Aesthetic Dentistry

Aesthetic dentistry primarily focuses on enhancing the visual aspects of the teeth, including restoring a full and even dental arch, as well as making the teeth brighter and whiter. Beyond improving your smile’s appearance, aesthetic treatments can also solve functional dental issues, ensuring you not only look great but also have a healthy set of teeth.

Aesthetic dentistry can help to:

– Align crooked or misshapen teeth
– Eliminate dental stains and whiten teeth
– Fill in gaps within the dental arch

Treatments in aesthetic dentistry are carried out on a healthy, clean mouth. Thus, every aesthetic treatment starts with a thorough dental examination. Together, we’ll craft a personalized treatment plan based on this initial assessment. If any dental issues like tartar or cavities are discovered during the examination, these will be addressed before proceeding with any aesthetic enhancements.

Schedule a complimentary consultation for aesthetic dentistry, and we’ll design the optimal solution tailored specifically for your needs.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Are you troubled by:

– Damaged teeth
– Stubborn stains or discolorations on your teeth
– Incomplete dental arches

Dental crowns and bridges can address these issues. They offer a way to construct a complete and flawless set of teeth. A single extensively damaged tooth can be restored with an artificial crown, which is affixed on top of the filed-down natural tooth. Bridges, on the other hand, are used to fill gaps in the dental arch by adding one or more artificial crowns into the row of teeth. The natural teeth adjacent to a missing tooth gap are filed down to support the bridge.

Dental Veneers

Are you concerned about:

– Uneven teeth or deformities
– Persistent stains or discolorations on your teeth

Dental veneers can easily correct deformities and discolorations of teeth. Veneers can be used to close gaps between teeth, extend worn teeth, or reshape teeth. A dental veneer is bonded to the visible surface of the tooth, effectively concealing enamel irregularities and stains in your smile.

Veneers can be made from composite material or ceramic. Ceramic veneers offer a durable, potentially lifelong solution.

Orthodontic Treatment

Are you concerned about:

– Misaligned teeth
– Crowded or gapped dental arches
– Bite issues

Orthodontic treatment can correct dental arch crowding, tooth misalignments, and bite discrepancies. Beyond enhancing appearance, straightening teeth also significantly impacts the overall health of the muscles and joints in the mouth and facial area.

At Helmiäinen, our orthodontic services are primarily provided by specialist orthodontists. We offer treatments using traditional braces or the Invisalign method. In addition to specialists, some of our general dentists, such as Riku Kukkola and Roope Karhu, also offer treatment with clear aligners.

The Invisalign system uses transparent aligners that are less conspicuous than traditional braces. These aligners are removable, allowing unrestricted eating and drinking during treatment. They also make it easier to maintain oral hygiene compared to traditional braces. However, in certain cases, traditional braces may achieve better results than aligners.

Teeth Whitening and Baking Soda Cleaning

Are you troubled by:

– Yellowing teeth
– Stained teeth

If tooth discoloration or stains are a concern, teeth whitening or intensive cleaning can be options. Baking soda cleaning is a deep clean that doesn’t actually whiten teeth, but it does make them appear brighter and shinier and removes stains.

Laser teeth whitening is an effective yet safe method for whitening teeth. The lightening effect is immediate, but the whitening process continues for a few days after the treatment. We also offer at-home whitening kits for your convenience.

Don’t Forget Home Care!

Diligent home care is essential for creating and maintaining a beautiful smile. Proper oral hygiene at home can prevent both minor and major dental issues. Oral health is an integral part of overall health and quality of life. In severe cases, infections in the mouth can spread to other parts of the body. Many common diseases can be prevented by taking good care of your oral health.

Remember these tips if you want a beautiful and healthy smile:

– Brush your teeth morning and evening for at least two minutes each time, preferably with an electric toothbrush.
– Ensure you brush gently and cover all surfaces of your teeth.
– Use dental floss or interdental brushes daily.
– Make sure your toothpaste contains fluoride.
– Chew xylitol gum or take a xylitol lozenge after meals.
– Avoid snacking and choose water as your drink of choice to quench thirst.
– Limit your intake of sugary, acidic, and staining foods and beverages.
– Visit your dentist for an annual check-up and regular tartar removal.
