Dental Aesthetic & Smile Design

1. The basics of dental aesthetics

Dental aesthetics is more and more a priority for our patients. It is based on criteria related to the shape, alignment or colour of the teeth. The quality of the gums and the smile line are two other important aspects to take into account.

2. What types of aesthetic care?

In order to preserve, regain or create a harmonious smile, we offer many multi-disciplinary techniques for the gums (muco-gingival plastic surgery), the bones (bone surgery) and the teeth themselves :

  •  Replace one or more missing teeth

    • the placement of single or multiple implants (left picture) 

    • the use of a bridge (right )

    • sometimes additional surgery is necessary: pre-implant surgery to strengthen the bone (bone graft) and/or post-implant surgery to cover the gum (gum graft).

  •  To correct the shape of a tooth or restore it

    • replacing old, unsightly (colour) and leaky amalgam fillings with cosmetic materials

    • reconstruction of fractured incisal angles (inlay)

    • the placement of veneers on the visible side of the tooth

    • placing a crown to cover an entire tooth

    • reconstitution of eroded (chemical attack) or worn (mechanical wear) teeth (inlay / onlay)

    • increase in the visible part of the tooth (coronal elongation)

  • ​To correct or lighten the shade of the teeth and regain a bright smile

          The covering of gingival recessions solves an aesthetic problem, hypersensitivity to cold or even tooth preservation.

           - aesthetically, to hide the colored root of a devitalized tooth or next to an implant so that the result is more natural.

           - at a functional level, to prepare the gum for a future dental or implant prosthesis.

         When a too large part of gum is discovered by the upper lip, and the ratio "tooth-gum" is not considered aesthetic: too much gum, or not enough tooth.
