THE POWER OF IMAGERY IN CREATING EXCEPTIONAL PATIENT EXPERIENCES

Dentists have a marketing problem: people understand that oral care is valuable to their health and well-being, but they are often afraid to visit dental offices. Drills, picks, knives, and scary-looking machines can lead to fear and anxiety, so practitioners need to be proactive about transforming their offices into more calming environments. Major patient care advances have been made in medicine,…

DENTAL SEALANTS

Brushing and flossing are the best ways to help prevent cavities, but it’s not always easy to clean every nook and cranny of your teeth – especially those back teeth which are rough, uneven and a favorite place for leftover food and cavity-causing bacteria to hide. Still, there’s another safety net to help keep those teeth clean. It’s called a sealant,…

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TOOTHBRUSHES

There have been multiple studies comparing the effectiveness of manual brushes as opposed to electric brushes. Although not all electric brushes are the same, these studies conclude that in general electric brushes are more efficient in controlling plaque than manual brushes. Theoretically, you can do a very good brushing with a regular hand brush, but the movements of an electric…

PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY

Even though children often seem as just small adults, their patience and cooperation can be largely compromised during a dental exam. Pediatric dentists are specifically trained to know how to examine and treat children in ways that make their experience at the dental office relaxing and fun. This is often achieved by special office equipment and decoration which is designed with children in mind. A pediatric…

COSMETIC ENHANCEMENTS AT THE DENTIST

Long before Botox injections were used for cosmetic treatments, they were used for medical purposes. As a therapeutic tool, Botox is an essential part of dental implant therapy and TMJ treatment. Sometimes Botox can also be used by dentists to augment dental procedures designed to improve the appearance. Injections of Botox, for example, can lift the corners of the mouth…

PERFECT SMILE

A perfect smile is as unique as the person that it belongs to, so achieving the perfect smile requires personalized attention, an understanding of facial and dental aesthetics and the ability to design and create it.

My World of Esthetics. Philosophy

Beauty is defined as:

“A combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.”

The natural law of beauty, also known as“the golden proportion”, has fascinated the world for over 2,000 years. This golden proportion uses ratios of length and width, and has served as a formula in all disciplines, from mathematics and science, to art and design.It should be of no surprise that the golden proportion is also an integral component in creating the perfect smile.

Not all facial features contribute equally to the perception of beauty. When it comes to facial attractiveness, there are specific features and factors that guide our assessment of beauty; the five predominant ones include the nose, eyes, lips, smile, and teeth, with beautiful teeth topping the list of most desired physical traits.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that beholder is you. It is subjective – it is about how you want to look and how you want to feel. At Boston Dental, the principles of our smile design concept focus on 
more than just teeth—we define your beauty by balancing all the elements of the face 
and how they work together to 
achieve your idea of the most beautiful and 
natural smile.

“Love of beauty is taste, the creation of beauty is art.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson.
