It is very rare for a person to have a set of perfect teeth. Most people have crooked, stained or discolored, chipped or spotted, cracked, worn, or buck teeth or have gaps between their teeth. This definitely wanes away confidence of the person. Due to lack of confidence such people feel quite awkward in social surroundings and withdraw from others. This kind of inferiority complex adversely affect’s the person’s life.
Cosmetic dentistry can help such people improve the appearance of their teeth and smiles so that a semblance of confidence can return back in their outlook. Some of the cosmetic dentistry treatments in Daytona Beach include teeth whitening procedures, enamel shaping, bonding, dental recontouring, use of inlays and onlays, gum lifts, dental implants, cerec restorations, crowns, braces, dental bridges, orthodontics, and porcelain veneers and crowns.
Earlier, cosmetic dentistry was not much popular as it was invasive, painful, and exorbitantly costly, besides the fact that it was not always successful.
Although in the recent years, a number of technological advances have been made in the development of strong and durable dental materials used in cosmetic dentistry.
Dental materials play a significant role in cosmetic surgery. Further, the experience and skill of laboratory technicians, who prepare dental materials is all important. Without their support, cosmetic dentists cannot really hope to succeed in cosmetic dentistry.
Another of these technological advances is in the field of computer imaging using CAD/CAM software. Through use of computer imaging software today, cosmetic dentists can image how an individual’s teeth look currently and how they will look after cosmetic dentistry is performed. Such a technique is known as virtual restoration.
Another aspect of this is that an individual can tell a cosmetic dentist exactly how he/she wants his/her teeth’s appearance to be altered. Accordingly, cosmetic dentistry can not only alter the computer image of the individual’s teeth accordingly, but a properly qualified cosmetic Daytona dentist, who is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), can actually refashion the teeth to look like that altered image.
