In our 21st century world, appearances are important when it comes to relationships, careers, and many other aspects of life. First impressions, in particular, no longer depend on clothing and status symbols like cars and upmarket home addresses. Rather, people are considered for employment and other situations based on their personality. A person’s smile, confidence and the way they speak are primary indicators of their disposition, all of these can be compromised if they have dental issues. This issue has fuelled the rise of cosmetic dentistry as a necessity for modern-day life, and our cosmetic dental lab works with practitioners doing everything possible to help patients achieve the success they deserve.
Traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of oral conditions. Cosmetic dentistry, however, focuses on enhancing the appearance of the patient’s teeth, mouth and smile. Most treatments and services are elective, although in many cases they also provide restorative benefits.
Trends in Cosmetic Dentistry
Where in the past many dentists advocated the extraction and replacement of damaged teeth, these days the majority favour more conservative techniques aimed at preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. Dental ceramics plays a large role in achieving this, with extensive usage for various types of improvements. Some of the popular treatment options crafted by our cosmetic dental lab for clients include:
- Inlays and Onlays
These indirect fillings are made from porcelain or composite materials and are a long-lasting and attractive way to correct tooth decay and other structural damage. While dental fillings are inserted and bonded during a dental visit, inlays and onlays are manufactured in a cosmetic dental lab and then transported back to the dentist for fitting.
- Dental Veneers
Ideal for patients with gaps in their teeth, or those who have been unsuccessful with teeth whitening procedures, dental veneers are manufactured from composite materials, porcelain laminates or dental ceramics. These can also be produced using the CAD/CAM dentistry method, but whatever option your practitioner recommends for a patient, Baluke Dental Studio can create a product that is consistent with our standards of quality.
- Dental Implants
These artificial tooth replacements are the gold standard of prosthetic dentistry. They not only compensate for tooth loss, but in most instances the patients enjoy the additional benefit of an enhanced smile, a more youthful appearance, increased confidence and greater ability to speak and chew effectively. Whether the natural teeth have been lost as a result of dental caries, root canal failure, gum disease, damage caused by trauma, regular wear and tear or congenital defects, it can have a devastating effect on the patient’s life and future. Developed in a cosmetic dental lab according to the specifications from the dentist, implants enjoy a high rate of success.
The Benefits of Baluke’s Dental Ceramics
While many of these cosmetic dentistry devices can be manufactured from various materials, dental ceramics have an excellent reputation for providing a clinical solution and fulfilling the patient’s esthetic expectations. The increased demand for pressed ceramic and CAD/CAM copy milled restorations confirms the reliability of these types of devices. Our cosmetic dental lab enjoys the expertise of DAVID MOORE to supervise our busy ceramics department, as well as PETER NAGY working chairside and with consulting doctors.
We deliver high quality, accurate products based on your specifications to your office, and our products provide the best option for your patients.
