The infrastructure of zirconium is a white colored mineral. The infrastructure of the porcelain crown is normal metal.
Zirconium and porcelain veneer can be applied to all teeth, regardless of front and back teeth. However, the fact that the infrastructure is white metal allows the zirconium coating to pass the light better and provides a more aesthetic appearance.
Because it creates a natural and aesthetic appearance, zirconium coating is mostly preferred for anterior teeth.

Teeth cleaning does not harm the teeth. On the contrary, if not treated, tartar causes bleeding and infection in the gums. In order to get the best results in many dental treatments, the treatment is started by cleaning the teeth according to the needs of the patient.
As a result of the panoramic film taken before the examination and the examination of the specialist dentist, the indication changes depending on the position of the tooth, the eruption condition and the jaw structure. Since the treatment planning directed by the specialist dentist will be the healthiest solution, it is recommended to proceed in this direction.
When floss is used with the right technique, it does not cause any damage to the teeth and gums. However, before use, the technique of use should be learned by consulting a specialist dentist.

Gum bleeding while brushing teeth is caused by gum disease. With the treatment planning created by the gum specialist and the correct brushing technique, gum bleeding can be prevented.
Hot-cold sensitivity in the teeth can be caused by gingival recession or tooth decay. With the examination of the specialist dentist, the cause of the problem is determined and the most accurate treatment method is determined and the hot-cold sensitivity is eliminated.
After the filling treatment of the tooth, the complaints of tingling may increase depending on the proximity of the caries to the nerve. But this pain is not expected to be a pain that does not sleep at night.
If the tingling is light and momentary, there is no problem and it is expected to pass with a decreasing momentum day by day. The patient should go to the specialist dentist immediately and have an examination in case of prolonged (1-2 hours) aches and pains at night.
The first priority of the specialist dentist is to save the sensitive tooth and tries to treat the teeth without going to root canal treatment.
Despite experiencing intense pain, patients do not come to the dentist’s examination and try to relieve their pain at home with their own methods. Such situations cause inflammation in the teeth and unfortunately often cause tooth loss.
Gum bleeding is the most important indicator of inflammation in the gums. If this warning is not taken into account, the gums will pull back and the jawbone will melt, and as a result, healthy teeth without caries will be lost.
Regular brushing will greatly prevent gingival bleeding.
The biggest cause of bleeding is the bacterial communities that are stuck in the gingiva and stuck to the teeth that no longer come out with brushing. Bacteria hidden in the gums make up most of the tartar. For this reason, tartar cleaning (tartar cleaning) should be done regularly.
One of the reasons for grinding/clenching teeth is the stress experienced in daily life. First of all, you should try to stay away from stress, but if you can’t do this, you can see a dentist.

In cases where the night plate is not enough, botulinum toxin (botox in dentistry) treatment can be started. This procedure is applied to the chewing and facial muscles, preventing patients from grinding/squeezing their teeth.
The structure of the mouth and jaw varies from person to person. Under normal conditions, porcelain teeth are completed within 7-12 days. Today, digitally designed porcelain can be completed in 1-1.5 hours with various milling units.
With digitally designed porcelains, the patient’s pain complaint can be minimized by minimizing the margin of error without the need for a dental technician. It is possible to obtain personalized porcelains that are very compatible with the teeth with a sensitivity of one percent of a millimeter.
Technological innovations are important in every field. The important thing is that technological innovation is sustainable. There is a rapid acceleration towards digital in dentistry. Now, teeth scanned using an intraoral camera can be designed specifically for the person’s mouth structure and produced using porcelain or zirconia blocks in three-dimensional scrapers.

In our clinic, professional and state-of-the-art equipment is used in teeth whitening treatment and the bleaching process is performed under the control of a specialist dentist. The whitening process is not a treatment in which any symptoms can be seen, except for the small tingling felt during the procedure. Therefore, there is no harm.

First of all, children should be taken to a dentist, even if they do not have a tooth problem. It is very important that only a small examination is made on the first day by introducing the clinical environment. Thus, when the procedure is performed, the child’s response to the treatment will be more positive.
The operations can be explained to children in a simpler way, by making some coding in a way they can understand. For example: instead of piercing – buzz, tickle the tooth; instead of a needle – it’s time for the tooth to sleep; instead of examination – let’s count the teeth, instead of pulling the tooth – let’s move it.

Smoking indirectly causes tooth decay. Since smoking reduces the flow of saliva, the mouth cannot be cleaned naturally, which increases the likelihood of tooth decay.
The floss is very important as it can reach the intermediate areas that the toothbrush cannot reach. Because most of the time, caries starts from these intermediate areas and spreads. Adding the use of dental floss to the habit of brushing will greatly reduce the formation of caries.

If conditions that develop later or go unnoticed cause problems during pregnancy, the best time to intervene is between 3-6 months. (Approval is requested from the doctor who monitors the medical condition of the pregnant patient during pregnancy before the intervention.)
Panoramic film and digital tomography, which are imaging methods used in dentistry, are recommended to be taken beforehand in cases of planned pregnancy.
