An attractive smile ranks higher than weight loss for most Americans seeking to reverse aging flaws, according to a 2012 report by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
At Biltmore Dental Center in Phoenix, Dr. Sameet Koppikar has made cosmetic reconstructive dentistry a cornerstone of his practice, rejuvenating the smiles of thousands of satisfied patients by restoring the function, health, and appearance of their teeth and gums.
The emotional boost of cosmetic dentistry often exceeds the esthetic appeal.
The Academy survey showed that 62 percent of American adults would invest in improving their teeth quality to offset the visual effects of growing older, versus 48 percent who would opt to pay for weight-loss assistance. They also ranked a smile as being more revealing of true age than eyes.
Not all parts of our body age uniformly. The lower section of our face, the mouth, jaw, and chin area, ages faster than the skin surrounding our eyes and forehead. Teeth that are missing or eroded, or a receding gum line from periodontal disease, can accelerate these effects, causing our lips and cheeks to sag and our chins to retract.
“Cosmetic dentistry” encompasses all procedures that improve teeth appearance. Dr. Koppikar offers cosmetic reconstructive dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening, white fillings, crowns, porcelain veneers, and gum re-contouring. All these procedures are performed in a relaxing office environment at Biltmore Dental Center. Dr. Koppikar has extensive advanced training in the latest cosmetic dentistry techniques and has received national recognition for his work.
The quality of your cosmetic dentistry extends beyond the expertise of the doctor. Biltmore Dental Center uses only the highest quality, metal-free and environmentally safe materials such as porcelain and composite resins. Lasers are used for gum contouring instead of a scalpel, to provide faster results with minimal post-op discomfort.
Cosmetic dental treatments continually evolve and are much more affordable than you may think. You owe it to yourself to recapture that youthful, confident smile. Look in the mirror and decide what it is about your smile you would like to change.
