Over time, the idea of beauty and fashion has changed. During the renaissance, being overweight was a sign of wealth, a comfortable lifestyle, and enviable beauty. During the 1920s, short hair on women was fashionable. During the 1980s, big hair, bright colors, and lots of spandex were all the rage for both males and females.
Through all the fashion fads and trends, however, one aspect has remained constant: a beautiful smile. Thankfully, thanks to modern technology, it’s easier than ever to achieve a beautiful smile, but even smile trends have changed over the years.
Known at the smile makeover procedure, porcelain veneers offer patients the most extensive smile makeover. In the past, porcelain veneers gave cosmetic dentistry patients perfect, flawless smiles. Although this offered dramatic results for patients looking to beautify their smiles, porcelain veneers quickly developed a bad reputation for looking unnatural, bulky, and fake.
In the past few years, however, veneers have undergone a reputation makeover. Now, cosmetic dentists are taking care to make sure that the new smiles of their porcelain veneer patients look natural, lifelike, and perfectly imperfect. To do this, Dr. James DeFinnis, a cosmetic dentist creating smiles for patients in the greater Wilkes Barre area, takes into account your natural tooth structure, your coloring, your dental and smile goals, your lifestyle, and your overall appearance when designing your smile makeover.
This ensures that your brand new smile will look natural, and that you’ll fall in love with it every time you look in the mirror. To reserve a cosmetic consultation with Dr. DeFinnis, call Back Mountain Dental in Trucksville, Pennsylvania at (570) 763-4360.
