Throughout the last hundred years of human society professions have come and gone. One hundred or so years ago professions like blacksmiths cobblers still existed, making their money by providing a service that people still needed. Today, these jobs are done by machines and are completed in a much different way than they were in 1900. Thousands of professions have gone the way of the blacksmith in the past century, but many new professions have popped up in their place. All of the jobs having to do with the Internet, technology, the making of cars, the production of high-tech appliances and so much more were created in the past several decades. These jobs don’t require the manual labor that being a blacksmith did and they pay a higher wage, thus increasing the life expectancy of those people performing them.
One of the jobs that wasn’t truly around a hundred years ago that is thriving today is the profession of the cosmetic dentist. Even a couple of centuries ago dentists existed. Typically they were just medical doctors that would perform rudimentary dental services when their patients needed them, such as pulling a tooth or helping them clean their teeth. Today, however, cosmetic dentistry has grown into a multi-million dollar industry, serving people all across the country.
The main reason why cosmetic dentistry has become so popular and is showing no signs of slowing down is that people truly want to look their best at all times. One of the first things that people notice when they are meeting someone is their teeth. The eyes of people are drawn to the mouth of the other individual. Thus, a great looking smile is one of the best ways to ensure that you nail a job interview or that you’re perceived by the people you meet as being friendly. When you think about how often people use their smiles in their daily lives, it becomes quite clear that people would want them to look as great as possible. Unfortunately, through luck, genetics or bad habits many people end up with stained, missing or damaged teeth. They might have lost a tooth playing sports or the fluoride in the water may have stained them; whatever the cause, many people don’t have the perfect, bright white smiles that they would like. Thus, they turn to cosmetic dentists to help them get it. Cosmetic dentists are able to pull teeth and replace them with dental implants, are able to place veneers over damaged teeth so they look as good as new, are able to clean teeth and are even able to whiten them. In short, they are able to help people refresh their smiles.
The things that cosmetic dentists do, while aimed at making the smile more aesthetically pleasing, also improve the oral health of the individual they are working on. Not only does the smile look better but it actually is better. If you’re considering having some cosmetic dental work done, set up an appointment with DeVaney Dentistry.
