Rise in demand for cosmetic dentistry
By Archita Datta Majumdar
Cosmetic dentistry takes the concept of dental health to the next level when feeling good merges with looking good to create an overall sense of well-being. Taking a leaf out of cosmetic surgery, the venture into cosmetic dentistry has paved the way for enhanced and superior facial transformations way more than simply straightening crooked teeth. For detractors, this is not an authentic science since it does not concern itself with treatment and cure as much as it is focused on image. In reality, however, modern-day cosmetic dentists have successfully merged both these fields to offer a comprehensive treatment package to their clients.
