Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dental Surgery Phenomenon
White, shiny teeth A beautiful radiant smileWhite, shiny teeth. A beautiful radiant smile. A straight set of gorgeous pearly whites. These are just some of the effects of cosmetic dental surgery. There was once a time when people don?t care two hoots about their mouth and teeth. As long as the outside looks good, there is no reason to expose or show the inner sanctuaries of their mouth. But not anymore. With the introduction of cosmetic dental surgery to the public through hit show like Extreme Makeover and news of celebrities getting cosmetic dental surgery, cosmetic dental surgery has gained popularity and the demand for it has gone up. More people are consulting their dentists regarding these aesthetic works and more are willing to fork out huge amounts of money to correct their smile.
Many have seen the effects of cosmetic dental surgery on television and have been inspired by it. Where they would have thought before that their teeth and mouth can?t be changed and will remain the way it is, now they know that wonders could be done to it. In fact they would look younger and better with the proper cosmetic works done! And it is not surprising that more dental offices now combine cosmetic dental surgery with plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery to give that holistic approach.
Cosmetic dental surgery being an aesthetic procedure is certainly not cheap though the effects to some are worth the money paid for it. Porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns and bridges, on lays and inlays are just some of the prosthesis used in cosmetic dental surgery. Take the fictitious example of Anna. Anna is 31 and has slightly crooked teeth and she has yellow teeth too. She decides to go for cosmetic dental surgery to correct them. The dental surgeon recommends either braces to correct her crooked teeth and teeth whitening for her yellow teeth or porcelain veneers to mask the crooked and yellow teeth. Anna decides to go for the porcelain veneers as she doesn?t have to endure two years of braces and she wants a quick solution. Now lets take a look at Sebastian. He has gaps in between his front teeth and he is often teased about it. He is tired of the teasing and wants something done. He goes to see a dentist and gets composite resin placed on his front teeth to correct the gaps. These are just a few examples of cosmetic dental surgery and its application in real life.
But cosmetic dental surgery is not all straightforward rosy and bright. They do carry their own risks and complications. Take the example of the porcelain veneers and composite resins. These are placed on your teeth and if not cleaned properly can contribute to decay and cause the loss of your teeth. Henceforth it is imperative that proper responsible care be taken to look after them. And regular reviews to see the dentist is also a must to ensure that any problems are detected early and remedied. And tooth sensitivity after bleaching or whitening is quite common and these post procedure effects must be understood. The effects may also not be permanent and along the way may need retreatment or replacement of the prosthesis.
Before you make up your mind to make that trip to the dentist and ask for cosmetic dental surgery, you must have a few issues straightened out in your mind first. The first is of course if you really need it. Then you have to ask yourself the next important question and that is ?Can you afford it and the reviews afterwards??. If you answer yes to these questions you are most probably prepared to undergo cosmetic dental surgery.
But having said these, the benefits can outweigh the risks with the proper care and reviews. And you can be the proud owner of a beautiful, radiant smile for a very long time. Having a gorgeous straight set of pearly whites can give your ego and confidence a great boost and many patients have reported an improvement in health and work performance due to their new found self confidence. In fact they are often a very much improved version of their previous self and enjoy a happier work, social and marriage life.
