Cosmetic dentistry is a true art and although the American Dental Association does not recognize it as a specialty, it does take skill, knowledge, and experience.
Unless your cosmetic dentist is an Accredited Member or an Accredited Fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, he or she probably doesn’t have the training for cosmetic dentistry much less porcelain veneers placement.
Both porcelain veneers and cosmetic dental crowns take skill. If the tooth isn’t prepared properly or too much enamel is removed for a veneer, it could alter your entire treatment. Even if the tooth was prepared properly, there is still color matching and materials to consider.
Dr. Jack Ringer, past President and an Accredited Fellow with the America Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry has surpassed general dentistry taking continued education several steps further. For more than 30 years, Dental Cosmetics of Anaheim Hills have continued to add services to the list of cosmetic dentistry specialties including porcelain veneers and cosmetic dental crowns.
Dentists that become accredited with the AACD are the best in the world. Both accredited Members and Accredited Fellows are required to complete credentialing programs demonstrating exceptional clinical skills.
Dentists who become Fellows with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry have taken CE one-step further becoming one of the few Accredited Fellows in the world. Dr. Ringer is one of those doctors.
One of the biggest issues dentists face is color matching. Although it may seem like a simple task considering how advanced cosmetic dentistry is, it really isn’t.
Patients who opt for one of two porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental crowns will need those matched to the rest of their smile. If you have natural teeth or older restorations, exact color matching is essential.
Porcelain veneers and cosmetic dental crowns do the same thing, but are different at the same time. Your OC cosmetic dentist explains that porcelain veneers cover the fronts of your teeth while a cosmetic dental crown fits over your entire tooth.
Patients with minimal staining or damage are perfect candidates for porcelain veneers while people with severe cracks and chips would be more suitable for cosmetic dental crowns. Just remember if you are hard on your teeth cosmetic dental crowns may be a better match.
If you follow the Dental Cosmetics of Anaheim Hills Blog, you will understand how important a cosmetic dentist is to the beauty and health of your smile. Badly placed veneers or a dental crown that is too big will cause issues for the rest of your teeth and your gums.
You may be tempted to ask your general dentist to place porcelain veneers, but don’t do it. If he or she shows reluctance and wants to refer you to a cosmetic dentist in Orange County, do it.
