Functional aesthetic dentistry is a tailored and strategic response to a complex dentistry problem.
While cosmetic dentistry is concerned with individual procedures such as teeth whitening or porcelain veneers to enhance a patient’s appearance, functional aesthetic dentistry focuses on complete rehabilitation of the mouth. It provides a treatment plan for a whole mouth makeover!
The dentist uses a combination of procedures to address different elements of the patient’s smile that need attention. For example, the patient may require dental implants for missing teeth;porcelain crowns and veneers for damaged teeth; and root canal treatment for problematic teeth.
Functional aesthetic dentistry offers a step-by-step approach that provides a transformative solution for complex problems.
It’s really important to consider the interplay between mechanics, dental health and lifestyle factors to determine the best course of action for patients.
