People take great pride in the condition and appearance of their teeth. Particularly in the west, teeth are considered both a signifier of our general good health as well as a sign of how well people take care of ourselves. Arguably, like quality clothing and certain possessions, healthy-looking teeth are a sign of high social and economic status.
For all these reasons, patients in the US are willing to put a great deal of time and expense into the care of their teeth. But what if having healthy teeth isn’t enough?
This is where the art and science of cosmetic dentistry comes in. Cosmetic dentistry is a multi-billion dollar industry that continues to grow and evolve. With all this demand, the technology behind it is growing by the day, as well as an understanding of the positive effects of a healthy smile.
But cosmetic dentistry isn’t all superficial. Orthodontists can also use the tools of their trade and advanced technologies to repair the teeth of those who have suffered accidents, infections, or other hardships which can damage a person’s teeth, gums, and facial structure.
In an upcoming episode of “On Demand” with host Rob Lowe, the program will discuss the history, uses, and the possible future of cosmetic dentistry.
