We’ve come a long way from the days when dentistry was still in its infancy, where the closest many people got to a real dentist would have been a back street dentist whose only proof of qualification was his word. But now dental work is widely cosmetic as well as simply practical.
Still, the question begs, what technology and treatments are out there? The sheer amount of available options can sometimes be daunting, especially if it’s your first foray into dental cosmetics, purely because of the variety of different work that can be done.
Changes and improvements don’t just need to be seen in the dental room for there to be a noticeable difference in how dental work is carried out. Things we all take for granted in everyday life, such as the internet and digital photography, have become a great boon for dentists, allowing the contact waiting time with dental labs to be greatly shortened.
Improvements have also been made to equipment and, because of these changes, the technique and treatment used has changed, making cosmetic dentistry more appealing and accessible to the everyday patient. These advances have largely removed the chance and risk of pain from many procedures.
While many dental cosmetic treatments are not exactly new, the procedure and technology involved in them are being improved and changed every day.
Something as simple as braces, which just a few years ago were the only real option for anyone with crooked teeth, now have new and improved alternatives such as Invisalign. This treatment is arguably the most popular option now and is barely visible once it is implemented into the mouth. It works in a similar way to conventional braces, but it is not fixed. The aligners are changed every two weeks and is available in a range of plans, spanning from short term, minimal work to Invisalign braces specifically designed for teenagers.
Cosmetic dentistry is moving forward with the modern world and there is very little reason or excuse for anyone who has been thinking of taking this route not to seriously consider embarking on treatment.
