In the last couple of years, there has been a lot of media attention on Esthetic dentistry, particularly extreme makeovers. Our philosophy is to enhance the beauty, and not to create an artificial look.
Through advancements, it is now possible to conservatively improve and strengthen the health and function of a patient's smile. Additionally, this procedure offers wonderful possibilities to improve one's overall appearance.
Esthetic dentistry does not only have a tremendous effect on self-esteem, it also improves the way the jaw functions. As teeth wear down or edges of teeth chip, the bite will eventually collapse - this will then place the burden of chewing on the jaw joints, instead of on the teeth. This, we believe, is a contributing factor to TMJ problems. Another problem of worn-down teeth is that it eventually exposes the underlying tooth structures. When that happens, teeth will stain rapidly. Bleaching is just temporarily solution, as stains now have a much easier way of getting inside the teeth.
If you are considering to enhance your appearance via a Smile Makeover, it is important to have realistic expectations. Having said that, patients often find that they have set their expectations too low and are therefore delightfully surprised with the results. The most important consideration is the expertise of the cosmetic dental team. It starts with a knowledgeable cosmetic dentist, whose artistic capabilities take into account the patient's facial features when designing a new smile. A ceramist who can reproduce what the dentist has envisioned is important, too.
There are cases where a smile makeover has been done on a patient without first properly assessing the situation or envisioning the final result. this can bring about unsatisfactory results, which can frustrate the patient. At Buhain Dental Center, we undergo a thorough process in planning and executing the treatment, in order to not only preview and envision the final result, but also create a blueprint that drives the process to a successful completion.
