What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic Dentistry has become an art form in modern dental care. Because of this, the dental consumer needs to be aware of the choices available when selecting an office to create their desired image. Most important to your decision should be the practitioner's training and experience, as well as their commitment to continuing education in this rapidly evolving field. You should seek out a practitioner who is dedicated to today's advanced technologies, which will enhance both your comfort and education. And of course you should always demand a practitioner who will take the time to answer all of your questions prior to treatment.
Today's modern, state-of-the-art facility includes intraoral cameras, high speed or digital radiography, air abrasion or laser capabilities, and a highly trained and knowledgeable staff. The practitioner will also be well-versed in the variety of bondable esthetic materials which are available today, and will be experienced enough to know exactly which material is right for you and your lifestyle. Just because a practitioner knows how to apply the materials to a tooth and make them stick is no guarantee that they will look, feel and perform like a natural tooth! This is where the practitioner's experience and credentials become crucial.
For example, take a close look at this image. Do you detect anything at all?
