The aesthetics of a smile belongs to the category of aesthetic dental medicine. We all want to leave a good first impression, both in private life and in the business world. How can you beautify your smile without undergoing difficult, time-consuming jaw reconstructions?
In Dr. Vučković's clinic we use completely harmless and non-invasive methods for your perfect smile:
Smile aesthetics - whitening for white smile
If you have healthy, intact, endodontically untreated teeth, and you are not satisfied with their shade, the optimal therapy is teeth whitening.
Did you know that there are several whitening methods? You can do it at home, but you can whiten your teeth much better in a dental clinic. The result is longer lasting compared to homemade whitening.
What are the types of teeth whitening?
Power bleaching - bleaching with a laser lamp
Whitening at-home - whitening with individual tooth splints in combination with gel
Walking bleaching - whitening of avital teeth (when the nerve has been extracted) using a gel
Superior aesthetics - dental veneers
If you want to change the shape, appearance, color, size of your teeth, especially the front ones, dental veneers are the best possible choice.
They are minimally invasive or completely non-invasive. Depending on the type of dental veneers, they require only minimal surface grinding of the tooth or at all. Likewise, if you have diastema (the distance between the front two upper teeth), veneers correct this problem very quickly and successfully. Dental veneers are a modern response of dentistry to aesthetic needs of today's person. Candidates for veneers must have healthy, intact teeth, without large fillings.

Teeth whitening is a branch of cosmetic dentistry. Dental medicine today offers several types of whitening. You can whiten your teeth at home or in the dental office.
Did you know that there is no age limit for teeth whitening?
What benefits do patients get from whitening?
• provides protection against caries if the recommended preparations are used
• it is harmless
• it is painless
• does not damage tooth enamel
• has a long-lasting effect
• achieves lighter teeth by several shades
Teeth whitening - methods
• home bleaching
• professional whitening in the dental office
Bleaching at home - individual dental splints
At home, you can bleach your teeth with splints and gels. For this type of whitening, you need to visit us in the office to make individual splints with grooves on the front, in which a special gel with carbamide peroxide, fluorine and potassium nitrate is applied.
How to do this type of whitening at home?
Splints are worn at night, but also during the day if the patient has enough time. In a few days, the desired shade will be achieved. The dye stabilizes within fifteen days after the oxidation process is complete. Bleaching at home is a slightly longer process, but it is performed when it suits you, in the comfort of your own home.
Professional teeth whitening in the office
Power bleaching is a method of whitening teeth with a laser lamp and hydrogen peroxide-based gel. Today it is the most popular and safest way to whiten the teeth.
While whitening your teeth, you can be completely relaxed because the method is harmless, painless, and very comfortable.
Walking bleaching - a method of whitening avital teeth
This is a specific method of whitening used to whiten teeth that have had root canal treatments. It involves bleaching the tooth from the inside of the tooth. Root canal treatments may discolor teeth due to the materials used to fill the root canal, discoloration breakdown of blood in the root canal, and medications used in the root canal during the treatment, to name but a few.
We call it walking bleach because you walk around with it in your tooth.
Give a smile a new whiteness!
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers, which we make in the Dr. Vučković Practice, are the pinnacle of aesthetic dentistry because with them we can correct almost everything:
• tooth size
• tooth position, ie minor orthodontic anomalies
• diastema - the distance between the front upper units
Veneers are made of ceramics. These are thin ceramic sheets that stick to the surface of the teeth and are most commonly used on the front teeth.
Who are the candidates for dental veneers? (H2)
Candidates for dental veneers are all those patients who have healthy (intact) teeth without large fillings and endodontic treatment, and:
• want to change tooth color (can't or don't want to do teeth whitening)
• have smaller fillings on the front teeth and do not want crowns
• want to change the shape of the teeth
• want to correct the line of the dental arch
• have a gap between the upper teeth
Why are dental veneers a popular aesthetic method?
Dental veneers are fixed-prosthetic replacements that are made in several variants. These are very sophisticated, thin flakes that are applied to the surface of the tooth. So we have ceramic, composite, and non-prep flakes.
We also divide them into ready-made or individual dental veneers.
Ready-made veneers are factory-made and do not look completely natural on the tooth. They must be further refined and adjusted in the patient's mouth. What their downside is that they come in a limited number of shapes and colors.
Individual veneers are made in a dental laboratory or immediately in the office-based on the impression of the patient's teeth. They are aesthetically superior to ready-made flakes.
Unlike dental crowns, dental veneers require minimal surface grinding of the teeth, or in the case of non-prep veneers, the teeth do not need to be ground at all. This is their main advantage over dental crowns and that is why people today opt more for this type of therapy.
Ceramic flakes are most similar to natural enamel in their properties and thus make the most beautiful restorations, but the production is longer than composite.
Composite veneers are made of the highest quality highly aesthetic composites that completely mimic the aesthetics of natural teeth.
