Meta Description: Aesthetic Dentistry is a part of the Aesthetic Medicine. Usually dental prosthetic constructions are applied when dental tissues are damaged or one and more teeth are missing.
Aesthetic prosthodontics performs a slightly different function. It is usually done in the area of the frontal teeth in order to adjust their shape, color, position or to close the gaps between them. Modern dental materials used for aesthetic dental restorations have optical and mechanical characteristics that are very similar to natural teeth. Metal-free ceramics and zirconium oxide restorations look great, because their color can be perfectly adapted to the natural teeth. Also they are durable and wear-resistant. Today, instead of crowns and bridges with a metal substructure, silica, aluminum or zirconium oxides are more preferable.
The “white” aesthetics achieved by all-ceramic prosthetic constructions is inextricably bound up with the “red” aesthetics, the optimal position and condition of the gums. The symmetric smile thatis a combination between proper arranged teeth and a healthy gingiva, cannot be achieved without the frame of the lips. So called “gummy” smile is an excessive display of gum tissue in the upper jaw during smiling and it is a big aesthetic problem for most of the patients. Sometimes the periodontal surgery methods are not enough for correction of such condition.
