to the surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. For instance, repairs of worn, broken, or stained teeth are done using veneers. Ogadent creates ceramic veneers and crowns in two ways: with modern CEREC technology and the traditional method, crafting the crown/veneer individually in a dental laboratory from reinforced glass-ceramic.

With CEREC technology, a ceramic filling or crown can be effortlessly made with a computer-controlled CEREC device, tailored precisely for the patient’s mouth. The process is quick and painless, often not requiring multiple visits to the dentist. The patient’s mouth is scanned with a 3D camera belonging to the CEREC system, after which a three-dimensional model is designed based on the optical image. The 3D model is then milled on-site into a crown/filling of the exact right shape and fitted to the patient. CEREC provides precise, high-quality, and durable results and is more affordable than a traditional ceramic crown/veneer made in a dental laboratory. Although a CEREC crown or veneer is indistinguishable from a real tooth due to its natural and beautiful appearance, we recommend a traditionally made crown/veneer from the dental laboratory in some cases (such as front teeth).

In addition to ceramics, aesthetic corrections to teeth can also be made with composite materials intended for aesthetic treatment. The durability and wear properties of composite materials are weaker than those of ceramics. Composite veneers are also significantly more affordable than ceramic ones.

Teeth Whitening

At Ogadent, our skilled dental hygienists offer teeth whitening services. The options include in-office whitening or at-home whitening.

The result of in-office whitening is visible immediately after the procedure.

Our clinic uses the most effective method available today – laser whitening.
The visit lasts about 1.5 hours. Teeth usually lighten by a few shades, but it’s important to remember that the whitening result is always individual.

Before starting at-home whitening, you need to visit our clinic twice. First, an impression of your teeth is taken, after which individual whitening trays are made in the laboratory. These trays are used at home with the whitening gel (usually for 10-14 days). On the second visit, you will receive the whitening trays, whitening gel, and instructions for home use.

Teeth lightening usually becomes noticeable about a week after starting at-home whitening. Whitening gel can be purchased from the clinic and used as needed in the future, provided the dentist assesses that there are no contraindications to whitening in the future.

What should be considered before teeth whitening?

Whether it’s at-home or in-office whitening, your teeth should be in good condition before performing the whitening. There should not be too long a gap since the last check-up, and tartar removal is recommended to be done about two weeks before the whitening. If there are cavities in the teeth, they must be treated before whitening. Gum disease and/or tartar can be contraindications for whitening, so it’s advisable to first undergo a check-up and/or tartar removal.

If your teeth are sensitive, it’s recommended to start using a desensitizing toothpaste daily a couple of weeks before whitening. Fluoride treatment at the clinic may also reduce possible sensitivity afterward.

For two days after whitening, smoking, using snus, coffee, and all staining foods and drinks are on the list of prohibited items.
