Invisalign® aesthetic orthodontics

To clean the teeth, it's important that teeth are straight. This can be achieved by means of an orthodontic treatment (braces). Nowadays there is the possibility to make virtual brackets virtually. That means you can already see the end result before the treatment is started. Invisalign treatment is clinically proven to be effective. In the hands of an experienced Invisalign Provider it can be used to treat mild to complex teeth straightening issues.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is a fairly new technology from the United States that changes the state of teeth by wearing specially manufactured, transparent pieces (transparent braces).
Photos, X-rays and digital scans, or a dental impression of your teeth are sent and processed in the United States. In consultation, a plan is made that can be viewed in a simulation (imitation of reality) on a computer. The plan contains a clear beginning and end situation. The duration and cost of treatment are clear before the start. After approval of the simulation, the transparent bits are sent for the entire treatment. The bits must be worn 22 hours a day.

Costs Invisalign®

The first appointment discussing everything takes about 15 minutes. Costs: € 22,16
When you want to make such a simulation, the 45-minute intake follows photos and prints. Costs € 78,32.
Any additional X-ray pictures  € 47,33.

More information:

Printing / scans

When the prints / scans have been made, we will send them for a 'clin check'.
You will then receive a video of your teeth of the treatment plan so that you can see how it will look like with the number of aligners.
If you decide not to continue the treatment at that time, there are costs involved. They are € 350.

Invisalign® Comprehensive

Invisalign® Comprehensive is the default procedure. In most cases this package is required to achieve a good end result. Cost: € 2548,98 (UPT code F471A) + monthly rate of € 40.75 (UPT code F517A).

Invisalign® Lite

In small adjustments, Invisalign® Lite may be sufficient. Usually, no more than 10 aligners (bits) are needed to reach the end result. The treatment duration is therefore short. Approximately 10 aligners x 2 weeks that an aligner is worn is 20 weeks. Half a year so about. You fall into Lite if you do not need more than 14 bits. Cost: € 1880,46 (UPT code F471A) + monthly rate of € 40.75 (UPT code F517A).

Invisalign® Express

Invisalign® Express is only possible if only really small changes have to be made. Up to 7 aligners can be used per jaw. Of course it is very advantageous in price and speed. Cost: € 617,40 (UPT code F471A) + monthly rate of € 40.75 (UPT code F517A).

Post treatment

After an orthodontic treatment, there is always a relapse. This is the tendency of the teeth and choose to return to the old position again. If necessary, we rupture the upper and lower extremities. There are also charges for placing a spalk. It is € 180 per jaw. Sometimes it is also necessary to make a piece. Invisalign® vivera retainer is € 229.51 per jaw. Then you get 3 sets.


For compensation from Invisalign® you will need additional insurance.

Deduction medical expenses

Invisalign® is deductible from the tax.

Cerec Methode

CEREC, a modern and digital method for the most beautiful and best restorations within one and the same visit with your dentist!

What is cerec?

CEREC is a CAD-CAM system that allows crowns, bridges (also on implants) and inlays to be made while sitting in the dental chair. CEREC stands for Ceramic Reconstruction. It is working with high-quality ceramic material, it is durable and is available in a range of 'dental colors', which makes the restoration not different from your own teeth.


What happens during your visit?

The old filling is removed and the remaining piece of tooth is cleaned and adjusted in the mold. The dial is scanned in the mouth and a new piece of tooth is developed on the computer using a 3D software program. The design is cut by a grinding machine from dental porcelain and then fitted into the mouth. The color can be adjusted by glazing the porcelain, shining and baking it in an oven. Then the crown is placed in the mouth. You no longer have to "snap" or walk around with emergency crowns. The total crown or inlay treatment takes about 3 hours.

You want beautiful white teeth? Or do you want to get rid of a gap between your teeth? Or do you want to repair a broken tooth? With the help of a so-called facing, the dentist can highly improve the appearance of your teeth.

What is a facing?

A face is a layer of dental filler material of composite or a porcelain shell. The dentist places the filler material on the tooth. This way he can change the shape or color of a tooth. He can also fill gaps between teeth, repair broken corners, make yellow or brown teeth white again and mask lean teeth.

Facings Facings Facings Facings

How long does a face go?

A face turns five to ten years and sometimes longer. Smoke and drink a lot of coffee or tea, work discoloration. A face can wear or damage if you bite a toothbrush or bite your nails. The dentist can always repair or replace a worn or damaged face. This treatment does not damage the tooth itself. What material are facings made of?
A face is made of composite or porcelain. For a composite face, the dentist generally needs to sharpen your tooth. Also, the result is more predictable and the costs are significantly lower than with a porcelain facing. In contrast, a porcelain face is less susceptible to surface attack. The treatment in steps for a composite facing

> Select the color First,
the dentist will choose the right color of your face in consultation with you. The effect of the desired color can be shown by the dentist immediately. He has different colors that he can combine. You can compare it with mixing different types of paint.

> Tearing off the tooth If necessary,
the dentist shaves a very thin layer of the surface of your tooth. This makes him space for the face. If this does not happen, your tooth becomes slightly thicker.

> Paste of the face Before your dentist sticks the composite to your tooth, he treats your tooth with an acid. He also applies an adhesive layer to your tooth. On this layer he confirms the still soft composite.

> Shaping the face
After your dentist has stuck the composite on your tooth, he first fills the filler material globally into the correct shape. The dentist displays the composite with a blue light when the desired shape is reached. With this he makes the composite hard. Finally, he grinds the composite into the desired shape and polished the surface. Then the face is ready. If you do not find the shape or color, your dentist can correct the face immediately after grinding a layer of composite.

Choose the color

During the first treatment, your dentist will determine the right color of the face in consultation with you. He uses a color language for this. Your face is then made in the dental laboratory in this color.

Tearing off the tooth

In the case of a porcelain face, the dentist must always grind away glaze. A porcelain face must be at least half a millimeter thick.

Shaping the face

Your dentist makes a print of your tooth. That print goes to the dental laboratory. There they make your face in the desired shape.

Fasting of the facing

During the second treatment, the dentist turns on the face. Before the dentist sticks the face to your tooth, he treats your tooth with an acid. He also applies an adhesive layer to your tooth. On this layer he sticks the face. If you do not feel the shape or color of the face, a completely new face should be made in the dental laboratory.

What is the treatment for a face facing?

The application of a face goes on in a number of steps. A composite face brings the dentist into one treatment. A porcelain face is made in a dental laboratory. Therefore, you must contact your dentist at least twice.

How does a facing feel?

A facing feels like its your own tooth. Perhaps you should get used to it for the first time. Talking at the beginning may cause problems when your teeth are made longer. If the dentist has changed the shape of your teeth, sounds may even deform. After a few days, that goes without saying.

Can you eat anything with a facing?

With a face you can eat anything. But do not bite on hard things, such as on sewers, your nails or, for example, a pen. Also, tearing off tape for example with your teeth is advisable. Need a face extra maintenance? A face need no extra maintenance. However, as always, you will need to keep your teeth clean. Poet with a soft toothbrush. Regularly use dental floss to clean well between the teeth.

Does a facing need extra maintenance?

A facing needs no extra maintenance. However, as always, you will need to keep your teeth clean. Poet with a soft toothbrush. Regularly use dental floss to clean well between the teeth.

How much a facing cost?

The cost of a face depends among other things on the material that the dentist uses. A composite face is considerably cheaper than a porcelain face. This price difference arises partly from the costs of the dental laboratory. We anticipate what the treatment will cost.

Crowns and bridges

Crowns and bridges are intended as durable replacements for teeth and choose. They approach the original shape and function as much as possible. A crown or bridge treatment is more complicated than normal filling. You will have to come back to your dentist several times.

What is a crown?

A crown is a metal and / or porcelain hood that fits exactly a toothed tooth or a choice. The cap is on the tooth or choose glued. A crown will get the tooth or choose its original shape and function again.

Kronen Kronen

What is a bridge?

A bridge is made to replace one or more missing teeth and / or choose. A bridge is attached to two or more pillars. These are torn teeth or choose either side of the open space of the missing tooth or choose. A bridge consists of two or more crowns that fit on pillars and a bridge piece, also called a dummy. This consists of one or more artificial teeth and / or choosing to come to the place of open space.

Plate or framed prosthesis

If one or more teeth should be replaced.
A plate or frame prosthesis, also known as partial prosthesis, is a replacement of one or more teeth or chooses. A good solution if your lost teeth or do not choose a bridge, crown or implant are replaced. You can take the prosthesis out of your mouth. Bridges, crowns and implants do not. They are stuck in the mouth.

The plate prosthesis

The plate prosthesis is made of a pink, gingham-colored resin. Therein the artificial teeth and choice are anchored. The entire plaque prosthesis rests on the mucosa of the mouth. It may be attached with anchors to remaining teeth or choose.

Plaatprothese Plaatprothese

The framed prosthesis

The frame prosthesis is made of metal. On the metal there is a gingham-colored resin. There are the artificial teeth or choices. The frame prosthesis rests on a part of the remaining teeth or chooses. Depending on the design, the frame prosthesis also rests more or less on the mucosa. The dentist can confirm the frame prosthesis in two ways. Or with metal anchors that clamp around some teeth or choose a type of lock. At one lock one side is attached to a crown, tooth or dial and the other side is attached to the frame prosthesis. You can slide the frame prosthesis in that way. The lock is usually on the inside of the teeth and is not visible from the outside. Anchors are often slightly visible.

Bleaching your teeth

White and radiant teeth. Who does not want that? Beautiful white teeth are popular and the offer to get them is huge. The advertisements promise hail-white teeth, often even within an hour. Tooth whitening using bleaching is sometimes possible, but not always. Unsafe bleaching processes can damage your teeth and mouth. Are you considering a bleaching treatment? Then choose for a safe and responsible way.

Costs are about € 230.

The color of your teeth

The color of teeth is different for everyone. The one has whiter teeth than the other. Some have yellow, others even brown or grey teeth. Nevertheless, teeth and dial do not all have the same color. Sometimes the color of a single tooth diverges or choose from the rest.

tanden bleken tanden bleken tanden bleken tanden bleken

Teeth are made up of dental bone and glaze. The color and thickness of the dental bone determine the color of the tooth or choice. The original color of the dental bone is hereditary determined. The glaze of teeth and teeth is almost transparent. The canines have a thicker tooth bone than the other teeth. Therefore, they are often gelled.

Why are teeth getting darker?

As dyes from the food and stimulant industry in the dental plaque (the white-gel layer with bacteria on teeth and chooses), the teeth look darker. This happens, for example, by drinking coffee, tea and red wine. Smoking is also a cause of discoloration. In addition, your teeth become darker as you grow older. The formation of dental bone always continues. The layer of yellow dental bone becomes thicker. The enamel layer becomes even thinner due to wear. Also, cracks may eventually come in the glaze. As a result, coloring of food and beverages is even easier in the tooth or choice.

White teeth, also for me?

Let your dentist or dental hygiënist first look at your teeth and evaluate them. It must be noted that your teeth are healthy and free of holes and your fillings do not leak. Then the current color of your teeth is evaluated. What is the cause of discoloration? Are there a lot of dark fillings in your mouth? Do you have many crowns and bridges? Are the diseases or medications the cause? Are your teeth clean? What color would suit you well? Bleaching is not always the only or best solution. Your dentist or dental hygienist will assess whether it seems useful to you and whether you will achieve the desired result. Discolourations due to illnesses and medications often require special treatment. Consult your dentist for this.

Bleaching methods

1.Painting inside of 'dead' teeth:
First, the dentist opens the tooth. In the discolored dead tooth, the dentist puts a piece of ink with a bleaching agent. This paper has a bleaching effect for several days. Depending on the result obtained, the dentist repeats the treatment one or more times. Eventually he closes the tooth with a final filling.

2. Bleaching from outside with 'living' teeth:
Home bleaching under the supervision of the dentist or oral hygienist.
Egale, non-serious discoloration can be bleached from the outside. This is done by means of a bleaching spoon. First, your dentist or dental hygienist will print your teeth. The dental technician in the dental laboratory makes a bleach spoon. This is made from a soft plastic, specifically for your teeth. That's important because then the spoon fits well and your gums are well protected from the bleach (peroxide). You will get the bleach and gel with the bleaching effect home. Therefore, this is also called home bleaching. Your dentist will indicate how long you should wear the bleach with the gel for the desired result. Usually you will wear the bleach at night. Depending on the discoloration, you will see results after a few days or weeks. During bleaching, your teeth and gums can be temporarily sensitive. Consult your dentist if this complaint occurs.

From the dentist or dental hygienist you will get the transparent bleach and gel with the bleaching effect to take home. Download here the using instructions.

Bleaching in dental practice

Bleaching in dental practice often occurs with local discoloration. In practice, the dentist uses significantly higher peroxide concentrations than in the 'home bleach' method. Often he uses a bleach or sometimes a laser, which makes the bleaching process faster. The advantage of this technique is the speed at which it goes. The higher costs are  a disadvantage. In addition, this method often gives rise to sensitivity to teeth and gums.

The high concentrations of peroxide affect the mucous membranes (the gums and cheeks). Therefore, the gums and cheeks are well protected by this method. After the gums have been removed, occurrence of leakage may have occurred. This causes white 'burn' spots on the gum, tongue or lips. These will disappear within a few hours. The icing of the glaze is minimal and comparable to the effects of the home bleaching method.

How long does a bleach treatment take?

The bleaching duration depends on the bleaching method. For home bleaching, it usually takes two weeks to reach a desired result.

Can I bleach all teeth?

During a bleaching treatment, fillings, facings (a porcelain or composite shell), crowns and bridges do not match. A bleaching treatment for those teeth or choosing does not make sense. Therefore, consult your dentist or dental hygienist before bleaching your teeth. Discuss your wishes and ask if the desired result is achievable.

Is home bleach under the supervision of the dentist or dental hygiënist harmful to my teeth?

Research has shown that the outer part of the enamel is temporarily slightly less hard after bleaching. The acid in the bleach gel turns the glaze light and superficially on. The disadvantage is similar to the damage to a tooth that has been in contact with soft drinks for some time. Replace these glaze changes as soon as the glaze comes into contact with saliva. Flush your mouth immediately after bleaching with a fluoride rinse aid. Home bleaching under the supervision of your dentist or dental hygienist has no permanent adverse effects if you follow the instructions.

Can I eat and drink anything during bleaching?

During the bleaching process, the glaze of the teeth and choose something more porous. That's temporary. The glaze is recovered. During the treatment with the bleach, certain foods and beverages may adversely affect the result. Examples include coffee, tea, red wine, carbonated soft drinks, citrus juice and dye-containing foods (such as fruit jams). During treatment, the use of these products, as well as smoking, is advisable.

Deze voedingsmiddelen moet u vermijden tijdens de bleekbehandeling

Is do it yourself bleaching safe?

Bleaching yourself can be unsafe. In some stores and especially on the Internet, various bleaching products are available for sale. These products are not specifically made for your teeth. If a bleach is not good to fit your teeth, choose the bleach (hydrogen peroxide) on your gums. This can cause pain and damage. Many products do not work well or contain high concentrations of peroxide. If you want to bleach your teeth, always do so under the guidance of your dentist or dental hygiënist.

What will be the result?

The bleaching result is different for everyone. The basic color of your dental bone largely determines the final result. And that basic color is different for everyone. The bleach result is sometimes not permanent. In some cases the discoloration will return after a few years. The formation of dental bone simply continues. Even bleached teeth, like bleached teeth, will eventually discolor by aging. This process goes faster if you smoke or use a lot of nutrients. The effect of prolonged or repeated bleaching on the dental tissue is not entirely known. The bleaching result is different for everyone.

Why not whitening teeth with whitening toothpastes?

The effect of toothpastes that whit your teeth is not scientifically proven. But whitening toothpastes can clean your teeth better. And cleaner teeth look whiter.

Composite Restorations

Do you have any perforations or a tooth has been broken? With a composite restoration we can restore the tooth, that nothing else can be seen. A little piece of art in your mouth!

Gaps (caries) or a broken piece of tooth can be repaired with a dental filling, called composite. For example, they apply very well when repairing teeth after an accident or dental discoloration.

composietrestauratie voortanden composietrestauratie voortanden

After the teeth are completely cleaned and drilled, the dentist applies a special type of glue to the tooth. This makes the filling stronger. This glue is hardened with blue light. Then, composite paste is put in the cleaned hole. Using the blue light, the filling is cured. The filling is finished with a drill and put in the right shape.

Root canal treatment

 Inflammation dental tissue no longer cures. Teeth and chooses consist of a crown and one or more roots. The crown is the part you see. The roots do not see you. They are anchored under your gums. In each root, a canal, the root canal. These include nerve fibers and small blood vessels. This living tissue is also called pulpa. If the tissue is inflamed or has been inflamed, the dentist performs a root canal treatment.

Which causes inflammatory dental tissue?

Tooth decay or leaky filling may cause your tooth tissue to become inflamed. A hard blow on your tooth can also be a reason. Bacteria are usually the cause of inflammation. Feel your teeth or choose sensitive when drinking cold or hot drinks? That can be a first signal. Sometimes inflammation does not cause any complaints, but severe pain also occurs. Your dentist must remove the inflamed dental tissue, otherwise it will die. When the dental tissue is not removed, the inflammation may extend to your jawbone. As a result, jawbone can be lost around the teeth and teeth. In the end, so many jawbones can disappear that teeth and chooses disappear or even fall out. You notice a jawbone inflammation when nearing. Your tooth or choice may then feel too high.

What happens during a root canal treatment?

During a root canal treatment, the dentist removes the inflamed dental tissue. Inflammation dental tissue no longer cures. It is an irreversible process. That is why your dentist removes the inflamed tissue. A root canal treatment is also referred to as channel or nerve treatment. The root canal treatment The root canal treatment occurs under local anesthesia if your dental tissue is still (in part) "alive." An anesthetic is sometimes not necessary if your dental tissue is already extinct. Often your dentist makes one or more x-rays. Thus he has a good control over the course of treatment. Your dentist first makes your tooth or open and removes the inflamed tissue. After that, he cleans the canal with small fillets and rinse it with a disinfectant rinsing liquid. Then the channels are filled. After the root canal treatment, your dentist will complete your tooth or close with a filling. If the dial is weakened, a crown may be required. A tooth or choir treated in this way may take a long time.

Can a root canal treatment be performed at each tooth or choir?

Sometimes your dentist can not perform root canal treatment because there are additional problems. It may prevent the tooth or dial from being removed. With your dentist you can discuss the possible solutions for replacing your lost tooth or choose. For example, consider a bridge.

Is a root canal treat painful?

A root canal treatment is usually not painful with anesthesia.

How long does a root canal treatment take?

The duration of a root canal treatment depends on the number of root canals. Teeth usually have one root. Choosing a lot more often. The treatment time therefore varies from half to one and a half hours. Often the dentist can complete the root canal treatment at once. Sometimes you have to return a number of times. 

Does a root canal treatment provide after pain?

After cleaning the root canals you can get a napkin, which can last for a few days. You can suppress the napkin with a good painkiller. An antibiotic is usually not necessary. 

Do teeth change colour after a root canal treatment?

A tooth or a choir usually does not discolour after a root canal treatment. If any discoloration occurs, your dentist can usually fix it. There are several possibilities for this. Ask your dentist for advice.
