Cosmetic Dentistry Is The Name And Designer Smiles Are The Game

Sep 11, 2008
Ever thought someone has been giving you a fake smile all night? Well you could be more right than you know. As cosmetic surgery becomes ever more common and the public become increasingly self conscious about their appearance, the new vogue operation is to create a new smile all for yourself. All the celebrities do it, whether they admit to it or not. This raises the point that these operations can be done with the utmost discretion so you can claim you simply slept with a toothpaste covered hanger in your mouth. But a lot goes into the perfect grin; there are a multitude of features to think about, not just your teeth, lips and gums. You must also take into consideration the frontal form and the lateral view which are as important as each other.

Regarding the dentures, patients are most commonly concerned with the aesthetics of the 6 upper and 6 lower incisors and canines. Any number of techniques can be employed to make minor adjustments or radical alterations from, whitening, reshaping, applying veneers, bridges and crowns, or implants. Porcelain dental veneers are a thin, semi-translucent layer that are permanently stuck to the front of the teeth in order to improve a broken, crooked or chipped surface as well as to cover excessive stains or washed out fillings. If you are unfortunate enough to have dentures that are beyond repair, implants could be the answer. They provide an artificial root made of titanium which is fused to the jaw for the missing tooth and within which stabilises a restoration model with bridges and crowns. Fingers crossed you won't come out of the operation resembling a James Bond villain.

This sort of surgery cannot be performed by any old orthodontist and you certainly don't want a cowboy dentist let lose on your dentures so researching your surgeon is imperative, often recommendation by a friend can prove the best bet. Check their level of experience and any testimonials available on their website or in their practice. Depending on the extremities of your smile design the orthodontist may have to work with a ceramic technician. If you are requiring bridges or crowns they will have to craft and fabricate the restoration so it matches your shape, colour and biting surface. Therefore find out who the ceramist will be because the more information you can find out about them and their past the better and the more comfortable you will feel going under the knife, or the laser. In addition those that offer free consultation can be worth taking advantage of, at least for the free advice if nothing else.

The innovations in dentistry over the last decade have furthered the profession phenomenally and the capabilities of experienced practitioners are quite incredible. If you've got deep enough insecurities and pockets you could be smiling your dream smile in just a couple of weeks.
