Routine dental cleaning
A scale and polish is a cleaning which removes tartar from the teeth. Hand-scalers, polishers and ultra-sonic instruments will be used to achieve this goal. The cleaning is usually performed by an hygienist but it can also be performed by your dentist.
Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a dental treatment used to enlighten the color of your teeth. It's the best solution to enhance the brightness of your smile.
In our practice, regarding the restrictions on concentrations of whitening products in Europe, we provide to our patients home whitening trays. We fit you with custom mouth trays that hold professional whitening gel and you will wear these trays as directed according to your preferences and sensitivity.
To maintain a nice white color, you may need to touch-up every years or every 6 months, according to your coffee, tea, or wine consumption.
A filling is necessary when a decay has destroyed a part of the tooth. The dentist needs to remove the decay and then, place a material to recreate the morphology of the missing tooth structure.
We consider that composite resin (white fillings) is the filling material of choice for several reasons. For example, composite fillings preserve the natural tooth structure and are more aesthetic than amalgam fillings.
