Function or Aesthetics? Both.
Posted on April 10, 2015 | By admin
Traditionally the focus of dentistry has been on biological care such as cavities, gum disease and overall oral health. Treatment planning was solely based on these factors and aesthetics was the very last factor, often being not a factor at all. With the new generation of dentistry there is a new shift towards balancing health, function and beauty. A beautiful smile today is more important than in the past few decades as people pay more and more attention to their appearances alongside social influences. Dentists now have more capabilities to create the best smile possible for patients without neglecting function.
