Cosmetic dentistry is the art of transforming a person’s smile from one they are hesitant to show into one of their dreams. In today’s society, people are drawn to the beautiful and welcoming smiles seen in the media and hope to have the same. If you are not perfectly happy with your smile, you are not alone. Many cover their mouths when they laugh and hide their teeth when photographed. Fortunately though, an experienced cosmetic dentist can make dreams come true.

Honestly, as a cosmetic dentist in south Florida, I experience this every day. New patients enter my office for the first time, and they literally refuse to smile with their teeth showing. We sit down and discuss what embarrasses them. We work together to address all of these worries and begin to imagine their smile makeover. When treatment is completed, the very same people are looking for every opportunity to show their new smile.

However, people are often reluctant to meet with a cosmetic dentist because they are unfamiliar with potential treatment options. Furthermore, finding reliable information on the internet about aesthetic dentistry is challenging. So, I decided to write a series of articles (listed below) to help people learn more about possible cosmetic dental procedures.

About my experiences as a cosmetic dentist

While in college, I decided on a career in dentistry. At the time, working as a dentist seemed to be the perfect combination of art and science, two fields I always enjoyed. Twenty-five years later, I continue to love my profession. After attending and teaching at Tufts Dental School, I moved to south Florida with my wife Joanne and have been practicing in the Delray and Boynton Beach area ever since. Over the years, the advancements in aesthetic dentistry have been incredible. The technology has improved exponentially, and cosmetic dentistry has become my passion. With the materials available today, almost any smile makeover is possible. If you have any questions about cosmetic dentistry or would like to schedule a complimentary consultation, please feel free to contact us.
