Esthetic (Cosmetic) dentistry was revolutionized in the early 90’s with the development of true adhesive for porcelain and resin. The biggest challenge of keeping the natural-looking restorations glued to teeth was finally overcome.
Another “game-changer” was brought into the field of cosmetic dentistry when the “soft” porcelain was introduced in the early 2000’s. This “new and improved” porcelain did not need the metal frame and more resilient than conventional porcelain for better wear and also looked more natural than ever before possible.
Dr. Jong had an early experience in comprehensive cosmetic dentistry since the 80’s and decided to pursue his training further in the field of esthetics. After his residency program, he went on to the post-doctoral program in esthetic dentistry at University of Buffalo, and earned his certificate of completion in 1999.
They say that our appearances are only “skin-deep”. Quite on the contrary, they run “deep”, in our minds, affecting our self-confidence, positive attitude, social life, eventually affecting our success in life. Evidences are in the photos – before and after photos, that is. We see them all too often during our before and after photo sessions. Smiles that are crooked, forced, unnatural before the make-over become brighter, wider and more natural and attractive after the patients witness the results they like.
