With the boom of cosmetic surgery and the popularity of the “Extreme Makeover” television show, more and more people are seeking professional help to look younger and healthier. The art of the science of dentistry has matured to such a level that is possible to restore your teeth to a young appearance while improving their function. As a result, your younger appearance lasts. The benefits of comprehensive restoration result in beauty and the improved health of your smile.
As part of a comprehensive evaluation, you and your dentist may have discussions regarding the appearance of your mouth and changes that you would like to see made. This can be as simple as whitening your teeth to as complex as changing their shape, size, and position. Your dentist is ideally suited to assist you in exploring all the possibilities.
After spending time gathering all the necessary diagnostic aids including models of your teeth, x-rays, and photographs, a co-discovery process is used to determine the best way to achieve your esthetic desires for your smile.
The best dentists understand that comprehensive dentistry includes creating the most esthetic results possible and that by restoring the proper form to the mouth, a natural, beautiful and long lasting smile will result.
The explosion of new technologies gives dentists wonderful techniques and materials to create natural beauty in a manner that was not achievable a few short years ago. There are numerous options available that help to maximize the results.
If you are wondering what the possibilities might be for yourself, the best dentists can help create a vision for you as you discover together what might work for you. Your dentist may prepare a wax model of what is possible in your mouth. He or she could show you before and after pictures of other people that have had similar results. Computerized images may be used to simulate the possibilities and allow you to be able to reflect on your options.
Whatever the form the envisioning process takes, it is important to understand what you most want, then determine with your dentist how it can best happen.
