peoples knew how important it was to take care of their teeth, using
sticks as toothbrushes. These early people didn’t like missing
teeth either. The Etruscans made the first dentures 2,700 years ago
from human or animal teeth, ivory or bone. Centuries later, gold was
used to make the first crowns and bridges. Other cultures developed a
variety of dental procedures over the centuries, but modern cosmetic
dentistry did not make an appearance until the 1990s.
dentistry offers a number of social and health benefits, including:
* The Smile! People with stained, discolored teeth often feel
ashamed and awkward in social situations. Teeth whitening is a
solution to stained teeth that has worked well for countless users.

that a great smile is a plus in interviews and could help land that
* Achieving that movie star smile often motivates someone to
focus more on maintaining healthy teeth and gums. In addition to
practicing improved dental hygiene, people may implement other
beneficial lifestyle changes, such as eating healthier and quitting
* Crooked teeth can cause chronic pain that can be
misdiagnosed as a migraine or severe headache. When the misalignment
is corrected and the bite improved, the person normally feels much
better. Invisalign braces are clear, easy to use and a great
improvement over the steel and wire braces of the past.
* Veneers, porcelain crowns and tooth-colored fillings are
solutions for correcting teeth that are decayed or broken while
giving the appearance of a natural tooth. They can also be used to
fill spaces between teeth.
* Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. The
implant is the ‘root’ and is covered by a porcelain crown. It
looks and functions as a natural tooth.
