Cosmetic Dentistry in Brentwood: The Quest for a Beautiful Smile

There is nothing new about the quest for a beautiful smile. Cosmetic dentistry in Brentwood as practiced at the Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry draws on all the latest innovations – but people have been trying to improve their smiles for thousands of years.

In that sense, one of the earliest cosmetic dentistry innovations was oral hygiene. Clean, healthy teeth make for a more attractive smile, after all. Even before the first toothbrush came along in the late 1400s, people used to clean their teeth with sticks!

Research into early dentistry is a bit sketchy, but we know that thousands of years ago, people replaced missing teeth with shells, ivory, and  bone. Primitive dentures came along around 700 B.C. More recently, porcelain became popular.

Cosmetic dentistry in Brentwood as we know it today is quite new – a development of the late 1900s. That’s when teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and dental implants really came into their own. A resin material was introduced in the early 1960s, but it wasn’t until the 1980s that it became practical, when a light system for curing it was developed. Today, resin is common in composite fillings, bonding, and other procedures.

Movie stars have had their teeth fixed with veneers as far back as the 1930s. Those early veneers were crude by today’s standards; they were known to fall off after being worn for short periods of time. A method of permanently bonding porcelain veneers came along in 1982.
