Enhancement: Cosmetic dentistry
Dentistry is dealing with an ageing population that is keeping more of its natural teeth. Smiles reveal physical and aesthetic ageing signs. Cosmetic dentistry advancements now provide the dental profession with new opportunities in conservative and aesthetic restorative procedures that have the potential to reverse the signs of dental ageing, making patients appear younger. The ability to make patients look younger through cosmetic enhancement of teeth and smiles has tremendous implications for the future practise of dentistry. Dentists with the training and skills to meet the growing demand for aesthetic procedures by patients seeking to restore a youthful appearance may find an expanded role for this type of treatment within their practises.
