Responsible Cosmetic Dentistry Aesthetics
Can you compare Cosmetic Dentistry to your car in the garage? How often do you see a beautiful car with really lousy wheels? Or, the other way around. In the automotive industry you might call it curb appeal. The tires can make up 15-20% of the entire visual experience. Such is your smile in regards to your overall appearance. A skilled, experienced cosmetic dentist can help to improve your appearance, your smile, even your self-esteem, and confidence.
Strength in numbers and research
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is an organization that supports and reinforces the practice of responsible aesthetics. The members believe that aesthetic dentistry must complement the overall general and oral health of the patient. AACD also strongly encourages that cosmetic dentistry integrate interdisciplinary medical and dental treatment to enhance outcomes and minimize the loss of any of your healthy human tissue. The members encourage treatment decisions based on the foundation of research-based protocols, combining them with sound clinical judgments through office consultations. The goal is long-term health through predictable dentistry.
More than Skin Deep
The commitment to education has led AACD members to believe that responsible aesthetics means dealing with beauty that’s more than skin-deep. Patients who have undergone treatment are often transformed from the inside out because knowledge in the dental profession for American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) members is constantly growing. The variety of procedures, techniques and materials are remarkable in making changes to your smile. A smile that connects WITH you.
Selecting a Cosmetic Dentist
Do your homework. It’s your smile. Research your candidates. Any dentist can call him or herself a cosmetic dentist. Consider it like an interview. How much time do they devote to cosmetic dentistry in their office? Do they participate in continuing education? See Before and After photos. Ask for referrals of friends and families, and once in a consultation, ask the dentist for his/her referrals as well. Arrive with your wish list and then develop a plan together in determining if there are health concerns. Look to the AACD for a member close to you. Confirm the credentials and experience level. Make your decision so that you feel confident you are getting the best treatment and will achieve the best possible results.
The Wide Scope of Possible Procedures
Cosmetic dentistry has evolved from simply replacing and restoring damaged teeth to covering a wide scope of esthetic procedures. Cosmetic dentistry today now includes tooth whitening, tooth bonding, tooth-colored restorations and fillings, porcelain veneers, orthodontics, dental implants, and more depending on your smile and your oral health. You’ll be surprised after a consultation.
A Positive Change
Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. Most think of tooth whitening or veneers when cosmetic dentistry comes to mind, but a cosmetic dentist can provide you so much more.
