Cosmetic Dentistry consist in all those procedures made to improve the teeth appearance modifying their color, shape, size and even their position (slightly). All this in a very conservative way, these are minimal invasive procedures.
To obtain the best results in Dental Cosmetics, it is important to possess the ability, materials and techniques to help you design and create beautiful smiles.
During 25 years we have obtained success with our patients, accomplishing and exceeding their expectations. During these years we have solved hundreds of cases, and every day we keep moving forward with the best personnel and technology, making us the best option for your smile.
To accomplish our objectives we use a combination of procedures between Zirconia and Dental Porcelain.
CosDent has been ranked and maintained as Costa Rica´s best clinic in porcelain cosmetic dentistry.
Dental porcelain is a material that has physical properties very similar to the ones of teeth´s enamel, which makes it an excellent restoration material.
Among the main advantages of using this material we have:
- Excellent esthetics
- Color stability
- Biocompatibility, with mouth tissues (it does not cause allergic reactions)
- Highly resistant to abrasion and attrition
- Translucency, mimics teeth´s natural enamel.
- A perfectly polished surface that prevents plaque from depositing so it favors periodontal health.
Porcelain Laminate Venners
Wafer-thin shells of porcelain, which are bonded onto the front surfaces of teeth. This method is used to modify the esthetics on front teeth.
They are considered to be conservative restorations because they require minimal tooth reduction (about 0.5mm).
In CosDent we design your smile and create the veneers in our own laboratory. This procedure is used mainly for teeth that are stained, chipped, or misaligned; it makes an amazing transformation on the patients smile in a short period of time.
As a result of its excellent biological properties Zirconia is considered the best material available nowadays for aesthetic prosthesis in dentistry and dental esthetics.
Dental Zirconia prosthesis can last for many years since they are very resistant to abrasion and fracture, even more resistant than natural teeth.
Among the advantages of this material we have:
- Translucency, very similar to natural teeth
- Optimal adjustment
CosDent has a laboratory specialized in Zirconia, with the latest technology for precision and perfection in dental prosthetics.
We use Zirconia from the brand AmmanGirbach®, as well as a milling machine and a specialized oven from the brand Ceramill Zi, from the same company. Both have an excellent reputation at an international level when it comes to manufacturing highly innovative laboratory products and equipments.
Crowns are replicates of dental pieces that are severely decayed, damaged, and compromised. They can strengthen the compromised tooth structure and provide a highly aesthetic result as well.
They can be made out of porcelain or over a nucleus of a stronger material, to give it more consistency. In CosDent we use Zirconia, in this way we get the benefits of both materials, the excellent esthetics, the great color stability and brightness of porcelain and the extraordinary strength of the Zirconia.
