Aesthetics and teeth whitening
Following a cavity or fracture, we have to reconstitute the affected tooth; depending on the size of the carious lesion, the type of tooth (incisive, canine, premolar, or molar), we propose different methods of reconstitution.
A composite resin element made by the dental laboratory that is embedded exactly in a pre-cleaned and cut tooth cavity, following a caries or major fracture, in order to reconstitute the anatomical shape of the tooth.
The inlay/onlay therefore makes it possible to consolidate the rest of the tooth permanently. Contrary to traditional filling techniques (amalgam, sealing…) it does not exert any pressure on the tooth walls, thus preventing them from fracturing.
With this technique, it will be possible to treat weak to moderately dilapidated teeth, in the event of greater damage, a ceramic crown will be considered.
There are two types of bleaching:”in the chair” and “ambulatory“.
The first takes place entirely in the office in one or two sessions. A hydrogen peroxide gel is deposited by the dentist on teeth to be whitened after protecting the gums. This treatment is totally painless.
As for the outpatient treatment, it requires the prosthetist to make custom-made gutters based on the impressions made in the dental office. The treatment is done at home with a lower dosage of hydrogen peroxide gel.
The gutters are worn half an hour twice a day for 15 days. The effectiveness over time of bleaching depends on the patient’s lifestyle (high consumption of coffee, tea, tobacco or not).
In case of sensitivity, it is imperative to stop the treatment and consult your dentist.
