How reconstructive dentistry combines science and art

aesthetic dentistYou may have heard someone describe something as “an art, not a science”, or as “a science, not an art.” That is a helpful distinction, but the lines between the two can blur more often than we think. For example, there are professions where science and art blend together. Some people excel in positions that require certified, scientific expertise and an acute sense of beauty. An aesthetic dentist is one such profession.

A prosthodontist specializes in the restoration and replacement of teeth and jaw structures through the use of artificial materials. At Reconstructive Dentistry, Dr. Farhad Vahidi provides associates who specialize in prosthodontics, and cosmetic dentistry and preventive dentistry. This team provides thorough dental care which improves oral health and appearance.

The Many Skills Of The Aesthetic Dentist

To get a better idea of what we do here at Reconstructive Dentistry, let’s take a look at the services provided. As you look at these, keep an eye out for the balancing act they perform between art and science.

  • Preventive care: Hygienists utilize the latest research and innovation in order to provide you with the care that will best prevent oral problems such as tooth decay, gum disease and a host of other issues. Let’s be honest: many people do not enjoy going to the dentist, and no one enjoys going to the dentist because of a problem. Ideally, you want to address the problem before it even arises.
  • Reconstructive dentistry: Sometimes reconstructive dentistry is the best option. There are many reasons why reconstructive surgery may be needed. There are situations in which a problem has persisted for too long and caused serious damage to the mouth. Other times, it’s just general wear and tear. No matter what the reason is, Drs. Farhad Vahidi and Mary Kang provide reconstructive dentistry, giving you a radiant smile.
  • Aesthetic care: Teeth are strong and resilient, but they can also yellow, chip and break. Likewise, teeth can grow in the wrong way, causing gaps and crooked alignment. This is where aesthetic dental care comes in to save the day. An aesthetic dentist, like Dr. Grace Kim, has a keen eye for how to make your smile bright and beautiful, and knows the best way to make it happen.

The aesthetic dentist utilizes the fact that a beautiful smile is a healthy smile. Hygiene and beauty encourage one another, and prosthodontists are experts at both.
