Cosmetic Dentistry Then and Now
The 1990s were coined “The Golden Age of Dentistry”. Materials and techniques advanced significantly and patient’s interest and attitudes toward dentistry changed as procedures became more attractive than the preceding generation of dentistry. The days of ugly metal restorations made way for bonded, tooth colored materials. As this material technology and knowledge integrated into many dental practices, some patients demanded esthetic solutions to address undesirable treatment results like metal fillings, gold dentistry, crowns with dark edges, and unattractive solutions for missing teeth. Many general dentists marketed themselves “Cosmetic Dentists” because of the ability to have visually pleasing results in routine treatment. Other dentists took the cosmetic movement to an extreme and treated the demand for beautiful smiles to another level differentiating into heavily self-promoted cosmetic practices that were exclusively geared toward the “extreme makeover” craze.
Modern Esthetic Restorative Care
Fast forward to today. Just making white, straight, and metal-free dentistry is not enough to meet patient expectations or for dentists to utilize the full potential of what is available. Today identifying as"Cosmetic" is falling out of favor amongst the best restorative dentists, with the term having the connotation problems are only coveredover rather than solved as health care (hence the term Esthetic Restoration now being favored). All dentists now use white materials with some not appreciating the technical difficultly of using them properly for lasting and esthetic results. “Cosmetic” is now only preserved in the profession as a marketing term. Unfortunately, many of the early high profile cosmetic boutiques lost their focus on dentistry as health care. Dr. Will Kelly provides dentistry with results that exceed patient's expectations for a "prettier" smile by focusing on esthetic criteria but also restoration of health. With more reliable, stronger bonded porcelain and composite materials, implants to replace missing teeth, and digital technologyesthetic dentistry is better than ever. Guided by ideal design principles and using best practices to meticulously treat the teeth, Dr. Kelly is able to provide results that mimic perfect natural teeth.
