Having a gap in your smile can make you want to hide your mouth in photos, or keep it covered up when laughing out loud. These kinds of worries about your appearance can prevent you from properly enjoying your social life.
An organized and systematic approach is required to evaluate, diagnose and resolve aesthetic problems predictably. It is of prime importance that the final result is not dependent only on the looks alone. Our ultimate goal as clinicians is to achieve pleasing composition in the smile by creating an arrangement of various aesthetic elements.
The first stage is a consultation to find out what you want to achieve and assess the state of your existing teeth and gums. Your mouth and jaw need to be healthy so, if necessary, preparatory work is carried out. A smile design should always include the evaluation and analysis of both facial and dental composition.
It is our duty to carefully diagnose, analyze and deliver the best to our patients, taking into account all of the discussed factors. The smile designing done by us has to be as conservative as possible unlike the past. Our aim has to be less reduction of tooth structure and greater aesthetics and durability. This simply means that cosmetic dentistry has to be a multi-specialty branch.
The goal of an aesthetic makeover is to develop a peaceful and stable masticatory system, where the teeth, tissues, muscles, skeletal structures and joints all function in harmony.
Who is a Cosmetic Dentist?
Generally speaking, a cosmetic dentist is a restorative dentist who has extensively studied the concepts of smile design and dental materials to create what could best be described as works of art. Cosmetic dentists are usually affiliated with a professional organization that provides continuing education and levels of accreditation to verify outstanding achievement in the study of cosmetic dentistry.
What Should I Expect From A Cosmetic Consultation?
You can expect your dentist to ask you to describe in detail what you like and dislike about your smile, and what you want to change. Bringing photos of how you have looked in the past or would like to look in the future are helpful to serve as general guidelines. Because aesthetic problems such as missing or discolored teeth can also point to underlying health issues, a comprehensive oral exam is a must.
