There is no doubt that we are in a time of humanity in which the cult of image and aesthetics is extremely important. This explains the great boom of cosmetic products, beauty treatments, aesthetic treatments, and how not the medical specialties related to aesthetics: plastic surgery, maxillo-facial surgery, cosmetic surgery as a compendium of several specialties, etc.. The Odontoestomatología has not been alien to this phenomenon and today the demand of aesthetics in our consultations is increasing. But, what is dental aesthetics: making "white" fillings ?, teeth whitening?

How is it possible that all those actresses and actors, models, television presenters, etc.. Have those beautiful smiles and those white teeth?

This question is asked daily by people who visit our practice, and the answer is always the same:

Some of those people are lucky enough to have a charming and pretty smile, and the others rely on good dentists who know how to design a beautiful smile .

The question that follows is inevitable:

Design a new smile?

Our answer:

This is what our aesthetic team spends most of the time and effort .



Dental Aesthetics is a very broad discipline within the world of Dentistry, which covers a large number of treatments, sometimes even from different specialists, and which must be directed and coordinated by professionals who know and master these techniques to perfection. Today we can "design a smile" and realize that dream of many people: "I would like to have my mouth like ..."

The smile is the most frequent facial gesture in the human race and is more frequent in women than in men. A large number of the population considers it essential to have a beautiful smile to achieve social success. However, another large number is not happy with his current smile and is willing to change it. How many times have we seen a beautiful face hiding a smile, with a forced gesture on the lips to hide unsightly teeth? How many times have we seen a hand hiding an unsatisfied smile?

In our smile our age, our sex, our sensibility, even our character traits are represented. By modifying our smile, we can even influence our external image and the way other people perceive us. In our center, which I have the honor to lead, we are very sensitive to the aesthetic desires of our patients and join the efforts of specialists in Orthodontics, Oral Surgery, Prosthodontics, Implantology and Dental Aesthetics proper, to achieve not only an unbeatable aesthetic result in routine treatments, but design new, aesthetic smiles and with the requirements and conditions that the patient asks us. Nowadays, thanks to innovative techniques and materials such as injected porcelain sheets with thicknesses less than 0.5 mm, bonding techniques with direct adhesion to dentin composites, bleaching agents, crowns and bridges without metal, etc.. , along with a deep knowledge of the golden rules of dental aesthetics, proportions, dental anatomy, and how it all influences the appearance of the smile, we can create "TV smiles" as our patients say. And all this with minimally invasive techniques that avoid cutting the teeth to fix them.
