Dentistry has traditionally focused on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing and treating oral disease. However, dentists who are highly skilled at cosmetic dentistry procedures give their patients additional options to improve the appearance of their teeth, smile and mouth. In other words, restorative dentistry, also referred to as general and/or family dentistry practices address dental problems that require necessary treatment; whereas cosmetic dentistry provides elective – or desired – treatments and services.
There are various reasons why people choose cosmetic dentistry. Generally, the common motivation is to improve the appearance of their smile. Dental porcelain veneers are a great way to enhance the look of many teeth at once.(more…)
What do porcelain veneers have to do with supply and demand? Surely you remember from economics class. The law of supply and demand states that as long as there is a need or desire for something, there will always be a demand for it. Of course, public demand for something will always vary on a number of different aspects particularly that of limited supply.
When it comes to dentistry however, not everything seems to follow this rule, especially when it comes to a beautiful smile. Although there have been numerous new innovations in dental technology that have enabled dentists to provide their patients with the classic “Hollywood smile”, the public demand for a beautiful smile has never faltered.
Originally popularized in the 1980’s, porcelain veneers have emerged as one of the most effective tools in cosmic dentistry. They have allowed dentists everywhere to restore and improve the smiles of their patients and provide them with that coveted (and always in demand) beautiful smile.
