What pathologies deals orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with poorly positioned teeth and bones. In children we correct the malposition of the bones and help to correct bad habits, and adults correct dental malpositions and bite in order to prevent cavities and periodontal problems.


What are the treatments as an alternative to conventional orthodontics?

Today there are custom-made appliances that are completely invisible. We have the lingual apparatus, which is fixed and is inside the teeth and there is absolutely nothing, allowing us to continue with our daily lives without hinder us. Then we have the transparent splints, which are the Invisalign apparatus also corrects us malposition of the teeth, they change every splint once every two weeks and is fully compatible with our daily activity. These two types of devices are as effective as conventional, but also have the advantage of aesthetics and comfort. These techniques must be performed by a certified specialist in both techniques in order to have an optimal result.


What other techniques besides there orthodontics to correct teeth?

There are different techniques to correct and align and permanently whiten teeth. Since the full cut and place e.max tooth crowns or crowns completely porcelain crowns or zirconium, up veneers, which have a much smaller carved. Among them is the technique Veneers Lumineers. They are a ultrafine veneers, 0.3 to 0.5 mm, and in most cases must not cut the tooth. This is very important, because there is no need to put anesthesia is painless and, not touching the tooth surface, we get that there is sensitivity and may be reversible. What does this mean? In a few years, if the person gets tired, or the patient gets tired of these veneers, simply veneers are removed and the same tooth structure remains. The Lumineers veneers are usually placed in two events. The first appointment would be for impression taking and shooting where the kind of smile and the type of tooth is also chooses one wants to take. Always, of course, advised by the certificate, very important specialist, and a second date would be placed porcelain veneers.

Then we must also not put provisional because the tooth is not size, there is no sensitivity because the whole structure of enamel is respected and are reversible. In a few years, if the patient does not want to carry more, you can remove the veneers and dental structure remains intact. Lumineers porcelain veneers, as its name suggests, reflectan very light, giving a natural feel and permanent whiteness.


How is the technique of the Lumineers veneers?

One of the great advantages of the Lumineers veneers is simplicity in its treatment. Not having to carve or make temporary, do not anesthetize. First you choose the kind of smile and if the patient is suitable or candidate for this type of Veneers. This is always asking and talking with a certified specialist Veneers Lumineers. Once you have made the photo studio and study occlusion smile is chosen, a measurement is taken and the Lumineers laboratories is sent.
