Dr. Jeff Martin: Living Proof of the Results of Cosmetic Dentistry !
Nine years ago, while flipping through the photos from their daughter’s wedding, Dr. Martin’s wife noticed something really embarrassing–her husband’s front teeth were two different colors! And he’s a dentist! “Jeff”, she said as gently as possible, “you need to get your teeth fixed!” Dr. Jeff Martin had broken one tooth as a kid and another as an adult. Although he eventually had them repaired, the old bonding material had discolored giving him a multicolored smile! His teeth, of course, were very healthy and well cared for, but a discolored tooth can just look bad. Dr. Martin knew it was time for him to put his money where his mouth is, so to speak, and see a Tucson Cosmetic Dentist.
“I Just Don’t Like How My Teeth Look”
Sometimes, as was the case for Dr. Martin, cosmetic dentistry is only to make someone’s smile more beautiful. There is no dental issue to be addressed other than aesthetics. Dr. Martin stated he has had some folks that just don’t like the shape or shade of their teeth. There was nothing really wrong with the teeth except that the patient didn’t like the way they looked. Dr. Martin himself experienced that; after getting his front teeth fixed, his confidence increased and he found himself smiling more. He has since had his remaining gold crowns replaced with porcelain crowns by his partner and son-in-law, Dr. Will Taylor.
Function and Beauty Combined
However, as Dr. Martin explains, much functional dental work can now be done in such a way to make it visually pleasing as well. For example, fillings can match the teeth instead of being silver. There are also times when remarkable results can be achieved not only in the look of the teeth but also in someone’s over all dental health. Repairing a fractured tooth by replacing it with a porcelain crown addresses a serious dental issue and at the same time improves the look of the patient.
So if you’re not pleased with how your teeth look, ask Dr. Martin to give you a big ol’ grin. He’ll happily show you how a Tucson cosmetic dentist such as Dr. Taylor or himself can improve your smile and then work with you to achieve the look you’ve always wanted!
