If you think that the idea of improving the appearance of one’s teeth is an invention of the modern age, think again. The Etruscans who lived about 700 years ago used ivory and bone to create dentures that replace missing teeth. These people also used gold for fillings and crowns.
A cosmetic dentist is trained to perform restorative dental procedures without damaging your teeth. If they feel that a specific procedure will cause you more harm than good, they will refuse to perform it.
Patients need to check if their dental insurance covers their cosmetic dental procedure. Keep in mind that getting cosmetic work done now will help prevent the occurrence of dental and oral issues that may need costly treatment later on down the road.
To become a full-fledged cosmetic dentist, additional training on performing cosmetic dental procedures must be completed. Aside from this, continuing education courses must be taken to keep up with the latest technology.
Did you know that aside from improving your teeth’s appearance, a cosmetic dentist can also correct minor malocclusions and repair damaged teeth as well? For instance, dental bonding treatments can protect teeth that are overly sensitive as much as it protects chipped or cracked teeth.
