Everything you need to know about cosmetic dentistry


Beautiful and healthy teeth are not only the strongest asset of your beauty, they are also a key indicator of your general state of health. Moreover, a beautiful smile also brings great benefits to your daily life. Many studies have shown that healthy teeth can improve one's social and professional life by boosting self-confidence, which in every way leads to self-actualization.

If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your teeth, today's cosmetic dentistry offers numerous procedures that can immediately fix them.

What is the difference between traditional and aesthetic dentistry?

In general, traditional dentistry is focused on oral hygiene and the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the teeth and oral cavity - it can roughly be said that it deals with dental problems that require necessary treatment.

Cosmetic dentistry, on the other hand, focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth, mouth and smile. Therefore, treatments in aesthetic dentistry are not a matter of necessity, but of desire and choice.

At Dentum, we offer a wide range of procedures that will not only change the appearance of your teeth, but also beautify your smile and boost your self-confidence! In this blog, we present the procedures that are most often chosen by patients: veneers, the Free Hand Bonding method and professional teeth whitening.


If you have always dreamed of having perfectly straight and white teeth, a real Hollywood smile, then veneers are the ideal solution for you.

Veneers are extremely thin porcelain shells, designed to cover the front surface of natural teeth. These shells improve the color, shape, size and position of the teeth to correct irregularities and give an aesthetically appealing smile.

If you are interested in veneers, you should know that this procedure is not something that any dentist can do or can do quickly, but requires highly developed aesthetic skills, since veneers are not something that can simply be bought - they are custom made - just for you and your smile, to suit your needs and wishes for a long time.

At Dentum, we know that in order to create perfectly executed veneers, we must take into account that every patient is different, every smile, every tooth and every situation is different. When you decide to visit Dentum to get the smile you've always wanted, the process looks something like this:

  • First, the dentist will explain the entire procedure and talk to you about your wishes and expectations.
  • Then the dentist grinds a thin part of the tooth surface and shapes the front side of your tooth to prepare the surface on which the porcelain veneers will be placed.
  • After that, they will take an impression of your teeth, so that the laboratory can create veneers that will fit perfectly.
  • After taking impressions, your dentist will place temporary veneers on your teeth.
  • At the same time, you will choose the best of your veneers and when you decide on the color and shape of the veneers, your impressions are sent to the laboratory.
  • In just a few days, veneers that will fit you perfectly will be installed

Free Hand Bonding

If you want to beautify your smile without grinding your teeth for veneers or crowns, then the free hand bonding method is the right choice for you.

With this method:

  • They repair rotten teeth
  • They repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Improves the appearance of discolored teeth
  • They close the spaces between the teeth
  • Makes teeth look younger
  • It changes the shape of the teeth
  • It protects the part of the tooth root that was exposed when the gums recede
  • But - how is it done?

In recent years, dental technology has taken huge steps forward: now it is possible to use composite materials, which were usually used for fillings, for the aesthetic improvement of teeth. These materials are almost perfectly adapted to all the properties of human enamel and can be used to reshape your smile without affecting the healthy tooth structure.

The biggest advantage of this procedure is that it is minimally invasive and can be performed in one visit. However, as we like to say in our clinic: it takes very sophisticated skills to imitate nature. By this we mean that although the materials are exceptional and world-class, it is important that this procedure is carried out by an expert who has knowledge, experience and the right technique.

Professional teeth whitening

One of the most striking features of beauty in a person are beautiful white teeth. That is why this procedure is the most popular procedure in aesthetic dentistry.

Although there are many, often cheaper alternatives to teeth whitening on the market, only have your teeth whitened by a professional. It may seem a bit more expensive at first, but if you have gum disease, receding gums, decayed teeth or cracks (which often go unnoticed), unprofessional teeth whitening can cause significant damage, which may be irreversible.

That is why it is important that a professional dentist examines the condition of your teeth and oral cavity..

At Dentum, we help you achieve a perfect white smile with the help of the Philips ZOOM whitening procedure, which whitens your teeth an average of 8 shades whiter in just one hour. Philips ZOOM is one of the best methods for this purpose, because it whitens your teeth faster and the results last longer compared to other whitening methods.

  • The following affect whitening results:
  • Enamel quality
  • Eating habits and nutrition
  • Age
  • Tobacco consumption (smoking or chewing)
