My Passion: The next “Big Thing” in Aesthetic Dentistry is here
My passion in medicine and dentistry is as much about the art of medicine as it is also about the talking to the patients. A big part of my job is to educate my patients, and in fact it is probably one of the most important aspect of the overall patient encounter. I love doing it, sitting face-to-face with a new patient for the first time, and try to understand their expectations and desires. It can be very challenging especially with individuals where English is not their first language. I have listened to many of my patients’ desires, and sometimes, I had wishes of my own. But invariable, whenever the teeth needed to be cosmetically improved, the cost was too prohibitive. I never let up and in the back of my mind I wanted to figure out how to do an inexpensive and non-invasive dental procedure that could enhance smiles. People should be able to afford to have plastic surgery AND improve the appearance of their teeth without taking out a second mortgage. Plastic surgery is fairly affordable nowadays. Miami where I do all my plastic surgery, the prices are very affordable, but not dental cosmetic procedures … Until Now!
But first let me tell you a bit about myself. I was born in Jordan. This was back in 1960. Lucky for me and my family, my parents were exceptionally westernized, and my dad worked for a Swedish pharmaceutical company. And as he moved up the corporate ladder, we moved to another country. The last move before the company decided to pull us in, was to Beirut Lebanon. We got caught in the middle of their civil war and barely escaped alive. We eventually got transferred to Sweden and that is where I spent the rest of my teenage years and also went to dental school there. But all throughout those years, I was a tinkerer. At the age of ten, I took our telephone apart to try to understand how voice can be converted to an electric signal. What I was really after was a way to make a speech activated typewriter. And the idea of coming up with an affordable cosmetic dental service was tinkering in my mind for several years. Until one day I came across a Swiss travel magazine offering non-invasive dental cosmetic dental services. It wasn’t affordable, but I knew then I was getting closer. And as soon as I came across this product, I knew that this is the one, the Next Big Thing in Dentistry.
Imagine you go to your dentist and ask him give you a new front end, or at least restore it. If you are talking crowns, it will be several thousands each tooth. Implants, ouch! a few thousand for the implant and a few more for the crown. The there are the other teeth too. And if you choose the simplest thing, veneers, it will cost you at least $1000 or $1500 a tooth. And with all these services, there are multiple appointments first for drilling and preparing the teeth, impressions, lab time etc. You see this is where I think a new bold service could make a difference. I needed to find something that doesn’t need drilling, no impressions and no laboratory, and certainly no root canal.
We call it the U-Smile-Veneers.
These veneers are revolutionary.
