Cosmetic Dentistry In A New Era

Its been a while since I last blogged on all things dental and cosmetic. Finding time over the last 12 months has proved challenging to say the least but we are back! So what has changed since I last wrote here?
Probably the the biggest shift in cosmetic dentistry  that I haev noticed  seems to be towards the idea called ABB.   Or Align Bleach & Bond.  As a dentist who subscribes to a minimally invasive approach wherever possible this shift makes me very happy.

Align
There is a ( thankfully) growing realisation within dentistry that if we move the teeth towards a more optimal position first. The following stages of aesthetic or cosmetic treatment requires less or even no removal of healthy tooth tissue at all.
I have written a lot about  aligning teeth for cosmetic purposes in adults.  Generally we are looking to make small to medium moves to a few teeth and specifically looking to avoid reorganising the back teeth. Inman Aligner and   6 Month Smiles  are the two big brands in this area at the moment.

Bleach
Just as it sounds - teeth whitening, either a few shades lighter to wind the clock back a few years or deep bleaching for the whitest possible shade


Bond
Resin bonding is the use of colour matched highly aesthetic filling material to change the shape of your teeth. While not suitable for everyone it can be a great alternative to porcelain veneers. Resin bonding has advantages and disadvantages with we will chat more about in future. But if you have a specific question ow please leave a comment or e-mail us at the practice.

  15. What is the difference between a regular dentist and a cosmetic dentist? Does the cosmetic dentist deal more with the overall perfected look of teeth? I've been thinking about getting an appointment to get my teeth whitened!

  19. Taking different angled pictures of your smile never crossed my mind. I always see my smile head on. I guess this might help me understand where my teeth need to be moved to be in the right position. http://www.brontedentalcentre.com.au/#!services/c1pna

  22. I would love to go get some cosmetic dental work done on my teeth. I could really benefit from the first step, align. My teeth have been crooked for as long as I can remember, and I never got braces as a kid. I wonder if people would think it's weird to see an old guy like me wearing braces. http://www.qualitydentalcareutah.com/services.html

  23. I'm right there with you Talmage. I really need to get my teeth aligned properly. I never had braces but three of my siblings did. My niece recently got them. I'm having a hard time going through with braces because of how old I am right now. I'll feel weird being the old guy with braces at my work.

  27. It is really exciting that the field of cosmetic dentistry is advancing. The "Align, Bleach, and Bond" model sounds like it could be very effective. I will have to test it out because my teeth could use a little work.

  28. It's amazing the things they can do with cosmetic dentistry. They can help in the beauty aspect, which is great. But even more impressive is the reconstruction that they can perform for injured people.

  29. I had braces as a kid. It wasn't a horrible experience, but having straight teeth only helped focus on the non white color my teeth are. Having a confident smile helps in life.

  31. 'The Confessions of a Former Cosmetic Dentist' by Michael Zuk is an interesting book to read. I recently got it from the online store and I was amazed by the confessions made by Michael, a cosmetic dentistry practitioner. It is really hard to confess the faults that you have made, but the fact remains the same that you will learn from the mistakes itself.

  33. I think that getting cosmetic dentistry work is something that I want to do! I haven't ever had very white teeth, and I think it would really help my smile to get them bleached. I might also get them aligned in some way, since they aren't as straight as they used to be! http://www.flemingtonfamilycosmeticdental.com/services.html

  42. You know these very new terms to me, which are I think used by any dentist for treating his patients. Thanks for telling me this on your blog. Actually now I understand why last week, the “Torrance dentist” was asking to me, about doing ‘deep bleaching’ as the treatment of my teeth problem.

  43. I think in today's world, an imperfect smile is very noticeable. I know a lot of people that go to cosmetic dentists like these to get implants and other things like that. They get their smiles and their whole mouth looking perfect. I have had to take a buddy into a cosmetic dentist before to get some work done. http://www.soothingdds.com

  44. I know that I would like a nicer smile. It seems to help a cosmetic dentist to look at a photograph of your smile to point out everything you would like to change when going in for an appointment. I'll keep that in mind when I go in to have my teeth whitened.
