Located in the centre of Zagreb, our facility meets the standards of all and even the most demanding patients because the work ethic and work attitude of the Dental Esthetic Center specialists are at the highest level. The perfect combination of an excellent location in the very beating heart of the city, superbly designed space with state-of-the-art equipment and human touch at every step of the way is what gives our patients utmost accessibility, comfort and, above all, confidence.
Aesthetics is the prime principle of Dental Esthetic Center and it is what guides us in any of the dentist procedures that we perform. It permeates all the other branches of dentistry, creating a unique and organic bond. Aesthetic dentistry is the cornerstone of successful treatment that brings out the beauty of one’s smile as well as our patients’ health and satisfaction.
Consequently, we must take great care to perform only those dental procedures that are in harmony with aesthetics and the proper working order of the masticatory system. By doing so, we also support a natural and pleasing appearance.
We work with patients in four offices, exclusively in advance agreed terms, without waiting. You can order your treatment by telephone or by appointment at the polyclinic. As diagnostics and therapy are performed in one place, you do not have to waste time on departing from other healthcare facilities.
Doctors are very accessible and have enough time for you. Our doctors can be asked everything you care about your health. You will receive relevant answers to all such questions as we believe that communication is an inescapable and extremely important part of the therapy.
We keep detailed documentation not only about the procedure but also the preparations and materials used in the therapy. For the safety of our patients, we use exclusively materials and methods clinically and scientifically proven by neutral working groups in Europe and the world. We do not rely on statements and advertising campaign industry.
We emphasize that everybody, even the smallest treatment, is performed under local anesthesia, so completely painless.
Our institution is located in the historical and business center of Zagreb, on the old church estate. Such a position and blend in the surroundings combine modern and historic and the property is completely isolated from the city crowd. There is a large, beautifully landscaped park, which is used by patients for rest and walking, and is a rare oasis of peace in the very center of the city.
Nearby is also the popular business center named “Kaptol Center”, where one can find representatives of famous companies, Australian embassies, shops, several top restaurants and many other cultural and entertainment facilities. Within Kaptol Center, a large public garage is available, which is of utmost importance because our patients have no problem with parking at any part of day or night.
At Dental Esthetic Center, aesthetic dentistry is the basic doctrine and guide through all dental procedures.It permeates with all the other branches of dentistry and makes them an inextricable bond.Aesthetic dentistry is the basis of a successful therapy of the beautiful smile, health and satisfaction of our patients.
The beauty of your smile is what they will remember you for!
We all understand very deeply how important it is to have a lovely smile. A great smile and laugh are important for our happiness and everyday communication. However, are you aware that most recent studies suggest that an unappealing smile can be a serious impediment in your personal development and career? More than at any time in the past, our society is focused on eating and living healthy and being as attractive as possible..
When we say aesthetic dentistry, what we really mean is the beauty of your smile. Aesthetics implies beauty and harmonious shapes, with nature at its core. All our beauty is nature’s gift. We can only appreciate it and make ever so subtle corrections to suit our own views.
Functionality and beauty are joined at hip. What we find pleasing to look at is also functional. It can also go the other way: what serves its purpose the way nature intended, it is also a sight to behold. The human body is an embodiment of these two intertwined principles. We have known this for a long time. It was no less than legendary thinker Leonardo Da Vinci who understood these rules of life. All that contemporary science can do is corroborate that the ancient wise-man was right and that aesthetics and function go hand in hand indeed.
Experts of Dental Estehtic Centre know this very well. It is what we have in mind all the time.
Aesthetic Dentistry is said to consist of two major areas of interest, white and pink:
White estethic – a branch of dentistry dealing with the aesthetics of the teeth.
Contemporary dentistry and technology have come a long way. Today, we are able to reconstruct or build completely new teeth that are absolutely naturally aesthetic and functional.
When doing so, all the substances that we use have the same physical characteristics and identical chemical composition as natural dental tissue.
To this end, we rely on knowledge and techniques of restorative dentistry, dental prosthetics, implantology, oral surgery and orthodontics.
Pink estethic is a branch of dentistry focused on gums (gingiva) and the relationship between the teeth, gum and lips.
The gum colour must be natural pink, its texture akin to the orange peel and it must not bleed when touched. This is also the image of healthy gingiva. Beautiful, healthy gums form a regular and symmetrical crescent shape, and are free of crevices, cracks or enlargements.
Gums that are swollen, red, blueish or purple, as well as gums of irregular shape or gums that bleed under pressure, lack natural appeal. These are the most common symptoms of inflammation of the gum (gingivitis) and paradontosis, which is one of the most common diseases around the globe and which must be treated immediately!!
Periodontology – a very well-developed and powerful branch of dentistry that deals with gum issues and teeth support structures.
Thanks to its astonishing development, today we can use its protocols to remove any defect and achieve harmony between the gums and lips, which is the ultimate goal of pink aesthetics.
Dental Esthetic Center applies the most advanced contemporary protocols in implantology and prosthodontic rehabilitation. We take special pride in the fact that this filed is in focus of specialization and research of many members of our multidisciplinary implantology team.
The quality of your life improves fundamentally once when you have teeth again, the ones you feel and that function as your natural teeth, rather than a removable dental prosthesis.
The implantation procedure is completely painless because it is done under local anaesthesia.
There are still disputes and different opinions on the potential risks and imperfection of dental implants.
We strongly disagree with these impressions and we want to highlight the scientifically and expertly proven fact and above all the “good news” that, compared to any other method of replacing lost teeth, dental implants still have the best prognosis in treating these conditions.
The durability of dental implants is almost equal to the durability of our natural teeth because implants behave very much like natural teeth. This makes the dental implant placement an absolutely justified process in increasing the quality of life.
Dental implant have a lifetime warranty provided by implant manafacturer.
Scientific and professional studies show that over 95% of dental implants last for more than ten years, many even longer than that. We can confirm this fact, based on our long and rich experience in Dental Esthetic Center.
A number of our patients still have their implants, for as long as even 20 years after application.
Detailed and accurate diagnostics, correct planning of the number and the placement of implants, and their proper pressure in an individual jaw are all important prerequisites for such longevity of dental implants.
Maintaining your oral health along with proper oral cavity hygiene and regular dentist check-ups with the professional cleaning of plaque and calculus, is equally important for dental implant longevity as well as the general health of your organism.
Smoking is a factor which significantly limits the durability of dental implants.
Limitations to application of dental implants Uncontrolled diabetes is one of the most serious systemic illnesses
One of relative limitations is a shortfall of bone tissue, or its unfavourable structure, because long-term toothlessness, leads to degradation and bone loss.
Also, large, developed maxillary sinuses (a hollow space, filled with air in the bones around the nose, on the upper jaw) and the proximity of the mandibular nerve in the lower jaw can also create certain problems during dental implanting.
In such cases, the current common procedure is the augmentation of the jaw bone, auto-transplantation of the bone on the jaws, and sinus lifting (lifting the bottom of the maxillary sinus).
These are techniques and interventions on jaw bones or maxillary sinus, uniquely developed for restoring and regenerating the lost bone. This way, we restore enough bone, in height and width, to fit the implant.
In some cases, we perform this as a special procedure before dental implant placement, sometimes concurrent with it, depending on the type and severity of the case..
Complications following the implant placement
Most common causes of complications after implant placement are inadequate dental hygiene, smoking and missing dental check-ups after implant placements. These complications are most commonly the inflammatory processes of implant and surrounding tissue infection (peri-implantitis). Periimplantitis is treatable, but in some cases it is not possible. Then the infected implant needs to be removed and implanted again after recovery.
Improper pressure of the implant and inadequate function of the chewing system can also lead to complications implant loss. Implant rejection happens very rarely and it is most commonly caused by general poor condition of patient’s health.
Each and every implantation procedure is individual and requires careful planning and analysis carried out prior to the procedure itself.
A detailed medical history of the patient is taken, in Dental Estethic Center, prior to completing and placing dental implants, as well as conducting any other dental procedure. The patient is also acquainted with the possibilities of this type of treatment and possible risks. With fully informed patient’s consent, we proceed to further diagnostics and treatment.
A detailed diagnostics and functional analysis of the patient’s chewing system are then performed. Also, the patient’s general health condition is checked.
Along with the mandatory orthopan (ortopanthomogram – a complete jaw and teeth X-ray) and creation of the jaw model, we also perform other most advanced contemporary diagnostic procedures, such as: CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography i.e. three-dimensional CT), Bone Density Analysis, Analysis of Diagnostic Models in Articulator, Force Application Calculation, and Condilography (diagnostics of the chewing joint, position and movements of the jaw and the chewing musculature activity).
Based on the performed diagnostic and functional analysis, we create an individual therapy plan for each patient in which we determine the sufficient number and the correct position of the implant in each jaw, which is the basis for the longevity of the implant. Then we proceed to the treatment.
No compromises in the number and position of implants should be made in relation to the diagnostics and functional analysis results. Otherwise, problems arise in terms of durability shortening or premature implant loss in most cases.
Prosthetic Dentistry is the branch of dental medicine focused on dental replacements/restorations, employing techniques and prosthetic elements such as crowns, bridges, dental veneers, dental prostheses and inlay/onlay fillings..
High-value Dental Prosthetics
In Dental Esthetic Center we apply only high-value dental prosthetics. Our experts are specially educated and trained at prestigious European dental centres.
High-value prosthetics imply maximum precision in tooth preparation with circular step, maximum precision in creation of dental replacements in the laboratory, using state-of-the-art technology, maximum precision of contact between upper and lower jaw teeth, compliance with aesthetic and functional rules and individual approach to treating each patient.
