Before After Cosmetic DentistryCosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is any procedure performed by specialized dentists to improve the look of a smile. Despite what most people think, cosmetic dentistry is not a single fixed procedure for anybody who wants their smile to look better. Cosmetic dentistry is a result that is achieved after a research process and different procedures like veneers Or fixed prosthodontics , laser teeth whitening,gum reshaping , or even braces.

In the end, professional dentists can determine the correct cosmetic method, taking into account the patient’s desire and capabilities.

 

Changing the color of the teeth to an aesthetic white color is possible using different methods, like laser teeth whitening (Bleaching) or fixed prosthodontics like veneers and crowns.

 

Solving the teeth gap problem is possible using different methods, like braces or fixed prosthodontics  like veneers and crowns.

You can solve this problem with different procedures like braces or fixed prosthodontics .

The dimensions and shapes of the teeth can be changed using fixed prosthodontics (veneers or crowns) . This is the only way we can control the length and width of the teeth, in addition to how they stack their relationship to each other, and the color of the teeth.

This is all possible thanks to the computer-based Smile Design technology. The manufacturing process is also computerized, while the final touches are added manually by our dental lab technicians and our cosmetic dentists.

The veneer is a thin layer that is manufactured from certain materials and affixed to the front surface of the teeth. This helps us shape the smile, the dimensions, and colors of the teeth permanently after preparing the teeth for the veneers. This is done by specialized doctors to avoid any damage to the teeth or gum.

This is all possible thanks to the computer-based Smile Design technology. The manufacturing process is also computerized, while the final touches are added manually by our dental lab technicians and our cosmetic dentists.

We usually need to drill or remove  a part of the front surface of the tooth similar to the thickness of the veneers, which is a fraction of a millimeter. In some cases, we don’t need to drill  the teeth at all when we use 3N Veneers.

We use three different types of veneers at Capital Dental Clinic:

  1. CAD CAM Veneers
  2. Hybrid Veneers
  3. 3N Veneers

The cost of veneer per tooth varies based on the type of veneer used:

  1. CAD CAM Veneers cost 4,000 EGP per tooth.
  2. Hybrid Veneers cost 5,000 EGP per tooth.
  3. drill-free veneers made inside our own dental lab cost 6000 EGP per tooth
  4. 3N Veneers cost 9,000 EGP per tooth.

There are always offers and discounts available. You can find out more by contacting us on the phone or via Whatsapp by clicking on the Whatsapp icon.

CAM CAD Veneers are veneers that have their shapes and properties designed and manufactured by a computer from the German E-Max material. This makes them ideal in terms of size, dimensions, and overall aesthetics to suit different cases. CAD CAM Veneers require drilling  the teeth in the range of a half millimeter, and they require two sessions to install, with the final fitting possible within 24 hours.

Hybrid Veneers combine the properties of computer-based design and manufacturing with the hand skill of cosmetic dentists and dental lab technicians. This creates a final result that is aesthetic and full of details that resemble the look of natural teeth. This type of veneer requires two visits that are four days to a week apart.

3N Veneers is the only technology that doesn’t require teeth drilling  or an anesthetic injection. It’s one of the most advanced cosmetic dentistry techniques in the world, and the veneers are manufactured in the 3N Company in Germany and Dubai. Installing these veneers requires two visits that are 3 weeks apart.

You can find a list of the doctors authorized to use this technology by the 3N Corporation on their official website: www.nnnveneers.com

Dr. Ahmed AlKaffas and the Capital Dental Clinic are authorized by 3N Corporation and are considered pioneers of this technology in Egypt.

Deciding whether a case is suitable for using 3N Veneers is the responsibility of the treating cosmetic dentist. This is done after examining the case and learning more about the capabilities of the patient. In general, 3N Veneers are suitable for cases that don’t require a major intervention or have teeth protrusion.

Your treating cosmetic dentist is the best person to determine the type of cosmetic veneer that is right for you. After examining your case and learning more about your desired outcome and budget, they can recommend the right type of veneer for you.

In the end, every type of veneer has its unique advantages. All the types of veneers we use are some of the best worldwide, and they all can greatly improve your smile and get stunning cosmetic results.

Deciding the number of veneers needed is done after the examination and analytical photography. This helps find out the number of teeth that are visible during a smile, and how it would change after the cosmetic procedure to determine the number of needed veneers.

This number is usually between 8-10 veneers for each jaw arch.

Just like all r fixed prosthodontics , the person getting the veneers should be at least 18 years old. However, it’s not recommended to have dental veneers before the age of 21.

Dental veneers usually require two sessions that are 48 to 72 hours apart, according to each case.

Dental veneers last for seven years and can last longer if cared for properly by adhering to the care instructions and periodic check-up visits.

The color and shape of veneers doesn’t change over time. In fact, it’s considered a perfect solution in terms of longevity and continuity, as long as it’s installed by cosmetic dentistry specialists and cared for properly by regular cleaning and periodic check ups.

Yes. Veneers are considered a great solution for smokers and people who enjoy drinks that cause teeth discoloration, as they prevent them permanently.

Yes. You can replace old veneers with new and better ones in two sessions only. The first session is for removing the old veneers and taking the dimensions, and the second is for installing the new veneers.

The crown is a cover that is manufactured from special materials to cover the teeth from all sides to change the shape of the smile, as well as the color and dimensions of the teeth. The installation is done after preparing the tooth for  the crown by specialized dentists to avoid any damage to the teeth or gum.

Crowns and veneers are manufactured from the same materials and are indistinguishable from each other once they are installed. The main difference between them is in the number of teeth sides they cover. Veneers cover the front of the teeth only while crowns cover all sides of the teeth.

The choice between them is made based on different factors like the strength of the enamel layer, tooth decay, large teeth gaps, jaw mismatch, bite type, and many other factors that are evaluated by the treating dentist.

There are two different types of crowns:

  1. E-Max
  2. Zircon

Both are used in cosmetic dentistry and achieve exceptional results, with the difference being:

  1. Zircon is stronger  so it is usually used in molars
  2. E-Max is more aesthetic so it usually used in frontal teeth

In the end, the treating dentist is the one capable of choosing the right type for each case.

The cost of a Zircon or E-Max crown is 4,000 EGP. There are always offers and discounts available. You can find out more by contacting us on the phone or via Whatsapp by clicking on the Whatsapp icon.

The lifespan of a dental crown is 10-15 years and can last longer if cared for properly by adhering to the care instructions and periodic check-up visits.

Yes. You can replace old crowns with new and better ones in two sessions only. The first session is for removing the old crowns and taking the dimensions, and the second session is for installing the new crowns.

This is a cosmetic procedure that makes the color of the teeth enamel 4-6 degrees lighter than its natural color. Laser is used inside the clinic in a session that lasts 45-60 minutes, with immediate results.

Laser teeth whitening (Bleaching) is completely safe. However, we don’t recommend doing it more than once per year, as repeating it might cause problems like enamel sensitivity.

Laser teeth whitening (Bleaching) costs 5,000 EGP, with a free cleaning and polishing session included. There are always offers and discounts available. You can find out more by contacting us on the phone or via Whatsapp by clicking on the Whatsapp icon.

The effect of laser whitening (Bleaching) lasts from 6-12 months, based on the level of dental care and other factors like smoking, and consuming beverages that cause teeth discoloration, like coffee.

  1. Laser whitening makes the teeth 4-6 degrees lighter, and only lasts for 6-12 months.
  2. Whitening teeth with fixed prosthodontics  makes it possible to reach the exact desired color, in addition to controlling the shape and dimensions of the teeth and designing the smile in general.

Braces  can solve problems like teeth gaps, crowding, and protrusion. However, they don’t allow us to change the color or dimensions of the teeth, and it is more suitable for younger patients. On the other hand, fixed prosthodontics  like crowns and veneers allow us to solve the same problem, in addition to color and dimensions faster than braces.  

Yes. We can work on the existing teeth and compensate for the missing ones with dental implants or fixed prosthodontics.

A composite or white filling is one of the modern teeth filling materials that come in a different variety of natural teeth colors. This makes it more suitable for frontal teeth fillings.

Composites can be used to cover the external surface of the frontal teeth to give them a cosmetic treatment that is cheaper than veneers. We don’t recommend such practice as these composites are weaker and suffer from rapid color change and can cause gum inflammation and dental caries.

Yes. All gum problems like shape or color can be treated with laser to reshape the gum or change its color.
