Great Grins: Smile those Pearly Whites
By Dr. Chanele M. Pornillos DMD, MN,MSHSE
Do you admire your favorite act or’s flawless smile? Ever wonder how actors and actresses have gotten those picture-perfect teeth? Have you ever asked yourself how can I get those same perfectly-aligned pearly-white teeth? The answer: Dental Veneers.
Dental Veneers are thin custom-made casing placed on the front surface of teeth. It is used to fix misaligned or irregularly shaped tooth, fractured tooth, discolored teeth, and for closing small spaces between teeth. Dental Veneers is just one of the many dental options under Cosmetic dentistry.
Cosmetic Dentistry or Esthetic Dentistry primarily focuses on improving the color, shape and appearance of teeth, which in turn enriches the overall appearance of a patient. This field of dentistry traces its roots way back in the ancient times, when Egyptians used a range of materials from seashells to gold to make their teeth look more attractive. This is quite conservative when compared to methods of improving appearance in the early 20 century. During this time, movie films are starting to become popular, and actors need to physically appeal to the growing number of movie goers. American actresses purposely have their molars extracted, so that their cheek their cheek pads drop to the spaces of their lost teeth, giving an illusion of a more prominent cheek-bone and a smaller contoured jaw, an essential measure of beauty at that era.
Modern Cosmetic Dentistry started in the 1980’s during the introduction of new tooth -colored materials. Since then, a wider range of services became available for clients. To take you to the process of customized cosmetic dental service, the dentist will start by asking the primary concern of the client. This is followed by a detailed medical and dental history, then a thorough dental examination. This information, as well as other factors like budget and duration of treatment, will be considered before arriving at what specific treatment the client needs. The array of services includes light-activated teeth whitening material, tooth-colored restorations, metal-free crowns, gum prostheses, and dental implants.
