This is the early stage to set a periodontitis, although not all cases progress to that, if the proper care is taken in advance.

Fortunately, dental implants are now relatively easy, affordable and they are identical to your real teeth, as long as they are placed by qualified dentists at a leading office, like Bella Smile.
They are artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When they are placed in your jawbone bellow the gum, they connect with your natural bone, becoming a strong base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called the crowns. It is necessary having healthy gums and bones to support it.
This is not only an issue that must be taken to the aesthetic side, but the lack of one or more teeth can compromise chewing, speech and even the movements of the mouth. In addition, it will prevent resorption shrinkage of the underlying jawbone, lateral movement of adjacent teeth and over-eruption of opposite tooth. Because of this, it is fundamental that this procedure is done properly by skilled professionals.
The high quality of services guarantees long-term success after surgery with conventional oral hygiene care.

Veneers are thin custom-made porcelain facings to fit your mouth, and are individually attached to the existing teeth to improve their appearance. Developed to look like a perfect natural tooth, they are used to cover stains, chips, decays, to close gaps, or any irregularities. They are durable and extremely versatile.
This procedure usually requires two visits. On the first appointment, the teeth are prepared to accommodate the veneer, and a thin layer of the enamel from the front surface will be removed. Next, we will take impressions and temporary veneers may be placed in the meantime, to give our patients the opportunity to trial the planned design in their own mouths. About two weeks later, the customized veneers will be permanently bonded to the teeth. We also see our patients a few days later to check all is well when they’ve had some time to use them.
The benefit of this kind of treatment is that you can strategically place just one or two porcelain veneers and quickly achieve the beauty symmetry you desire, and have an effect that traditionally needs months of orthodontic therapy.
Bear in mind that before any cosmetic service starts a checkup is necessary. Any recommended restoration, hygiene and gum disease need to be addressed.
