I always cared about my teeth; I went for check-ups regularly and followed my dentist’s advice. I hoped that my efforts would not be in vain. However, several years ago, I underwent some procedures that lowered my tooth strength.

This time, I’ve put all my trust in the Smile Vision team, and everything went very well. I'm not happy that I have implants and crowns... but, at least, they look ok and natural, and that's the only thing that reassures me. As for my experience, what can I say more? I trusted them, otherwise I wouldn't have done this. Sori is both my friend and my dentist, and through her I also met Dr. Zaharia. They are all nice, friendly, and funny people, and most of all, they are professionals. I have recommended them so far and I would recommend them anytime :)

Case specifics

n an attempt to restore the central incisor, after removing the aesthetically unsuitable old crown, it was found that the tooth was destroyed to the gum level. In such a case, no restoration attempt has a good long-term prognosis. Extraction was performed, and a dental implant was inserted immediately after, followed by a temporary crown.

The difficulty of the case consisted in preserving the aesthetic appearance of the central incisor, the tooth with the highest visibility, which dominates the smile and facial expressions.

The responsibility is extremely high, because the slightest mistake causes an imbalance with a major impact on aesthetics.

Approach

Stages

  • Root canal treatment, Reconstruction
  • Crown ablation, Extraction, Implant insertion, Temporary crown

Two months after the intervention, the final prosthetic treatment was performed (3 all-ceramic crowns, 3 veneers) on a healthy and stable ground.

Mădălina

I'm Madalina, I'm 26 years old, and, like any woman, I focused on my physical appearance, teeth being an important business card for me.

I can't say that I had terrible teeth, but rather problematic enough to keep me restrained from smiling naturally.

Because of that, I became increasingly frustrated and, no matter how confident I was, I always felt that something was missing.

That's when I went to Smile Vision, and I can say that my life has changed. Paul and Sergiu understood perfectly what I wanted, and I could smile freely after 7 months.

I used to hide my smile until recently, but I can hardly stop smiling now.

Thank you, beautiful people!

Case specifics

Mădalina wanted a radical improvement of her smile; an aesthetic, beautiful smile, without diastema (gap between teeth) and whiter teeth, maintaining a natural colour and appearance.

The first step was to simulate her future teeth, to provide an image of the final result before starting treatments.

The challenges of this case were:

  • insertion of the implant into a limited space because the extracted tooth (left lateral incisor) was a tooth with no bone around it
  • implementation of 3 different prosthetic solutions (veneer / all-ceramic crown / implant) on 3 different teeth (intact natural tooth / natural coloured tooth / implant).

Approach

Stages

  • Smile simulation using the WAX-UP technique performed by the technician and a MOCK-UP in the clinic, for the actual experience of the end result.
  • Crown ablation, extraction, implant insertion, connective tissue graft, temporary crown
  • The final prosthetic application after 2 months, consisting of 4 veneers and 2 crowns.

Olimpia

I like to enjoy life, laugh, and be optimistic about everything. I'm a happy person.

Due to an improper treatment done a long time ago, that didn’t evolve well, I didn't feel comfortable at all with myself, with my teeth and I started to worry. I gathered my courage to check and ask for an opinion, because I couldn’t ignore my problems and discomfort. I found someone eventually, who was confident, had the courage to find a solution and worked fast... I was so glad that I could solve this issue in no time. They explained to me all the risks: the first implant, the first experience… I trusted them completely. I knew I was in good hands and they would do the right thing.

Everything healed very nicely, without pain, swelling or other problems.

I continue seeing you because I trust you. Health is everything to me. You are involved and dedicated; you are professionals, and do your job with love... it's different... I feel safe in here.

Case specifics

Olimpia was not entirely satisfied with her teeth aesthetically. There was a crown on the side tooth that required replacement. When the old crown was removed, we found that the tooth was badly destroyed and could not be saved. This required tooth removal and insertion of an implant.

For someone who is happy and smiles a lot, the challenge was to keep the teeth intact (no missing teeth), during the healing and implant osseointegration.

Implant insertion and the application of a temporary prosthetic treatment were performed in a single session. The final treatment was applied after 2 months.

Approach

Stages

  • Smile simulation using the MOCK-UP technique performed in the clinic, for the actual experience of the end result.
  • Crown ablation, extraction, implant insertion, connective tissue graft, temporary crown
  • Application of the final prosthetic, consisting of a ceramic crown on individual zirconium abutment, after 2 months.

Marius

I came to the Smile Vision clinic for small procedures. After many unpleasant experiences that led to the loss of two molars, I became reluctant and aloof. When I saw how things were being done here though, everything has changed. I gained confidence and courage. I gave them free reign to intervene for my necessary dental implants and everything went smoothly and quickly.

During a check-up, Dr. Paul Zaharia asked me if I also wanted to do something with my two incisors. As I've lived with them for as long as I can remember, I've never had a problem with that.

Still, he made a simulation for me, I tested it for a few days, and I was extremely excited. I had no idea what a difference an aligned, harmonious, and beautiful smile can make... It felt really good. Without second thoughts, I went for a final treatment: gum adjustment and veneer application... the best choice.

I honestly feel fulfilled, satisfied and can’t stop smiling… I sometimes wonder whether I'm exaggerating. :) I'm glad I found you and followed your recommendations.

Case specifics

Marius wanted his two lateral incisors to have a normal, well-harmonized shape.

The teeth were very small and had an ectopic position.

The gingival bone was very withdrawn in the area of extractions.

Approach

Stages

  • Simulation smile using the WAX-UP technique performed by the technician and a MOCK-UP in the clinic, for the actual experience of the end result before starting the treatment.
  • Veneer application with minimal tooth preparation (not necessary for one tooth at all)
  • The following were performed in the area of extractions: implant insertion + connective tissue graft + healing coping.
  • A simple and very predictable technique was used, which results in a shorter waiting time (than for bone additions), fast recovery and minimal discomfort.

The number of interventions was minimal: the healing coping was applied during the intervention and the missing teeth were applied after 2 months.

Loredana

I have always been terrified of dentists. That was my biggest fear until I met Dr. Paul Zaharia, a wonderful man with outstanding finesse. I forgot what a toothache and fear of dentists meant. Now I feel fulfilled and I can smile with confidence.

I looked in the mirror, smiled and told myself:

"I can finally smile.”

Poza Loredana
Before

After

Case specifics

The previous dental procedures have had a negative emotional and social impact on Loredana. She was not smiling, she was even afraid to talk and was in pain when she came to us.

After solving the emergencies, I presented her the possibility of having healthy teeth, without problems in the long term. The freedom to smile freely convinced her and she decided to no longer postpone the commencement of treatments.

After removing the old prosthetic treatment, I found that it was necessary to remove the central incisor and replace it with an implant. The implant could not be inserted in the same session with the extraction, which led to a new aesthetic challenge.

Other challenges were the lack of compliance of the initial prosthetic treatment with the aesthetic/functional guidelines and the patient's anatomy in itself – lack of facial symmetry and of the symmetrical positioning of jaws in the plane of her face.

Several temporary prosthetic treatments were needed to test the functionality and adaptation to the new position.

Approach

Stages

  • Treatment of teeth that were not part of the prosthetic works.
  • Removal of the inadequate prosthetic treatments and extraction of teeth that could not be saved. In order to eliminate any functional and social impact, temporary prosthetic treatments were carried out throughout the interventions.
  • All teeth that required interventions were treated and, two months post-extraction, an implant was inserted instead of the upper central tooth, along with an immediate temporary crown.
  • Following implant osseointegration, all prosthetic treatment in the upper side was performed with Monolithic Zirconia crowns and bridges.

Andreea

Any complex I had before, because my teeth weren’t straight, is now gone.

I am no longer stressed when I smile; I look in the mirror with confidence and I’m glad to see the smile I’ve always dreamed of.

The doctors here and my experience for the past 5 years are something completely different.

I felt a lot of openness, honesty and trustworthiness, this is why I want to continue coming here.

After

Case specifics

Out of the desire to have a much-desired smile, Andreea had been wearing braces for a long time. While wearing them, the affected teeth had been subjected to endodontic treatments and the old fillings, which were not aesthetically pleasant, were replaced.

After removing the braces, Andreea was still not satisfied with her smile 100%.

Dental veneers were the only option to have the much desired smile she had always dreamed of.

We discussed together the expected results and how her future smile would look like.

Starting on a healthy background, after the gum treatment to stop the periodontal disease progression, a simulation (mock-up) was performed with the final teeth image.

After a few weeks, the final all-ceramic veneers were made and applied.

Approach

Stages

  • Teeth cleaning - testing for periodontal germs - periodontal treatment.
  • Tooth retreatment and filling replacement
  • Orthodontic brace removal
  • Gum treatment to stop the progression of the periodontal disease arising from orthodontic treatment
  • Smile analysis and simulation using the WAX-UP technique performed by the technician and a MOCK-UP in the clinic, for the actual experience of the end result
  • Tooth preparation for making and cementing the ceramic veneers

Case specifics

Dan came to us with minor discomforts caused by his sensitive teeth that were heavily abraded and with chronic, local, periodontal issues. The abrasion was the result of intense bruxism, while periodontal issues occurred because of the lack of several teeth.

At the initial consultation, he was informed of the poor general condition and of the risks of not starting the treatments: the rapid loss of bone and gingival support of the existing teeth.

The patient was not convinced of the need for immediate intervention and preferred to "wait". After a few months, he returned to the clinic complaining of acute sensitivity in the front teeth, which exhibited a high degree of attrition. As the nerve was reached, his teeth were sensitive even to the slightest temperature differences.

Approach

Stages

  • Immediate resolution of cavities/sensitivity and periodontal stabilization.
  • Treatment of the remaining teeth (endodontic treatments, reconstructions with fiberglass pivots), performing temporary prosthetic works to functionally and aesthetically test the new relationship between mandible and jaw, by applying temporary works.
  • Realization of the final prosthetic treatments with Monolithic Zirconia (satisfactory aesthetic effect, 100% compatibility, increased resistance).

Do you know that moment when you have an idea, but you don't know where to start and how to complete it? That's how I got to Dr. Paul Zaharia, where, to my great surprise, I had received clear and concrete advice for a complex and complete treatment scheme, at the end of which I got what I wanted: healthy and beautiful teeth.

I discovered a team of dedicated, passionate and professional dentists. I enjoyed every step (even if it is said that one can't go happily to the dentist) and I can say that every visit to the Smile Vision Clinic is like a small family reunion. I RECOMMEND it, it’s worth 10 stars!!!

Thank you, Dr. Paul Zaharia! Thanks Smile Vision!

Case specifics

Aesthetic challenge - public person / frequent social interaction.

Problems with the gums / periodontium supporting the teeth.

Lack of proper masticatory functionality.

We started with the periodontium / gum stabilization, so that subsequent treatments could be performed on a stable and healthy basis. Extraction of problem teeth and immediate insertion of implants along with temporary crowns to restore mastication and for a perfect aesthetic / functional effect. Bone augmentation and gum grafts were performed during the intervention, to compensate for the physiological bone resorption, which inevitably occurs after any extractions.

A simulation with the final teeth was performed.

All-ceramic veneers and final crowns were realized.

Approach

Stages

  • Teeth cleaning - testing for periodontal germs - periodontal treatment.
  • Molar extractions and implant insertion with bone addition, connective tissue graft, and temporary crowns.
  • Wax-up / Mock-up - simulating the new smile and "wearing" it for a few days so that we have a confirmation that everything is okay aesthetically and functionally.
  • Tooth preparation for making and cementing the veneers.
  • Achievement of a bruxism splint to minimize the effect of bruxism over time = rapid tooth wear and possibly veneer loosening.

Mihaela

Due to a small accident in my childhood, my front teeth got damaged. Over time they got an unsightly look which bothered me.

Knowing Dr. Mario for a long time, and seeing with my own eyes other works he made, I plucked up my courage to embark on this journey with him. I came to the Smile Vision Clinic to “fix” my front teeth and ended up improving my entire upper arch thanks to the simulation done in the first sessions.

Everyone around me has noticed the change, and I am more than happy with the result. It was simply a pleasure to come to the clinic, Dr. Mario and Carina were first and foremost professionals but also friendly. I highly recommend them!

Case specifics

Mihaela came to us with persistent pain in her front teeth, which presented high discoloration caused by canal treatments carried out many years ago.

The first stage was to solve the emergency by treating the toothache, followed by the reconstruction of the teeth and the placement of temporary crowns.

The WAX-UP and MOCK-UP technique were used to perform the simulation of the smile, to see from the beginning what the final teeth would look like.

As a result of polishing, scanning and accurate measurements, the prosthetic work was perfectly suited and no adjustments were needed. This was followed by the definitive cementation of the completely ceramic crowns on the incisors, of the veneers on the lateral front teeth, canines, premolars and of the zirconium crowns on the molars.

Approach

Stages

  • Hygiene and periodontal treatment
  • Performing canal treatments on the front teeth
  • Smile analysis and simulation using the WAX-UP technique performed by the technician and MOCK-UP performed in the clinic, for the real experience of the final result
  • Periodontal surgery, gingivectomy on teeth
  • Application of temporary dental veneers
  • Making and applying complete ceramic crowns on incisors, veneers on lateral front teeth, canines and premolars and zirconium crowns on molars

Ionuța

One of my childhood memory is related to dental problems, which have tormented me for ages. I always wanted to have white, straight teeth, so that I could smile freely.

When I realized that you cannot leave your teeth care and your health in anyone’s hands and based on the recommendations received from many acquaintances, I chose the Smile Vision clinic and, in turn, I further recommended their services.

This clinic has gained my trust. I believe that you have shown a lot of professionalism, punctuality, quality, ability to adapt the services (appointments) according to patient’s needs. For me, the immediate effects after visiting the Smile Vision clinic are related to my health, but also to aesthetics.

You are welcoming and professional. Thank you!

Case specifics

At the first check our patient was suffering from irritation and bleeding gums.

It was necessary to remove part of the dental work, and it became obvious that the teeth needed to be treated again. Also, due to the fact that two of the upper lateral teeth were missing, the initial prosthetic work was performed in one piece, and all teeth were joined together, offering a major aesthetic disadvantage.

The work was neither aesthetically nor functionally compliant and our patient let us repeat all the treatments and give her a smile as beautiful as possible with no pain nor functional problems.

For various reasons the curvature of the front teeth followed the upper lip line instead of the lower lip, as it is normal. The challenge also consisted in reducing this aesthetic discrepancy through the prosthetic work.

Approach

Stages

  • Removal of the previous/existing dental work and periodontal treatment (all gums were inflamed - antibiotic treatment for the gums was needed)
  • Insertion of two implants instead of edentulous gaps (lateral incisors) with bone augmentation. After stabilizing the situation (about 3 months), we shaped the gum by means of new temporary crowns (this time also on implants) so that the gum was as natural and as aesthetic as possible
  • Previous temporary work on the individual teeth - a simulation of the final work - based on which we were able to track the aesthetic improvements needed for the final work

Am avut o lucrare în partea de sus de un an de zile, care din pacate mi-a creat probleme( dureri și inflamații). Temerea cea mai mare a fost să nu ajung la proteză dentară.

Am venit în clinica Smile Vision la recomandarea fiicei mele, echipa Smile Vision mi-a inspirat încredere și am realizat toate intervențiile complexe aici.

Deși procedura în sine a fost greu de suportat (5 extractii + 6 implanturi + aditie de os), domnul doctor a avut multă răbdare cu mine. A fost profesionist și uman.

Acum am învățat să mă acomodez cu noi dinți , pot să mănânc și să zâmbesc.
Îi recomand cu tot dragul pentru profesionalism.

Un mare Mulțumesc!!!

Particularitatea cazului

Pacienta noastră s-a prezentat cu o lucrare necorespunzătoare funcțional și estetic, realizată în altă parte cu 2 ani în urmă.

Fiind o persoană zâmbitoare și veselă, pe toată durata tratamentelor era important să luăm în considerare ca pacienta noastră să aibă o dantură completă.

Din punct de vedere estetic exista o asimetrie inestetică atunci când pacienta zâmbea, aspect care putea să fie corectat și care a fost luat în considerare în realizarea cazului.

Abordare

Etapele

  • Îndepărtarea lucrării superioare și extracția unui rest radicular infectat.
  • Realizarea unei lucrări provizorii frontale până s-a vindecat locul extracției.
  • După 1,5 luni s-au extras cei 4 dinți restanți și au fost inserate 6 implanturi cu cape de vindecare și grefe de gingie.
  • S-a realizat regularizarea festonului gingival (am nivelat gingia și osul pentru simetria zâmbetului).
  • La o săptămână după intervenție s-a realizat o lucrarea provizorie, pe care pacienta noastră a folosit-o timp de 3 luni.
  • Lucrarea finală - metalo-ceramică.

Aveam o lucrare protetică la dinții din față din 2004 realizată de către domnul Dr. Zaharia. A rezistat 17 ani. În ultimii ani gingia s-a retras iar unul dintre dinți s-a și ciobit. La un control domnul doctor mi-a explicat ce se întâmplă în timp dacă nu rezolvăm problemele.

Așa că am re-început tratamentele alături de echipa Smile Vision. Începând cu înlocuirea coroanelor dentare la dinții din față până la intervențiile de implant dentar pentru măselele lipsă. Acum mereu sunt întrebat dacă sunt dinții mei naturali.

Însă cea mai mare surpriză a fost din partea fetiței mele, nu mă așteptam să fie atât de curioasă și interesată de vizitele mele la dentist. Am putut să văd că cea mai puternică și benefică educație ce o putem oferi copiilor noștrii este prin propriul exemplu.

Mulțumesc Echipa Smile Vision!

Particularitatea cazului

Coroanele vechi erau uzate iar gingia era retrasă.

Pacientul suferă de Bruxism. Un dinte lateral era mai închis la culoare iar acest lucru necesita să fie “mascat” estetic pentru o potrivire cu noua lucrare protetică.

Noile lucrări protetice necesitau să aibă o formă potrivite fizionomiei pacientului, care să se adapteze și cu retracția gingivală prezentă, astfel încât să nu apară spații între dinți și să nu pară că sunt "dinți falși".

Pacientul nostru este o persoană veselă, zâmbitoare iar acest lucru trebuia "respectat" printr-o reconstituire a dinților cât mai naturală!

Abordare

Etapele

Prin schimbarea coroanelor vechi am schimbat și forma lor ca să compensăm uzura dentară și retracția gingivală.

În această situație se fac de obicei două rânduri de dinți provizorii:

  • s-au realizat coroane provizorii în cabinet (aceste provizorii au forma asemănătoare cu forma coroanelor vechi ) și s-a tratat un dinte cu ajutorul unei reconstituiri coronare datorită infiltrațiilor pe sub coroana veche.
  • la o zi după, s-a înlocuit lucrarea provizorie făcută în cabinet cu cea realizată de către tehnician care simula forma lucrării finale (în felul acesta am putut urmări dacă este ce ne dorim estetic și dacă sunt probleme de adaptare la noua formă — mâncat, vorbit, zâmbit).

Noua formă a coroanelor s-a potrivit perfect și am trecut la scanarea finală și executarea coroanelor din Zirconiu (un material foarte rezistent din punct de vedere mecanic - o lucrare integral ceramică nu ar fi rezistat datorită faptului că pacientul nostru suferă de bruxism)
