- What are the current trends in cosmetic dentistry?
The dental industry is growing at a rapid pace. Nowadays, more and more patients are turning to cosmetic dental treatments as a way of improving their appearance. There are a variety of procedures available to patients who want to achieve a healthier, more attractive-looking smile. These include teeth whitening treatments, dental implants, digital smile design, veneers, gum reshaping and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.
What we are also seeing more and more is the collective input of multi-disciplinary teams of specialists; plastic surgeons, dentists and dermatologists working together in unified clinics.
One of the major trends that we are currently seeing worldwide is the use of edelweiss VENEERs. These veneers provide a youthful smile with the least amount of destruction to the tooth structure. This is the major shift in our thinking in cosmetic dentistry i.e. minimally invasive aesthetic procedures whereby we preserve as much tooth structure as possible but at the same give the patient a beautiful smile.
- What advice would you give to someone wanting a smile makeover on a small budget?
What was once only accessible to the fabulously rich and famous has become mainstream and sought after like a new hairstyle. While many cosmetic treatment options are awfully expensive, edelweiss dentistry provides an opportunity to give patients a younger looking appearance at the fraction of the cost when compared to other procedures that are currently available on the market. The edelweiss VENEER System is designed to give you a natural youthful looking smile the same day. There is no more a need for patients to wait up to a few weeks to have their smile redesigned. With edelweiss dentistry the veneers are placed on the same day, saving the patient time and money.
The edelweiss VENEERs are prefabricated and placed directly onto the teeth, with no damage to the patient’s own dental enamel, and unlike other veneers edelweiss can be later removed leaving being the patients original tooth intact. This saves exorbitant laboratory costs which translates to a big saving for the patient.
- How can we all take better care of our teeth?
Traditional tooth brushing, use of floss and mouthwashes is fundamental for proper oral hygiene. Also important is regular visits to the dentists for check-ups and oral hygiene prophylactic procedures. If you choose edelweiss VENEERs on your teeth you have the advantage in that the edelweiss VENEERs are made of hybrid glass. This ensures they maintain a long-lasting shine and does not take up stains caused by coffee or tobacco.
Apart from making ones smile fabulous, edelweiss VENEERs also plays a role in protecting ones original teeth from damage and decay, so it not only immediately improves ones Smile but it also protects ones teeth from future damage also.
- What are the benefits of good oral hygiene?
As the old saying goes, prevention is better than the cure, and this is true to maintaining good oral health. Daily oral hygiene practices and regular visits to your dentists will ensure that any slight or insidious disease processes will be corrected early. This saves further destruction of the tooth structure as well as expensive tooth fillings. This is fundamentally what I’d also different about edelweiss VENEERs, they doing just repair your teeth, they also protect and prevent them from any further ageing and future damage.
- What is a digital smile? And why do cosmetic dentists use it?
Digital photographs of the patients teeth together with special smile design software provide computer smile imaging that enables both the dentist and the patient to preview the end result before actually starting the dental procedure. Using the computer software, the dentist designs the patients smile according to personal needs. Once both patient and dentist are happy with the final design images, the procedure is then completed.
The edelweiss VENEERs are designed in such a way that it conforms to the natural golden proportion as nature intended to be. This enables the clinician to design the smile very easily that will then conform to the patients natural appearance.
The final result with the edelweiss VENEER is a whiter, brighter, yet more natural smile that is made to fit the individual’s facial features, bone structure, and skin tone.
