Eniyident is an Istanbul-based dental spa that specializes in cosmetic dentistry like veneers, teeth whitening and braces. The company has amassed a following of 124,000 on Instagram thanks to its smile transformations.
A recent video shows a patient in the process of receiving zirconia crowns. Zirconia crowns have a multitude of purposes varying from the aesthetic to the functional. Dentists recommend them for broken, weak, severely discolored or misshapen teeth. They are also used in combination with dental bridges to strengthen multiple teeth, according to Healthline.
The patient’s teeth are slightly misaligned and stained yellow. But the dentist carefully attaches each pearlescent veneer to a tooth. The finished look is a smile makeover with whiter, brighter and healthier looking teeth.
Dentists tend to like zirconia crowns because of the material’s many advantages. It’s durable and robust enough to last at least five years and it’s biocompatible, which means it’s less likely to cause inflammation or other immunological responses.
Whether you’re considering a cosmetic dental procedure or not, smiling is good for your health.
Studies show that smiling improves mood, even when forced, and can induce more pleasure than eating chocolate, according to Psychology Today. That’s because it gives your dopamine, endorphins and serotonin a nice little jolt. The release of these neurotransmitters can relax your body, and even lower your heart rate and blood pressure.
