Trends in Cosmetic Dentistry
Trends. They occur in every industry, from fashion to food to, yes, dentistry. Today, we are seeing a surge of interest in cosmetic dental treatments, which reflects the widespread desire for aesthetic beauty. In one survey by the Academy of General Dentistry, it was discovered that 96% of the American work force views the smile as an important asset to success. This goes even deeper. . .
Without even realizing it, those who were polled by the AGD probably responded the way they did because there is an innate understanding that smile equals character. Psychological studies have demonstrated that an attractive smile builds feelings of trust and reduces feelings of stress. The key word here is "attractive." This key word is what alerts us to the value of cosmetic dentistry. If your smile needs a bit of a boost, look no further than your Simi Valley Dentist Dr. Muradian. Our patients benefit from a wealth of experience in numerous cosmetic dental treatments.
The teeth whitening trend has been going on for a lot longer than you may imagine! Through archeological evidence and historical accounts, we can see the desire for bright, white teeth actually dates back several centuries. We are fortunate that the trial and error of our ancestors has led us to the safe, effective treatments we have today. Patients of Dr. Muradian can elect to enhance their smile with our powerful in-office treatment, which revives the smile in one hour, or they can choose our home-whitening treatment, which gets the same dazzling results over a week or two.
There are two forms of veneers, direct and indirect. Most people know of direct veneers as dental bonding. This process occurs over just one visit, during which a putty-like composite is applied, shaped, cured, and polished. Indirect veneers, which are usually made from quality porcelain, require two visits. The first is reserved for preparing teeth and taking impressions. The second visit is when we get to see the final results, and when the approved veneers are bonded to teeth.
Teeth whitening and veneers are two trending treatments that give people smiles they love. To learn more about cosmetic dentistry in our Simi Valley office, call (805) 522-0880.
