Postec posts for aesthetic restorations

Postec Posts have recently gained a lot of popularity among other methods used for root canal treatment and for aesthetic restorations. It is the most preferred method these days, especially considering many disadvantages of the other methods in practice.

The metal posts and the Ceramic posts when compared to Postec posts are not very safe. Metal posts and the Ceramic posts are comparatively harder and rigid in their structure. The natural tooth structure is delicate and flexible and the Ceramic posts and Metal posts in long run can harm the natural tooth structure and research has shown that it can also result in root fracture. The Postec posts from Ivoclair are elastic in nature and come close to dentin in characteristics. This elastic nature of Postec posts offers comfort and support to the root structure and hence minimizes the risk of hurting the root and helps prevent the severe damage conditions like root fracture.

Let’s look at some more advantages of Postec posts:

* Postec Posts is relatively very translucent. The material that is used in creating Postec posts includes glass fiber and also specially created composite matrix that gives it an overall very translucent look, thus highly preferred for aesthetic restoration procedures.

* It has an excellent radiopacity and comes close to metal posts with radiopacity of approximately 330% (for size 1) and about 510% (for size 2) respectively. This also implies that Postec posts will be distinctly visible on radiographs, despite the fact that they are not covered with a radiopaque luting material.

* The translucent quality of Postec posts also facilitates the use of both a dual-curing and self-curing composite for cementing.

* The Adhesive cementation process can be achieved in fewer numbers of steps if it is used in combination with high quality luting and build-up composites like Multilink and MultiCore. The clear application protocol facilitated by Postec posts also helps to produce effective and reproducible results.

* When compared to the traditional methods employed for aesthetic restorations and cemented posts in the root canal process, the Postec posts offer higher retention capacity. The posts cemented with adhesive can be retained for much longer time; one can safely say that the retention capacity is almost three to four times more than the conventionally cemented posts.

* Since the Postec posts are made up of glass fiber they are highly elastic in nature and hence the restorations that are attempted are gentle, easier and safer when compared to the Metal and Ceramic posts

Cosmetic fillings

Cosmetic fillings have been around for a number of years now and are a widely accepted part of dentistry. They are used primarily for repairs to teeth with cavities. The procedure involves the dentist cleaning the cavity and filling it with a particular filling. The material used in fillings has changed over the years from silver and gold colored fillings to the aesthetically pleasing porcelain filling. With cosmetic fillings the appearance of the teeth after a filling is usually similar in color to the rest of the teeth around it, so they match the tooth’s enamel. That is what these kinds of fillings bring to dentistry.

Cosmetic fillings are usually of three types,


Porcelain or ceramic filling are made of some mixture of ceramic, glass powder, and porcelain. These kinds of filling as often used as crowns, inlays and onlays, and also veneers. They are also much more resistant to staining that any other type of filling and are easily molded to match your teeth’s color. They are much more long-lasting than other types of filling but are also prone to fracture when stressed. Porcelain fillings are generally much more costly than other forms of fillings.

Composite fillings

This kind of filling is a combination of resins and other small particles that are mixed in a manner so as to capture the teeth’s natural color. This type of filling is not very as long-lasting as Porcelain, it is however much less costly and just as aesthetically pleasing. They are however not ideal for large cavities.


Similar to composite fillings in the way they are made, Ionomers are usually used to do fillings that are close to the gumline.

It is important that to note that the type of cosmetic filling to be used on any patient will be determined by factors such as dental and general health, the types of materials used in a particular filling, and the amount of chewing that will be experienced. You are therefore advised to consult with your dentist in determining which of the different Cosmetic fillings is the best choice for you.

Cosmetic Dentistry - Da Vinci Veneers™

Da Vinci Veneers™ are the industry leader and offer veneers that are able to mask stains and improve your smile. They are highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea and even cigarette smoking. The veneers themselves are wafer thin ceramic material that are bonded to your teeth to form a sort of protective layer that will not only protect your teeth but drastically improve the way you look.

How does it work?
The entire process is usually done in three steps; diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation and bonding.

Diagnosis and treatment planning is where you decide how you want your smile to be when the veneers are fitted. It is a consultation period that allows you to discuss with your dentist what you want done and where you can find out what can be done and also what is possible and affordable.

Preparation is your first practical appointment where you will have your teeth very slightly “buffed” in order to make room for the Da Vinci Veneers™. Usually it’s only a small amount of the tooth that is removed, around half a millimeter and it can require a local anesthetic. Also at this appointment you will have a mold taken of your teeth in order for the veneers to be properly fitted. Sometimes you can be fitted with a “temporary smile” while you wait for your veneers to be made. This appointment usually takes a few hours.

Bonding of your Da Vinci Veneers™ takes around the same time as the preparation appointment (one or two hours) and this is where your dentist will fit your veneers. They will apply your Da Vinci Veneers™ by cleaning your teeth with special dental cleansers to achieve a permanent bond. Then special cements are placed between the veneer and tooth and you’re done.

Da Vinci Veneers™ are a popular way to improve your smile and the Da Vinci Group has been perfecting their work for over two decades so you can be sure they know what they are doing. They are frequently talked about at the Tv show Extreme MakeOver so they must be really good.
