Restorative And Esthetic Dentistry

What is the definition of restorative and esthetic dentistry?

Restorative and esthetic dentistry provides the patient with a healthy and esthetic mouth and smile.

Within restorative and esthetic dental procedures, treatment of decayed teeth, discolorations (bleaching), sensitivity, diastemas, fractured teeth, teeth with abnormal shapes, tissues and forms and slight malpositions are performed.

These procedures are carried out using light-cured composites, porcelain fillings (inlay-onlay), fiber applications, bleaching methods, desensitizers, laser technology and laminate applications.

Since it is possible by lasers to work without touching the teeth or gums, pain and sensitivity due to friction does not occur. Laser applications are contemporary types of treatment specifically preferred by apprehensive dental patients.
