Cosmetic Dentistry: Some of the Latest Trends

A Better Smile Brings Confidence – and Compassion

Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way, in a relatively short time. While the technical aspects are remarkable, perhaps the personal advantages are being celebrated most.

More and more people are realizing how cosmetic procedures (such as teeth-whitening, veneers, bonding, or dental implants) can help boost one’s self-confidence and self-esteem. And many are starting to notice how a brighter, whiter smile is also a way of sharing kindness and compassion with others.

Overall it seems that more people are learning how cosmetic dentistry can improve the look of your smile and also help address the underlying dental problems, improving teeth, gums, and oral health in general.

A Top Trend in Cosmetic Dentistry: It’s All About Color!

OK, we’re not talking rose gold grills, or whether chartreuse is the new onyx. We’re talking about impressive technology that allows your dentist to better match your original teeth, or whiten them with more natural-looking colors and contours.

Thanks to the latest trends and major advancements in tooth-colored restorations and whitening procedures, your smile can look even better, and more natural. And oftentimes, the latest procedures may show no signs of treatment at all. Indeed, fake-looking, shiny-colored smiles are becoming a thing of the past.

Whiter Teeth with Fewer Visits and Less Hassle

Of course, when it comes to a great-looking smile, whiter is better. Fortunately, the latest trends in cosmetic dentistry have helped make getting whiter teeth even easier – often with fewer visits and less hassles.

For example, dentist Dr. Carangelo, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) offers the latest Zoom! and KöR teeth-bleaching procedures, and he also provides easy, use-at-home solutions as well, which offer an ideal combination: cost-effective teeth‑whitening treatments with the guidance of a professional dentist.

And without getting into all the technical details, teeth-whitening is no longer a “one for all” procedure. Several options are now available. And Dr. Carangelo can provide custom teeth‑whitening and teeth-bleaching procedures that work best for different kinds of teeth.

Digital Dentistry

The most common cosmetic dentistry procedures haven’t changed much. According to the AACD, bonding, crowns and bridges, implants, veneers, and teeth-whitening are still the leading kinds of cosmetic dental procedures. However, the materials and techniques have changed dramatically.

And many of the procedures involved have gone digital. As with digital X‑rays, digital dentistry has evolved to CAD/CAM and CEREC technologies, allowing Dr. Carangelo to fabricate same‑day caps, crowns, and bridges.

Many dentists are going digital. And Dr. Carangelo and the staff at BayRidge Dental (serving the Rochester area in Webster, NY) have fully embraced the digital dentistry trend for general dentistry, and cosmetic dental services as well. BayRidge Dental is equipped with the latest dental technology to provide state-of-the-art cosmetic dental procedures – often with little discomfort, less hassle, and even better results.

The “Bigger” Trend in Cosmetic Dentistry

In many ways, Dr. Carangelo’s approach and use of the latest high-tech equipment indicates perhaps a bigger trend in cosmetic dentistry: providing the most popular cosmetic procedures, with better technology, for better patient care – and more spectacular smiles than ever before.
