Cosmetic Dentistry Trends

Dental And Skin Clinic Cosmetic Dentistry Charlotte M Bentleigh East, Bayside, Melbourne

We believe good cosmetic dentistry is not a trend. It’s not something that ever goes out of style. With that in mind, there are a few specific cosmetic dental trends we want to warn our patients about.

Cosmetic Dentistry Fads

Don’t widen a tooth gap for a “cuter” look.

Enamel reshaping can be a very legitimate procedure. If a tooth has a minor chip or is oddly shaped, enamel reshaping can help it match its neighbours. Enamel reshaping can also smooth out the little bumps (mamelons) on the ends of adult teeth if they aren’t wearing away on their own. But to widen a gap just to look cute, as happened on America’s Next Top Model? The (alleged) cosmetic appeal does not outweigh the potential damage to the teeth and how they fit together.

Don’t get vampire fangs.

It seems a different movie monster is popular every decade, but that doesn’t mean we should try to look like them. Changing the shape of your teeth to make them look like fangs is going to remove a lot of enamel, which won’t grow back.

Don’t get gems embedded in your teeth.

We all want sparkling smiles, but we don’t recommend taking that as literally as getting gems surgically implanted in your teeth. That’s a recipe for cavities and regret.
GENERALLY SPEAKING, INFLUENCERS are not a great source of health advice. One person’s experience with a technique or product is not going to be universal, and real understanding of the way the human body works comes from years of study and training, not a quick google search.
