Your new mouth guard

A mouth guard provides protection to the teeth and masticatory system (jaw joints and muscles) and is, usually, worn while you are asleep. In severe cases, your dentist will provide two mouth guards, one for the upper jaw and one for the lower jaw.

A mouth guard has several positive effects:

  • Reduces teeth wear and tear: Instead of grinding away teeth you grind the mouth guard.

  • Relieves tension in the jaw joints. Many people suffer from pain in the jaw joints. Sometimes the jaw will lock or produce a loud annoying sound when being used. The mouth guard relieves tension built up in the jaw.

  • Stabilises the bite (occlusion). The design of a mouth guard provides maximum protection to the individual teeth. As it stabilises the bite, it helps the muscles and joints to relax more. If the overload on the teeth is extreme we sometimes see teeth being moved out of their position. A mouth guard will, in most cases, prevent this movement.

 

Things to consider

A mouth guard is worn during sleep. In some cases, it is recommended during the day as well. A patient may use the guard for longer than the recommended duration.

The length of the treatment period varies. If the main objective of the treatment is to get rid of pain, we often see that 3-4 months will suffice. When the objective is to prevent wear and tear of teeth, we recommend longer usage.

The mouth guard is custom-made to suit your bite. It may ache when you begin using it. This will wear off after a few days. The effect of the mouth guard will kick in once it feels comfortable in your mouth. If you feel tension and pain after the first couple of weeks it is important to contact your dentist.

If you stop using the mouth guard for a while, you can experience problems when you try to fit it again. This is because your teeth could have moved slightly over time. In this case you must contact your dentist.

When you remove the mouth guard in the morning your bite will feel peculiar. This is because the jaw muscles have been relaxing all night. The bite will adjust itself after a short while. Rarely do we need to make a bite adjustment.

Initially when using a mouth guard you may experience increased saliva production. It usually returns to normal levels in a few days.

While using a mouth guard it is very important to have good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth before inserting the guard. Floss your teeth daily. The actual mouth guard needs to be cleaned twice daily. When not in use store it in freshwater. When travelling keep it in a plastic bag with some wet wipes.

Always bring the mouth guard to any dentist appointment.

If you have any problems or queries please contact us.

Veneers

Teeth can become discoloured for different reasons. This means that bleaching is not always the best solution. Some teeth cannot be bleached. Old fillings have visible borders that become more pronounced when bleached, making it unsightly. To avoid these problems, your dentist might recommend using a crown made from ceramic. This is particularly helpful if most of the tooth is either filled or damaged, where bleaching would be unsuitable. However, if the tooth is healthy, crowns are not recommended, as much of the healthy tooth would have to be destroyed to make way for the crown.

Veneers
A modern alternative is a veneer. A veneer is a very thin shell made of porcelain and customised to fit individual patients’ teeth. It will be glued to the outer surface of the tooth, forming a strong bond. The appearance is natural because the veneer mimics the layers of enamel.

 
This patient was unhappy with the colour of her teeth and the old fillings (yellow). 

First, all her teeth were bleached. Then, veneers were placed on the front four teeth. Veneers allow you to alter the shape of the teeth. So this patient requested an increase in length of her front teeth.

A natural look
Enamel is a relatively thin and transparent layer on the surface of the tooth. Under the enamel is the dentine, which is darker and coloured. The veneer is glued to the enamel and masks the darker underlying dentine. The porcelain used for veneers is very similar to enamel, making the appearance natural – almost like a new layer of enamel.

 
A tooth gets its natural colour from reflections of light through the different layers of the tooth. In order to create a natural appearance, the dentist will try to mimic the natural construction of the tooth. Veneers are highly precise, very thin shells of porcelain. They are customised to fit each individual patient and tooth. The veneer is glued to the outer surface. It mimics the natural appearance of the tooth, almost like a new layer of enamel.


This patient’s front tooth was broken in an accident and repaired with composite (above). Over time, it  turned slightly yellow. This was fixed using a porcelain veneer (below).

It is not necessary to remove any tooth substance if you choose to increase the size of a tooth with the veneer treatment. However, your dentist might need to remove a thin layer of enamel – usually 0.5mm – to accommodate the veneer. Next, your dentist will take an impression of your tooth and create a cast. Our dental laboratory will then make your customised veneer and your dentist will schedule a fitting. If the fit and appearance are to your liking, the veneer will be “cemented” (glued) in place, and you can enjoy your new smile.


This patient had veneers made for six front teeth.

At Snö, our dental technician works like an artist to craft veneers in-house. During an inlay, onlay or crown procedure, we can usually fabricate it on the same day or the next. To make aesthetic veneers usually takes a few more days due to the customisations. 

Thanks to our advanced digital scanners, we also save you from the discomfort of taking tooth impressions. A two-minute scan is all we need to get all the information of your teeth in full detail and the highest resolution. The crown is cemented to the tooth – aesthetic, durable and strong.

The quality and lifespan of the veneer has a direct relation with the technique and time spent on the treatment and oral hygiene going forward.

A treatment can look and feel good, but can still have quality concerns. At Snö, we always document everything during treatment in order to insure our high quality standard. This applies to veneers too. The veneer treatment also carries a two-year warranty. If you follow our protection plan you can get up to five years of warranty.

Amalgam problems

Continuous wear
Tooth wear is based on the environment. In the same way that cars used for races require more repair than those used for display purposes, tooth wear depends on what we expose our teeth to. For instance, if you grind your teeth during night (bruxism), they will wear over time without you being aware of it.

An intact tooth is the best
The most durable tooth is one without any fillings. Most people have amalgam fillings which function fine. However, with age, the amalgam filling changes its form so it does not fit the tooth anymore.


A cavity alongside the fractured amalgam filling

 

Amalgam cannot bind itself to the tooth. A dentist will usually make the cavity wider at the bottom than at the top so that when the amalgam sets, it swells and becomes “trapped” in the cavity. Amalgam is good at resisting bite forces, but over time small cracks in the tooth are created, increasing the risk of fracture. The bigger the filling, the greater the risk.


A side view of a tooth with caries (left), detected during a routine dental examination. The tooth (right) with the caries and bacteria removed. If the tooth were to be filled with amalgam at this stage, the amalgam would simply fall out.

 


The dentist is, therefore, forced to remove healthy tooth substance in order to make the cavity bigger at the bottom.

 


A cavity filled with amalgam (left). Over time the amalgam swells up (right), creating a risk of fracture to the tooth.

 


A tooth with a large old amalgam filling. A crack is visible and the wall of the tooth will soon fall off (left). Another example (right) where the wall has broken off. A crown or dental onlay will greatly reduce the risk of fracture. Tooth fractures also quite often lead to root canal treatment.

 

The first time a cavity is filled with amalgam, it usually lasts a long time – 20 years is not uncommon. When an old filling needs to be redone, the prognosis is not always as good. Even the unfilled parts of the tooth are often damaged, forcing the dentist to remove more of the tooth. The longevity is now greatly reduced. A crown or dental inlay/onlay will improve the prognosis of the tooth.

Modern techniques make it possible to restore teeth back to how they originally looked, putting a smile on the patient’s face again.

In the early stage of a cavity, composites are much better, and more aesthetic than amalgams. At Snö we do not provide amalgams as an alternative.

Tooth sensitivity

Your tooth is complex
A tooth consists of a crown and a root. The root is attached to the surrounding bone by thin threads. The gum surrounds the lower part of the crown, covers the bone and functions as a protective barrier against bacteria in the mouth.

Tooth sensitivity can be caused by many things like, caries, overload, inflammation, infections. A common cause is that the gum recedes and exposes the root surface. Inside the root is the pulp tissue and it consists of nerves and blood vessels. The outer surface of the crown is protected by enamel, but there is no enamel protecting the root surface.


With age the gum recedes, but behaviour like teeth clenching or periodontitis and even the wrong cleaning technique can make it worse.

Sensitivity is annoying but mostly harmful
If we magnify (below) the exposed root surface we can see it consists of small canals. The canals are narrow and filled with liquid. If the root is exposed to heat, cold, sweet, dryness, the liquid will move. This causes the nerve to react which manifests as a sharp, icy sensation. It can be painful, but is not harmful. In some rare cases, a root canal might be necessary to treat the pain.


The root surface consists of millions of microscopic canals. The canals are filled with liquid that stimulates the nerve when there is a change on the surface (heat or cold). Caries builds easier on the softer root surface than the enamel covered crown.

Bone recession
When the root surface is exposed it is because the bone underneath has receded. The bone can recede for various reasons. The most common ones are:

  • Load: Overload, caused by teeth grinding at night may result in bone recession.
  • Oral hygiene: If cleaning – especially in the area between the teeth – is compromised, the gums respond with inflammation, swelling and/or bleeding . This may cause the bone to recede. In some cases, the bacteria build-up may lead further bone loss and eventually tooth mobility and tooth loss (periodontitis). This can be prevented by practising proper oral hygiene.
  • Old fillings and crowns: Fillings and crowns with bad fits can cause bacteria to accumulate and initiate the reaction described above (oral hygiene).

What to do about tooth sensitivity
In some cases, the icy sensation can be a sign of possible tooth damage. You dentist will look for signs of damage, but if the condition worsens, your dentist might ask you to visit the clinic again and prescribe a topical fluoride treatment. Certain toothpastes, like Sensodyne and Zendium, might be effective at closing the canals on the root surfaces so that the nerve is not stimulated. In most cases the pain from tooth sensitivity gradually disappears. If it persists, please contact your dentist.

If the symptoms are not severe and the dentist does not find a reason, it is not harmful to wait. Occasionally the reason surfaces later, but in most cases it is just a temporary sensitivity that gradually diminishes. However, if it worsens, do contact the dentist.

A root canal treatment will remove the icy pain, but the modern approach to dentistry is to keep the teeth alive as long as possible.

Tooth colour

Not all teeth are white
The colour of your teeth varies. Not everyone has white teeth. In fact, many people have shades of yellow.


The enamel protects the tooth. Underneath is the darker dentine. The reddish core consists of pulp tissue, nerves and blood vessels.

Enamel is lighter
The enamel is usually the whitest part of the tooth. It is actually a transparent substance. The dentine below it is more yellow and not as transparent as enamel. As a result, the colour of the dentine reflects through the enamel, giving the tooth a yellowish tinge. The more yellow the dentine, the more colour the tooth has, and vice-versa. This is the natural appearance of the tooth.

  
When light reaches a tooth, it is reflected through the transparent enamel. The underlying dentine gives the tooth its colour. If the dentine is lighter the tooth will appear lighter and whiter.

Can you paint the teeth white?
Painting a layer of white on a tooth would make it appear unnatural due to the loss of the enamel’s natural transparency.

The colour of our teeth changes over time. Even though the enamel is hard, there are microscopic cracks that allow substances to enter the tooth. Sometimes, the gum recedes and exposes the root surface that consists of dentine and cement. This makes the tooth appear more yellow, especially in the part closer to the gum line.


The natural colour of a tooth is created by a reflection of light travelling through the transparent enamel. The colour of the tooth is a combination of its different layers, including the dentine. If a dentist painted one tooth white it would appear white, but completely unnatural.


At the gum line there is no enamel. If the gum recedes, the more yellow dentine becomes visible.

 
Crowns made of an opaque inner core (as above to the left with gold below the ceramic material) often get a dark halo around the border towards the gum (arrows). This I because the light that should pass through the tooth and reflect doesn’t get through and hence makes the area appear darker. To the right the metal ceramic crown has been changed to a full ceramic crown with a more translucent core that reflect the light more natural (arrows). 

Mimicking a natural look
A repair or replacement of a damaged tooth must mimic the layers of enamel and dentine. Certain materials like ceramics are better at mimicking a natural tooth.

Alternatives
Today, bleaching procedures help rectify yellow and discoloured teeth. Your dentist will be able to guide you on what is possible and best for your dental health.

Wisdom teeth

Archaeological findings have proven that our ancestors used to have bigger and more powerful jaws. With time, these gradually became smaller, similar to our jaws presently, appears we are developing smaller jaws, most likely due to the shift in our way of living and eating. While we now have smaller jaws and less space for teeth to grow, the size and number of teeth forming have not changed. Wisdom teeth are the last to erupt and often will not have the space needed.

  
Side view: Occasionally, wisdom teeth are completely buried in the bone. In that case it is sufficient to observe the situation on a regular basis (left). Upper wisdom tooth (right) has fully erupted while the lower one hasn’t. Because there is no opposing tooth, we can expect the top tooth to over erupt. This can lead to other problems.

 
Close up of partly erupted wisdom tooth in lower jaw.

This can give the patient intermittent pain, often without additional symptoms. However, it is difficult to maintain good oral health in the region. Even if the patient doesn’t experience pain, the bacteria has easy access to the crown of the tooth. Lodged food debris can lead to inflamed and swollen gums, in the area. Antibiotics or painkillers can provide relief to acute symptoms, but cannot resolve the underlying cause.

  
X-rays are vital in detecting problems with wisdom teeth. In this case the patient waited too long to get a check up and there is a caries attack on the neighbouring tooth.

At Snö we have the latest low radiation 3D x-ray (cone beam) to identify and examine impacted teeth. With today’s dental techniques and anaesthetic drugs available, it is possible to remove wisdom teeth in a painless manner. Left in for too long there is an increased risk of caries and bone loss.

Things to consider
The area around the wisdom tooth is often difficult to keep clean. This can lead to gum problems caused by the increased amount of plaque and bacteria build-up. Pockets will develop and the risk of infections around the wisdom tooth increases. If bone loss occurs, it is important to have the tooth extracted.

The risk is minimal if the tooth is completely buried in the bone. It only requires regular observation using x-rays. Occasionally, a cyst could develop around the buried tooth. If the cyst grows too big, thus affecting the bone negatively, it must be removed.

Generally speaking, it is a good idea to remove wisdom teeth early, especially those that potentially can lead to problems later on. If a dentist is in doubt whether to extract or not it is imperative to keep it under close observation.

 
Crowding of the front lower teeth is common with age (left). Many people (and dentists) believe this is caused by wisdom teeth that push the other teeth forward. This is untrue, and we have scientific evidence that removing wisom teeth in such circumstances is unnecessary. A removable orthodontic appliance (Inman Aligner) placed by Dr Gun, has helped this patient regain a corrected, natural smile (right).

The Snö dental team has comprehensive knowledge dealing with problematic wisdom teeth and is adept at fixing any complication related to them. Feel free to contact your dentist if you have any additional questions.

Teeth clenching

Bruxism (BRUK-siz-um) is a condition that involves grinding and forcing teeth together during the day or night. It affects many people, and while some people are aware of the damaging effects, many remain in the dark about the kind of damage this may cause to teeth.  

Excessive grinding can lead to the following unpleasant side effects:

  • Pain in the back, spine, head, ears and muscles
  • Soreness in the teeth and jaw joints
  • Decreased ability to open or close the mouth and/or a locked jaw
  • Gum retraction leading to an exposed root surface of the teeth
  • Increased wear and sensitivity of the dentition hence greater risk for broken fillings, which could eventually lead to bone loss around the teeth

While signs of overload from bruxism are often significant and obvious, most symptoms cannot be seen by patients. Our dentists are trained to spot the early signs of bruxism and can support their findings by performing some simple muscle and ligament tests.

It is unclear why people grind their teeth. The masticatory system, including the mouth and jaws, is a complicated system that is influenced by several external and internal factors. Some trigger factors could be a poorly adjusted bite, loss of teeth leading to an imperfect bite, or damaged jaw joints. The CNS (Central Nervous System) that coordinates the masticatory system could be affected by stress or other diseases in the body, which could also be a trigger for bruxism.

Dental wear can collapse your entire bite, often without you noticing before its gone to far.
 
Types of Bruxism
There are two main types of bruxism: One that occurs during the day while the patient is awake, also known as awake bruxism; and one that occurs while one is asleep and unaware, or sleep bruxism. In some cases, bruxism persists throughout the day.
 
Abnormal Teeth Positions
The abrasive surfaces of the teeth are often in positions unrecognisable to the patient. This is likely to be a sign of grinding, especially at night, when patients are more likely to be unaware of the problem.


This patient (23 years old) thinks this is the normal relation between the upper and lower jaw.

 
 
When the dentist slowly help the patient to guide the lower jaw forward it feels unfamiliar to the patient.
 

When moving the lower jaw the dentist finds 6 “natural” slides where the upper and lower jaw “fits” to each other. This is a very common finding although the patients is not aware of the excessive wear on the teeth. We call this kind of wear attrition. Another kind of common problem that can worsen the wear is called Erosion and usually comes from digesting carbonated beverages, citrus fruits, tart candy, or stomach acid (bulimia; gastric reflux). The case on the top is such a case with chemical wear.
 

 
Another patient with exposed cervical part of a tooth (tooth neck). The gum has receded due to overload. The root surface is darker/yellow and consists of dentine but no protecting enamel.

Long term damage to teeth
Every tooth consists of a tough layer of enamel on the outside. Underneath the enamel, there is a softer layer of dentine. When teeth grind against each other the enamel wears off, eventually leaving the dentine exposed. This speeds up damage to teeth as the softer dentine wears out much quicker than enamel. Since the enamel erosion is gradual, patients often do not register any problems until the teeth get much worse.

With time, the bite height decreases due to the gradual shortening of the teeth. This makes re-establishing a normal bite more challenging for dentists. This is why it is important to have regular check-ups to ensure good dental health.

Subsequent tension in the facial region can lead to other painful conditions such as chronic headaches and aches in the neck and shoulders. Some also believe it can lead to migraines.


Front teeth side aspect. The lower front teeth slide on the backside of the upper front teeth. Over time the enamel is abraded and eventually missing, exposing the softer underlying dentine. The picture to the right shows an advanced stage with reduced height of the teeth causing possible problems for the TMJ (the jaw joints), muscles and ligaments.


This patient (34 years old) has never had any symptoms, but has recently become aware of shorter front teeth. The cause is probably a combination of Bruxism (grinding) and Erosion (chemical wear) On the picture to the right is the same patient after treatment with bonded minimal invasive ceramics. It would have been much cheaper to treat and protect the teeth 10 years ago when it probably started.

The etiology is often unknown
We don’t know for sure why people grind their teeth. The face, masticatory system and the mouth is a complicated system which is affected by several factors. Trigger factors could be a poorly adjusted bite, loss of teeth leading to disharmony in the occlusion or damaged jaw joints. The CNS (Central Nervous System) which coordinates the masticatory system could be affected by stress or other diseases in the body.

Treatment
There is no cure for bruxism and treatments are mostly preventive in nature. Often, a night guard is prescribed to protect a patient’s teeth from further wear. Along with a night guard, the dentist will work with the patient to resolve the triggering factors and prevent further damage.


A night guard has two functions. It protects the teeth from wear and it usually makes you grind less or not at all. Many patients sleep much better and cant be without it when sleeping. Others only use it when they get symptoms from the muscles, ligament and jaw joints (TMJ problem).

Calculus

One of the causes of bad breath is the prolonged build-up of tartar. It can also lead to inflammation of the gums, which can make teeth loose (called periodontitis). Some people are more susceptible to tartar than others. Your dentist will guide you regarding this matter and determine how often you will need to get your teeth cleaned.

Tartar usually builds up above the gum line – supragingival. This is much easier to remove and can usually be done over a single visit to your dentist. Some patients might require more than one visit, depending on the amount of tartar found. Tartar can also build up under the gum line – subgingival. Routine x-rays will pick this up and your dentist will recommend an appropriate treatment.

Treatment
Using a probe, your dentist will assess the root surfaces of your teeth for irregularities and how tightly the gum adheres. The most common way to remove tartar a treatment called depuration. It involves scraping off the tartar with a specialised tool.

A newer, often more effective and gentler treatment that we provide at Snö is the Guided Biofilm Therapy (PERIO-FLOW®). It is a powerful, yet controlled, jet of water, air and fine powder that not only polishes all the surfaces of a tooth, removing plaque, discolouration and soft deposits, but also reaches deep into periodontal pockets up to a depth of 5mm. It is far more efficient than the traditional scrape-and-polish treatment at removing the damaging biofilm that develops when dental plaque is colonised by bacteria causing periodontitis and peri-implantitis. Even deeper, sub-gingival air polishing can be carried out using a PERIO-FLOW® extension nozzle. The air flow polishing procedure is completely safe to use with dental implants, veneers, crowns and bridges.

Studies have shown that air polishing is much faster at removing stains and plaque than traditional methods. This means less time in the chair for you and fewer interruptions. Teeth are cleaned in a much less abrasive manner, which results in less damage to your teeth. This can also be complemented with laser treatment. When needed, all this is included in the normal treatment at no extra cost

For more advanced stages of periodontitis there are a variety of treatments available, depending on the severity.

If your teeth are particularly sensitive, your dentist might use a local anaesthetic.

After treatment
Most patients will have sore gums after depuration. The teeth might also become more sensitive to cold for a few days.  This is due to the removal of the calculus and cleaning of the wound from the inflammation.

It is important to follow our instructions for good oral hygiene. This will ensure you have healthy gums after the treatment, especially since healing under the gums often takes months. When the gum is healthy, future cleanings become much less painful. If a patient has deep gum pockets before the treatment, it is likely the sensitivity will carry on for longer. In such cases, your dentist will recommend fluoride treatment to help protect the exposed root surfaces.

In cases where patients have deep gum pockets, the dentist will monitor the condition and suggest appropriate treatments. Remember to brush your teeth thoroughly and floss between the teeth.

During a routine check-up, the dentist or hygienist diagnoses the calculus and possible inflammation and bone loss (from the back of the lower front teeth). The other picture shows the work of removing plaque almost complete (the arrows show where a final PERIO-FLOW®air polishing, as explained above, will finalize the treatment).

 

The signs are the same as with periodontitis

Warning signs

  • Gums bleed easily and may feel tender
  • The tooth feels loose
  • Gums between teeth change appearance
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Swollen gums with pus
  • Occasionally no symptoms

Things to remember

  • No smoking
  • Good oral hygiene – even between the teeth
  • Regular visits to the dentist/hygienist

If you have any questions related to your teeth, gums or health, do not hesitate to ask any member of the dental team at Snö Dental Clinic.

Bleeding gums

Tough environment in your mouth
Your mouth’s environment is varied and tough. It plays host to many microscopic living organisms – namely bacteria. These bacteria can be neutral, helpful or harmful. For instance, out of the oral environment and in the bloodstream, the same bacteria can be very harmful.

The inside of your body is closer than you might think
Our teeth are attached to the surrounding bone via small flexible rubberlike fibres called the periodontal ligament (PDL). The fibres function as shock absorbers and reduce the risk of the bite force damaging the teeth. To protect this ligament, the body has a special barrier that we call the gums.

A front tooth, side aspect. The gums surround the tooth and protect it from bacterial invasions.

The gums are a part of our defense system
The gum surrounding the tooth contains a 1-3mm deep pocket. If you probe into the pocket, you can feel the bone (please don’t try this-at home; it is painful!). In and around this pocket, millions of bacteria gather. To protect the body against the bacteria and bacterial debris bombarding it 24/7, the gum contains many blood vessels, supplying the area with defence cells.

Balance or unbalance
When your gums are fresh, there is a balance between the attacking bacteria and the body’s defence. However, if an unbalance occurs (for instance, if your oral hygiene is compromised) the bacteria could attack and affect the gums, causing damage. Your body will attempt to heal the damaged gums. Defence mechanisms are activated through the blood stream. The body rapidly creates new blood vessels in order to transport more defence cells to the area. These blood vessels are fragile. You will not notice the increased blood supply initially, but flossing could lead to bleeding due to the fragile blood vessels rupturing. When you see blood on the dental floss, you might think you have done something wrong and may stop. However, you should continue flossing as the body needs help removing the bacteria. Occasionally, cleaning may fail and bacteria will enter the blood stream. In a healthy body this is not a problem but if your immune system is compromised, for any reason, the consequences can be severe.

Restorations will be affected
All the filling materials we use are sensitive to liquid. In an inflamed environment, with gums prone to bleeding, it is difficult to create the dryness needed for predictable results.

 
Gums bleeding (left) during flossing is a sign of inflammation, most probably caused by bacterial infection. Healthy gums rarely bleed when flossed (right).

What you can do before you visit your dentist
Our dentists strongly recommend brushing and flossing twice daily. You may experience soreness and slight bleeding for the first couple of days, especially if you have never flossed before. You may miss up to 25 percent of the bacteria if you do not floss. This will affect your breath negatively too. In the beginning, flossing will take some getting used to, but it will quickly become a natural part of your daily routine.


The patient was not aware of the inflammation between the teeth. When the amalgams (top) were removed, the gums showed up inflamed and bleeding (middle). After replacing the old amalgam with ceramic onlays, the gum is healthy again.

A chronic bleeding gum can be one of the most common mouth diseases (periodontitis) that could lead to loss of teeth.

Aesthetic dentistry

There are a million reasons to smile every day of our life. At Snö we want to give you the confidence to smile whenever you have the opportunity. Unfortunately, many people are concerned about the appearance of their teeth, and smile a lot less.  Aesthetic dentistry is here to change that.

For us, aesthetics go much beyond superficial looks. First and foremost, your mouth should feel and be healthy. But beyond this, the Snö team of aesthetic dentists can help with any correction, no matter how small or big. Some adjustments are quite big and require careful planning, while many smaller treatments can be performed quickly, like a routine correction of the colour of your teeth.

Aesthetic services we provide:
Cosmetic consultation
Veneers
Whitening/bleaching
