The goal of a brilliantly white, perfectly straight, and consistently uniform smile used to be the driving factor behind people seeking cosmetic dentistry treatments like porcelain veneers. Now, however, more and more people are wanting a smile that looks attractive but unenhanced – and leading this charge are celebrities who had previously sought unblemished smile perfection.
According to an article in the Hollywood Reporter, several stars, including Joaquin Phoenix, Tom Hanks, and Pink, are returning to cosmetic dentists to have their previously perfect smiles intentionally unperfected, helping to produce a more natural and life-like appearance. Gone are the days of uniformly sized and colored veneers, as celebrities and every-day folk alike start to find beauty in human imperfection.
Perhaps an extension of the growing body positivity movement, a healthy and natural-looking smile is now more desirable than ever, and cosmetic dentistry is the perfect thing to help you achieve both.
Producing Life-Like Cosmetic Restorations
One of the primary goals of cosmetic dentistry is to address issues that are distracting or those that make the smile looked unsightly. Several issues, while naturally occurring, can still combine to produce a smile that is unattractive, requiring cosmetic services to restore a more appealing look.
Issues that can be addressed by cosmetic dentistry include:
- Missing teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken enamel
- Crooked tooth presentation
- Unusual tooth shapes of sizes
- Large gaps in between teeth
- Severe tooth discoloration
To address these issues, Houston cosmetic dentist Dr. Ronald Konig offers a range of treatment options, many of which can be combined for a complete smile makeover without producing an overly-done or false appearance.
Dr. Konig works with master ceramists who use advanced techniques to produce veneers and crowns that are completely natural looking. Shaded and shaped to mimic nature and designed individually for personalized results, these restorations look and feel like natural teeth and do not produce a “chicklet” or unbelievably uniform appearance.
When planning cosmetic restorations, Dr. Konig takes time to ensure each one is color-matched, sized, and shaped to fit your smile. In the rare case that restorations do not meet his exacting standards, he will send them back to have new ones fabricated, helping to ensure you achieve the best results.
During your initial consultation at our Houston office, Dr. Konig will answer all of your questions and discuss all of the options that you have for the perfection of your smile.
