Beverly Hills Cosmetic Dentist on Choosing the Right Practice
According to a recent survey by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), the number of porcelain veneers procedures has increased by 250% in the past five years. The AACD also reports in a similar study that only 50% of people are satisfied with their smile. As more and more patients continue to pursue cosmetic enhancements such as porcelain veneers, Beverly Hills dentist Dr. Kevin Sands says finding a cosmetic dentistry practice focused on a patient’s individual needs is essential for achieving the best results. Dr. Sands discusses reasons for the increase in procedures performed and how to select a quality cosmetic dentist for treatment.
At his Beverly Hills cosmetic dentistry practice, Dr. Kevin Sands says porcelain veneers have become an increasingly popular option for cosmetic enhancement amongst his patients, an observation reflected by statistics from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), which state procedures have risen 250% in the last five years. The procedure is designed to enhance the appearance of one’s teeth by altering shape, length, color, or size with the application of a wafer-thin porcelain shell to the front surface of teeth. Dr. Sands says porcelain veneers can be an effective treatment for teeth that are discolored, chipped or broken, or unevenly spaced. “In combination with a premier dentist and dental lab, porcelain veneers give patients an unparalleled opportunity to acquire their ideal smile while preserving their natural tooth structure.”
Combined with teeth whitening and direct bonding procedures, Dr. Sands says porcelain veneers in Beverly Hills have experienced a surge in media attention pushing a more cosmetically-centered oral appearance. With such an emphasis being placed on dental aesthetics, he adds that patients should take extreme care to select an experienced and dedicated cosmetic dentist for any kind of treatment. By choosing a dentist who is qualified and passionate about personalized care, Dr. Sands says patients can arrange a treatment that is custom-tailored to their dental needs, and one that can help them attain the highest level of satisfaction.
Whether patients are seeking porcelain veneers or procedures such as Invisalign® clear teeth aligners, Dr. Sands recommends extensively researching a dentist’s credentials and all cosmetic dental options before undergoing a procedure. “When considering porcelain veneers, patients should seek a dentist with proven results. In addition to training and experience, quality before-and-after photos are a great way for a patient to observe the dentist’s ability to create gorgeous smiles that are also very natural looking.”
