Cosmetic dentistry is a term that encompasses a large number of procedures. It relates to the global overall appearance of smile to how individual teeth are restored to look pleasing. The starting point for a pleasing smile is to take a series of photos and analyze them. The esthetics are determined by color, position, and shape of the teeth as well as the amount of tooth the individual shows when smiling, which is variable from one patient to another. It is important to look at the entire face for symmetry and balance when we are looking at the entire smile. The length and width proportions are critical in what our eye sees as esthetic and pleasing.
Breaking this down on a tooth by tooth basis, we have the ability to change color, position and shape of teeth to create great esthetics. Tooth color can be changed by the use of whitening products, of which there are several options, and the use of restorative materials such as tooth colored composites or porcelain in the form of veneers and crowns.
We have been trained on and have introduced a revolutionary process for the placement of composites, a common term for this years ago was “bonding”. We now have the ability to use the Bioclear Matrix System, which allows us to place the smoothest, strongest, nicest looking tooth colored resins that we have ever done.
