This is Not Your Mother’s Smile: Cosmetic Dentistry in 2019A beautiful smile has been desirable for over two thousand years; evidence shows that the early Etruscans used fake teeth made of solid gold to replace missing teeth in a fashionable way. However, most of the cosmetic dentistry services you can receive today didn’t truly become safe and accessible until the last 100 years, and most hasn’t become widespread and mainstream until the last 25 years!

Faster Treatments

Today, people have come to expect fast service. With dental services, it’s no different. Traditional orthodontics which could take up to two years, are less popular with adult patients who want a faster (and less obvious) treatment method. Invisalign offers a discreet straightening solution, with average treatment time lasting just 12 months. For other patients, even faster straightening solutions have been developed, such as braces with take just six months to straighten some alignment issues. In addition, popular whitening treatments can be completed in just one appointment – or even at home, so the patient can whiten around their busy schedule. More and more, dentists are finding cosmetic solutions that work with their patients’ busy schedules and desire for faster results.

Less Invasive Treatment

Along with faster treatment, many advances in cosmetic dentistry in 2019 are helping to reduce the discomfort patients face during procedures. Advancements in veneers and dental adhesives, for example, now allow your Denver cosmetic dentist to remove considerably less enamel when placing porcelain veneers. This not only makes the procedure faster and more comfortable, but better maintains the strength and stability of the veneered teeth. In the same way, Invisalign offers teeth straightening solutions with fully-removable aligner trays. Patients can forego the wires and brackets which must be applied to each and every tooth.

Empowered Patients

Today, the internet provides a wealth of information on cosmetic dentistry services. The Google search “cosmetic dentistry procedures” alone has over 44 million results! One of the advantages of this easily-accessed information is that patients can discover the solutions that are out there and make more informed decisions regarding their treatment. Previously, patients had to only rely on their dentist to advise them on what procedure could be best for them. But when it comes to cosmetic dentistry and elective procedures, being able to research and view other local dentists’ work can help patients have peace of mind when they decide how to enhance their smile.
