Cosmetic Dentist in Tyler | Upgrading Your Smile

Just A Short Note On What You Can Do With Older Dental Work

Have you ever wondered what the options are for “upgrading” older or outdated dental work? In earlier dentistry, what is referred to as PFM (Porcelain Fused to Metal) crowns, were commonly used and in some cases were the only option for restorative cosmetic dentistry. Because of stronger porcelains that look more natural and aesthetic, the options for restoring a brighter more youthful smile is encouraging to a lot of patients with earlier dentistry. They are trading in their metal crowns for a more natural youthful smile, and what a huge difference it can make!

Movie Star Teeth

Having Those Movie Star Teeth:  Tyler, Texas

George Clooney SmileAfter seeing all of the beautiful people last night at the 2012 Academy Awards show, it is fun to realize that many of them have had some “help” to look as good as they do. And, if you noticed, they all have great big beautiful smiles.

This picture of George Clooney is from an article in the New York Daily News titled “Ill Grills: Celebrity Teeth Makeovers.” Speculation from Dr. Jonathan Abenaim, a dentist quoted in the article, states that George probably had to get his teeth done because he grinds them. You will notice in the “before” picture that Clooney’s teeth are small and worn down which happens when you grind them. So he had to get them lengthened with porcelain veneers and/or crowns plus a surgical gum procedure called “crown lengthening.”

I think we can all agree that it was worth it!
