We will not demand any special powers of clairvoyance, because, frankly speaking, we do not have them. But, looking at current trends, it is fairly easy to predict future trends, and this is what we will do, with respect to cosmetic dentistry.
We can start with a reference only to the fact that cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that deals with “appearance”. We all know that the appearance of the teeth of a given person is one of the main elements (unconsciously) taken into account in determining how beautifully or otherwise we will rule this person. Indeed, although many of us do not realize this, the truth is that a person’s teeth are one of the first things that we evaluate about this person at the moment we meet them.
So, what is the probable future of dentistry, looking at current trends?
Well, for a start it is very likely that the state of cosmetic dentistry will continue to improve, as the world becomes more conscious. The conscious consciousness of society is one in which the human image (appearance) is of great importance: a society in which a person’s views go very long, determining how well or bad this person lives in life. And as society continues to move in this direction (towards the consciousness of the image), we can be sure that more and more people will feel pressure on the services offered by cosmetic dentistry.
To meet the growing demand for cosmetic dental services, we can almost be sure that more and more dental students will be attracted to this specialty. In fact, this is a trend that we already observe. This is also the specialty “where money” and seeing that most professionals are monetized today, we can be confident in this trend.
In the future, the technology of cosmetic dentistry is likely to evolve – perhaps to the extent that none of the procedures for the profession will be either uncomfortable or painful. It can also be a time when you can achieve really permanent teeth whitening. It can also be a time when really invisible devices for reinstalling the teeth will be available. This high-tech future, of course, refers to what is headed cosmetic dentistry.
