BEAUTIFUL SMILES NOT AGE DEPENDENT
BEAUTIFUL SMILES ARE NOT AGE DEPENDENT
We recently read an article in the LVI Visions Magazine January-April 2010 Issue about a women who kept improving her smile through life. The entire article complete with photos can be seen in that issue on pages 38-42. In summary, the author had a long term patient he had acquired when he took over a dental practice. The women had custom whitening trays made to enhance her smile when she was 81 years old in 1989. In 1992, she became concerned about the spaces between her teeth and she wanted those spaces closed. So at age 84, the dentist fixed all of the spaces between her teeth with direct resin bonding. These lasted until recently when she turned 100 years old and the resin wear and stain had been fixed several times when she made her regular hygiene visits. At this time, the dentist did porcelain veneers on her upper teeth, numbers 6-10. She became one of the oldest if not the oldest person to receive a beautiful new smile using porcelain veneers. The photos of the work are great and the lady has a gorgious smile that makes her look many years younger than she is. We have given many new smiles using Seattle Porcelain Veneers, but we have never given a new smile to anyone at the age of 100 years old. We look forward to that event in our future.
Direct resin bonding is a technique that we use in our Bellevue Cosmetic Dentistry in many situations to fix chipped teeth and to close diastema spaces. Bonding as a restorative mechanism to fix teeth is very effective method of giving people attractive smiles without the expense of porcelain veneers. Bellevue Dental Veneers are able to change anyone's unattractive smile into a beautiful work of art that will be the ultimate beauty accessory. The beautiful smile that can be attained by any of these techniques is truely amazing but is commonly done with today's modern Bellevue Dentist Techniques.
