Our specialists will propose advanced cosmetic dentistry treatments to change and improve the look of your teeth and enhance the natural beauty of your face. .

Porcelain inlays and onlays
Inlays and onlays are porcelain fillings which ideally restore the anatomical shape of the tooth. Inlays and onlays provide a great aesthetic effect and are much more durable than traditional fillings. The doctor will remove the decay from inside of the tooth and take an impression of the cavity, which will be used in the prosthetics lab for microscope-assisted production of a porcelain onlay/inlay filling. For the time of manufacturing an onlay/inlay filling in the lab, the doctor will close your tooth with a temporary filling, then, at the second visit, he or she will remove it and attach the porcelain filling.
Porcelain veneer is a thin dental prosthetic restoration, a porcelain shell, fitted to the anterior surface of the tooth (it looks like a nail plate). A porcelain veneer is 0.5mm – 0.7mm thick. Veneers are made for aesthetic reasons, e.g. to lengthen, shorten or widen the crown or to provide a natural look in the event of discoloured or dead teeth.

1. What are porcelain veneers? What are they used for?
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells which are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are used to repair all aesthetic irregularities of the teeth by changing their colour, shape and length, as well as to restore the missing fragments.
2. Should I whiten my teeth in-office or at home?
An advantage of in-office teeth whitening is its speed and the guarantee that the procedure will be carried on professionally by a well-skilled dentist. The Beyond and Zoom teeth whitening methods are completed during one appointment. However, if you prefer to do it at home, we suggest the tray-based whitening method, which is also initiated at a dentist surgery. Using impression of a patient’s teeth, the doctor manufactures professional custom-made trays, the so-called bleach splints. At home, the patient puts bleaching gel into the splints and places them on his or her teeth at night (for 8 hours). The whitening procedure takes about 14 days but effects are visible right after the first application.
3. What is the difference between inlays/ onlays and standard fillings?
Inlays and onlays have more advantages than the standard, extensive fillings made of light-cured material. Inlays and onlays are usually made of porcelain, which makes them more durable, aesthetic and resistant to wear. A restored tooth looks natural and may further fulfil its function thanks to a precisely recreated anatomical shape. The studies show that mean durability of a standard filling is 5 to 7 years compared to 10 years in the case of inlays and onlays.
