You probably wonder how celebrities get their mega-watt smile. Is it real, porcelain veneers or something else? Or could it be just photo shopped?! Gasp! It is so hard to tell these days which pictures tell the truth and which are just plain digitally enhanced.
Fortunately, not all of these celebrity smiles are photo-shopped. Their megawatt smiles are accessible and realistic! Yes, they are made possible by a special breed of dentists. And you can also have the perfect set of teeth to flash that blinding perfect smile.
Before you go search-engine crazy about these super smile makers you better know what you’re looking for. And what you are looking for are cosmetic dentists!
Compared to general dentists who focus their practice on the general health of the oral cavity as well as diagnosing oral cavity diseases, cosmetic dentists are keener on aesthetic appearance of the mouth, the teeth, and the smile of the patient.
They have an approach to cosmetic dentistry with a mixture of engineering, realism, and the art of perfection. And they will not stop until they have reached the perfect smile on your face. Perfect but not too perfect it would look fake. Now that’s a good mixture of dental science and dental art. Cosmetic dentistry, as the practice is called, utilizes advanced dental equipment such as lasers, oral imaging equipment, caries detection equipment, CAD/CAM restoration etc.
All these for making that smile better than before and satisfy the patient with great results.
A little tour around the clinic to check out their dental equipment won’t hurt your decision to choose the best cosmetic dentist for you either. And while you’re at it, checking out past patients’ before and after photos is also a good idea to check out the style of work the cosmetic dentist has.
Moreover, it is also important to inquire about their credentials. A reliable cosmetic dentist is usually a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry or some other Esthetic or Cosmetic Academy. A cosmetic dentist has studied and trained in this area by doing extensive continuing education.
Dental procedures that are done by cosmetic dentists are teeth whitening, inlays/onlays or a.k.a. dental fillings; dental veneers, composite bonding, mouth reconstruction, dental implants, and smile makeovers.
For more information about the procedures that they can offer, contact the best cosmetic dentist in your area- Dr. Christian Yaste and Dr. Joe Hufanda, of Ballantyne Center for Dentistry.
Go ahead; do not hesitate to ask questions to your cosmetic dentist. After all, this is your smile at stake here and you deserve the best! Your dream of a lovely smile is soon to be realized. Check out this video where Dave gets the smile of his dreams with dental veneers.
