People seek cosmetic dentistry for a variety of reasons. Some simply want to look younger, and cosmetic dentistry is like a dental facelift that can quickly "reverse" the natural aging process of the teeth. Others, the majority, have had unattractive teeth their entire lives and have always felt self-conscious because of them. They rarely smile, which can hide a warm side of their personality.
In the 1920's and 30's, actors and performers would often go to the extreme measure of having their teeth extracted and dentures (false teeth) made to improve their smile. Fortunately, far more conservative approaches are available thanks to advances in today's technology. Bonding, porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers are among those approaches. Bonding is used in reshaping teeth and closing gaps between teeth. Porcelain crowns can replace missing or severely compromised tooth structure, and last but not least, veneers.
Porcelain Laminate Veneers are custom-made porcelain wafers that the dentist places over the front of the teeth to enhance their appearance.
Veneers can dramatically change a person's smile and help improve self-confidence.
The whole procedure only takes two weeks. For more information click here http://www.ADA.org/public/topics/veneers.asp.
Careful planning from the dentist and good communication with the laboratory technician are essential in creating beautiful masterpieces that can mimic nature. It takes extensive knowledge of tooth shape and color to artfully design the new teeth that we want to look as natural as possible.
