Maintaining Oral Health;
Clean Teeth and a Brighter Smile.
•Airflow and Teeth Cleaning
Millions of people have the problem of tooth loss in the world, mostly caused by periodontal diseases, tooth decay, or injuries. Until recently only dental bridges and dentures were possible to solve the problem of tooth loss, but now there are many different options to restore missing teeth.
Today dental implants are the most popular and common methods due to the fact that they are long-lasting, natural-looking, functional, and aesthetical.
Dental implants are among the most preferred dental procedures all around the world. Turkey is one of the most successful countries in dental implants, achieving a success rate of up to 98%.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that is inserted into the jawbone in place of a lost tooth or teeth, this merges with the bony tissue to serve as a natural tooth root.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that is inserted into the jawbone in place of a lost tooth or teeth, this merges with the bony tissue to serve as a natural tooth root. Titanium used in implants is considered a tissue-friendly material by the body. The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia without the patient feeling any discomfort.
Unlike crowns and dentures, an implant allows for better speaking and chewing functions, while at the same time, keeps the contours of the face looking natural. This treatment can be used at any age after bone development has been completed (16-17 Years of age in girls, and 18 for boys). There is no upper age limit for adults. An implant can be utilised by anyone with good general health. The elderly tend to lose more teeth and generally have some bone loss in the jaw, as a result, this age group is more likely to require implants.
Implant threads come in specific thicknesses and widths. The quality of the bone in the jaw is important, and the jawbone must have a height and width that fit the implant on the site of insertion. Without these considerations, an implant may not be successful.
A Dental Implant comes as three units;
1.Implant: a threaded titanium implant inserted into the tooth socket
2.Abutment: a post is attached after the healing of the site
3.Crown: attachment of the new permanent tooth.
By using the most advanced technology (Tomography 3-D CD together with specific software), we can measure the patient’s bone to assess what implant actions are required. We offer the latest computer guided implant technology to our patients, the advantages of this procedure are; less time spent in the dental chair, less discomfort and no stitches or swelling.
The our clinic, offers the best quality, ‘A’ class, teeth veneers for the patient who wishes for a perfect and aesthetic smile expeditiously.
Dental veneers are the best, and most time saving, choice for that perfect, ‘Hollywood Smile’. When applied, veneers are indistinguishable from the patient’s original teeth. our highly-trained and professional cosmetic team are experts in designing and applying the most accurate veneers aesthetically.
Investments in modern dental technology are an indication that we can offer the patient the highest standards of health care.
The dental coatings we provide are of high quality, class ‘A’, materials that offer increased resistance to breakage and abrasion, and are 100% compatible with oral health, while providing the desired colour match to the patient’s teeth:
While preparing a new smile design, or smile makeover, for our international patients, we pecisely examine many important dental criteria.
The patient’s age, dental analysis, gingival level, facial analysis, lip analysis and the patient’s wishes, are all taken into consideration before any treatment commences. A beautiful smile positively affects one’s daily life, and improves social relationships. Our ‘Smile Makeover’ not only provides the patient with a perfect smile, but also corrects other dental problems they may have. The treatment will provide the patient with a more youthful appearance and prevent unwanted facial wrinkles.
Our experienced cosmetic dentists use the latest technology in dental health equipment. Working with computer-aided 3D design software, integrated with CAD-CAM and CEREC technology, our physicians and technicians can expeditiously create a new smile for the patient, while leaving them with time to enjoy a pleasant holiday.
Our cosmetic dental specialists using the very latest in ‘Zoom Whitening’ dental technology, can provide tooth whitening in about an hour.
The procedure involves our dentist cleaning and checking the patient’s teeth. The patient’s gums are then given protection before a tooth whitening gel is then applied to the teeth. Using the latest technology, and under the proper supervision of our dentist, the gel is subjected to the world-renowned, ‘Zoom’ lazer teeth whitening light. This process can whiten the teeth by three or four grades.
Tooth colour varies from person to person. Cigarette smoking, excessive tea, coffee and acidic beverage consumtion, the lack of sufficient attention to dental hygiene and care can lead to yellowing or staining of the teeth. In some cases, structural defects in the womb or in childhood, or continuous use of medication may also cause dental colour variations. The ‘Zoom’ lazer whitening process is the expeditious and most economical procedure for all such cases.
In some extreme cases, the patient will be asked to use a whitening treatment applied at home while undergoing laser whitening at our clinic. In such cases, our cosmetic dentists, in cooperation with our laboratory technicians, will be able to explain how to apply and store the gel.
Two reasons for discoloured teeth;
If the patient is unable to achieve whiter teeth after following a proper oral and dental health regime (such as brushing and flossing), then the discolouration is probably caused by various medications, a congenital disorder or from the use of antibiotics.
Staining and yellowing of the teeth can be caused by bad oral hygiene, smoking, frequent drinking of tea, coffee, and acidic and sugary beverages.
Metal supported porcelain crowns can be used to replace a single tooth, or as a bridge. The metal alloy in the substructure of the tooth formation is extremely durable.
Metal supported porcelain crowns can be used to replace a single tooth, or as a bridge. The metal alloy in the substructure of the tooth formation is extremely durable but has low light transmittance. These crowns are more robust and durable, and are generally used for the rear teeth (molars) that are exposed to pressure when chewing. Metal supported porcelain crowns are often used in tandem with implants.
However, metal supported porcelain crowns are not often used to replace front teeth, as they do not transmit light effectively. When designing a new smile for our patients we recommend veneers with a higher permeability and more natural appearance such as zirconium and ‘E-Max’ for these anterior teeth.
The dental technologies available to us in our in-house laboratory allow us to create high-quality dental coatings over the metal alloy substructure of the crown. This is achieved using a fine spray for coating the metal before being baked in a high temperature oven. The result is a very durable finish that will harmonise with the patient’s natural teeth.
Due to their light transmission properties, ‘E-max’ crowns have a rich depth and vitality, blending perfectly with your natural teeth.
Due to their light transmission properties, ‘E-max’ crowns have a rich depth and vitality, blending perfectly with your natural teeth. In our laboratory, we can design a new smile expeditiously with crowns produced utilising our CEREC CAD-CAM technology, supported by a 3-D computer scanner and 3-D printer. ‘E-max’ crowns are extremely durable, are made from first class materials, offering colour-tone compatibility to match the patient’s existing teeth.
‘E-max’ crowns have a highly polished surface that doesn’t allow for the accumulation of bacteria and plaque. They are designed to ensure a perfect fit with the patient’s gums, preventing tooth decay of neighbouring healthy teeth.
While creating an aesthetic ‘smile design’ for the patient, careful preparation by specialist dental physicians is necessary when producing ‘E-max’ coatings.
‘E-max’ crowns have higher light transmittance than zirconium crowns, however, zirconium crowns are slightly more durable than the ‘E-Max’ crown. When fitted, ‘E-Max’ crowns are completely indistinguishable from the patient’s natural teeth.
The advantages of ‘E-max’ Crowns
• The materials used do not cause allergic reactions.
• Tartar accumulation does not occur on tooth surfaces.
• The material is resistant to fluctuations of temperature thus preventing heat damage to the coating.
• E-max’ Crowns are translucent, providing good light transmittance, thus giving the closest aesthetic appearance to the patient’s natural teeth.
Due to the light transmittance properties of the zirconia material the crown will have the same natural appearance of the patient’s existing natural teeth.
Porcelain crowns, incorporating a metal alloy foundation, have been used for many years, but lacking the light transmittance of natural teeth, leave the patient with a slightly grey result. These metal crowns can cause a greying of the gums over time, and can also be responsible for allergic reactions. In recent years, newer, healthier and more effective materials have been discovered, giving patients a more satisfactory end result.
Consequently, the tissue-friendly material, zirconium, is now being used in dentistry. Zirconium coatings now offer a similar strength to the previously used metallic alloy used in the past. Zirconium is translucent, does not cause discolouration of the gums, is non-allergic, and is resistant to corrosion, and has since become the first choice for dental restorations.
When are zirconia crowns recommended?
•Zirconia crowns are generally used for aesthetic reasons to create a perfect smile
• To cover or replace teeth with severe discolouration resistant to ‘tooth whitening’ procedures
• As a treatment for genetic tooth discolouration
• To correct for ‘diastema,’ or crooked teeth, as an alternative to orthodontic treatment
• To restore teeth with caries or that have been previously filled
• To restore a deformed tooth
• Can be used as a bridge or veneer for molars
• As a front denture fixed to an implant, or implants
Treatment for a dental bridge involves creating multiple crowns joined together, these are anchored on healthy teeth on either side of a gap created by one or more missing teeth.
For example, if a tooth is missing in the lower jaw, the corresponding upper tooth may tend to drop downwards. The healthy teeth abutting the lost tooth may lean over towards the gap, causing disruption to the patient’s ability to chew correctly. Over an extended period of time this will cause major deterioration to the configuration of the teeth. Dental bridges are very important to maintain the structural integrity in the mouth.
Our expert technicians can create extremely high quality dental bridges that fit perfectly and will last many years.
Dental bridges are easy to maintain, a daily oral care routine of brushing and flossing is recommended.
Why is a Dental Bridge required?
• For teeth with extreme decay
• Replacement treatment for lost teeth
• For patients with a chewing disorder
• For advanced gum disorders
• To correct jaw or joint disorders
• To bridge areas of bone loss
• For patients requiring complete implant treatment
• To support weak teeth
GENERAL ANAESTHESIA SERVICES
Our specialist anaesthetists can safely administer general anaesthesia, as well as the intravenous administration of sedatives.
PERIODONTOLOGY & PERIODONTOL DISEASES
Periodontology analyses and treats diseases of the soft tissues that surround and anchor the teeth (periodontal ligament & gums) and the harder bone tissues.
The periodontal ligaments, commonly abbreviated as PDL, are a group of connective tissue fibres that essentially attach the tooth to the alveolar bone. This ligament surrounds and feeds the teeth, covers the jawbone, and securely anchors the teeth in the jaw. Care of the PDL is as important as the care of the teeth.
How to recognize healthy gums
• The gums are pink and have a firm consistency
• No gingival bleeding during brushing of the teeth
• A distance between the tooth and gum is around 1-1.5 mm
What is a periodontal disease?
The Periodontal diseases are inflammatory conditions affecting the tissues that support gums and teeth. Periodontal diseases are responsible for 70% of tooth loss in adults. Such diseases can be successfully and easily treated when diagnosed early.
The maintenance of natural teeth, easier chewing and better digestion are the benefits of prevention and treatment of periodontal diseases.
Gingivitis is the early warning sign of periodontal disease. The gums will bleed, look red, and over time, become inflamed. Although this may not cause discomfort in the early period, if not treated, the disease may progress to periodontitis, and result in irreversible damage to the alveolar bone that supports the teeth and gums.
Periodontitis is a more progressed phase of periodontal disease. The alveolar bone, together with other tissues that support teeth, is damaged. A “periodontal pocket” of localized infection develops between the tooth and gum. The tooth becomes loose as the disease progresses, and may lead to extraction.
Periodontal diseases not treated in a timely manner may lead to loss of teeth and the development of several systemic diseases. Visiting your dentist regularly, and removing bacterial dental plaque with daily oral care routines (brushing teeth and using dental floss) is crucial to maintaining dental health.
What are the symptoms of Periodontal Disease?
• Bleeding of the gums while brushing teeth
• Red, swollen and sensitive gums
• Gums that separate easily from the teeth
• Inflammation between the teeth and gums
• Loose teeth, or gaps that develop, or become wider between teeth
• Change in the position of the upper and lower teeth when biting
• Change in, or disruption, of consistency of partial denture
• Persistent bad breath
Causes of Periodontal Diseases
• Hormonal changes
• Malnutrition and irregular eating habits
• Teeth grinding (bruxism)
• Diabetes mellitus
• Other systemic diseases
Treatment of Periodontal Diseases
• Medication prescribed by the dentist should be used after scaling and curettage.
• If the disease has severely progressed, periodontal surgical procedures (gingival surgery) should be performed. Surgical procedures may be required to prevent recurrence of, and protect, against the disease in cases of dental recession and bone loss.
• Surgical and clinical treatments may be performed using conventional methods, or a laser may be used for some treatments if deemed appropriate and recommended by the dentist. Laser therapy has been widely and successfully used for gingival diseases in recent years.
INLAY & ONLAY RESTORATIONS
These aesthetical solutions are usually used when there is not enough dental material remaining, or for teeth that have been too damaged to warrant veneering.
What are the differences between inlays and onlays?
The difference between the two is in the area of the tooth they cover. An inlay is similar to a filling, but used between the tubercles on the chewing surface of teeth. An onlay is often used to cover one or more dental tubercles.
From what material are they made?
An inlay or onlay consists of a ceramic or fibre-reinforced composite. The appropriate material is selected based on the construction of the adjacent tooth, i.e. a natural composite or porcelain tooth.
Why are these an option?
They can be used for a root canal treated tooth or severely decayed teeth, where the decayed portion is cleared to reveal insufficient healthy tissue for a filling. In general, for root canal treated teeth or severely decayed teeth, the decayed portion is removed leaving a reduced amount of healthy tooth material to abut the adjacent tooth/teeth. If there is no contact point with the adjacent tooth, the food you consume is easily deposited in between, causing problems to the dental tissue and gums. The inlay or onlay is prepared on a mock-up, where the desired anatomic form and contact are achieved, before the final inlay or onlay is attached. The material is more resistant to wear and chewing pressure than conventional filling material.
What is the life of an inlay or onlay?
The life of an inlay or onlay depends on the material from which they are made, the condition of the original tooth treated with inlay or onlay, the chewing forces, oral hygiene of the patient, and regular visits to the dentist. An inlay or onlay usually functions healthily for decades.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Root canal treatment is essential in cases where the patient has either, infection in their tooth root, or, where the patient is suffering from undue sensitivity.
What is root canal treatment?
The primary objective of dentistry is to maintain a patient’s healthy teeth and their ability to chew normally.
On occasion the dental pulp within the root canal might become inflamed due to the invasion of unwanted bacteria. If this is the case, the dental pulp tissue has to be removed, the root canal cleaned and treated, and the canal space filled with a tissue-friendly filling.
Today, with the development of modern technology, endodontics, or root canal treatment, is performed painlessly and quickly, and depending on the condition of the tooth, can be completed in one or two visits to our clinic.
How long will a root canal treated tooth last?
It is always better to maintain an original tooth rather than replace it with an implant or dental bridge, as it is more important for oral health to maintain healthy teeth. Therefore, performing root canal treatment on an inflamed tooth to restore it, rather than removing that tooth and inserting an implant or dental bridgework is advised.
Teeth that have undergone root canal treatment will remain for many years, or for life, with good oral and dental healthcare.
Factors affecting the long-life of a root canal treated tooth:
• A root canal treated tooth must be veneered to prevent further bacterial incursions into the root canal
• Individuals must take special care for their teeth after root canal treatment, and to avoid eating hard foods, especially to protect any dental veneers from damage.
What options are available after root canal treatment?
Canal Fill Fiber Post
In badly damaged teeth it may be necessary to provide extra support to securely hold a crown in place, in which case a ‘Canal Fill Fibre Post’ is required. With the result of advancing technology, ‘fibre posts’ are now light translucent, and with a crown made from similar material, the tooth will appear completely natural. The ‘Fibre post’ treatment procedure can be completed within 15-20 minutes when performed by an expert using proper equipment and correct techniques.
What comes after a root canal treatment?
The crown of the tooth must be permanently restored after the root canal treatment, giving the patient the ability to use the tooth normally. This restoration, if performed using the correct techniques and may serve the patient for many years, or even for life.
GUMMY SMILE CORRECTION
A ‘Gummy Smile’ is a condition where a person’s teeth appear abnormally small when smiling. Treatment is determined according to the appearance of the gums and periodontal condition of the teeth.
The treatment options include lifting and modifying the gums to the extent permitted by tissues and/or surgical lip repositioning. Both of the procedures are minor surgical interventions, performed under local anaesthesia and are of about 30-40 minutes in duration. Botox has also been commonly used for the treatment of the ‘Gummy Smile’ condition in recent years. Our clinic provides Gummy Smile correction treatment by a Specialist Periodontologiest who will perform the operation using the latest Laser technology.
LASER GUM TREATMENT
In approximately one hour our clinic’s expert gum disease specialist, utilising the latest laser-assisted treatment, will restore gum health, and remove any discomfort.

Composite fillings have many advantages compared to metal fillings. The colour of composite fillings can be chosen to match the natural tooth colour of the patient.
What is a White Filling?
Macroscopically, two or more materials, which may include quartz, silicon dioxide and zirconia, are mixed and bonded to a resin before being applied to the tooth.
Initially this filling material was only used for front (anterior) tooth fractures, but with later technological advances, the newer materials produced could withstand the heavy chewing subjected to the rear molars.
What are the Advantages of White Fillings?
• The structure of the composite white filling material is that it is much stronger and has more durability than metal fillings.
• When the decayed part of the tooth has been removed it leaves a lend cavity. In the past metal fillings were used to fill the cavity area, and it was necessary for the dentist to create a suitable surface to receive the metal filling, thus eroding the tooth further. However, this process has been eliminated for composite fillings, as the material will attach to any surface.
• White fillings do not create any cracks or fissures in the tooth when subjected to pressure.
• The white filling material creates a better seal with the tooth, protecting it from any possible leakage.
• The dentist can create the realistic shape of a tooth, as the white filling material is very malleable, and can only be hardened by exposure to intense light after the sculpting has been completed.
• As with amalgam fillings, there is no staining of the surrounding tissues.
• The white composite filling material is very versatile.
Who Benefits From Composite Fillings?
• Those with spaces between their teeth
• Those who want to change their tooth colour and/or shape
• Those with dental cavities
• Those whose teeth sizes are irregular, and wish for an even smile
• Those with dental fractures
