Answers:
  1. How safe is the teeth whitening treatment?

    Research has shown that the teeth whitening treatment which is performed with the use of the Zoom 2 method and under the supervision of the dentist is safe both for the teeth and the gums. Many dentists think that this is the safest aesthetic dental treatment which is available at present. More than 15 years of experience and over 500 medical journals verify the safety of this treatment. Even after millions of teeth whitening treatments that have been performed worldwide not even one case of medical problem related to a teeth whitening treatment, that has been proposed by a dentist, has been reported.

     

  2. Are there any side effect?

    Some patients may experience some sensitivity to their teeth during the treatment. This symptom will disappear in a period from 1 to 3 days after the completion of the treatment. This symptom should not worry the patient as it is completely harmless. Nevertheless, the dentist may modify the treatment schedule so as to treat even this harmless symptom.

     

  3. How long do the results of the teeth whitening treatment last?

    After the teeth whitening treatment the teeth are always brighter than they used to be. Undoubtedly due to certain pigments and smoking the teeth may lose some more their brightness in a period of one or two years. Nevertheless the brightness of the teeth can be restored again very easily with a teeth whitening course at home in a period of one to two days.

     

  4. Why are zircon dental crowns and bridges considered better than porcelain dental crowns and bridges?

    The difference between the two is significant. Zircon is a high strength material (Zircon 1300 Mpa – Metal 700 Mpa) with both excellent applicability, as due to its high translucency the aesthetic result is better, and also biocompatible and thermoinsulating characteristics for the protection of ground teeth. All the above create the best conditions for long lasting results ( sustainability in tooth abrasion and thermoinsulating characteristics )

     

  5. I have old amalgam fillings and I would like to replace them. Which are your suggestions?

    All the old and unhealthy amalgam fillings can be replaces by zircon dental crowns and bridges. The results are excellent from both an aesthetic and also a functional point of view.

     

  6. What are the applications of the laser in dentistry?

    During the last years the use of laser has been expanded in different fields of dentistry. Nowadays, it is possible to use laser for minor surgical procedures in the mouth’s soft tissues ( gums, frenoctomy), for orthodontic treatment, teeth whitening treatment etc with absolute success. The use of laser also enables the dentist to use less anaesthetic during the previously mentioned treatments.

  7. Is it possible to get a filling without the use of a dental hand piece?

    This can be achieved with the use of the Er Yag Laser. This laser can both be used at primary and permanent teeth. The fact that it is possible to get a filling without the use of a hand piece is an additional reason that motivates small children to visit the dental clinic.
