DENTAL EXPERT HUNGARY
Composite (white) fillings are tooth colored dental restorations made of a glass and plastic mixture and they are a great way to restore decayed teeth in an esthetically pleasing way. The color of the filling can so closely matched with the original color of the tooth that the final result is almost identical with the adjacent natural teeth. Composite fillings chemically bond to the teeth with a bonding agent, using a blue ultraviolet curing light. Composite fillings can wear out in a few years, so regular check-ups and if necessary replacements might be necessary in the long run. When composite fillings wear out, depending on the size of the cavity, your dentist might suggest that instead of fillings, inlays are placed in the cavity to restore the tooth to its fullest.
At Dental Expert Hungary, we use one of the latest innovations in chair-side teeth whitening. The Australian teeth whitening system that we use and recommend in our offices, utilizes the latest, state-of-the-art technology that ensures a safe, painless and effective whitening experience. It is possible to match shades to each other, whiten and re-whiten individual teeth one by one, until the desired shade of white is achieved. For more information, please inquire here.

First an impression is taken and the mold is sent to a dental lab, where your custom made teeth whitening tray will be made. After a couple of days, once you’ve had your whitening tray made by our technician, our cosmetic dentist will instruct you how to perform the whitening treatment in your own home. This home teeth whitening option is less expensive than chair-side whitening and is designed for those who are unable to make repeated visits to the dentist. It takes only 2 appointments to get your custom made teeth whitening trays made by a technician and after it’s properly fitted and you are taught how to use it at home, you can perform the whitening procedure at your convenience. We will provide you with the adequate amount of professional and safe whitening gel and you are always welcome to buy more at our office. Please avoid whitening gels that are sold from dubious sources over the internet, these can be potentially dangerous to your health. Always buy your refill whitening gel from a licenced dental professional to ensure a safe and effective teeth whitening process.
An inlay is similar to a filling, but it lies within the cusps (bumps) on the chewing surface of your tooth. An onlay is very similar, only larger than an inlay and covers part of the outer surface of the tooth. Inlays or onlays can be made of gold, composite resin (plastic) or ceramics.
Inlays and onlays are also called indirect fillings and they are similar to composite or tooth-colored fillings except they are made in a dental laboratory by a dental technician and usually require two visits before they can permanently placed to fill the cavity. Indirect fillings are a great way to restore severely damaged teeth, when not enough tooth structure remains intact to support a composite filling but the tooth is not so severely damaged that it requires a crown.
Benefits of inlays and onlays
There are some great benefits to inlays and onlays in comparison to fillings:
Inlays and onlays are made of a very durable material or resin and they can last up to 20 years. (depending on the condition of the tooth, oral hygiene and other factors)
Inlays an onlys can strengthen teeth by up to 75 percent, unlike traditional composite fillings
When correctly done, inlays and onlays prolong the life of the treated teeth and prevent the need for more dental treatment in the future.
Veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic (porcelain) or a composite resin material, which are bonded to the front of teeth. This procedure requires little or no anesthesia and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Veneers are placed to mask discolorations, to brighten teeth and to improve a smile. Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth’s color, size or shape. Veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline and damage due to an injury or as a result of a root-canal procedure. They are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. Patients with gaps between their front teeth or teeth that are chipped or worn may consider veneers. Generally, veneers will last for many years, and the technique has shown remarkable longevity when properly performed. Patients may need up to three appointments for the entire procedure: diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation and bonding. To prepare the teeth for the veneers, the teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the small added thickness of the veneer. Usually, about half a millimeter of the tooth is removed, which may require a local anesthetic. Composite resin veneers are generally done in one appointment. After the tooth is prepared, the dentist carefully bonds and sculpts the composite material onto your teeth. For ceramic veneers, a mold is taken of the teeth, which is sent to the laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers. This may take several days. Smile Design Enhanced with

What is Bonding?
Bonding is a tooth-colored resin material using adhesives and a high intensity blue curing light and also the general name for a cosmetic dental procedure that involves reshaping one or more tooth/teeth using composite resin to give teeth a new shape and color. Bonding can also help to close the spaces between teeth. The procedure got its name because the composite resin materials are bonded to the surface of the tooth. Bonding is typically used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored, decayed or chipped tooth.

What are dental implants?
Dental implants a great invention in today’s dental industry as they are able to provide artificial roots for once lost teeth. Dental implants are basically titanium screws, built into the bone to replace the original roots. After a few months, dental implants have the ability to integrate with the bony tissues in the jaw and provide a good base for crowns, bridgework or implant supported, stable dentures. This way even a total mouth reconstruction is possible, once someone has lost all of his/her teeth. Because the implant is securely placed within your jawbone, the artificial teeth will look, feel, and function just like your own teeth.
Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for one’s teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and annual dental cleanings.
The most important stages of preventive are the following:
It is very important to start cleaning your child’s teeth as soon as they erupt. We recommend visiting a pediatric dentist before your child’s 2nd birthday. Introduce kids’ toothpaste and a soft baby toothbrush at the earliest possible time.
At-home oral hygiene
The most important preventive technique that you can (and should) exercise at home, is brushing your teeth regularly and flossing at least twice a day, more preferably after every meal. This helps to remove dental plaque, (biofilm) a film-like coating that forms on your teeth after meals. If not removed, plaque can build up and produce dental tartar, a hardened, sticky substance with acid-producing bacteria that cause tooth decay and if left untreated, can lead to gum disease.
Sealants are mostly used in pediatric dentistry. Sealants are thin composite coatings that we place on the occlusal (chewing) surfaces of back permanent teeth to protect your child from tooth decay. Take advantage of this great technology and have your child’s teeth sealed to prevent cavities.
