Having a nice set of teeth adds so much to the way a person looks and how they are perceived, not to mention how they feel. Nature and circumstances can sometimes leave us with an unfortunate looking set of chompers that may influence how we speak and the overall appearance affect the overall appearance of the face much the same as an accident can scar the face or cause teeth to break or be knocked out.
Dentistry has fortunately taken us past just preventing cavities and straightening teeth with braces to the fields of Prosthodontics and Aesthetic dentistry.
Aesthetic dentistry is the art of using dentistry to create healthy looking teeth and an improved smile. Aesthetic dentistry is not only about veneers and teeth whitening but is in fact the art of turning a shy grin into an impressive smile. It is the the focus of the aesthetic dentist to return not only your smile but also your confidence and self-esteem.
