FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
AACD Announces Most Sought-After Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Veneers, cosmetic bonding and dental implants among this year’s top interests
MADISON, Wis. (August 12, 2014)— The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), today announced veneers, direct bonding and dental implants as three of the most popular* cosmetic dentistry procedures among people looking to improve their smile.
“Teeth whitening is still the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure, but we’re seeing an increased number of patients interested in porcelain veneers, bonding and dental implants,” said AACD President Dr. James Hastings. “People want to look like they were born with their smile, not like they have purchased it. These procedures are among the easiest and most effective ways to conservatively restore and enhance one’s smile.”
Porcelain veneers, bonding and dental implants are popular, in part, because they are easily customized to create a beautiful smile that is unique to each individual. A skilled cosmetic dentist can adjust the shape and coloring of the work for each person, producing a result that enhances the entire smile.
Treatments such as whitening and short-term orthodontics continue to drive many to seek a cosmetic dentist, and AACD expects that more and more individuals will seek out similar options in coming years. These treatments are also increasingly popular because they are easily completed with minimal discomfort and can be incorporated into a broader treatment plan that includes other cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Dr. Chiann Gibson, AACD vice president, encourages anyone interested in cosmetic dentistry to seek out an AACD member dentist. “Having to correct a cosmetic treatment done by an unskilled or inexperienced dentist can be disheartening to the patient, as well as a financial burden. There is a standard of excellence AACD members, and especially AACD Accredited members, embrace in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry,” she said.
