Transformations in Cosmetic Dentistry
The smile makeovers shown here were created by cosmetic dentist of San Francisco, Dr. Jorg-Peter Rabanus. He is accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Most dental conditions shown here were corrected with porcelain veneers. The term "instant orthodontics" indicates that the correction of a smile with these thin ceramic shells commonly only takes a few weeks. This term is carried beyond its common usage: teeth are not just visually aligned, but also individually transformed, leading to a more harmonic and beautiful smile. Many aspects of individual tooth aesthetics, such as Halo effect, developmental lobes and grooves, incisal translucencies, to name just a few, are discussed elsewhere in this website.
The establishment of thedurability of a smile design with veneers and many smile design cases are discussed. The elements that contribute to the natural appearance of smile makeovers are explained. From time to time, we add before-and-after images of recent smile makeovers. It is our hope that the visitor of this website will obtain a better idea about the solutions that a cosmetic dentist might be able to offer. Whether you live in San Francisco or beyond, you might have aspects to discuss when visiting the cosmetic dentist of your choice.
There are many treatment options in cosmetic dentistry. It includes cosmetic gum surgery, such as gum lifts, which may be indispensable to attain a harmonious result for some patients. Another patient may need all available applications of the aesthetic aspects of modern dental treatment that are described in this website. The age of patients who seek a smile makeover steadily increases. This means that the dentitions that are being enhanced for new smiles are commonly more worn and discolored. The wear factor is a very important one. It is a sign of aging. The cosmetic dentist understands that a perfect smile is not just a set of pretty teeth but is also holistically integrated into all functional aspects of the masticatory system and the face. The more years a patient spent developing the functional slopes and wear patterns on his or her teeth, the more critical it is to functionally integrate the new youthful smile into these developed dynamics and dental pathways. Aesthetic-dentistry goes into deep detail about what needs to be considered when designing a new smile for the aging dentition.
All smile makeovers that are shown in this website were performed by cosmetic dentist Dr. Jorg-Peter Rabanus who practices in San Francisco. His main interests are smile makeovers and comprehensive dental rehabilitation. This includes a careful analysis of the biomechanics and physiological as well as pathological functional patterns of each individual dental patient.
