Cosmetic dentistry .....deals with that wonderful and  important 
PHYSICAL part of  you that is NOT listed in any of the anatomy books... your smile !

 

 

.....and Cosmetic Dentistry is a blending of art and science to enhance nature.... by doing  quality , attractive-looking dentistry in a way that looks natural .   It often improves  one's  attractiveness through techniques such as bonding, bleaching, veneers, caps, implants and more.  Cosmetic dentistry can   be like "instant orthodontics" in correcting  crooked, twisted or misplaced teeth in many instances.  Dark or misshapen teeth can be restored by cosmetic dentistry.   Smiles that lack youthful vigor or beauty can be revitalized ! See Topics / Info  for more info on these Cosmetic dentistry techniques and many other related topics.

But.... Cosmetic dentistry... is more than just a  bunch of techniques...it is a blending of artistry and science to enhance nature where it has been worn out or damaged or has naturally developed less than ideally.  It is about  recognizing and recreating the natural beauty and harmony that is universally experienced as "attractive" in distinctly male forms  as well as in female forms ...AND understanding the  differences between the two. It deals a lot with the  subjective and objective   attributes of "sex appeal" at least in the area of the  mouth, lips, and teeth...that wonderful and immensely important  part of us that is not listed in any of the anatomy books....the smile!!!!!!

Quality Cosmetic dentistry is modern dentistry at its best Functional and attractive and going beyond the necessary "fixing " things...to the optional of "enhancing" them.  Sometimes it is about giving yourself a gift!....A boost! .... doing something nice for yourself, beyond   the  basic necessities.

Bleaching, veneers, bonding, caps, bridges, and implants  are all techniques that are   discussed in the  Cosmetic Dentistry sections in Topics/Info, and there's more...

Holism in dentistry :  is an approach to dental treatment, primarily  caring for  patients' health and safety from both a conventional as well as  "alternative healthcare" point of view.  It is sometimes called "biological" dentistry or "biocompatible" dentistry.  In it's fullest sense, I believe it   acknowledges and deals with  the your mind, body and spirit, not just your "teeth".  See Topics / Info.....

In biologically-friendly, mercury-free dentistry there is an effort  to find  biocompatible materials to use to reduce toxicity for  everyone, especially the chemically sensitive.  Amalgam use is avoided  (" amalgam free" or "mercury free") due to concern about possible toxicity problems.  Amalgam removal  and replacement with natural-looking bonded materials is a common  treatment as well as a common aesthetic or cosmetic dentistry  treatment. Many feel the mercury/amalgam is not only potentially bad for teeth and for the human body in general, but it looks awful and unnatural , too.   Root canal treatment is especially controversial  in holistically oriented dentistry and the way we have modified it to address these concerns is discussed in several  different articles listed under Topics/Info. All these issues and more are discussed under Topics/Info.  And much more....
