Cosmetic Dentistry – More Than A Pretty Smile
As a leading cosmetic dentist, Dr. Finlay underscores the fact that cosmetic dentistry is not just about making teeth look pretty. More importantly, cosmetic dentistry is about enhancing the form, function and health of the mouth.
The Ancient Greeks have taught us centuries ago that esthetics are no more than a mirror of the relative and perceived health of a biological system. It is only when the parameters of form, function and health are met that the results in cosmetic dentistry are truly beautiful and durable.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right For You?
Smile enhancement can range across the board from simple smile whitening to a complete smile makeover. Cosmetic dental concerns can be due to dental disease, trauma or congenital conditions. Regardless of the extent of these conditions, the impact of a smile on someone’s life can be as significant to the individual as to those around them.
“Growing up, I always hid my smile because people called me snaggletooth. Although this hurt my feelings, I was too apprehensive about going to the dentist. Dr. Finlay’s compassion and expert skills transformed my smile…look at me now.”
