Houston Cosmetic Dentist Reviews Current Dental Advancements and Trends
Dr. Wayde Fawcett examines emerging trends in cosmetic dentistry and shares how his practice has evolved to keep pace with the ever-changing landscape of the industry.
Houston, TX – Within the last several years, many advancements in dental technology, materials, and procedural techniques have defined emerging trends in the field of cosmetic dentistry. As a Houston dentist for over 30 years, Dr. Wayde Fawcett says he has remained abreast of many of these trends, incorporating state-of-the-art technologies and services into his practice to keep in step with evolving industry standards.
Dr. Fawcett explains that, over the years, cosmetic dentistry has increasingly trended toward the development of stronger, longer-lasting, and more natural-looking dental restorations that provide for improved dental health and function. He notes that the pursuit of this goal has lead to progress and notable industry achievements on several fronts, which include:
- Technological advancements in dental imaging, such as digital x-rays and 3D dental scans
- Improvements in the strength, quality, customizability, and appearance of ceramic tooth restorations
- Use of all-ceramic restorations and tooth-colored composite materials instead of amalgam and metal-bonded alternatives
- Increased patient education and communication
- Use of 3D dental imaging and CAD/CAM for accurate diagnosis, customized smile design, individualized treatment planning, and restoration fabrication
- Increase in comprehensive smile makeover and full-mouth restoration procedures
- Preservation of more healthy tooth, gum, and bone tissue due to the rise in more conservative procedures and collaborative treatment planning among specialists
For Dr. Fawcett, assimilating these new standards and advancements into his practice and allowing them to guide and progress his approach to treatment has empowered him as a dentist. At his practice, he explains that his focus is on delivering the highest level of care using every resource possible to achieve that goal – from diagnosis to the final result. At every stage, Dr. Fawcett notes, the accuracy, versatility, and customization of the treatment process provides for a high level of patient satisfaction. It is his belief that dental imaging, digital smile design, and custom restoration fabrication with state-of-the-art ceramic materials enable him to create the most ideal smile for each patient.
Dr. Fawcett explains that, as more patients become educated about the way dental procedures can be performed and develop a greater understanding of the healthy, transformative results they can achieve, the more willing they may be to undergo comprehensive treatment plans. Ultimately, Dr. Fawcett hopes to see more dentists invest in the technology and continued education necessary to deliver the most advanced level of treatment and care to patients.
