How to have the smile of your dreams?
With dental facets, crowns or bonding, Dr Erhan Saliev and Dr Nikos Stamoulis know the best solution for your individual case
What is the best way to have a beautiful smile –with crowns or dental facets?
Dr Erhan Saliev: We always start our aesthetic protocol with the aim to improve the smile while considering the particular case. Some cases can be treated with facets only. We use the method when significant tooth filing is not required. However, when filing is needed, we revert to the good old crowns. This is the difference: crowns are more invasive than facets.
What materials do you use for crowns and which one is best?
ES: We always take into consideration the patient's expectations and financial means. If they have high requirements and they can afford it, we use materials that will meet these expectations: zirconium, zirconia ceramic, ceramic. However, the most expensive and the best material does not guarantee the best results. Sometimes we can achieve excellent results with metal ceramic crowns. As you can see in the photos, when we have done our work diligently, with the needed skills and expertise, when we have had enough time for the procedure and the patient was cooperative, the end result is flawless. Our goal is always to give the patient more than they expect.
How durable are facets?
ES: It depends on their exploitation. Facets are very thin structures, between 0.3 and 0.5 mm. They are extremely hard and look very good. However, patients with veneers should abstain from biting hard fruit or anything where the facet can get stuck and break. If facets are used in accordance with our recommendations and depending on the patient's age, they can go beyond 10 years. The patient's periodontal status is also a factor. With age, the gum can recede, revealing a part of the underlying tooth. Sometimes we are able to fix this with another material thus extending the facet's life. As a whole, it all depends on how the patient maintains their facets.
What is bonding?
Dr Nikos Stamoulis: Bonding is rehabilitation of dental tissue surface with composite material adhesion. It is an alternative to facets and crowns as it does not require so much filing and spares the tooth. Often, we do not even need to file the surface. The layer that we place on the tooth is very thin, about 0.1-0.2 mm, and does not increase the frontal teeth volume significantly, which is important for the aesthetics.
What should we know about bonding?
NS: Bonding is more sparing on the dental tissue than facets, and is much less expensive. It does not change its colour with time. If a veneer gets broken, the whole structure should be replaced. When bonding gets broken, we can easily add up the missing part in a couple of minutes. Bonding's lifespan is 3-5 years, but with proper maintenance and care it can extend to 10 years. In the past two and a half years in Saliev Dental Care we have made over 1,000 bondings. About 20 patients have returned with damaged bondings, mostly due to accidents. We even had a patient who fell down some stairs and broke some facial bones, but his bondings were intact.
