Occasional dental checkups, cleaning and corrective procedures seem to be necessary. If teeth have been neglected for years or maybe decades, lots will need to be done. While aches, infections, and extractions or emergencies would require dedicated dental treatments, what about the esthetic factors? Even though no physical problem may be bothering you, discolored or crooked teeth can be very depressing. Such conditions not only lead to a loss of confidence but are certainly very unhealthy. A cheerful personality that studies and works well is expressed not only through stylish dresses and hairstyles but pretty teeth too!

Get rid of apprehensions

Advanced technology has a solution for whatever dental problem may be plaguing you. While miracles may not be expected, a tremendous improvement in the appearance of teeth, whether in shape, color, longevity or alignment is quite feasible. Diagnosis is easily accomplished on computer screens. Molds and implants are all customized, prepared by software in the laboratory and so the chances of human error do not exist. Besides, everything is healthy and hygienic; the office experience is relaxed and friendly with all the necessary instructions and advice rendered.

A lengthy session with the mirror would remind where the weaknesses lie if any. While nature may not be all that perfect in the best of times, a helping hand may be necessary to get the best out of the teeth that need to serve for a lifetime. Aging leads to many problems, including weakening teeth.

Invisalign

The traditional metal braces of the olden days presented some problems like discomfort. Besides, everybody would know what you were up to. Invisalign gets rid of such issues. Being transparent, nobody will know and there is no discomfort. You receive a series of those molds that are worn consecutively. Gradually, the teeth move into alignment. You get to see the images beforehand of what would happen later.

Not everybody suffers from the crooked teeth syndrome. If alert, it is often observed that certain teeth are cracked or chipped, often due to the usual wear and tear. Falls or biting on very hard substances could also create such problems. The tooth shape could be artistically restored with little porcelain molds that copy the exact shape and feel of the original tooth. It will last very long too with nothing to worry about. Get it all fixed for good with cosmetic dentistry.

One of the main pitfalls of cosmetic dentistry is choosing the wrong cosmetic dentist. As with plastic surgery and other cosmetic procedures, a successful result is large dependent on the professional and in this case cosmetic dentist that you choose.

Most cosmetic dentistry is extremely visual with poor results being immediately noticeable to everyone you see. If you want to feel good in the knowledge that you look good then you need to make sure you are careful when selecting a cosmetic dentist to perform your cosmetic procedure.

As with most things it's easy to get ahead of yourself once you have decided to undergo a cosmetic procedure and just choose a dentist as quickly as possible without giving quality of work any consideration. Most people believe that a dentist is a dentist and that all dentists can perform cosmetic dentistry procedures to the same standard.

The truth is that mainstream family doctors are not trained in the field of cosmetic dentistry and not all cosmetic dentists are able to adequately perform every cosmetic procedure. A dentist who is good at dental implants or dental bridges may not be so experienced in dental bonding for example and a cosmetic dentist that specializes in teeth whitening may be good with whitening products and dental veneers but not so experienced in dental braces.

A good starting point is to get a recommendation for a cosmetic dentist from someone who has already had some cosmetic dentistry work done or, if you are friendly with your family dentist they may be able to point you in the direction of a cosmetic dentist who specialties in the cosmetic procedure that you are interested in having done.

If you can not get a good recommendation and you have to resort to yellow pages to find a cosmetic dentist in your area do not be afraid to check out a few.

Prices are something that you need to know but should not be the only basis for making your final decision as to which cosmetic dentist you choose.

Go for an initial consultation with more than one cosmetic dentist to get a good feel for the surroundings and what experience the dentist has. Discuss what you want to have done and listened to what the cosmetic dentist has to say and then compare the response with future and / or previous consultations.

Among the many dental procedures that we try to find the best cosmetic dentists for is teeth whitening. Those of us who have lived practically all our lives covering our mouth when we laugh or adopt a somber demeanor just to avoid showing our teeth in public know how important it is to find a dentist that can not only do the procedure but also one who understands the discomfort we are going through.

Cosmetic dentists know all about being socially inept and being incapable of having a social life because of the embarrassment of having unsightly and discolored teeth. In a world where physical appearance is something we set much store by, cosmetic dentists know how important a great smile is to people who want them and as such, give them what they want accordingly.

People usually loath going to the dentist’s office because they don’t know what to expect and because they don’t want to feel the pain usually associated with dental procedures. With cosmetic dentists, however, it is the exact opposite. While people know and are aware of the fact that they will experience pain and some discomfort, the fact that the results are going to be amazing and life-changing puts a whole new perspective on things.

Beauty after all means undergoing some measure of pain to achieve the best results that can get you anything you want in life, from your dream job to your dream guy or girl. This is what a great smile gives us and this is also why people want to get the best only from the best cosmetic dentists. However, choosing the best dentist will depend on a lot of factors, but mainly it is determined by how comfortable you are working with them, how accessible they are to you and most importantly, how affordable the procedure is.

For example, one of the first questions usually asked from cosmetic dentists concerns insurance. For the most part, insurance doesn’t cover teeth whitening because it is considered cosmetic rather than therapeutic in nature.

Also, while getting your teeth whitened by a regular dentist is OK, a cosmetic dentist will go as far as informing you about the procedure and what you can expect. Among the most popular questions asked is how long the effects of whitening will last and if there are significant damages to the enamel when you get it done. Whitening … More

Cosmetic dentistry is incontestably one of the hottest specialties in dentistry at the moment. Most of the young dentists graduating from schools of dentistry are finding themselves greatly drawn to cosmetic dentistry, when considering specialties to go into. Even for those who don’t eventually end up in cosmetic dentistry, it usually at least one of the things they seriously consider. All this, of course, begs the question, to the critical thinker, as to why so many dentists are going into cosmetic dentistry.

You don’t have to look very far for answers to the question as to why so many dentists are going into cosmetic dentistry.

For one, if we are to be honest with ourselves, cosmetic-dentistry is one of the fields where the money really is. Nobody wants to get into a specialty where they will face real challenges getting ‘their daily bread’ – the interests of medicine notwithstanding. The economic allure of cosmetic dentistry is attributable to the great demand for the services the specialty offers today’s ‘image obsessed’ person. As we all know, from elementary economics is that when the services of a particular specialist rises, their pay rates are likely to go up too. Even where the pay rate does not increase in terms of margins charged, opportunity exists to make up in volumes: there are simply too many people looking for the services of the cosmetic dentist.

Second is the fact that cosmetic-dentistry is one of the fields in dentistry which gives one the opportunity to indulge their creative side. Dentistry, as indeed all fields of medicine, is a rather scientific field – and it is only in a few sub-fields, an instance of which is cosmetic dentistry, that a practitioner who is artistically inclined gets a way of practicing that artistry in bringing an end to human suffering. This is important for many aspiring dentists who find themselves torn between going for an artistic career or going for a scientific career, before finally opting for dentistry. In cosmetic dentistry, where dentistry meets art, these guys find a good compromise, where they can practice the artistry they forewent in favor of a scientific career.

Third is the fact that cosmetic-dentistry is one of the fields in medicine where a person gets an opportunity to truly and profoundly impact on their patients’ lives. Let’s face it: we are living in an extremely image-conscious society, where a person’s … More

Tooth decay is often the beginning of a downward spiral. This may seem like a minor problem, however, the loss of a single tooth can lead to a domino effect. Once that space has been created the other teeth begin to shift and lose their original position. This can alter the bite pattern and erode other teeth ensuring more decay to follow. The gums will also become loose as the teeth shift, thus creating an entryway for bacteria to grow. This can progress to a gum disease called gingivitis if not treated quickly.

Cosmetic dentistry has progressed faster than any other form of oral health care in the past twenty-five years. The dentist can create near perfect faces now by altering the height of the teeth, correcting abnormal chew patterns and correcting asymmetry improvements. The materials used have improved and the procedures are essentially painless. There are also many options to keep patients comfortable and safe.

The alternatives to problem solving have imploded to include every conceivable issue from straightening misaligned teeth to implanting new ones. A habit such as bruxism, which is when a person grinds their teeth while sleeping, damages the enamel on the teeth eliminating the natural protection. This crushing can also result in an uneven bite pattern encouraging tooth loss in the end.

If a tooth is not too decayed or fractured to be restored, an inlay or an onlay can be used. Sometimes a regular filling is not sufficient and a crown is not required. These fillings are the in between solutions, usually reserved for teeth in the back of the mouth to prevent a root canal or further damage from occurring.

When a root canal is necessary the infected part of the tooth is replaced with a rubber type filling and covered with a color-matching crown to prevent further problems. This allows the normal function to return and protects the other teeth from abnormal wear. They can last a very long time with proper care.

Porcelain veneers are a very thin covering used to alter the appearance of teeth. Using a bonding application, they can change the color, the shape and sometimes the size of teeth so they look completely natural. Cosmetic dentistry has perfected this process to repair chipped or discolored teeth.

Dental Implants last longer and are just as strong as natural teeth. They also look and function like natural teeth. The … More

Prosthodontics is a field of dentistry that specializes in replacing missing teeth with implants and prosthetics (false teeth). A prosthodontist is a dentist who has undergone a four-year ADA program to make him eligible for practice prosthodontics, in a sense that he has the skills to administrator a full mouth reconstruction in cases where the patient has lost all of his / her teeth due to an accident or because they are crooked and the patients wanted to replace them with dentures.

A prosthodontist also specializes in the diagnosis of teeth and mouth bite routines. A person with an awkward bite is premature to future mouth injuries in long-term impairments. The work of a prosthodontist is delicate and requires care and precision when creating false teeth. These false teeth or "dentures", as both dentists and patients prefer to call them, help the patient in facilitating a normal bite. Dentures are made up of preserved materials (for the teeth) and special plastic (for the gums), that give the dentures a natural and life-like look. Dentures need not only be for an entire set of teeth. Some dentures are used to replace even just two missing front teeth.

Prosthetics are expected to last for about 30 years or more, depending on the eating habits and hygiene of the patient. Dentures are supposedly to be brushed like normal teeth, to let them live longer and to reduce the bacteria and stain build-up.

Severe cases of dislocated teeth that have been caused by congenital defects and trauma from accidents require more specialized training when installing prosthetics intended to replace dislocated body parts other than the teeth. "Maxillofacial prosthetics" is a specialization requires an additional year of exclusive training in Maxillofacial Prosthetics. This sub-specialty of prosthodontics requires more precision, since other prosthetics are expected to be fabricated and installed on the gravely malformed face. This includes artificial eyes, nose and other facial prostheses. The prosthodontist will, more often than not, require aid from other medical and dental specialists to conceptualize the new prosthetics.

Maxillofacial prosthodontics is the most highly regarded specialization in the field of dentistry due to the complexity and longetivity of work required to restore severe cases of both dental and maxillofacial deformities.

Fixed prosthodontics is a cosmetic / esthetic way to replace missing or repair / concealed damaged teeth by the use of several dentistry methods, which include:

1. Crowns – or … More
