Cosmetic dentistry involves the fusion of art and technology to restore damaged, missing, or unsightly teeth to a condition where they look as good as, if not better than nature’s own. Cosmetic dentistry can give you a “smile makeover”. Modern techniques, when combined with the skill and artistry of an experienced cosmetic dentist can do wonders for the appearance of your teeth, which in turn improves your smile, your attractiveness, and can even improve your whole life!
WHAT CAN COSMETIC DENTISTRY DO?
It is obvious that a white, bright smile makes a person appear healthy and attractive and is a tremendous asset both in business and in one’s private life. A good cosmetic dentist is not only skilled in the latest techniques but is also knowledgeable about aesthetics and how teeth should appear in proportion to one another in order to achieve a natural effect. There is nothing worse than front teeth that are obviously crowns and are prominent and bulky, or just too big for the mouth. They just look plain artificial and can fool nobody. The best cosmetic dentistry keeps your teeth looking like natural teeth whilst improving them at the same time.
The principle of the “Golden Ratio” as discovered by the Greeks long ago is an important one in getting artificial teeth to look like real ones. This ratio is about 1.62 and refers to the relative length compared to width which is much favored by nature because it just looks right. You find it in teeth, the face, Regency windows, and very many other places as the ideal aesthetic proportion. Your Houston cosmetic dentist is aware of these aesthetic principles and combines this knowledge with the very latest technology to give you the smile you have always wanted.
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a whole range of procedures and treatments from the straightforward teeth whitening to complex ones involving full mouth reconstruction.
Even simple cosmetic dental procedures like teeth whitening can make a tremendous difference to your smile and improve your general appearance. If your teeth are basically sound but just rather drab looking or stained and discolored from drinking lots of tea or coffee, then “power whitening” is the answer. In the dental chair you would have a powerful whitening gel painted over your teeth and activated by a special light-source that produces energetic oxygen molecules that can penetrate tooth enamel and quickly neutralize stains and discolorations. In less than an hour your teeth can be transformed from dark and dull to light and bright. A typical result is for the teeth to become 6-10 shades lighter, giving you a smile to rival that of a Hollywood celebrity.
Various other advanced techniques and treatments are available to correct misaligned, crooked, or protruding teeth, restore broken teeth, and even replace missing teeth in a way that produces a near perfect result so that nobody would guess that there had ever been a problem. If your teeth are less than perfect right now, why not check out your Houston dentist’s website and be amazed by the miracle of modern cosmetic dentistry?
