Gem Orthodontics is a dental clinic that specializes in orthodontic treatment.
The purpose of orthodontic treatment is to move the teeth to their regular position by using wires and mouth guards. Additionally, it aims at either preventing or helping to recover esthetic and stomatognathic functions by changing morphology of maxilla (upper jaw) and mandible (lower jaw). By orthodontic treatment people change their alignment of teeth, become healthier and their life changes considerably. Moreover, it is important to mention that the orthodontics dental clinic is also a place for long-term relationships with important patients.
Having said that, we managed to express the alignment of teeth by the herringbone pattern in wood flooring and ribs pattern in the wall surface. In addition, we arranged the indirect (concealed) lighting to create an image of shining teeth.
As the materials are concerned, we used wood and copper that change over the years due to aging. Undoubtedly, it is a design that allows to enjoy a space for a long time.
We hope that the patients will feel the “time passing”, get relaxed and then receive the treatment.
