What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Aesthetic dentistry is an area of dentistry whose goal is to restore the natural beauty of teeth. Aesthetic or cosmetic dentistry combines all disciplines of Odontology. Initially, gum and tooth improvement techniques were developed for models, movie stars and all others who felt a professional need for a beautiful smile and were willing to take certain health risks. However, dentists have gone through extraordinary measures to improve such techniques and make them available to a broader public. Today’s materials and therapies have been vigorously tested and are proven to be reliable enough for everyday use. Please note that a perfect smile can differ from culture to culture. In Europe for instance, the so-called "Hollywood smile“, is often perceived as unnatural because of its bright white look. So be sure to give your dentist a precise description of the smile you want to achieve. The aim of cosmetic dentistry is to make your smile look natural, healthy and friendly.
