Contemporary Cosmetic Dentistry-- Predictable Principles that “Facilitate and Replicate” the Smiles of Our Patients
DR. HUGH FLAX
Cosmetic dentistry is no longer a novelty as it was in the 1980’s......it is serious business. Patient expectations are growing so that you must learn to master the art and science not only in the front but the back of the mouth. Fortunately advancements in technology and materials have allowed dentists and their teams to be on the same page with the patient, lab, and specialist that help you create extraordinary results that are predictable and profitable for the practice and often affordable for patients.
